Mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Song Ga Yeon shared a touching story about her personal life on the latest episode of SBS’ “Roommate.”
On the August 24 episode of the show, Lee Dong Wook, Jo Se Ho, and Song Ga Yeon traveled to the sportswoman’s hometown located on Jeju Island.
While hiking up the famous Halla Mountain, the fighter opened up about memories of her late father, saying, “I started thinking about many old memories [during this trip]. My father was a warm person and only cared for his daughter.”
“When I was in sixth grade of elementary school, we had difficulties at home, and while I knew that my father loved me, something felt different. He changed after that,” she revealed, and continued, “But I could not help him. I had no strength.”
“Before passing away, my father asked me the previous week, ‘Wanna go to Halla Mountain?’ He seemed to think about things alone and feel lonely. Seems like he wanted to be with his daughter, but he passed away soon after,” she explained.
“I learnt from my father that you should never give up. He gave up so easily, and I realized that I do not want to live like that,” Son Ga Yeon concluded, revealing her impressively mature and strong nature.
