Kim Yo Han Describes Life As A Taekwondo Athlete + Having His Father As His Coach
On the latest episode of MBN’s “Naturally,” Kim Yo Han reminisced about his years as a taekwondo athlete.
The idol continued to experience life in the countryside on the April 4 broadcast of the reality show, where he bonded with the cast members over food.
While sharing a meal with the cast, Kim Yo Han talked about what it was like to have his father as a taekwondo coach. Likening himself to the Korean literary figure Hong Gil Dong, who had a complicated relationship with his father, he said, “I called him ‘Dad’ at home, but I couldn’t when we were outside. It was more comfortable for me to call him ‘coach’ at school. I even sometimes called him ‘coach’ at home.”
When Kim Jong Min asked, “Do you think you would’ve won a gold medal if you continued taekwondo?” Kim Yo Han replied, “I was quite good at it. I won first place at two youth national competitions.”
