[TALK OF THE TOWN]Custody questions settled for kids of the late actress Choi Jin-sil
Former baseball player Cho Sung-min, the ex-husband of the late actress Choi Jin-sil, has agreed to give up his parental rights to the couple’s two children.
Choi’s mother, Jung Ok-sook, will be the children’s legal guardian. At a press conference last Monday at Seocho Art Hall in Banpo-dong, southern Seoul, Cho said he will give up both his parental and property rights. Cho gave up his custodial rights after the couple divorced in 2004 but regained them after Choi’s death in October.
“I have never sought any part of Choi’s fortune,” he said. “I will no longer leave a scar in my children’s hearts but only love them.”
