Marco defended from local rumors
The agency for model-turned-actor Marco is defending him following rumors that have sprung up following his divorce from professional golfer Ahn Shi-hyun.“Although he was once a model, he doesn’t enjoy buying luxury items, and he supported his family after he got married,” an agency official told Ilgan Sports, an affiliate of the Korea JoongAng Daily, on Tuesday.
“It is also absurd to hear that he got divorced over financial difficulties as he was taking part in two or three TV programs and was earning more than enough.”
The official also denied the couple were fighting before a large row that brought police to the couple’s home in June.
“Marco left for his family home in Argentina about a month ago, saying that he needs some time off,” said the official. “He currently has no official events booked and is spending some time by himself.”
