Comedian Ji Suk-jin (pictured) recalled memories of his father.
In tvN STORY’s ‘Anti-Ageym’ broadcast on the 13th, Ji Suk-jin, Park Jun-hyung, Song Young-gyu, Choi Gwi-hwa, and Lee Ho-cheol appeared and talked about life-sustaining treatment.
‘Life-sustaining treatment’ refers to a treatment that simply extends life to a patient who has already entered the dying process.
Park Jun-hyung brought up the story of his 12-year-old dog, saying, “I had a lump under my dog’s tongue, so I went to the hospital and was told that he had to have his chin cut in half. how do you do that He also hates chemotherapy,” he said. “I want my dog to be happy for the rest of his life. I think that’s the best. The desire to be together for a long time can be painful for a dog. That’s a bigger sin,” he said.
Ji Suk-jin, who heard this, said, “My father also died while in the hospital.” Ji Suk-jin’s father, who was in good health, suddenly became ill.
About the time, Ji Suk-jin said, “As usual, the moment I was about to say hello and go to the hospital, the hospital room suddenly became noisy.” “My father had symptoms. Then the doctor urgently asked, ‘Are you going to do life-sustaining treatment?’ That’s when he first heard the word,” he recalled.
The doctor at the time said, “If you don’t take life-sustaining treatment now, you can die early in the morning. So, make your choice now.” Ji Suk-jin, despite his father’s opposition, chose life-sustaining treatment.
Ji Suk-jin said, “I told my father, ‘Trust me,’ and then I saw his father’s fearful eyes for the first time. He was very afraid,” he said in a difficult way.
After that, Ji Suk-jin’s father died after living another four months. However, Ji Suk-jin said, “I am still very sad about the way I was during that time. He said, “You worked so hard.” He regretted saying, “If the same situation comes up, I wouldn’t do it.”
Ji Suk-jin said, “Even in their 60s and 70s, worrying about intubation due to a traffic accident is not a life-sustaining treatment. It is just medical treatment for treatment,” he said.
