“The Glory” Jung Sung Il “Unfortunate childhood… I filled my stomach with the water that stagnated between the sidewalk blocks”
Jung Sung Il talked about his difficult childhood on “You Quiz”.
“The Glory” Jung Sung Il appeared as a guest on tvN’s entertainment program “You Quiz“, which aired on Feb 1st.
On this day’s broadcast, Jung Sung Il talked about his unfortunate childhood. He explained, “I met my mother late. She was ill and recuperated far away.”
He continued, “My father was a free soul, so he didn’t stay at home. When I was in my third year of high school, my mother got better and came. My mother asked me if I should go to college. I’d never studied. My mother advised me to look for something that focuses on practical skills. She told me about the broadcasting and entertainment department. That’s how I became an actor.”
He shed tears, “Since my parents weren’t there, my older sister was almost my parents. My grandmother was there, but she had difficulty moving her body. At that time, both my older sister and I were elementary school students. We took care of our grandmother. We even helped her with urine and feces.”
He shared, “I lived in a small house with my grandmother and sister. My grandmother passed away when I was in sixth grade. My sister raised me until I met my mom. We are only two years apart.”
He caused regret by explaining, “I drank the water that stagnated between the sidewalk blocks until my sister came. I waited for the sand to sink. I filled my stomach with that water.”
