Actor Jang Hyuk opened up about his deep respect for his father, “I look up to my dad”

Actor Jang Hyuk opened up about his deep respect for his father, who had a job in the Middle East, including Iraq, back in the 1980s.

On May 19th, Jang Hyuk graced TV Chosun‘s ‘Heo Young Man’s Food Travel‘ as a guest. Together, they embarked on a culinary adventure to Ganghwa Island.

As a dad who’s been living the ‘migratory bird’ life for two years now, Jang Hyuk has sent his two sons, one daughter, and wife overseas for their studies.

During the show, Jang Hyuk took a trip down memory lane, sharing, “When I was a kid, my dad also spent a lot of time working abroad. He was part of the construction boom in Saudi Arabia and Iraq during the 1980s.”

He added, “As a kid, the airport was like a treasure trove for me. My dad would bring home the coolest robot toys, thermal lunch boxes, gaming consoles, button pencil cases, and more.”

Jang Hyuk also admitted, “I look up to my dad. Becoming a father myself, I started to see my parents in a new light. I often find myself wondering, ‘What was I like back then?’ It’s led to more heart-to-heart talks with my parents.”
