TV Chosun's 'We Are Divorced' deals with celebrities who have undergone real divorce in their lives. The program delivers real portrays of how people lead lives after divorce, providing some of the couples with a chance to look back on their mistakes. On this episode, Park Se Hyuk and Kim Yoo Min met up with each other for the first time in 2 years since the split.
First, the two former idols held personal interviews with the crew of 'We Are Divorced'. Yoo Min, who is raising their son Min Hyuk on her own, opened up about their first encounter. "[Park Se Hyuk] confessed to me on the day that we met. We dated for about a year, got married, and had a baby right away."
On the other hand, Park Se Hyuk reflected on the topic of their marriage. "I think things went wrong as soon as we got married. Both of our families were the types to not back down against the other. Yoo Min's mother is very intimidating. Every word she says has a thorn in it."
Kim Yoo Min's mother also appeared with her daughter to share her input. When asked about Park Se Hyuk, Yoo Min's mother said, "On TV, he dared to call me his 'mother-in-law'. I about blew my fuse. How can he not once ask to see the baby, after the divorce?"
In addition, Kim Yoo Min stated that Park Se Hyuk was not there for her during her pregnancy, and that her parents were the only ones who helped her through it. She recalled that Park Se Hyuk resided in her parents' home for about 2 weeks, but they soon began living separately.
Later on, Park Se Hyuk and Kim Yoo Min finally arrived at the 'We Are Divorced' guest house. They talked seriously about their son Min Hyuk, as Kim Yoo Min asked, "Don't you have anything you want to know about Min Hyuk?" Park Se Hyuk responded, "On his birthday, I wanted to call but I had a feeling I would not be welcome. It felt uncomfortable."
Eventually, Yoo Min couldn't help but blow up, thinking about their complicated past. She said, "The last time you saw Min Hyuk was on his first birthday. When I was staying at home and couldn't move because of the pregnancy, you never even helped me once. We fought so much then, remember? You think that our divorce was because we were living in my parents' house, but that wasn't what it was for me." The issues were complicated for Park Se Hyuk as well, as he recalled, "There were things I needed to do, but [Yoo Min's parents] were doing everything, and it was kind of like I didn't have a place... I'm definitely the father, but it somehow feels like they took him. There is no place for me there."
Seeing the young couple shedding tears of frustration, MC Shin Dong Yup remarked, "It's not necessarily that one side did wrong and the other side did right. No one did wrong, but no one did right either."
