Dahil sa matagal nang isyu sa pamilya ng South Korean actor na si Shin Dong Wook, mukhang hindi naging maganda ang pagpasok sa kanya ng 2019. Nasasangkot sa isang scandal si Dong Wook dahil sa sarili niyang lolo.
Pero ang mismong lolo ni Dong Wook ang nagpa-interview sa TV Chosun na diumano’y niloko siya ng sariling apo. Pinararatangan ito ng “filial fraud” at paaabutin niya ito sa ligal.
Ayon sa actor na may bagong drama sa tvN, ang “Touch Your Heart,” “First, I would like to apologize for worrying the public and those who cheered me on in their hearts with an unfortunate incident at the beginning of the year.
“To explain this incident, I have to go back to 2011. My grandfather had sued my granduncle, so no one in my family was seeing him. Back then, as soon as I was discharged from the military due to complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), I briefly went to Gyeonggi province, where my grandfather lives, to greet him. His house, which is nearly 1,000 pyong (approximately 35,000 square feet) was almost in ruins, and my grandfather was in such low spirits that I felt bad. When I said we should live together, he said he would like that. We lived together a while. He was kind to me, and as his grandson I would take him to the hospital and help him with other errands.”
Siya rin daw ang gumawa ng paraan para magkaayos ang ama niya at lolo niya. Pero at the end, pinaalis daw siya sa bahay ng lolo niya. Pero nagkita raw silang muli habang ginagawa niya ang drama na “Live” noong 2017 at hindi raw niya ito matiis nang makita ang situwasyon nito.
Sabi pa rin niya, “My grandfather held my hand and said, ‘I don’t have many days left to live. Since you’re the eldest grandson, you have to perform the family’s ancestral rites.’ My grandfather wasn’t seeing anyone in our family, so there was no one to perform the ancestral rites. Even if I disliked him, when I heard words like family, it made me emotional.
“Afterwards, I sought him out again, and he told me to do the ancestral rites and to take the 15,000 pyong (approximately 53,000 square feet) of land in Daejeon. He said that it was the inheritance for the person who would perform the ancestral rites and continued to offer it to me, while I continued to refuse. I refused it 10 times, and he pleaded with me while crying. As his grandson I could not ignore him. I had no choice but to receive it, and he said if he died he would have no regrets. He must have been in a good mood that day, as he also enjoyed a drink.”
Kinuwento rin niya na nang ginagawa niya ang “Live,” pagkatapos ng filming ay pumupunta siya sa bahay ng lolo nang 5 a.m. para tulungan ito sa mga gawain. Ito rin daw ‘yung panahon na ibinigay sa kanya ng lolo niya ang lupa sa Daejeon at ang bahay sa Yeoju.im the land in Daejeon and the house he was living in in Yeoju.
Lahad pa rin niya, “As drama filming got extended, I was only able to call him and couldn’t go to him for about 10 days. He then called me and said, ‘You’re a fraud. I never gave you the land. I haven’t even given you a penny. I’m going to bury you so you can’t be a celebrity anymore.’ I was so confused. I was only unable to go to him for 10 days. But within that span of time, he claimed that I wasn’t being a good grandson.”
“I told him that I couldn’t go because I was busy, but he said that I had cut off contact. I still don’t know what the issue is right now; it’s something that I can’t understand. That day, my grandfather went to a law firm and asked for a restraining order. He called it cutting off contact. I still don’t understand it now, to be honest.”
Sinubukan daw niyang ibalik na lang sa lolo niya ang mga ipinamamana sa kanya, pero pinagbabantaan naman daw siya nito.
Ayon kay Dong Wook, “I’m thinking of returning the land in Daejeon as well as the house in Yeoju to my grandfather. I had that thought since the beginning, but every time I tried to return the land, he would get angry and say, ‘I don’t need things like that. I can sue,’ or ‘I just need to kill you. You need to go to jail.’ Even if I did return it, I don’t know if he’ll act like before, or what he’ll do.”
Wish naman ng mga netizen na magpakatatag lang daw sana ang actor sa hinaharap na isyu, lalo pa nga’t kapamilya niya ang sangkot.
