In the fall of 1999, at the age of 15, Chansik went abroad to the Philipines to finish high school and later to go to veterinary school. He graduated 2005 with his degree in veterinary medicine.
In 2007 Chansik started his two years of mandatory Korean military service. In 2008 he volunteered to go to Iraq where he served alongside American troops. His main jobs were to help with health inspections and to care for military dogs. His military service ended in 2009.
In 2010 Chansik donated 80% of his liver to his mother who was suffering from liver cirrhosis. The transplant was successful, though all of the money Chansik had earned in the military had to go towards paying for the surgeries.
Chansik went on to teach English at private schools and to work as a vet in Incheon, South Korea.
In 2014 he met Becca and they now reside in Incheon where Chansik continues his work as a vet. He is now interested in expanding his studies to include human medicine.”
