After graduating to the senior ranks, Yoo continued to play with both Jung and Shin Baek-cheol, her partner in her last year of junior play. She and Shin were mixed doubles runners-up at the 2010 Swiss Open Super Series. Later that year, she and Jung won their first Grand Prix title, the Korea Grand Prix. However, shortly afterward, both pairings were split up.

Yoo, Bae Yeon-ju, Jung Kyung-eun, and Bae Seung-hee, among others, were coached by Yoo's father Yoo Gap-soo both at Sungji Girls' High School and later at Korea Ginseng Corporation.[2]
