So Hee troubled childhood revealed

So Hee of Wonder Girls, Nation’s Little Sister has always displayed a cheerful and happy image when on screen to viewers. So it was a bit of a surprise to learn of So Hee’s troubled past recently as it caught the attention of viewers.

So Hee’s father, Ahn Byung Guan expressed that even though So Hee appears cheerful on the outside, she is actually not like that inside as he revealed their family past. When So Hee was in fourth grade, her parents divorced. She ended up living with her father and her sister who is 6 years older. But bad times continued, the clothes factory that So Hee’s father was managing folded soon after he divorced. In order to survive, he ended up working as a courier delivery man on motorbike to support So Hee and her sister.

Despite So Hee possibly feeling hurt and having a hard time dealing with the divorce, she was always encouraging and egging her father on, “Why are your shoulders sagging?” “Have strength!”

So Hee and her sister still keeps in contact with their mother.

He added, “So Hee has been a very obedient kid since she was small and is very trusting of me, always encouraging me. Even if no one tells her, she knows her responsibility and never creates trouble for anyone. But I don’t feel safe letting her work in the industry. She is now not by my side and I can’t follow her everyday. Although she won’t do anything silly and can take good care of herself, it’s such a competitive industry and there’s always gossip and rumours. As long as she is safe, I will be contented.”

“Recently, she doesn’t act cute (throw tantrum) with me but rather she keeps saying, “Dad, I won’t let you suffer again in future. You just enjoy your life,” I feel like she is an adult when saying this. I am very thankful after hearing these from my daugther. I hope that I can assist her in her path to reach her dreams. To me, So Hee is not a celebrity, she is my adorable daugther.”

After hearing about So Hee’s family, netizens expressed their surprise, leaving replies such as “I thought she only had a happy past” “It must have been difficult but she’s grown up beautifully” “have strength”.
