Park Sung Hoon Reveals ‘Crying a Lot’ After Phone Call With His Mother

In 2023, the actor gained the attention of the public when the show “Free Doctor” mentioned Park Sung Hoon’s family during an episode, covering celebrities coming from a wealthy family.

“Everyone in the family except for Park Sung Hoon either went to a medical or law school,” as mentioned by an outlet.

However, the actor shut down these claims and revealed that his family was not a chaebol.

During his appearance in “Yoo Quiz on the Block,” Park Sung Hoon told hosts Yoo Jae Suk and Jo Se Ho that he “wasn’t raised in a rich family, especially after the IMF crisis.”

 “Our family’s condition even became more difficult. I didn’t get any support besides transportation fees when I was in high school because I was that poor.”

In addition to this, he also revealed the time when he had his first day off in the military. Since he was away from months, Park Sung Hoon was excited to go home and be with his family.

However, instead of getting the feeling of excitement from his parents, his mother told him not to take the day off.

According to Park Sung Hoon, his mother revealed their situation and was told that they were surviving off of just kimchi and water. If the actor insisted on meeting his family on his day off, there would be no extravagant food waiting for him.

 “After the phone call, I think I cried a lot.”

After hearing this, fans flocked to social media and expressed how proud they are of Park Sung Hoon, noting that he deserved all the fame and projects that he has.
