SHINee's Minho broke down in tears while talking about his parents on '48 Hours'.

On this week's episode, Minho spent quality time with his father by going out for drinks at his father's favorite restaurant. During the interview, Minho revealed, "All of my family members have visited this restaurant except me." He continued, "I don't have many memories with my dad. I didn't know when I was young but my dad was dedicated and worked hard for my hyung and me. My mother also helped us to grow up stronger than anyone else."

Minho couldn't hold back the tears, and after a moment he revealed, "To be honest, I often hid my feelings. I lived apart [from my family] at an early age, and I didn't want to show my busy [struggling] sides. I didn't like seeing them upset. So I tried to be strong and acted like I was tough." 

Check out Minho's sincere interview in the clip above.

this is why most parents don't want their kid to be an idol..aside from having to be apart at an early age, they all know it's not easy when an agency take the shots and you know your kid will have a hard time esp with the competition..they may have success or not but we all know there's a lot of pressure, bullying and stress involved in this work

Leetuek was not one of those people who grew up with a happy family. Leeteuk is the younger of two children, and he had to go through his parents filing for a divorce at such an early age. His father, Park Yong In, and his mother parted ways on not-so-good terms in 1988. Leeteuk was only 5 years old at the time and had trouble understanding why his parents were separated. Leeteuk was beaten up by his father, it has gotten so bad that he ended up not feeling anything for his father but fear. His parents fought a lot, and he was frequently at the receiving end of corporal punishment, even at a young age. It led to Leeteuk feeling nothing but bitterness and fear towards his father during his childhood. The experience was traumatizing for Leeteuk, leading to tears (despite trying to hold back and laugh it off at first) when he talked about it in public. When Leeteuk was in the military, his father murdered his grandparents and then killed himself. So much happened to him. So shut up if you know shit

Preach it! Not everyone understands our leader-nim's past experiences so thank you for explaining it to the one who commented that.

Seeing him cry really hurts me. Especially since he's always playful and goofing around. Seeing him and Taemin cry is really hard for me (its hard for me watching any of the members cry tbh), cause they're not the type of people to cry easily. You can tell how much he really loves his family. He does indeed keep his feelings to himself, thats what I've noticed from watching their past debut videos. Many of the members debuted at an early age, it must've been hard for them especially when you're at that age in which you need your parents by your side the most.

Layni_Tsuki JungHalla0903 Thursday, January 5, 2017

I totally agree with you, but, where did Taemin cry?

Maggie Layni_Tsuki Thursday, January 5, 2017

SHINee all cried during their Melon Awards Artist of the Year 2013. And he teared up a bit during his I'm Going To School variety show when his 3-day classmates sang a song for him and GaIn. He just turned around so the camera wouldn't capture him crying. SHINee maknae also doesn't like to show tears.

Layni_Tsuki Maggie Thursday, January 5, 2017

Ahh, right, I watched those. ♡ Our maknae is so precious.

AnnaWatermelon Layni_Tsuki Thursday, January 5, 2017

He also cried during a radio show back in 2008 I can't find the name of

Maggie AnnaWatermelon Thursday, January 5, 2017

Correct, but that's not on the broadcast tv, so I didn't mention. I believe everyone cried on that radio show too.

Maggie Wednesday, January 4, 2017

Minho rarely cried. He is a really good son and super nice guy. His parents raise him well.
