Song Hae is a national treasure in Korea. He is one of those people who nobody wants to see, retire, and yet, he probably should. One of the coolest things I saw, was a few years ago, when he was on a show where his fellow members all got together and provided a wedding for him and his long time "wife". They never had a real wedding only a civil one, and so, the fellow members arranged for a complete wedding for Song Hae. His wife died soon after that, so it was a great memory for him. I think the whole nation cried during that wedding when it was broadcast on TV! It is still out there on Youtube. We need people like Song Hae so I sincerely pray for his recovery.
