Korean Celebrities: Secret Marriages


Example of a highly publicized celebrity wedding – Haha & Byul.

From rumors started by some kind of evidence, (IU & Eunhyuk), to rumors with no tangible evidence, (Zico & Hwayoung), a lot of couple” scandals” happen in Korea.

There have been quite a few brave celebrities and idols getting married or publicly dating, like Sunye from the Wonder Girls or the Hara & Junhyung couple. But, not surprisingly, there are many who decide to hide their relationships for as long as possible. While some break up and are either never discovered or confessed years later, here are some who’s hidden marriages were recently discovered!

jae hee

Jae Hee

Actor Jae Hee starred in “Delightful Girl Choon-hyang” and “May Queen” among other dramas and movies. Born in May 1980, he’s currently 32 years old.

It was recently discovered that he is  legally married and has a 1-year-old kid.

He didn’t reveal it because he wanted to keep his personal life private. He didn’t want his wife to have to deal with anything that comes with fame.


Lee Tae Sung

Lee Tae Sung 

Actor Lee Tae Sung has acted in “Playful Kiss” and “Rooftop Prince” among other dramas and movies. Born in April 1985, he’s currently 27 years old.

Almost a mirror of Jae Hee’s story… registered for legal marriage and has a 1-year-old.

He recently announced plans for a  formal wedding on Twitter, saying they had to wait for his pregnant fiance’s health since she supposedly got pregnant while they were planning the marriage. and then the death of a relative postponed the formal wedding ceremony further.


seo taiji

Seo Taiji

Seo Taiji is a legendary musician in Korea. Born in February 1972, he’s currently 40 years old.

It was a giant shock to everyone when news came out that Seo Taiji had been secretly married for years to actress Lee Ji-ah. They had gotten married in 1997, but divorced in 2006. Supposedly, they separated in 2000 after just three years of marriage, but didn’t actually divorce until much later. It’s not certain whether they had any children together. Most sources say they didn’t, but there are rumors of two daughters. I would believe they don’t have any children, but the two celebrities are so secretive that it’s hard not to have some suspicions.

Both Seo Taiji and Lee Ji-ah are great at keeping their lives private, (not to mention Seo Taiji’s financial means to do so), which is why their marriage was able to remain a secret until Lee Ji-ah decided to sue Seo Taiji for alimony in 2011.

Things like this really make one wonder… who else out there is actually dating, engaged or married? Not that it’s any of our business, but it is a pretty intriguing thought. It probably wouldn’t be unreasonable to assume that most of them are actually currently dating!
For those delusional fan types, it’s probably best for them to come to terms with this thought before their hearts are broken by something like this, haha.
