"All of a sudden, Geun Shik crushed his hip due to a motorcycle accident," HaHa recalled the unthinkable moment. "Without noticing the chin there, Sang Gyun turned around and injured his arm... With that, a golfer couldn't use his arm anymore, and a friend who dreamt of becoming any action star couldn't use his leg. They were unemployed and so I said, 'let's all just live together,'" he added.
Having promised to live together when they were little, HaHa lived with his friends for two years after the accident, planning on how to make a living once again.

During that time, he had received much criticism from people saying not to do it, or that he wasn't going to make it. HaHa then stated firmly, "I will prove to you that the restaurant will be a success."
His friend said, "I thought maybe if I were like HaHa, I could do something like that but I probably wouldn't have done that," thanking HaHa for his assistance.

HaHa continued, "Honestly, people think I helped my friends out; however, they helped me instead. If it weren't for them, I wouldn't be here right now," illustrating the importance of true friendship.
