The comedian appeared next to it Jang Do Yeon as one of the newest masters of the cast on the August 2 SBS variety show, in which she and the members had an honest conversation about their past experiences and views on life.
At one point, Park Na Rae explained why she believed so strongly in living in the moment. “Really, we don’t know when we’ll die,” she said. “We say that people live 100 years now, but there are so many people who suddenly leave us unexpectedly for the most incredible reasons.”
She continued to share, “My father died when I was in high school. It is true that my father was not in good health at the time, but his death was so sudden. I still remember it was the day before Chuseok [Korean Thanksgiving]. ”
Park Na Rae said that she had lived in Seoul to go to high school and planned to return to her hometown to visit her parents during the vacation. “But for some strange reason, especially on this day, I wanted to hang out with my friends longer,” she recalled. “Although I was supposed to take the 6 o’clock bus, I switched to the 8 o’clock bus instead, as I had to spend three days with my parents for Chuseok anyway.”
“But when I got there,” she continued, “nobody else was home and I found my father collapsed in the bathroom. He liked to drink, so I assumed he passed out after drinking. But that was the last one from my father. “
Park Na Rae got emotional when she added, “I later found out that it would have been different if I hadn’t changed the bus and got home on time to see my father, as I originally planned. We don’t know how it would have ended. “
“Even now, I never think that death is far from our everyday life,” continued Park Na Rae, who explained that the tragedy changed her outlook on life forever. “If there is someone you want to see, you have to meet them now, and if you want to eat something, you have to eat it now. If I want to do something, I have to do it now. Because the nature of life is like this, that it wouldn’t be strange if I died at that moment. “
She continued, “So I have to do the things I want to do no matter what others say.”
