During a recent episode of KBS1’s ‘Morning Yard’, comedian Si-deok Kim bravely shared the painful memories of his childhood, revealing a story that touched the hearts of many.
Kim, now 42 years old, recounted his challenging upbringing with an emotional tale of ‘bread soaked in tears’ on the show.
Opening up about his status as an illegitimate child, Kim admitted that he had to fend for himself from a young age due to his parents’ lack of responsibility. “My father left to start his own family, and my mother also began her life anew, leaving me to live independently since I was just 9 years old. My journey began with delivering 60 newspapers every day,” he revealed.
Despite facing adversity, Kim defied the odds and pursued a career in comedy. He shared, “Teachers told me that being poor and without parents would lead me to trouble and redefine my place in society. However, I have proved them wrong by dedicating 23 years to being a radiographer since my debut. I want to proudly declare this to those who doubted me. I have overcome hardships, married a wonderful woman, established a family, and have a clean record. I have even become a father. Please continue to support me, as I will never falter.” His powerful speech elicited applause from the audience.
When asked by MC Kim Jae-won about his experiences growing up alone from the age of 9, Kim Si-deok shared, “I wasn’t particularly athletic, but in middle school, I raised my hand to become a special education student as it would exempt me from paying school fees. This decision led me to live in a two-pyeong room, work as a newspaper delivery boy, at a paint factory, and even on a construction site. Despite these difficulties, I never failed the comedian’s exam and passed with flying colors.”
Kim Si-deok rose to fame as a comedian through the 16th KBS open recruitment in 2001. His appearances on KBS2’s ‘Gag Concert’ segments, such as ‘Park Joon-hyung’s Dialect of Life’ and ‘Mappagi’, garnered immense love from the audience. He tied the knot with a flight attendant in May 2008 and welcomed a son. Although his broadcasting activities came to a pause in 2010 due to ankylosing spondylitis, Kim has recently made a comeback.
