Former Republic of Korea national football player Lee Young-pyo mentioned the marriage to his wife.
In TV CHOSUN’s’Sikgaek Heo Youngman’s Baekban Journey’, which aired on the 16th, Lee Young-pyo appeared and visited Inje-gun, Gangwon-do with Heo Young-man.
Heo Young-man, who was eating wild vegetables that day, told Lee Young-pyo, who had only three daughters, “If you want a son, I told you to eat Wonchu-ri.” Lee Young-pyo said, “I also ate Wonchu-ri ignorantly,” and Heo Young-man said, “You have to eat it in the age of marriage to be effective.”
Lee Young-pyo said, “I got married to my wife, but I got married for the first time,” he said. “One of the things seniors said was that soccer players shouldn’t make girlfriends, because they care about other things.”
Heo Young-man said, “It was an exemplary student,” and Lee Young-pyo said, “I was a little bit tighter than an exemplary student.”
Lee Young-pyo also revealed an anecdote when he was invited to the Saudi Arabian Prince’s house while playing at Al Hilal FC in the Saudi Professional League.
Lee Young-pyo said, “When I was in Saudi Arabia, Middle Eastern food smells like lamb and I have only bad memories.” He added, “But since the owner is a Saudi Arabian prince, I was invited to the prince’s house,” he added. “There are about 20,000 princes in Saudi Arabia, and our owner was in 20th place (power ranking).”
“One day, I went to the owner’s nephew’s house,” said Lee Young-pyo. “There were 15 people who served food for 2 people,” he said. “But there is a copsa, and the prejudice against Middle Eastern food was completely broken.”
