Jang Gwang revealed his uncomfortable relationship with his son.

Jang Gwang's family appeared on TV Chosun's entertainment show 'Daddy and Me' that aired on the afternoon of the 10th.

Jang Gwang's daughter Mija married Kim Tae-hyun and moved away, and often visits her parents' home. Her son, Jang Young, is an actor and is currently attending graduate school for youth counseling and working several part-time jobs.

Jang Gwang expressed his affection for his daughter Mija, saying, "She is indispensable. We are like friends who tell each other everything." On the other hand, he was somewhat cold about his son, saying, "We are not very close. There are many times during the day when we don't say a word." He also expressed his disappointment, saying, "There are a lot of things I don't like about my son. I want him to work hard and achieve something when he's young, but he doesn't put in the effort."

Jang Gwang began searching Jang Young's room to find his own nutritional supplements. Jang Young expressed his displeasure, saying, “When I am questioned, I feel insulted and I don’t feel good.” Jang Young asked, “Do you think I would steal medicine?” and added, “Whenever I get emotional at home, there are many things that my father doesn’t approve of. I don’t think I am respected for the actions I do or the emotions I feel. I even felt humiliated. “He expressed his anger. Jang Gwang said, "I don't know if this is something to react to that much. I am more disappointed by my son's extreme reaction." Jang Gwang's wife, Jeon Seong-ae, ended up shedding tears as the conflict between father and son escalated.

In the end, Jang Young said, “I need to cool off,” and went out of the house. Mother Jeon Seong-ae found Jang Young and comforted her. Jang Young confessed, "My sister and I are the same age, but the temperature difference is so different. I thought, 'Is it because I'm the daughter?', 'Is it because I'm the first child?' When I was young, I thought, 'I'm probably not the biological child.'"

Jang Young said, "'At home, I do everything on my own, but I take care of my older sister to the point where I feel like it's too much. I also resent my father a lot. When I was young, I even thought that he adopted me. 'You shouldn't do that to me because you're my younger brother.' He confessed, “I felt emotionally lonely because my father didn’t approve of me because I was told, ‘I shouldn’t be that kind of person.’

Jang Young also expressed his dissatisfaction with his strict father. Jang Young said, “When I perform, my mom says, ‘It’s better than last time,’ and my dad says, ‘Is that true in that scene?’ “Isn’t it okay to say that after everything is over? There are times when I’m so discouraged that I don’t want to come,” he said, adding, “Don’t do anything, get rid of everything.”

At that time, Jang Gwang was talking to Mija. Jang Gwang revealed the reason why he was strict with his son, saying, "As a father, I wanted him to work hard and do everything when he was young. I feel like he doesn't put in that kind of effort." He continued, "If you think it's right, you'll do it until the end," and "I want to raise him well and make him a good student, and that's what I became greedy for, so I forced myself to do it."

Mija expressed regret, saying, "Only my father knows (that feeling). My family and I know, but the person who experiences it is in the form of scolding and scolding." Jang Gwang, who watched the audition program, said, "When you're in the top of the list, don't the fathers come last? What touches me when I see the father and mother together is, (if my son does well like that), will I be able to smile like that too? I thought about that while watching the audition program. “There are times to do it,” he said. He was strict with his son, who was an unknown actor, because he wanted him to succeed more than anyone else. Mija shed tears after hearing her father's inner thoughts.

Jang Gwang hoped to restore his relationship with his son, but expected it to be difficult. He said, "Because I hurt him, it's not easy to restore the relationship. It was entirely my fault. It's difficult with my son," and "Even if I feel like I want to be close, it's not easy in my current state. I have no choice but to keep walking in parallel paths."
