Oh Ji-ho’s Reveals His Adorable Daughter and His Beautiful Wife On the Television Program The Return Of Superman
In the latest episode of KBS The Return Of Superman program on May 8, 2016, famous actor Oh Ji-ho introduced his beautiful wife and his adorable daughter to the public. As Oh Ji-ho comes home after work, his wife is feeding his daughter. His daughter, who has big curious eyes, smiles broadly as soon as she sees him.
However, Oh Ji-ho reveals a funny story as he talks about his new family. In the interview with producers, he shares, “A lot of people were really curious about my daughter. But, when I would show them a picture of my daughter, they don’t exactly say that she’s pretty. Even though she may not fulfill the expectations that others may have, in my eyes, she is very beautiful.”
In this program, Oh Ji-ho also revealed that he claimed to be overwhelmed to think of just withdrawing from the program. “My first shooting was about the compilation of my 100-days-old daughter and that was the first time I looked after a baby. I had to wait for photos and photos, but I was really excited,” he explained during a press conference for Showdown.
“It feels difficult for me and I feel like I’m making my baby stressed. I thought whether it would be better for me to say to the scriptwriter that I should leave because I couldn’t afford it anymore.”
Fortunately, the drama actor of Third Hospital did not give up, for the sake of the future of his little daughter. He takes the positive side by claiming that he can survive in Return of Superman. In addition to mementos, the program was also able to develop Oh Seo-heun’s abilities.
“The next shooting is difficult, too, but I decided to be positive because it’s not easy to record the growth of my daughter to be shown in the future. I think it will be a happy memory for her. Besides that, I think this can be used to develop her social abilities naturally. This will help her develop later,” concluded Oh Ji-Ho.
