The child has not been away from me even for a moment, and he’s now somehow become an elementary school student. He’s my motivation and the most precious thing I have. I will protect him forever. Its because of his existence that I gain strength even when I am tired.”
The statement she’s released to her SNS was a long one and she went into details about how she’s raising her child alone after getting a divorce, she had previously revealed she has no plans to remarry and she was a divorcee but fans weren’t aware whether she had a child with her previous spouse.

“I’m just a webtoon writer, but I’m also getting a lot of attention from people, so I am opening up about my personal history like this. Raising a child alone is sometimes difficult, but when you see your child’s laughter, all the difficulties disappear. I will live my life even harder to protect him.
I feel very nervous posting about this, but thank you for listening to my story.”
