83-year-old Jung Gu Hee has been nursing her paralyzed son for the past 28 years. 

On the recent airing of 'Capture that Moment How Is that Possible', the story about Jung Gu Hee and her son Song Wan Seop (53) was shared.

Song Wan Seop severely injured the lower part of his body following a hit-and-run accident when he was just 23-years-old. His legs have become extremely weak after multiple surgeries, which ultimately made it impossible for him to sit or stand.  Spinal stenosis is also a factor that caused his inability to walk.

As a result, Song Wan Seop had to live laying down on his stomach in the small room of his house for the past 28 years. The only reason he was able to live through the brutal conditions was his mother who took care of him by his side.

Jung Gu Hee shared concerns about her son, saying, "I'm able to take care of him now but I'm worried about who would be taking care of him after I'm gone."

Song Wan Seop also shared a comment, and said, "I just want to take a walk around my neighborhood. I even dream of just going outside sitting in a wheelchair."

As a nurse, I would gladly go over to Korea and help take care of him, even not knowing any Korean. She needs a lot of help and it can wear on you.

A mother's love knows no bounds.

I can imagine the tears both have shed over the years. The mother in pain for her child because of what he went through and her fear of leaving him alone when she has passed. And on his part, I can imagine  him feeling sad for not being able to do things for himself, and he may even feel guilty because instead of him taking care of his aging mother she is the one still caring for him. It's  heartbreaking.

Practically no comments on stuff like this from Korea. If this article was based on racism, it would've had at least 500 comments bashing Koreans on the first hour.

oh no.. This is such a sad new I am hearing on my birthday :( That hit-and-run person should be ashamed walking around freely when he/she made this guy's life paralyzed for life. That person should be punished for the rest of his/her life!

Mother's love is the greatest. We kids can be a bit too much from time to time but our parents still put up with us. Hats down to this woman. Both she and her son are very brave and strong.
