Lee Young Ae’s “secret” marriage

The hottest talk of the town since yesterday is not the failed sattelite launching but the marriage of Korean actress and Hallyu star Lee Young Ae, who’s best known for her portrayal of “Dae Jang Geum”. What’s “shocking” to some (but not to me) is that she married someone who’s more than a decade older than her.

Lee Young Ae, who also starred in the movies JSA and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, married a “gyopo” or a Korean-American businessman named Jeong (first name not mentioned in the news) on August 24th.

At 38, the “Jewel in the Palace” is still one of the A-listers of Korean showbusiness.

    what the heck? you have no idea how many young Korean males still fantasize about her, she could’ve married someone 10 years younger if she wanted to…. but 10 years older? =(

    @drsnowmon… what did you expect? Shes a gold digger. Who wants to marry some old-coot Korean? The only people with money in Korea are old, and old-fashioned thinking. She married for cash… which would make her a prostitute by definition.

      I think these days, women are a lot wiser than before. I guess that it’s not because of money. She is one of the A list actresses in Korea. So it means, money isn’t matter at all. C’mon guys! She’s not the only person in the world who get married with a dirty old man. It’s about the security. Why would she choose a young guy with lower salary than her? And what’s wrong if she just married for cash?

    Well, I am not really shocked at all.. It’s about time that she settle down, she is already a woman of age and so on.

    It is a totally NONSENSE and RUBBISH idea, her marrying just for money.. She is already rich, so why would she marry JUST for financial matters? And still, there really is nothing we can do if she married a man who is more than ten years older than her, isn’t it? It’s her personal life, after all. not ours. give her a break, could you?
