Hong Suk Chun says goodbye to his first car that he gifted himself back when he lost everything after 'coming out'


TV personality Hong Suk Chun said goodbye to his first car that he gifted himself.

In his recent Instagram post, Hong Suk Chun wrote:

"There are so many things I don't have. The first thing is hair. The second thing is a driver's license. Everyone became an adult and went to driving school, got a driver's license, and bought a car. On the other hand, I was so jealous and wanted to brag about driving a nice car. But driving in downtown Seoul was so scary. Cursing, fighting, and getting into accidents while driving were things that I thought didn't suit me.

After becoming a celebrity, I got popular and saved money. Although I was capable of buying a high-end car, I just bought a good enough car and trusted my manager with it. I thought it was a waste of money and a bluff. I saved money, bought a house, and worked hard.

At my life at 30 after 'coming out', with my memories of losing all popularity and being kicked out of all broadcasting stations, I became even stronger and viable while enduring those three and a half years. Late 40s. The first car I gifted myself after working hard for more than twenty years. It came to me in such a cool and pretty state, to the point where I wondered if I could even sit in the car. I now say my last goodbye to this wonderful guy who protected me like a medieval man in armor when I encountered danger on the road.

Like people, stores, and cars, everything that meets also has a moment of separation. I say goodbye to this precious and memorable guy after taking some pictures. I hope you meet a good owner. I hope you can be a reliable friend to [the new owner]. Thank you. You've done a great job. Goodbye."

This was very touching and beautiful. I love how Hong Suk Chun brought some humor to this post by acknowledging his lack of hair and the fact that he bought a car for his manager to drive him in. Lol. I know that his car meant to him more than just being a car. It was connected to him becoming successful and he got successful in spite of coming out in a conservative country.

Im sad that this happened to him but I’m happy that he got through it and now things are better for him. I love that he values something so many of us take for granted.
