About their pay.

My sons, Seo Eon and Seo Joon recognize that they were recently on the show. I’m worried that they’ll ask me, ‘Dad, where’s my payment for being on the show?’

When Park Myung Soo asked where their payment is, Lee Hwi Jae agreed to reveal something that The Return of Superman never has.

That it’s never coming.

They don’t pay the children for being on their show.

But he added that that doesn’t mean they get paid nothing for good because he made separate accounts for them once advertisements came in.

But when they filmed advertisements after that, I made bank accounts for them.

The new gained particular attention due to a controversy involving Sam Hammington‘s sons, William and Bentley when they were led to believe they would meet BTS.

The show airs every week on Sundays.
