Korean actor Jae Hee has admitted a report regarding his secret marriage and son.
Jae Hee belatedly announced his marriage that has been closed to the public over the past years through his agency’s press release on October 23.
Stressing that he was trying to keep it “private” rather than “confidential," he quickly responded to Korean ladies magazine Womensense's Tuesday report that he has been hiding his marriage and son.
As soon as the magazine's November was published this morning, the gossip began to spread fast online.
“I have been enjoying a happy marriage life with the one who always stands next to me in good and bad times. I wasn't trying to hide her existence but I was simply not mentioning about it to protect my beloved one who is not a celebrity,” the actor said in a statement.
Jae Hee, whose real name is Lee Hyun-kyun, was brought to wide public attention with Kim Ki-duk’s art film “3-Iron” (2004). He shot to stardom by starring in KBS’ drama “Delightful Girl Choon-Hyang” (2005) and SBS’ “Witch Yoo Hee” (2007).
