On February 3, actor Kwon Sang Woo was featured in the first episode of ‘JTBC’s ‘This Is My Home,’ an exclusive project building homes for unfortunate families (similar to ‘Extreme Makeover Home Edition‘).
He stated his reason for appearing on the show, “I liked the title. ‘This Is My Home’ has a thoughtful meaning behind it. The word home itself is significant to me.” Having an unprivileged childhood, a home has a special place in the actor’s heart too.
Together, Lee Kyung Kyu, Chae Jung Ahn, and Kwon Sang Woo headed to the home of the unfortunate family. The home was in very poor condition and was built over 100 years ago. “We have to tear it down,” said Lee Kyung Kyu, staring at the old house. “This is so shocking, to even think that children live here. It’s unbelievable,” said Chae Jung Ahn. “I came after reading the letter but I didn’t think it was going to be this bad,” commented Kwon Sang Woo.
Demolishing the old house:
With construction expert Mr. Yang overseeing the production, the trio began to work. Once the old house was demolished, they met together to discuss the blueprint and layout. “I want to present a special space for them,” said Mr. Yang.
Kwon Sang Woo spent a lot of time with the children, while the new house was being constructed.
Upon seeing the completed home, everyone was amazed and the family was thankful. The children looked around the house admiring the modern interior.
