Lee Hyo-ri asks press to stopSinger Lee Hyo-ri said she felt sorry for her future parents-in-law after her mother-in-law-to-be said she was being harassed by local reporters asking for interviews.
“I received a long text message from the mother of my boyfriend,” said Lee on her Twitter feed.
“Reporters go to her almost every day, waiting for hours until they agree to an interview. She said they feel bad for ignoring those reporters, but they don’t want be interviewed as it may harm us in some way.”
Lee then added that her future mother-in-law said she wants to quit running her business and move somewhere quieter.
“I feel so burdened. Please stop,” Lee asked.
Lee, who has been in a relationship with composer Lee Sang-soon since 2011, recently announced plans to get married next month.
But because the singer said that she doesn’t want a fancy wedding, preferring instead just to have a quiet meal with both sets of parents and close family members, many in the media have been questioning whether their parents support the couple’s decision to avoid a big and luxurious wedding.
