Lee Hwi Jae’s Tears Touch Viewers Through “Superman Returns”


Lee Hwi Jae’s heartfelt tears are touching the viewers of “Superman Returns” more than ever. Lee Hwi Jae, who had been often spotted sitting comfortably for studio-recorded programs, has been exposing the “real side” of him through the reality TV show, on which he appears with his twin sons, Seo Eon and Seo Joon. Through the show, viewers of “Superman Returns” have witnessed the twins’ first steps and heard their first words.

Having to take care of his sons all by himself for the show, Lee Hwi Jae shared his fears to the viewers from the start. Towards the beginning of the show, he was caught on camera crying with the twins when he failed to comfort them. This side of Lee Hwi Jae is a big contrast to him as an MC in a studio, in which he is always eloquent and well-groomed. In “Superman Returns,” he is often seen with a hair band on his head and following the twins around trying to clean up their mess. Lee Hwi Jae as an amateur superman gave a completely different outlook on the entertainer – who was often seen as a “playboy” – to many viewers.

Moreover, many have been saddened by the news that Lee Hwi Jae’s eyes are in extremely bad condition; it was revealed through the show that Lee Hwi Jae has cataracts in both eyes. The entertainer stated that he may have even have to take a break from his career if his left eye becomes worse. He himself having inherited his eyes from his father, he was extremely pained by the idea that his twins may struggle with the same condition in the future.

Lee Hwi Jae revealed sides of his life that cannot be seen without tears. Watching and experiencing the good and bad times with him, viewers have been touched by his sincerity. If there had been any prejudices against the entertainer in the past, many now know that he is a responsible father who often cries at the thought of his family.
