“The Return of Superman”: Choi Min-wan and Yulhee navigates life after their heartfelt life together

“The Return of Superman”: Choi Min-wan and Yulhee navigates life after divorce

Recently divorced singer Choi Min-hwan and Yulhee were captured together in a parenting variety show. It was an unusual sight, but one that is possible in the context of a parenting program.

FT Island‘s Choi Min-hwan has been appearing on KBS 2TV’s “The Return of Superman” as part of a new Superman family since the 7th. He had previously announced his divorce from Yulhee in December last year and revealed that he is raising their first son Jae-yul and twin daughters A-rin and A-yoon on his own through ‘The Return of Superman’.

Choi Min-hwan and Yulhee divorced less than six months ago, and the current status of Choi Min-hwan, who is raising three children alone, being broadcast on ‘The Return of Superman’, has garnered significant attention. The daily life of Choi Min-hwan’s family, which has been revealed over two weeks until the 14th, has been continuously in the spotlight.

In particular, the scenes of their eldest son Jae-yul missing his mom Yulhee from the first episode deeply touched many viewers. Following the scenes of him shedding tears alone, missing his mom, there were subsequent scenes of him having a video call with his mom and whispering to her. Yulhee also appeared on the broadcast through a video call with Jae-yul, and thus Choi Min-hwan and Yulhee appeared together on the same show.

In the current era where divorce is no longer a stigma, the struggle of Choi Min-hwan and Yulhee in their respective roles has left a strong impression on the public. Yulhee, who was criticized for not raising the children, is also seen making efforts to fulfill her role as a mom within the given circumstances, which has somewhat softened the criticism. In particular, Choi Min-hwan’s appearance as a single father raising three children has led to a clear rise in his image.

In reality, many viewers expressed their support with comments such as “Cheering for Choi Min-hwan’s family”, “I felt so sad when Jae-yul cried”, “I hope Yulhee can meet the kids more often”, “The children are so innocent and lovely”, “Choi Min-hwan is doing a great job raising the kids”, and more.

However, the effects are not entirely positive. There continues to be opposition regarding whether it is appropriate for the children, who are going through a difficult time like adults amidst recent divorce, to be fully exposed on the broadcast. While the family entertainment show showed viewers a warm and harmonious image, there is also a fair amount of resentment towards Choi Min-hwan and Yulhee trying to transform their image through a parenting show after their divorce.

Choi Min-hwan must accept both support and criticism as he made the decision to appear amidst considerable deliberation. The effects of appearing on a family-oriented entertainment program are certain. With just two appearances on ‘The Return of Superman’, the Choi Min-hwan family received greater attention and sympathy than usual. Having tasted the double-edged sword once through a family entertainment show, careful steps are expected in the future.
