Byul Brings HaHa To Tears With Her Story About Their Son Dream
Byul said, “I’m a little embarrassed coming on the show with HaHa. Usually singers appear on the show whey they’ve released an album. I was just taking care of my kids. But people from my agency are appearing together, so I thought I might be of help.”
Haha talked about Byul having to take a break from her career to raise their children. He said, “Byul is the mother of our children, but when she’s on stage, she’s really cool. [At home,] she would put the kids to bed and then put in her earbuds to listen to music that she likes and [try to also work], but that was hard for her, because the next day it’s right back to reality. Seeing her go through that, I told her to pick one [so she could be a little less stressed]: taking care of the kids, or work.”
Byul, who teared up a little as HaHa was talking, added, “When we knew that our second was going to be a boy, we said we would try for a third, because HaHa wanted a daughter. But HaHa saw how hard it was for me and was the first to say that we should stop, and that I should go back to making the music that I love.”
Byul then revealed how they started dating. She said, “Suddenly one day, I got this long text from HaHa asking me to date him. I didn’t even have his phone number at the time. Eight months later, we got married. At the time, I thought, ‘How did I marry someone with just those feelings?’ Our honeymoon stage wasn’t as passionate as other couples.”
Talking about their son Dream, Byul told a story that even HaHa didn’t know. She said, “Dream is six, and he knows now that his dad’s a singer who appears on TV, and he likes listening to HaHa’s music. HaHa has a song called ‘Yes, I Can’t Sing,’ where he talks being determined to sing even though people tell him not to. Dream understood the lyrics in the song and asked me, “Mom, why do people tell Dad not to sing?’ He started shaking and crying huge tears, and said, ‘But my dad’s a good singer.’”
She added, “When I take him out for a walk around the neighborhood, people will tell him that his mom’s a good singer, but Dream will say, ‘No, my dad’s better at singing.’” So surprised at the story, HaHa started crying, which then made Byul start crying, too. HaHa, overcome with emotion, asked for a brief break and stepped off camera.
When he came back, he explained, “The other day, Byul and I actually cried together. I felt bad about how I had treated my mother, and Byul comforted me. Today, hearing this story [about Dream], I wondered if I was deserving of all this love from my son. I’m so thankful he loves me so much.”
