Comedian Lee Soo-geun has given up his role on the second season of KBS2’s “Invincible Youth” in order to take care of his wife, who is recovering from a severe case of toxemia.
The host of the show recorded his final shoot yesterday, but said that he would continue appearing on “One Night, Two Days”.
“I want to become a better husband by being there for my wife, who is unwell”, Lee said. “Also, I thought I’d like to devote myself wholly to filming ‘One Night, Two Days’.?”
Lee’s wife, Park Ji-yeon, recently uploaded a picture of her family on her Web site where she could be seen wearing a face mask.
Last year on an episode of “Lee Mi-sook‘s Bad Scene”, Lee Soo-geun shed tears while talking about his wife. Her health deteriorated after she gave birth to the couple’s second child. Park received a kidney transplant but suffered from side effects of the procedure.
