Chun Myung Hoon visits his dad for the first time in 10 years
Chun Myung Hoon of 90s idol group NRG made an appearance on the recent episode of SBS' 'Strong Heart'. He shared an emotional story about his relationship with his father.
Chun Myung Hoon began saying, "I was raised in a very strict household. My father graduated from law school, and fought in the war in Vietnam two times. He worked as a detective who was in charge of violent crimes for 30 years."
"He didn't approve of me debuting as a celebrity so I put on [unapproved performances] on college streets since I was in middle school. Honestly, until NRG's 2nd and 3rd album, I had only graduated from middle school. But because I would be too ashamed to admit to my son later on that I had only completed middle school, I attended an adult high school... When I told my father that I would drop out of school, my father put handcuffs on me. We were both shocked. After I finally told him that I would diligently go to school, he let me go. But the day after, I continued on the path of becoming a back dancer. I ran away from home after lying so I could avoid him. I didn't contact him at all during all my years of back dancing, Hamo Hamo, and NRG. After that incident, I didn't see his face for about 10 years. But 6 months ago, my mother called me and told me that my father was in the last stages of lung cancer. At first, I couldn't believe it. My head was in shock, but it didn't feel real in my heart. I went to visit him a few days after, and I saw an unfamiliar elderly man with no hair. When he saw me, he started crying. I was so shocked. He wasn't the fire-like father I knew,"
bursting into tears as he relived the moments he spent with his father for the first time in 10 years.
He added, "He was unconscious after his treatment, but thankfully, he is now conscious. What makes me a really undutiful son is that I lived the past ten years resenting my father, but he proudly bragged about me to the nurses even while he was in the ICU."
Chun Myung Hoon also sent a message to his ill father: "Even though it may be late, I want to live happily and think of my father first before I act so I can pay for my wrongdoings as a son."
