For those who watch Knowing Brothers, everyone knows that there are two words that can’t come out of Lee Sang-min’s mouth: divorce and debt. This is because Lee Sang-min is a divorcee, and he also used to have many debts until he joined as a cast member of Knowing Brothers. Because of these facts, the other cast members and even himself often used his situation as a joke in the variety show. Not to mention, there is also another divorcee besides him among the cast, none other than Seo Jang-hoon, which makes the other cast member go more wildly when it comes to jokes about divorce.
Among the cast members of Knowing Brothers, the one that makes jokes about divorce the most is Lee Soo-geun, although he often makes the joke to tease Seo Jang-hoon. However, even though the jokes are only meant for Seo Jang-hoon, they always end up involving Lee Sang-min too.

Moreover, his restaurant business also failed which landed him in another debt of 6.9 billion won.
However, after he joined Knowing Brothers, his financial state became better, so much so that he could even make a joke about it. In one of the episodes, he even bragged that he is finally able to take out a credit card. What a relief!
