Rumors circulated that his father and older sister were studious, and his cousins were law school graduates and doctors. However, his father lost his job during the IMF, worsening his family situation. He admitted to experiencing the severity of poverty during high school.

He even recalled a memory of not being able to eat hamburgers with friends after school because he didn’t have the money.

His family’s financial situation continued even while he entered the military. He also remembered the pain and sadness his parents had to endure during that time and confessed that he felt helpless.
