Choi Tae-joon made his last appearance on ‘Hello Counselor’.
Wanna One’s Kang Daniel, Park Ji-hun and Hwang Min-hyun came out as guests for the Sept 4 broadcast of KBS 2TV’s ‘Hello Counselor’. That day was also MC Choi Tae-joon’s last appearance on the show.
Wanna One’s appearance brought a huge reaction from the audience. The members related to the participants’ concerns and shared their own opinions. The boy group also prepared a surprise stage for the audience.
The first concern was about a gambling-obsessed father. The son who sent in the concern talked about his father who had been gambling for fifteen years and lost money equivalent to the price of one apartment unit. The son also expressed his apologetic feelings towards his wife.
“My father tried smoking for a little while. He smoked for a year until I told him stop since it wasn’t good for his health. After hearing that, he stopped within a day,” Park Ji-hun shared. Kang Daniel also shared his own concerns, saying, “I think I’ve also been affected by my parents without knowing.”
The second concern was submitted by a man worried about his pregnant wife’s obsession with work. His wife would teach classes for twelve hours a day and work weekends, leaving no time for prenatal care or rest. The wife, who also came out as a guest, looked positive and unaffected by the whole situation, much to the MCs’ surprise.
The last concern was from a girl who was upset at having her appearance constantly compared with her sister’s. She revealed that her sister would also make fun of her appearance. Kang Daniel and Park Ji-hun sympathized with the girl’s concern and directed questions at her sister. “When I was little, I was severely bullied because of my appearance. I agree with MC Young-ja when I say that self-confidence comes from you and not from anyone else,” Kang Daniel said.
Choi Tae-joon also provided advice and responded clearly to the concerns. “My year here on this show felt like a year of school. The opportunity to come out here every week and listen to another’s worries was a very special experience for me. I hope to use what I learned through this experience to become a better actor,” he said.
