Even though Yoo Jae-suk looks cheerful and open about his personality and career, when it comes to his family, as common people do, he keeps things private. Therefore, there are not many sightings of him with his family. However, a source once caught Yoo Ji-ho and Na Kyung-eun in a park with Na Kyung-eun holding Yoo Ji-ho’s hands and walking around just like a normal mother. However, even though there is not much for the public to see, it is believed they are living together as a happy family.
