The AKMU siblings, Lee Chanhyuk and Lee Soohyun, appeared on Human Documentary with their mother. The family trio went on a luxury camping trip where they had delicious barbecue and talked about their lives back in Mongolia.
During their talk, Chanhyuk and Soohyun’s mom suddenly apologized to her children. She shed tears as she apologized for having them become the head of the household at such as young age.
I felt sorry towards my kids when they became singers. I’m sorry that they had to become the head of the household so quickly at a young age.
— AKMU’s Mom
AKMU’s parents are missionaries who travel the world with little funds. The siblings recalled having to be homeschooled because their parents didn’t have enough money to send them to school.
AKMU competed and won on K-Pop Star 2 back in 2012, and the duo debuted soon after when they were just young teenagers. It appears their parents felt sorry for them having to give up their youth to begin working.
AKMU’s mom continued to apologize, saying “I’m sorry. I’m sorry, kids. Your mom and dad are sorry.” Chanhyuk went up to his mom and wiped her tears as he soothed her by saying, “My mom cries easily these days.”
The family soon brightened up as AKMU began doing what they do best – playing music! Chanhyuk also later mentioned that although he wishes he could attend college, he prefers being on stage right now.
So don’t worry, Mama AKMU! Your kids are doing just fine and living life!
