Lee Byung-hun talks about girlfriend
The two went public with their relationship in April last year, four months after local media first reported that the two were dating.
Lee said they first met through mutual acquaintances in 2006 when his girlfriend started working in the entertainment business.
“I was worried that I could hinder her career,” Lee explained. “And I had to be abroad for about a year for filming, so we ended things.”
The two seldom talked during their time apart, and when they met again, Lee Min-jung surprised Lee Byung-hun by avoiding eye contact.
“I called her one night after I saw her in my dream and asked why she avoided me,” Lee said. “She said she hated me for looking like I didn’t have [any remaining] feelings.”
It was only an act, though, and the couple reunited when the actor returned to Korea. By Lee Sun-min
