On July 18, 5urprise's Gong Myung was one of the guests on KBS2's 'Hello Counselor'. 

One female high school student who sent in her story for this episode touched everyone in the panel and in the audience with her difficulties. A senior in high school, she told the audience how she's working part time in multiple jobs to support her father, who recently got divorced with her mother. Her father is too busy going out every night and having fun, even taking money from his daughter to go play screen golf. 

Unable to hide his disdain, Gong Myung shed tears, saying, "She's the age for needing to be loved the most but she isn't being loved as much as she deserves it." 

Some of the audience members in term showed tears at the high school student's story, ultimately giving her the 1st place on the episode.

    Am I the only person who has a problem with this show on SO MANY LEVELS? Counselling and therapy is entirely about professing all your inner demons, heartache, whatever to someone who is willing to listen and provide advice. How is someone supposed to be honest with THEMSELVES, let alone the world, when they're being blasted across national television? Like how honest can you get with yourself and what's the extent of the details you can give without being judged by society?

    Nobody is judging this young woman but they're certainly judging her Papa. Now his behaviour is public. And perhaps he'll be shamed and get a bloody job where HE is the parent and she can be a child.

    Yep, I agree that publicizing the dad's problem will induce a change in behaviour, but at the same time, how much of what she said he said is detailed enough (cuz remember, there's a limit to what you can say on national tv, plus editting) for hosts, the audience, and all of korea to make any judgement or suggestion. And how long will the change in behaviour last? Just until media attention blows past? Then that's not good counselling at all.

    She was probably encouraged by people at her school to appear. She seems to have a support system. And as far as I'm concerned I only care about her well being. Hopefully this gives her courage to stop enabling him.

    Hopefully. But when you put yourself outthere on national tv like that, the reaction from the public can drive you in unexpected directions.

    Sure if you believe the misconception that all Koreans are heartless assholes who know nothing.

    I understand that a lot of people would be upset at the dad but let's be mindful that divorce is a very painful and hard thing and his dad's way of coping for the pain was to go out and have fun in order to escape his reality. He was probably too hurt to notice how hard his daughter is working for the both of them. I know that's a lame excuse but still. Maybe he wasn't like this before the divorce and was actually a good father. Idk. I do hope too that he'll get his senses back and recognize all the hardship his daughter is going through for them and give her the love she rightfully deserves.

    this is never an excuse. if you decide to have a child you must know that the child's well being ALWAYS comes first before your needs and feelings. since you brought life into this world you're responsible to take care of that living being. if you can't do that much just refrain from having babies. it's not that hard to do, we're not living in middle ages dammit ^^
