While making a raw octopus dish, Sakura had a question for Hong Seok Cheon, who was famous for owning multiple restaurants in Itaewon, Seoul.

Why did you want to open a restaurant?

Hong Seok Cheon replied that he did it to make a living and shared his story from when he came out as gay. Asking when Sakura was born, he shared that he came out when she was two years old—in 2000.

I came out when you were two years old. I told everyone about my identity. So there was a time where I couldn’t come out on media for about three years…

— Hong Seok Cheon

As soon as he said this, Sakura had question marks all over her as she was confused why his career had to come to pause.

Hong Seok Cheon continued to express how much people didn’t want him to come out on media.

They didn’t let me. People said, ‘Don’t come out!’ We don’t want to see you!

— Hong Seok Cheon

Sakura continued to have a look of utter confusion on her face, not understanding why anyone would do that to someone for their sexual orientation. She continued to make questioning noises, “Huh?” as he spoke.

Hong Seok Cheon said he needed to make money during this time of “rest,” which led him to open restaurants.

This isn’t the first time Sakura has supported Hong Seok Cheon and his sexual identity. In a previous episode, he claimed that his parents wanted him to study hard and be successful, but he just “became a gay,” to which Sakura responded that he was a “successful gay.”
