Yano Shiho Explains Why Her Family Has Moved To Hawaii
Yano Shiho, Choo Sung Hoon, and Choo Sarang have moved to Hawaii!
In a recent interview with the magazine Elle, model Yano Shiho shared that she moved from Japan to Hawaii this spring. The reasons she listed for the move were “My daughter’s education, family time together, and to challenge myself.”
Yano Shiho has since posted on Instagram with a photo from Hawaii to say, “Thank you for sending so many messages of congratulations.” She added, “It’s surprising when I look at my age of 42 years as a number, but I’m enjoying my current age, which feels different than my 20s and 30s. This is a new start here.” She said she wants to keep everyone updated through different methods about their life overseas, caring for Choo Sarang, and both her family and work.
Yano Shiho’s husband Choo Sung Hoon and their daughter Choo Sarang appeared as one of the first families on “The Return of Superman,” and Yano Shiho also often appeared on the show. The family received much love from viewers and become household names in Korea, going on to film a reality show titled “Choovely’s Outing” in Mongolia last year.
Some Japanese media outlets linked the family’s move to a negative reaction by some viewers in Japan to a TV appearance in which Yano Shiho was shown not disciplining Choo Sarang when she was touching another person’s phone on a train. Yano Shiho stated in an interview with a Japanese magazine in February that she thought her parenting style had been wrong.
About 16 percent of Hawaii’s population is of Japanese descent, and it’s reported that there are many Japanese celebrities who have made the move to Hawaii to raise their children.
