In the recent light of what has been going on with actor Lee Byung Hun being blackmailed, which media took and blew completely out of proportion before any official police report was released, it seems that his wife, Lee Min Jung, has been playing it safe and keeping out of the public eye by staying at her parents’ home in Gangnam.
A few rumors have been floating around that she visited her newlywed’s home in Gwangju with husband Lee Byung Hun and her mother-in-law, but this rumor was shot down quickly and is far from the actual truth.
According to multiple people connected to the entertainment industry, on October 2nd, Lee Min Jung left for Paris on September 3rd for a friend’s wedding and has been staying at her parents’ house ever since she returned to Korea on the 16th of September, not returning to her marital home. It has also been noted that her departure for Paris happened earlier than was originally planned.
Ever since Lee Byung Hun was involved in the blackmailing incident, his wife hasn’t visited their marital home at all and hasn’t left her parents’ house unless it was for prearranged schedules.
Other reports from media sources however, obtained from a housekeeper working at the couple’s newlywed home said, “Lee Min Jung visited Gwangju”, to which an affiliate of Lee Min Jung responded with, “Ever since the onset of the incident, she has not visited her home in Gwangju. I don’t know where the rumors came from,” adding, “She has been struggling a lot.”
Her agency also stated, “We’ve been told that Lee Min Jung has been staying at her parents’ house ever since she returned from Paris. She has been carrying out only the limited amount of official schedules and confining herself at home.”
Whatever the case may be, it must be hard to cope with something like this, even though most of the matter has been settled. Hopefully Lee Min Jung can return peacefully to her marital home soon, and the couple can continue on with their lives as planned.
