Seo Taiji is very well-known in the Kpop world.
He recently appeared back in the spotlight through a messy divorce settlement in 2011, (he actually divorced in 2006). Nobody even knew he had been married until then, since he’s such a private person.
Now, he’s announced that he’s getting married to actress Lee Eun-Sung, whom he met when she acted in his music video for “Bermuda Triangle” 5 years ago.
Some people are judging this situation since Seo Taiji is 41-years-old and Lee Eun-Sung is [almost] 25. However, she was an adult when they met, and have been dating for 4 years. Therefore, it doesn’t appear to be a whim, (some speculate that it could be a “shotgun wedding” but they’ve been together long enough where I don’t think that matters if it happens to be true). There are almost 17 years between them, which seems to be a safe line between people saying he’s “old enough to be her father” and young enough to be her older brother. They even look good together, as Seo Taiji never appears to age, haha. I don’t see a problem here.
In any case, it’s really none of our business. Taiji doesn’t like sharing his personal life. Apparently reporters couldn’t get to his door after he announced this engagement. The wedding is going to be private. We’ll just know they’re married, but I’m guessing we won’t see or hear much about it in the future.
Congrats to Seo Taiji and Lee Eun Sung!
