Choo Sung Hoon Shares Update On His Daughter Choo Sarang, Talks About His Family Life, And More

On the November 14 episode of SBS’s “My Little Old Boy,” Choo Sung Hoon appeared as a guest.

Choo Sung Hoon is an MMA fighter and judo athlete who rose to fame through his appearance on the KBS show “The Return of Superman” with his daughter, Choo Sarang. He shared that Sarang was now 11 years old in Korean age and jokingly complained, “When people see me, they usually ask after Sarang first.”

Seo Jang Hoon asked him if his daughter knew that he was a globally ranked mixed martial artist, and he said, “She doesn’t know the details, but she knows that I’m a fighter. I told her recently that I had a match set up. But when I saw her face, it wasn’t a happy expression. She told me she doesn’t like seeing her dad getting hit. She doesn’t want to go into the competitive world.”

Shin Dong Yup asked how he would react if Sarang said she wanted to be a mixed martial artist too. He replied with a sigh, “If she really wanted to do it, then I’d have no choice but to help her.”

Although of Korean descent, Choo Sung Hoon’s family has lived in Japan for generations and holds Japanese nationality. He currently lives in Hawaii with his wife and daughter. At a Korean awards show, he accidentally said in his speech, “I think of this award as something I am receiving on my own” instead of “I think of this award as something I am not receiving on my own.” Seo Jang Hoon and Shin Dong Yup brought up the moment on the show and Choo Sung Hoon joked, “But it was an award that I received on my own.”

Choo Sung Hoon is married to Japanese top model Yano Shiho. He said, “Sometimes when I see her in a magazine, although there’s some slight touch-ups, I realize again that she’s very beautiful. But when we’re at home, she nags me a lot. For example, I’m an athlete. In order to maintain my body, I have to sleep well. If I don’t have exercise in the morning, I sleep in. But she wakes me up every day at 6 or 7 a.m.”

He continued, “If I tell her that I’m tired and I want to sleep, she opens up the curtains and tells me to wake up early and get more sunlight. This happens every day. I know that we have to get the kid up and feed her breakfast but I also wish she’d understand my point of view sometimes.”

He added, “Once, she saw the actor Jung Woo Sung and wouldn’t stop talking about him while we were eating. I could understand her saying how handsome she was a few times, but it got to be a bit much.”
