The actress still accepts her husband despite him being a well-known lady-killer in Korean showbiz.
Lee Min Jung is a famous beauty of the Korean film industry. In the early years of her career, she was noticed due to her role as the rich fiancée of the male lead in the legendary drama “Boys Over Flower“. Throughout her career, she has starred in quite a few hit dramas, such as “Cyrano Agency”, “Wonderful Radio”, “Cunning Single Lady”, “Come Back Mister”,… But now, what imprints in the audiences’ minds of her is just her husband, Lee Byung Hun, whom she loves so much to the point of risking everything.
Despite being born with a silver spoon in her mouth, Lee Min Jung managed to stand on her own two feet and once owned a life that thousands of people dreamed of. Beautiful and talented, she is the daughter of a wealthy family, with her father being the CEO of a large advertising agency. Her mother is a pianist while her grandfather – Park No Soo – is also one of the top artists in Korea. As her family has both economic conditions and artistic background, she soon set her foot in Korean showbiz at the age of 17 but did not rely on her family. Although her acting was not impressive at first, with her outstanding physique and luxurious charisma, Lee Min Jung was even granted the nickname “the next Kim Tae Hee”.
She is known as being “crazy over the husband”
Gorgeous and always striving to improve herself, Lee Min Jung should have had a shining future or at least a worthy position in showbiz, but what reminds people of her now only revolves around her husband Lee Byung Hun. Despite being the current favorite actor of Korean showbiz, Lee Byung Hun’s past is indelible. In 2009, he almost lost his career to a woman accusing him of love baiting her and participating in illegal gambling abroad. Such a scandal, but Lee Min Jung still chose to be with this man as the two got married in 2013. Min Jung was thought to be very lucky to marry a top actor in the Korean movie industry. But after 1 year, when she was pregnant, Lee Byung Hun was caught in an affair with two rising female stars and was blackmailed by them.
At that time, Lee Byung Hun reported to the police, accusing female idol Dahee (GLAM) and model Lee Ji Yeon of blackmailing him 5 billion won. After that, these two female stars were punished by the law for blackmailing, but what the public was most interested in was Lee Byung Hun, who had personally “unveiled” himself, and how he cheated with those two girls while his wife was pregnant. However, the powerful star couple’s love life did not end because of this. Lee Byung Hun tried to save the marriage, apologized to his wife many times in public, and also went to his wife’s house to apologize and clarify the misunderstandings. Seeing the sincerity of her husband, Lee Min Jung decided to forgive him. This decision of hers made the public extremely surprised because the evidence of Lee Byung Hun’s cheating was so clear, many people mocked that she only did that for her husband’s huge fortune.
Currently, Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung are still a power couple of the Korean showbiz, and they also have a beautiful son. After the shocking scandal, Lee Byung Hun gradually regained the sympathy of the Korean audience with quality works while Min Jung gradually stepped back to take care of the family. She still rarely acts, but her later works were not of good quality. many fans even turned their backs on her because of her choice in the past.
The explanation for Lee Min Jung’s choice perhaps can only be “love”. Hopefully, in the future, that choice will still be the right one for her!
