Jo Yoon Hee Talks About Her Daughter, How Fostering Animals Gave Her Confidence, And More
Asked about why she takes care of abandoned pets or disabled pets, she replied, “If I were to be honest, I’m someone who has low self-confidence. I often think to myself, ‘Why isn’t there anything special that I’m good at?’ There are so many things that I want to do, but when my skills fall short, I get depressed. But when I provide foster care for abandoned animals, they became happier and undergo positive changes and find new families. Or I adopt them and take care of them for the rest of their lives, and I find this really rewarding. I think that this work helped me to love myself a little more.”
About her daughter, Ro Ah, she said, “In the past, I used to think that when the time came for me to get married, when the time came for me to have kids, I would not want to have children and instead just take care of dogs for the rest of my life. Later, I did have a child because I wanted to. I think my daughter, no matter what career she pursues, will be someone who helps animals. I am looking forward to the things we can do together to help animals as she gets older.”
Jo Yoon Hee showed the other cast members a photo of her 37-month-old daughter and Tiffany exclaimed, “She’s so pretty! She looks just like you.” Jo Yoon Hee said proudly, “She’s tall and has a small face. Other moms have told me how pretty she is. She likes dinosaurs and cars. I’ve lived most of my life as a timid and introverted person, so I had hopes that my daughter would be the type who leads. But she really is like that. She has a tomboyish personality.”
