Kang Gary And His Son Ha-oh
After three years of being on a break from the entertainment industry, Kang Gary finally introduced and revealed his son to the public. Since he left the variety show Running Man in late 2016, and went on hiatus from television, Gary has been very private about his little family. However, in early 2020, Kang Gary revealed his son for the first time by joining the variety show The Return of Superman.
In the first episode of The Return of Superman of Kang Gary and his son that aired on February 8th, 2020, Kang Gary introduced his son to the viewers. The rapper’s son’s name is Kang Ha-oh. He was born in November 2017 and now he is 2 years old. Kang Ha-oh bravely introduced himself for the first time on national TV through the family’s first episode of The Return of Superman.
During the first episode of The Return of Superman, Ha-oh surprised viewers when he showed off his intelligence by speaking with complex vocabulary. No one could believe that he is only 2 years old but his vocabulary is shockingly wide. Even the camera staff were completely surprised when they heard Ha-oh speak with difficult words for his age. The camera staff were whispering to each other and said that Ha-oh is really smart and they could not believe that he knew difficult words even for adults.
Not only can Ha-oh speak and understand difficult vocabulary, but he also can remember long lists of numbers such as his mother’s phone number. It showed in the family’s first episode of the show and he blurted out his mother’s phone number on TV. The 2 years old kid is not only smart, but he is also fashionable. Although he is only 2 years old, he already knows popular brands and has his own specific style that he likes. He even asked his father, Kang Gary, for a specific brand that he wanted to wear.
Reason For His Hiatus From The Entertainment Industry
In October 2016, Kang Gary decided to leave the popular variety show SBS’ Running Man after being on the show for seven years to study music and to focus on his career as a rapper. A year after leaving the variety show, the rapper then announced the news of his marriage to his non-celebrity girlfriend in April 2017 and in November the same year he welcomed his first son to the world. And since then Gary has not been on television and has been on a long break from the entertainment industry for about three years. He left the industry to focus on his role as a husband for his wife and new dad to his son.
Three years after being on a hiatus, Kang Gary decided to join the popular variety show The Return of Superman with his 26-month-old son Kang Ha-oh. It is the rapper’s first variety show after leaving the entertainment industry back in 2016. At first, it was revealed that Kang Gary was worried to accept the opportunity to join the show. The staff of the variety show said that it was hard to cast Gary and his son to join the show. Gary’s news of joining The Return of Superman was warmly welcomed by fans and viewers. That is because Gary has so far chosen to hide his son and his little family from the media.
Ha-oh’s Charm And His Musical Talent
Since appearing in the popular variety show The Return of Superman, Kang Gary’s son Kang Ha-oh stole a lot of attention with his charm and intelligence. The adorable baby boy is really taking after his father, and he is already a talented musician. Through the variety show, he showed off his singing skills. He can sing simple harmonies on key and rhythm.
Not only can he sing with harmonies and difficult lyrics, but he can also play various instruments such as guitar. Even though he is only 2 years and 2 months old, Kang Ha-oh has shown his interest in music, singing, and playing various instruments, much like his dad who is a musician and famous rapper. In one episode of The Return of Superman, Kang Gary takes his son, Kang Ha-oh to instrument stores to buy him a guitar. During the episode, Ha-oh looks like an expert guitarist who looks for a guitar that he needs. He likes big guitars and wants to buy a guitar that is similar to Teacher Won Bae’s guitar. He also plays the guitar to test it.
When the two, dad and son, look for a guitar in the market, Ha-oh shows that he knows the value of money although he is only 2 years old. Most kids his age would just pick whatever they want without minding the price. But not for Ha-oh, he knew that the guitar he wants is really expensive so he suggested his dad looking around. They went to different stores looking for different instruments but after knowing all the prices, Ha-oh wanted the guitar that they looked the first time. The two then went back to the first shop and he picked the cheapest guitar. He never forgets to bow and thank his dad for buying it for him. Ha-oh is indeed one of a kind kid.
Ha-oh’s Cute Interaction With The Camera Lady
Kang Ha-oh is really a charming and smart kid. Not only he is smart and good at talking and remembering, but also a genius at music and playing instruments, Kang Ha-oh is also good at socializing with people around him. He always greets people who are older than him and shows his manners. He is always considerate of the people around him, especially the staff of The Return of Superman who always followed him to record the videos. There are many staff members who work to shoot video at his home. Ha-oh always greets them when he wakes up in the morning and starts shooting. When he eats something, he never forgets to share it with the staff.
One of the staff that caught Kang Ha-oh’s attention was the camerawoman. In one episode of the show, Kang Gary took Ha-oh to watch the moving truck. After watching the moving truck, they went out for lunch. Ha-oh then also asked the producer and cameraman to take a seat while they were eating. When he saw the camera lady, he asked his father to go to the bathroom so that he could share his food with the camera lady. He also sat beside her shyly and touched her foot with his. He even confessed that he liked her and acted cute toward her. He really looks adorable.
In another episode, when Gary cooked a dalgona with a frying pan for him that turned into a horror thriller, Ha-oh had to ask the camera lady to help him and his dad in a hurry to make a dalgona. When the camera lady helped them to make a dalgona, Ha-oh even cheered her on. Kang Ha-oh is hilariously cute.
