Has Lee Byung-hun’s wife moved out?


Lee Min-jung

Actress Lee Min-jung is reportedly living separately from her husband, Lee Byung-hun, who is currently involved in a scandal with an actor and a model, according to local media yesterday.

Lee Min-jung is at her parent’s house in Gangnam District, southern Seoul, and will stay there for the time being, said a report by Ilgan Sports, an affiliate of the Korea JoongAng Daily.

“[Lee] usually visits her parent’s house after finishing a work project,” the actress’s agency said, according to Ilgan Sports.

“We don’t know precisely when she will return, but we assume it will probably take a while.”

The agency warned not to pay “too much attention” to the actress’s location.

Two women are under investigation for allegedly threatening to release a video clip of Lee, 44, drinking with them and using lewd language in exchange for 5 billion won ($5 million).

One of the suspects turned out to be Da-hee, 20, a member of the girl group GLAM. The other, 25, is reportedly a model.

Lee posted a handwritten apology on his homepage on Sept. 6, which read: “Regardless of whether it was intentional, or whether I was threatened, this is all due to my imprudence from the very beginning.” He added, “I will do my best to no longer disappoint my wife and family, who are now in so much pain.”

The couple tied the knot last August.
