He said, "I'm revealing this for the first time now, but because of Hyun Joong's abuse incident last year and then the pregnancy incident, we couldn't raise our faces. We haven't gone outside even once until April. We lived with one candle lit outside our house. I thought something would go wrong at that rate."
He continued, "It might be because of [the living situations], but his mother said, 'If he commits suicide, I can't live. I can't see him commit suicide in front of me,' and wrote a letter that was like a will. She wrote, 'You came here because I didn't take proper care of you. I am largely at fault. I will leave this world first so you live on'."
He added, "I was so mad that I ripped it all. I thought, if my wife died and my child died, how could I live? I convinced her out of it. Aside from revealing what's the truth or not, I am thankful that we are alive, that we did not end up holding funerals even though we were at risk of suicide."
Do you think the father should have revealed Kim Hyun Joong's mother's mental state publicly?
