Last April 12th, 2011, U-KISSâ€™s Dongho had joined the SBSâ€™s Strong Heart and shared the story about the things that happened when he ran away from home.
On one of his particularly turbulent time in his life, Dongho had revealed that he once packed all the things that he owned and put it in a very big luggage and left his house for a bank. Even though he is still very young, the singer had explained, â€œI asked and found out that I had quite a lot under my name. I sold all of my stocks and ELS and withdrew everything I had in my account.â€
As he mentioned ELS, the studio had begun murmuring with them; all are confused over what it was. Even though the smarter of the MCs, Lee Seung Gi had acknowledge that it is the first time he head heard. For the amusement of the audiences, Shindong had asked, â€œIs it like an ARS?â€
Dongho added, â€œItâ€™s not anything important.Â Anyway, I withdrew all of the cash and felt like I finally had the world back in my hands. I really regret not leaving home earlier.â€
He also said that he had chosen to go in Busan just to see the ocean and he had reserved a room in one of the top hotels of the said city. Moon Hee Jun had cut him off and questioned, â€œYou know what an ELS is, but you donâ€™t know that you can also see the ocean in Incheon as well?â€
After so much laughter, the singer ended his story by saying that he had given up his plans of going away to Busan and left instead because of his grandfather that was also celebrating his 80th birthday. He suddenly tears up and stated, â€œWhat still gets me is that in all of the pictures from my grandfatherâ€™s 80th birthday, Iâ€™m not in any of them.Â It was such a joyful celebration for everyone, but my parents can be seen with their faces white with fear and forcing a smile for the camera.Â That really broke my heart.â€
