Park Joong Hoon Candidly Opens Up About Seeking Professional Help For Alcohol Dependence
Actor Park Joong Hoon opened up about his journey to abstain from alcohol.
On February 11, the actor took to his personal Instagram to write about the process. He stated, “I thought long and hard about whether I should share something like this here. However, I am finding it hard to do this on my own, so I want to talk about it here and have reached out for professional help to not drink any alcohol this year.”
He went on to explain, “I’ve actually already started the process. My dependence on wine is too high. It’s not only affecting my health, but it is making me a very lazy person.” Park Joong Hoon ended on a lighter note as he joked, “Happy New Year, and to my loving drinking buddies! Please understand my decision. I’ll still join you for dinners. This is how I will live, even just for this year!”

이런 것까지 여기에 알려야 하나 제법 고민도 좀 했습니다만 이젠 제 의지만으론 버거워서 밝히고 전문가의 도움을 받으며 올해만 술을 안 마시기로 했습니다. 사실 이미 그러고 있습니다. 와인의존도가 너무 심해서요. 건강도 건강이고 자꾸 게을러져서시리ㅜ 새해 모두 건강하시고 사랑하는 술친구들! 이해 부탁요^^ 저녁자리는 함께 해요. 올해만이라도 그러고 살게요!!! I already stopped drinking alcohol and I'll do it at least until the end of this year. For the health and also to concentrate my work. It doesn't seem to be easy but… ???
