On the latest episode of SBS’ Strong Heart, MBLAQ’s Lee Joon discussed the difficulties he faced growing up in a poor family.
The singer explained that growing up, his family could only afford him one ballet outfit. He felt ashamed and his pride was hurt. He was so embarrassed that he would practice at school alone at night.
“We didn’t have any money, so I couldn’t even go on school trips.”
Despite the difficulties he faced growing up in poverty, the idol pushed through the hard times, graduating from high school then pursuing his dream of dancing. After having a rough start, he feels blessed to be an idol.
Aww, we’re blessed to have our very special Princess Joonie. There would be fewer rainbows in the world without him.
