SSAK3 is a project group consisting of veteran idols Rain and Lee Hyori, as well as the nation’s MC, Yoo Jae Suk. The group was created through the variety show, Hangout with Yoo, where viewers could find out what Yoo Jae Suk does on his off days. The idea for the trio came about when the producer of the show wanted to bring back upbeat songs for the summer.
The group released the song, “Beach Again” in July, and went on to top the charts. Interestingly enough, all three members of the group are happily married and well into their middle-years. Despite this, they proved strong popularity, even gaining a fansite in the midst of their promotions.
Their fansite is named Ssak G, after SSAK3 themselves, as well as Linda G, Lee Hyori’s stage name for the group.
It was pretty entertaining for other groups’ fans to see, as they managed to assimilate perfectly into the current idol culture.
It seems that despite Yoo Jae Suk’s worries, he mastered the performance and got along just fine with his group members!
It is said that Kim Tae Hee also highly supports her husband’s activities as part of SSAK3 as it was a sort of comeback for him to the industry too. This is no surprise as his song “KKANG” suddenly went viral last month.
Yoo Jae Suk looks adorable, despite being well into his 40s!
The group also is said to donate the profits from their promotions to charity. Good looks, skills and a kind heart! No wonder they’re monster rookies!
There was even a hilarious episode where Linda G tried to steal the spotlight from U-DORAGON.
Netizens found the trio amusing, expressing how cute they were! They especially loved U-DORAGON and his baby face.
