In this episode, the daughter "Haeun" and the father "Seo Sang-hwa" also come to "Hello Counselor", because the daughter want to see BTS :D You can read their story "My Ugly Dad" on my previous blog, here.

1st Concern: I'll Take It Easy!

The first concern comes from a 60 year old housewife, Wi Ok-ja. She comes to "Hello Counselor" because she has a problem with her husband who always sits in front of TV all day and watches programs about health. Because of this, he always forbids his family to eat certain foods because it is not good for health, such as red meat, fried chicken, sashimi, etc, and they can only drink water. He is always picky in terms of food when they eat out and can not stop nagging. He also has a problem about cleanliness and germs. Even it took him an hour just to wash three dish. Because of this, the wife is often stressed and wishing "Hello Counselor" can stop him.

I do not know why I'm not so interested in this concern. Maybe the intro story is not strong enough for me. Most of the problems that occur in a household are due to lack of communication, stubbornness, and selfishness. As in the previous episode, this time the husband is also a problem in the family because of his stubbornness and selfishness. He becomes affected by the health TV program he watches all day and forces his family to eat food that he thinks is worth eating.

The wife says that her husband is always watching TV programs about health all day long. Even when they are visiting relatives, the husband will go home just for the sake of watching the program. The husband never eats red meat and only eats boiled meat. If he wants to eat grilled meat, it has to be grilled using pure charcoal. He never eats fried chicken and only eats oven-baked chicken. He does not like sashimi because its raw and smell. He never eats junk food like pizza. He does not want his wife to put any sugar, salt, and other seasoning in his food and usually, he only eats vegetables

Yeah, all of the foods above are good for his health, but the wife complains that he went overboard with it. Whenever they try to dine out, the husband always finds faults with every restaurant and he always picky about his foods which make it tough for the wife to cook three meals a day for him. The wife even grows bean sprouts in her home and make tofu by herself. To make it worse, her husband has OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) and always nagging to her if something does not match his wishes.

Finally we meet with the husband. He says several reasons why he does not eat certain foods, such as grilled meat which cancerous, hate fishy smell, etc. He also mentions some of the health programs he often watches and most of the programs are from KBS which is where "Hello Counselor" aired :D Though he does not like junk foods but he mentioned that he likes to eats noodles, chips, and even ramyeon :D

My first impression when I saw my husband for the first time was, I did not think he was the type of picky eater and nags a lot. He does not seem to talk much and expressionless. And as a person who always cares about his health, he does not look like a healthy person and looks less energized.

"The husband's sister"

Their only son, Lee Kyung-goo, and the husband's sister also come to show to give testimony about this concern. The son tells some experiences about his father such as he and his mother can not eat fish at home and have to go eat out because his father does not like the smell of fish and how stressed his mother is to serve meals for his father. The husband's sister says that he has been like this since young. He brushed his teeth for about 30 to 45 minutes long and he used a brush to washed his hand. He was not picky eater when he was young and can eat well, but when he got sick, he became very sensitive as he is now.

We come to know that actually the husband is sick, it is called tetanic spondylitis and he has to take medication and check up regularly, that is why he is become more sensitive now. The wife says that even though her husband has problem health but he still can do some things. She just want him to get better and do something together with him like going out and meeting with friends. But what she want the most is to travel together with him.

Well, I think the husband is not that bad. He is not a stubborn type of husband. Even he can accept all the advice given and aware of his faults all this time. Maybe he just nagging a lot which I think is normal for people around his age or older. In the end, he even gives permission to his wife to do whatever she likes and he agrees to go on vacation with her.

Overall, I would vote this matters as a serious concern to support the husband. Selfish nature is not good in a relationship, especially in a family. I hope the husband could be more understanding to his wife and they can communicate every problem they face to get the best choice. I also hope that the husband will keep his promise. With this, she earned 154 votes out of 200 audiences.

"The final result with 154 votes"
