Tak agrees on his divorce settlement


Entertainer Tak Jae-hoon, a former member of the singing duo Country Koko, has agreed on the divorce settlement with his former wife, Lee Hyo-rim, after the couple filed for divorce last May.

Tak and Lee brought the date of the settlement forward in order to lessen the pressure their two children are suffering due to their divorce, the entertainer told Yonhap News on Wednesday.

“We had a conflict on the custody issue, but Lee has been raising the children and I felt bad about asking the children their opinion, so the custody was handed over to Lee,” said Tak through Yonhap.

When asked about his plans on participating in TV programs, he mentioned that he has no plan to return to broadcasting programs so far.

Tak and Lee married in May 2001 and were together for 14 years.

Lee filed a lawsuit against Tak last Feburary citing that he had affairs with three women, which she said negatively affected their family.

Tak refuted her claims.

The entertainer was sentenced to six months in prison with one year of probation for gambling in 2013.
