FT Island’s Minhwan and Yulhee: Updates on Their Married Life

Latest News of FT. Island’s Minhwan and Yulhee

In November 2018, FT. Island’s Minhwan revealed that he will appear on a variety show with his little family!


The variety show titled Mr. House Husband is being aired on KBS2 TV. He has replaced the former member, Kim Dong-hyun, who left the show and the show’s first episode of Minhwan’s family was aired on December 5th, 2018.


Minhwan and Yulhee revealed information about how they raise their child and about the life of a newlywed. However, since the couple was working in the entertainment industry as idols they hope their appearance on this variety show will bring positive and warm feedback from the public as they become a family while welcoming their baby boy.


As the variety show aired the first episode of Minhwan’s family, some of their fans left comments on MK Sports via Nate:

[+69, -2] Yulhee actually surprised me with how good she is at mothering, as for Choi Minhwan, though ㅋㅋㅋ

[+736, -20] Must be hard to be a mother at 22. There must be so many things she still wants to do. Find strength, raise him fast, and have fun later.

[+669, -11] What in the world.. a child gave birth to a child

+53, -0] I had to change the channel because I was horrified at how harshly he was treating the baby and it was giving me stress


The drummer of FT. Island, Minhwan, also revealed the possibility of having a second child. Being a newlywed and getting their first baby is really hard to do since they have to balance their lives as a couple and as parents as well.

Yulhee expressed her concern about how people looked at their dating news, pregnancy at such a young age, and their marriage, since they had to reveal them at the same time. Also, Minhwan said that he has thought about Yulhee a lot, especially about her being a wife and a mother at such a young age. He wants to support her during this experience and grow together with her as they both have to raise the baby, and he will try to help her more even it’s just a little.


After Yulhee put the baby, Jaeyul, to sleep, the couple headed to the kitchen and had a late night snack while talking about many things. Minhwan asked Yulhee if she wanted to go back to work again and she said that she only wants to raise Jjang-ie right now. Even though it’s not a job, but she feels responsible about a lot of things while taking care of her baby at home.


When Minhwan asked Yulhee if she wants another child, the former member of LABOUM, Yulhee, explained that maybe it will happen after Minhwan comes back from the military.

As the first episode was aired, many netizens reacted to the show leaving comments on an online community, such as:

[+152, -1] I got pissed watching… He’s a young guy and yet he’s acting like a conservative old fart. He treats the baby so roughly… The way he feeds the baby is practically child abuse. Does he not know how difficult it is when a baby gets indigestion? ㅠㅠ The mother is young but she seems to have a better handle on things than him. Sigh..

[+95, -2] He shouldn’t be greedy for a second if he can’t even take care of the one he has now ㅡㅡ

[+1,137, -18] “I prefer that you go back to work”, “I want to have a second baby soon”… what is he saying

[+140, -0] It’s painfully obvious that Yulhee’s the only one who’s been watching that baby all along

[+82, -0] You can so tell with the way he handles the baby that he’s only just now watching him for the sake of the cameras. Who in the world handles a baby so roughly like that? Ugh, I thought I was going to blow up.


That was all the news and information about FT. Island’s Minhwan and Yulhee. Let’s hope this little family will get support and love from the fans! Congratulations to their marriage and a warm welcome to the cutest baby boy, Jaeyul!
