Sandeul and Baro share their emotional stories on Strong Heart



Sandeul bursts into tears on ‘Strong Heart’ thinking about his grandfather


B1A4‘s Sandeul burst into tears on the January 15th installment of ‘Strong Heart‘.

On the show, Kim Jung Hwa talked about her mother who passed away due to cancer. While listening to her story, Sandeul had shed tears, and the MCs asked what was wrong. Sandeul had to take a moment to compose himself, and he had a hard time confessing, “My maternal grandfather has cancer, but he can’t even get surgery“, revealing that the cancer was untreatable.

He continued, “But my grandfather doesn’t even know he has cancer. He can’t get surgery, and he’s such a cheery person that we thought it was best not to tell him, so we haven’t. Everyone in our family pretends they don’t know anything.

Even after he was done, he couldn’t stop crying. MC Shin Dong Yup tried to make him feel better by joking about their upcoming topic, but in the end he couldn’t stop crying and actor Park Shin Yangsuggested they take a break from filming before they continue.






Baro shares emotional story of his younger sister on ‘Strong Heart’


B1A4‘s Baro shared an emotional story of his younger sister.

On the January 15th episode of ‘Strong Heart‘, Baro revealed, “I have a little sister who is 4 years younger than me. She turns 18 this year. This happened when I was in middle school and she was in elementary school. There was a time when my father’s business didn’t work out, so our family was going through a difficult time.

He continued, “One day as my parents fought, I heard that men would come in and start labeling our possessions so they could take it to repay our debts.” He confessed that there was time when his parents were out working, men started to come in their home and his sister started to cry because she was so shocked, but that he couldn’t do anything because he was just as shocked.

He confessed, “I should have gone out to comfort my sister, but I was scared too. After they were done, my sister was still crying, but if I went out (of my room) right away, I thought she’d realize I was actually not asleep, so I just kept pretending to be asleep. I cried under my blanket and thought to myself that I would help rebuild our family. My sister gives me strength now“.

He also revealed that his sister hadn’t told anyone in her school that her brother was a member in B1A4. When he asked her why, she had replied, “If I do something wrong, you’ll get hurt because of it“, touching the hearts of everyone in the studio.

This! I understand their hearts are in the right place, but it seems unintentionally cruel.

About Sandeul, I don't think anyone should pass judgment until you're in that situation. Unless you've experienced what he and his family are going through, you don't have a right to say anything about what they as a family decided to do.
markthatcoin 17th-Jan-2013 02:38 am (UTC)
i agree, there could certainly be extenuating circumstances they are (rightfully) keeping private
falling_empress 17th-Jan-2013 03:07 am (UTC)
Uh my mom has non-hodgkins lymphoma. Is that close enough or much closer?

maybe his grandfather doesn't watch tv? :/ that seems to be the most plausible thing.

mte... really inappropriate story to exploit for some camera time

he couldn't exactly help it. another guest was talking about how their mother died of cancer. then he broke down crying in the middle of her talking and people wondered what was wrong. he was asked about it and with sandeul being such an honest person i don't seem him lying about it. plus obviously he was upset and troubled about it. they even stopped filming for awhile so he could calm down

before everyone starts leaving hate towards him, it's actually VERY common in korea/japan for the patient to be the last to know about their cancer diagnosis. their medical laws are very different.
iftheshoefits88 17th-Jan-2013 04:07 am (UTC)
really? thats pretty crazy. i wonder why they would do that? you would think they would want to give them time to prepare themselves and their loved ones, unless everyone else deals with the business so the sick person doesnt have to worry about it.

People should understand that it's sometimes better to not tell a person they are dying. Sometimes the news of their condition can make them worse and cause them to die earlier than expected. People always think it's better to tell a person they are dying but they don't seem to take into consideration how that news affects that person psychologically and physically. In some cases, that news not only makes them give up on enjoying the last few moments here but it physically can tear these people down.

I've personally seen how that news can break a person down and they end using their time left worrying about the end and what will happen to everyone after they're gone. That worry is something that shouldn't have to plague them in the last few moments here. They should live their days happy and fulfilled not focusing on he negative stuff. I say let the worry and those burdens be on those who will carry on. They can carry those responsibilities and eventually they will heal.

So those of you who are saying it's mean of them not to tell him need to really take the time to understand their situation before passing judgement.

Flawless comment.

i don't think we have the right to judge what Sandeul and his family decided

my family never told my grandma she had pancreatic cancer. she knew she had some kind of disease, for sure (impossible not to considering the effects on her body and surgery), but we never directly told her she had cancer. we dealt with everything for her and it didn't help that there were family issues going on that we had to keep from her. we just wanted to allow her to rest as much as possible and enjoy whatever time she had. toward the end there was so much pain medication in her body she was hallucinating.

I think that we don't have the right to question sandeul's family's decision .. they're the ones that knows more about the grandpa not us!
also every sick person knows somehow that his time is near ;____; it's in the human nature!

trolls here need to find something else,go to other topics,and don't be douches here.

Poor Sandeul. ㅜㅜ He's a person who lives without filters...he cries and laughs more openly than I've seen hardly any other idols do. Such an honest straightforward person couldn't stop himself from crying, and when they ask him what's wrong he feels the need to respond...

He had to feel bad and embarrassed for interrupting filming too, even though it couldn't be helped. Strong Heart is kind of above bilasa's paygrade famewise, the two of them were sitting much more stiffly and uncomfortably than they do somewhere they feel comfortable (like Immortal Song 2)

That's probably why Baro felt the need to tell a potentially uncomfortable story like that too, gotta tell something interesting.

idk u guise I just have a lot of feelings. ㅠㅠ

poor sanduel...

tbh I've always side-eyed the whole concept of Strong Heart....some of the stories are way too personal. What kind of world are we where people's lowest moments are considered variety show entertainment?

Ugh this upsets me. Informed consent is a good thing, jesus.

If there is nothing anyone can do about it what good is going to come of telling an old happy person that they are about to die soon. As someone over 70+ years he's probably already wrapped his head around the fact that he's going to die. Until he gets sick and/or cannot function anymore I see no point in telling him anything. If there was some kind of surgery or a choice about chemo or something I would be against just making a choice on his behalf but if there is literally nothing to do but wait and die, just let him be happy for as long as he can and explain things when necessary.
