A recent broadcast of SBS' special program 'Dad Is Pregnant' featured a father who attempted to wear a 10-kilogram (22 lbs) maternity belt in order to understand his wife's childbearing pain.

With just two weeks left until his wife was to give birth to their second child, 37-year old Kim Chang Yong who had been married for five years did not quite understand his wife's pain.

However, upon wearing the maternity belt, he faced numerous daily challenges such as having trouble kneeling down to tie his shoe and trouble sleeping due to the bulging belly.

He also had trouble doing the dishes and barely managed to walk up the stairs which he then slowly began to understand what his wife Kim Hyun Kyung (29) had to go through on a daily basis.

Kim Chang Yong even decided to eat the same meals as his wife who happened to be diabetic, avoiding sweet and salty foods, as well as soda beverages and limiting his carbohydrate intake.  

It didn't end there.  In order to get the full experience, Mr. Kim decided to find out what it was like to give birth for himself.

Soon, his facial expression became distorted as he began to scream out loud in much agony during the pain simulation.  Mr. Kim commented prior to the experiment, "I can tolerate it if the pain is similar to an appendicitis."  However, he gave up within three minutes wailing about.

When the doctor asked if he could continue, he replied, "I don't think I can do it. I'm sorry."  "Wow, this is unbelievable."

Afterward, he told his wife, "I wish I can bear the burden instead. I'm sorry that I can't," and showing affection, after fully comprehending her struggles.

women should go to the army for two years to experience the pain that korean men go through.

I guess this would make childbearing less painful

To the experience they need to add having to pee at least every hour, the sensation like your spine is being twisted near to snapping, daily vomiting, daily heartburn, being too hot all the time, stretchmarks and strangers rubbing your tummy.

I wish every man would do this. Then they'd have more insight into what their significant others are going through.

Bullshit, no need to showing off ! You just need to be kind and more understanding  to your pregnant wife !

AshleyDaUnicorn Wang_Sejung Tuesday, April 18, 2017

He's not. He's literally suffering to understand the pain that it takes to bear a child. I don't know a lot of men who would care that much for their wife to do that.

Wang_Sejung AshleyDaUnicorn Tuesday, April 18, 2017

But again, he really don't need to do that. If I was his wife i would never accepted this comedy ! He just needs to be kind to his wife !

AshleyDaUnicorn Wang_Sejung Tuesday, April 18, 2017

He wanted to, to understand and suffer along with his wife. It's not comedy at all, he seems to be extremely kind and caring towards his wife according to his comments and the videos above. If that doesn't show kindness, then I don't know what does. There is no "perfect husband" or "perfect wife." As long as you love each, care for each other, are there for each other, that seems to be a good enough spouse.

Wang_Sejung AshleyDaUnicorn Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Agree with you ! As long as you love each, care for each other, are there for each other that seems to be good enough, NO NEED TO PLAY COMEDY !!!!

AshleyDaUnicorn Wang_Sejung Tuesday, April 18, 2017

That isn't comedy. It shows that women suffer just to bring new humans into this world. He wanted to suffer along with his wife.

Wang_Sejung AshleyDaUnicorn Tuesday, April 18, 2017

You obviously don't understand our culture. We are Koreans not Americans ! We don't need such childish behavior to show our love !

AshleyDaUnicorn Wang_Sejung Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Don't stereotype Koreans or Americans. There is no reason why he can't do such a thing. There are many Americans who would not do this either.

AshleyDaUnicorn Wang_Sejung Tuesday, April 18, 2017

As for childish, if you believe love and suffering is childish, you should relearn the definition.

Wang_Sejung AshleyDaUnicorn Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Love not but suffering uselessly is stupid and childish !

AshleyDaUnicorn Wang_Sejung Tuesday, April 18, 2017

It's not useless. You yourself said he should understand his wife. You're contradicting yourself here. He wants to understand the pain his wife and all women go through.

vaxanne Wang_Sejung Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Wang Sejung, tell God He is childish for making the male seahorse incubate and give birth to their young instead of the female. Kindness is relative, so is empathy. You can "TRY" to be kind but may not necessarily be effective or meet the needs of the other party because you can't empathise

Wang_Sejung vaxanne Tuesday, April 18, 2017

dong saeng, it's how you show your empathy to the people in needs ? Are you going to take out your eyes to show your empathy to blind people ? For god sake !!! what is this childish argument ?!! Grow up dong saeng, you are 18 years old now !!!

AshleyDaUnicorn Wang_Sejung Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Your example is a different circumstance. To show your empathy for blind people, you might for example, cover your eyes for a day and witness what it is like to be blind. The husband himself did not actually get pregnant as it is pretty much physically impossible. Have you never heard of Buzzfeed? They did a similar experiment to experience the pain of pregnancy and in the end, acknowledged how woman must suffer to bring new lives.

I've said it before I will say it again and again and again. YOU are NOT Korean and you do NOT go to SNU. If you did you would of been aware that the school has a lesbian Student Body President named Kim Bo Mi and an LGBT club, which you denied existed and you also said that the school doesn't allow LGBT people to attend. WRONG! You also don't live in South Korea because you claimed that gay clubs are illegal, again WRONG! There a several gay clubs up and running which have never been raided by police or shut down. This is the proof of Kim Bo Mi - koreaherald[dot]com/view[dot]php?ud=20151120000762 - Here is the proof of the LGBT club at SNU - queerinsnu[dot]com/page/eng_desk_link[dot]html - and here is the proof off all the gay clubs that are up and running that you apparently believe don't exist - travelgayasia[dot]com/seoul-gay-bars/ - You also claim to be a Buddhist but call out to God and claim that he made you. Buddhists DO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD. You CAN'T even READ Hangul when people comment to you using it. YOU ARE NOT KOREAN AND YOU DO NOT GO TO SNU.

Enough of your pathetic nonsense wanker. Maybe in the future brain transplant will be possible, then perhaps you might be saved. Know your place dongsaeng!
