Set to air on Channel A at 8:10 PM on May 30th, “Dr. Oh’s Golden Clinic” will feature Goo Hye Sun. She’s known for her diverse talents in singing, writing, directing, and more.

After her 2020 divorce, Goo Hye Sun made headlines for her impressive academic achievements, graduating top of her class after focusing on her studies.

Goo Hye Sun opens up about her difficulty accepting the separation from her pets, especially her dog Potato, who felt like family.

Dr. Oh Eun Young explains that losing a pet can lead to ‘pet loss syndrome’, where the emotions can be similar to losing a family member.

Goo Hye Sun talks about parting ways with six dogs over four years and how her academic goals kept her from fully grieving. Dr. Oh Eun Young discusses the stages of grief known as the ‘DABDA reaction’, noting that Goo Hye Sun hasn’t fully reached acceptance yet.

Many people struggle to accept the loss of a pet and often feel regret afterward. Dr. Oh Eun Young shares her own experience of losing her pet Pobi after 20 years together. She tears up, saying, “I loved Pobi too much.” Goo Hye Sun empathizes, expressing regret for not giving enough love to her pets.

Despite two years passing, Goo Hye Sun still finds it hard to accept the separation, causing concern. She admits to avoiding talking about her pet to avoid sadness overwhelming her. Dr. Oh Eun Young advises her to share her feelings with others as a way to overcome sadness.

Goo Hye Sun opens up about her struggle with human relationships, admitting she doesn’t have many friends to lean on.

She prefers one-on-one relationships and tends to keep her sadness to herself. Dr. Oh Eun Young sees a connection between Goo Hye Sun‘s difficulty in parting with her pet and her approach to human relationships.
