Actor Kim Dong-hee talked about growing up with a single mother.
On June 17 episode of tvN's television show 'You Quiz on the Block', Kim Dong-hee made a guest appearance.
During the talk, Kim Dong-hee was asked what his family's response was to his successful career as an actor.
Kim Dong-hee answered, "They are really happy about it. My mother is happier than anybody else. She gives me useful acting advice as well."
Then, he went silent for a couple of seconds and said, "Can I talk about my mother for a bit? This is something that I've actually wanted to mention somewhere at one point."
Kim Dong-hee said, "My life has never been easy; it has always been full of struggles. My mother raised me all by herself. She went through a lot."
The actor continued, "She is really young; she was born in 1975. I feel like she gave up on all her youth for me, and it hurts me to think that. She may think like she didn't give me enough of things while I was growing up, but I don't want her to think that way."
He added, "I want to give her youth back. I'm going to pay for her trips from now on, and eventually buy her a car and new home."
Following his debut with a web-drama 'A-TEEN' in 2018, Kim Dong-hee soon rose to fame with the success of the drama.
After 'A-TEEN', Kim Dong-hee starred in popular dramas 'Sky Castle' (2018), the second season of 'A-TEEN' (2019), 'Itaewon Class' (2020) and 'Extracurricular' (2020).
