Recently, one past episode of SBS' television show 'Healing Camp' caught the attention of many.
In this episode that was aired in 2013, Lee Jung Jae made a guest appearance and talked about his tough childhood days.
He continued, "When I used to go to my friends' birthday parties, I would feel embarrassed because I couldn't buy anything as a gift for them. I felt so ashamed."
He went on, "I wore really old socks all the time as well, and some of them had holes in them. So, I used to roll up the part that had holes as much as I could so that I could hide them from my friends."
The actor added that he also used to get beat up by his teachers in middle and high school for not paying tuition fees, which he did not understand why he had to get beaten up for that.
Lee Jung Jae stated, "When I was in elementary school, I started dreaming of becoming of a cab driver. At that time, I saw cab drivers working every day, and making money, consistently. I thought that was what we needed."
He resumed, "I thought it was a job that will allow me to continuously work as well as provide me enough income for me and my family. I still don't dream big; I only have small dreams."
