With Korean Parents Day having just passed, idols who’ve expressed their gratitude to their parents by paying off all their debt have resurfaced online.
Here are 3 idols who succeeded in the entertainment industry and then paid off their parents’ debt as a token of their gratitude for all that they’ve done to raise them:
Chungha recently appeared on Olive’s Everyone’s Kitchen and revealed that she paid off all of her family’s debt.
Chungha shared, “I paid off all our family’s debt and even purchased an expensive designer bag for my mother.” When she was asked, “But doesn’t she find it difficult to spend money that her daughter earned?” she replied, “That’s why I bought it for her myself” and flashed a big smile.
Back in 2011, IU appeared on a TV variety show and revealed that she paid off all of her parents’ debt after the success of “Good Day”.
On another show, IU shared that her parents got scammed which led to the devastation of her household. She added, “There was a time when our family lived apart, and that’s when I became more certain of my dreams.”
3. Girl’s Day’s Hyeri
Hyeri, who debuted with Girl’s Day back 2010 and is currently active as an actress, revealed that her family used to struggle so much that she had to live apart from her parents.
In 2014, Hyeri used her savings to buy her parents a nice apartment in Jamsil along with a nice car.
