Dongho’s Father Gives Interview Regarding His Son’s Divorce
After reports of former U-KISS member Dongho filing for a divorce, his father has talked more in detail about the matter.
On September 20, Dongho’s father Shin Sung Chul, who previously established Photo Music and Music Life magazine, stated through an interview, “All of the procedures for the divorce have already been completed. It hasn’t been long [since].”
His father continued, “It became like this due to differences in personality and because they’re not a good match together. I don’t like it, but what can I do… It’s unfortunate, but later in life, I think there will be good opportunities (reconciling, etc).”
In regards to Dongho’s son, his father stated, “Because they have a child, they didn’t split on bad terms. A while ago, they even brought their son along because we wanted to see him. When it comes to rearing children, a parent must take full responsibility. Because we thought it would be better if the mother took care of the child, we decided on that.”
After jumping back and forth between Korea and Japan following his marriage, Dongho is currently staying in Japan. He is juggling both his DJ career and other business ventures. In response to the possibility of his son’s return to the entertainment industry, he stated, “He doesn’t have any plans [of doing so], as far as I’m aware. He wants to live freely while working as a DJ.”
Dongho also gave an official statement and explained the situation through a Facebook post.
He debuted in 2008 with U-KISS and tried his hand at appearing in variety shows, acting in movies, and other activities. After leaving the group in 2013, he later made his DJ debut as DJ Rushin Justin.
