While 'Actor 10 Million' Jang Gwang confessed that he had been having emotional troubles with his son for a long time, MC Jeon Hyun-moo reacted with concern, saying, "This is the biggest challenge of any family that has appeared on the show so far."

In TV CHOSUN's 'Dad and Me', which will be broadcast on the 10th, actor Jang Gwang, a voice actor of 46 years and a 'luxury scene stealer' of 13 years, will appear as the new 'representative dad'.

Jang Gwang is also the head of a famous 'celebrity family', including his wife Jeon Seong-ae, who is an actress, his daughter Mi-ja, a comedian, and his son Jang Young, who is pursuing the path of an actor like his parents. Jang Gwang said of his daughter, “She is an indispensable person,” and that she is “an indispensable best friend” to the point where they tell each other everything. On the other hand, he confesses about his son, "I'm not very close with him. He doesn't have very good feelings toward me," raising questions about the feelings that have built up between father and son over a long period of time.

Jang Gwang's son, Jang Young, has been working as an actor for 12 years, working in theater and broadcasting. However, Jang Gwang expressed his disapproval about his son's long life in obscurity, saying, "My son is a new actor. He has not yet been highlighted." Jang Young also explained the uncomfortable relationship between father and son, saying, "I'm faceless with my father. We haven't talked much since I was young, and we're still like that now." In fact, even when Jang-gwang and his wife met at home, they passed each other without saying a word, and even while the family was talking together, Jang-young appeared alone at a distance. Jang Young said, “I always spend a lot of time alone with the three of us. I’m used to it now.”

Jang Young confessed about her father, "He wasn't like that to my sister, but he was very coercive towards me. He was a very scary person to me." At the same time, he confessed, "I heard a lot of hurtful things (from my father). From criticism about acting, I also heard things like, 'There are guys who are more handsome and better at acting than you, and they're tougher.'" And he confessed the hurt in his heart, saying that such harsh words piled up and made him think, “I am a person who doesn’t know how to do anything.”

Meanwhile, an incident occurs where emotions explode between the father and son, maximizing the tension. Jang Young expressed his anger, saying, "Would I steal my dad's medicine? I've been suspected several times now." In response, Jang Gwang said, "I'm really tired," and added, "That's why I don't talk to my son as much as possible." In the end, Jang Young ran out as if all that had been building up had exploded. Jang Gwang did not understand his son's attitude, saying, "Is it okay to react like that?" What really happened to Jang Gwang and his father and why they became so conflicted will be revealed through the broadcast of 'Dad and Me.'

The different stories of father and son Jang Gwang, a son who says, “Please accept me as I am,” and a father who says, “Even nagging is for my son’s benefit,” will be aired on “Dad and Me” at 10 p.m. on the 10th.
