FT Island’s Minhwan and Yulhee Reveal Life and Struggles as Young Parents



On December 5 broadcast of KBS “Mr. House Husband,” FT Island’s Choi Minhwan and former Laboum member Yulhee talked about their lives and struggles as young parents.

Ever before their marriage, Minhwan and Yulhee have been receiving a constant attention from the public. They first became the talk of the town when Yulhee mistakenly uploaded pictures of them together on a public SNS account in September, 2016.

Following the revelation of their relationship, Yulhee announced her departure LABOUM and two months later, Minhwan announced their marriage. The couple further surprised the public for announcing Yulhee’s pregnancy in May before having their official wedding in October 19, 2017.

During the latest episode of “Mr. House Husband,” the couple revealed their lives as young parents and the struggles they went through to be where they are right now.

Minhwan said, “when the news was revealed to the public, I worried that I or our baby might have interfered with the future of Yulhee. The things she should be experiencing at her age helps her to grow as a person, but I felt sorry that I may have prevented her from doing so.”

Yulhee commented, “I worried that my image to the public was ruined forever because I had to announce our relationship, pregnancy, and marriage at the same time.”

However, the life they showed during the episode made all the worries go away. When Yulhee confessed that she misses working, Minhwan even showed support for her getting back out there. The husband said, “I’m fully aware that at your age, you still want to hang out with your friends. If you want to work, then I’m ready to support you.”

Watching him change the baby's clothes gave me such second hand embarrassment lol. Minhwan and Yulhee obsessing over the new toy more than Jaeyul is relatable.


Obviously being new parents is tough so I hope people aren't too harsh on them just yet. Fumbling aside, they make a cute family.

They are really young, and parenting is hard. I hope that they learn from the struggles! I also really like how Minhwan acknowledged the disparity between the effects on Yulhee's career vs. his. It seems like he really does support her, which should be the norm.

I mean she's really young. I'm late to this party but I assume the age gap was questioned at some point...
sra_interesante 7th-Dec-2018 03:54 pm (UTC)
age gap? he's 3-4 years oldert than her lmao everybody know ftisland members look aged (and wasted)

actually at some point everybody questioned this relationship when she posted "by accident" pics of him in her social media ...
people compared her with iu infamous "visiting the sick" scandal lmao

I don't think it was as much the age gap in their relationship as the fact that he got her pregnant when she was only 19 years old and he was old enough to know about bc (in k-ent, do they ever though).
sra_interesante 8th-Dec-2018 10:51 pm (UTC)
exactly.... that's why this controversy was compared to "visiting the sick" scandal because back in the day IU was barely legal (she was only 18 and a few months) while eunhyuk was 25 ...

now you mention this i do remember non-fans judging eunhyuk justl ike you do now
they were very sure "eunhyuk stole korea's little sister virginity" or something like that 🤷

I was one of the members being pretty pissed about this when it first happened and while I still think men aren't shit and putting your partner at risk by not using bc is a really serious issue it's good that he's addressing these things now and admitting to his responsibility in Yulhee missing out on experiences and a part of life he got to have for himself but she never will. Even if they are happy with their marriage and baby I can't imagine not resenting your partner sometimes in a situation like this because some things you can never get back, and I'm glad that he acknowledges this. Even in a "normal" pregnancy it seems men don't realise how much the mother of their child is expected to give up.

And no I'm not saying it's only on one person to have safe sex but well this is the world we live in.

Maybe I read wrong, but he talked about how hard must be for her, but at same time is always out of korea working. Has to serve the army yet but wants a second child already... so he needs to mature more
