Hugh decided to get in shape to be fit for fatherhood, calling the journey his “last chance”. With his wife, Nichola, pregnant with their first child, Hugh believed that he might never have another opportunity to lose weight; therefore, he shed his dad bod and got himself a “daddy” bod.
Unfortunately, not all the attention they received was positive — although there was plenty of support and well-wishes for the Gwons and their growing family, there were those who had negative things to say, making comments about Nichola’s weight, accusing Hugh of getting plastic surgery, spreading rumors about an affair between Hugh and his personal trainer, resorting to racism, and even making fun of their baby son, Yul.
Nichola even posted some of the comments to her Twitter account.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
