Previously, Mr. Ko had been receiving treatment for a disease since 10 years ago, but was diagnosed that treatment was no longer possible due to side effects due to long-term medication.

His husband, Mr. Seo, thought that he should at least take his liver away, and persuaded the hospital staff for several months.

However, the medical team could not easily allow Seo to operate. Because of her advanced age, she could be put in a dangerous situation during the surgery.

Her husband, Mr. Seo, said, “Because I am also an elderly person, the hospital refused to do a liver transplant because it was dangerous. Still, this was the only way to save her wife.”

His son, Hyeon-seok, was also in a situation that was not up to the level of restraint of general donors.

In the end, the father and son decided to take a part of their liver and give it to Mr. Ko in a ‘2:1 transplant’ method, in which livers are received from two donors and transplanted

The surgery, which took a long time, was successfully completed, but even after that, tension continued.
