Even if you don’t understand Korean, you can get the main gist of their touching and inspirational story. KBS Dong Heng, a documentary program aimed at telling the stories of struggling families and raising awareness and welfare support on their behalf, previously broadcast the story of Dad Hongchul and his two sons.
Despite their hardships — Dad Hongcul being deaf and recently injuring his eyes at work, Mom having passed away due to illness, and their living conditions being very poor — loving Dad Hongchul works hard for his sons, and brothers Sangyoon and Sangmin support and worry for their dad in return.
On this Lunar New Year special episode, they go back to visit Dad Hongchul and his sons after the first broadcast aired and see that his small street vendor business has many more customers after locals saw and heard his story. Also, volunteers and supporters have contributed and come together to build a new home for the family of three and clean up and repair the area.
Seunggi, who has been with and supported the KBS Dong Heng program since 2009, said he too saw the previous broadcast about Dad Hongchul and his two sons and was deeply moved by their story and came because of them.
