Top star Lee Young-ae (Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, Dae Jang Geum) has announced her pregnancy, which comes one year after she quietly married a Korean-American businessman.
A rep with her management company gave the statement that she is treading carefully at this stage and didn’t confirm how far along she is, although her father reportedly said that she is four months along. The rep also stated that contrary to some reports, she will not stop her studies. (Lee is currently working on her doctorate degree at Hanyang University.)
Lee, now 39, has kept her personal life quite private and married in secret in August 2009, in a ceremony that took place in Hawaii. She has been quietly attending school in the meantime, and the last time she popped up in the public eye was when she attended a basketball game with her husband in April.
Congratulations to Lee Young-ae.
