Uhm Tae Woong was touched by his daughter’s protectiveness on the most recent episode of KBS 2TV’s “Superman Returns” that aired on September 27.
In celebration of Chuseok, Uhm Tae Woong and Uhm Ji On visit the Korean Folk Village.
When the two pass by the ancient police bureau, the policemen suddenly drag Uhm Tae Woong to the flogging stick. When it seems that Uhm Tae Woong is in danger of being hurt, Ji On bursts into tears in concern for her dad.
“I’m sorry. It’s all my fault,” the policemen apologize.
“She was telling me to stand up because she was worried that I would be flogged by the strangers,” Uhm Tae Woon says in an interview afterwards. “Though daughters seem to want to protect their fathers, I thought that I should rather be a dad who is always reassured and reliable.”
