Hi everyone. 2020 was a very painful year.
I have some news to inform you. My wife and I decided to divorce.
I’m currently in America, and Michael lives in Korea with his mom. I can’t see Michael right now, but I’ll go there whenever I want to, and I will try to help him become the father he needs.
I don’t know what will happen in the future, but I pray that Michael and his mother will be happy.
Thank you for your support. We are sorry to end this way.
