Song Jae Rim Was Poor Growing up, Dream Was to Be a Salaryman
Actor Song Jae Rim revealed that he was poor growing up, so his dream was to be a salaryman who receives a steady income. He said that this was also one of the reasons why he started working early in his life.
In the December 6 broadcast of MBC’s “Human Documentary,” Song Jae Rim revealed his daily lifestyle. After finding a certain traditional market in Sillim, Song Jae Rim said, “I was always poor growing up. We were so poor that the IMF crisis [the Asian financial crisis of 1997-98] didn’t affect us. There was no such thing as voluntary retirement.”
Song Jae Rim revealed that he has been living on his own since he was 20 years old. He said that because of his limited budget, he developed a habit of keeping track of his expenditures and shared with viewers the ledgers he has compiled over the years.
