On the November 23rd episode of JTBC‘s new show Salon de Raison, M.I.B‘s Kangnam confessed that he had been bullied during his childhood since he is bi-ethnic.
On the show, Kangnam said, “I was extremely bullied during my childhood in Japan. Because I was relatively small and was half-Korean, I was beaten up. Kindergarteners don’t know what is bad, so they pulled my hair as well.”
Comedian Jo Sae Ho also shared his experiences with bullying, saying, “I lived in Japan during my childhood as well. When I moved from school in Japan to Korea, I was bullied in Korea as well for having lived in Japan. I was still immature then, so I often told my mother that I didn’t want to go to school.”
Comedian Jang Dong Min commented, “The problem is that those not participating in the bullying also get bullied as well.”
Check out the heartfelt stories from Kangnam, Jo Sae Ho, Hong Jin Ho, and Jin Joong Kwon in this episode.
