Lee Byung Hun and his wife, actress Lee Min Jung, appear to be a happy couple in a recent Instagram photo. In the picture, the renown stars are depicted at a restaurant and are surrounded by a bevvy of their friends.
On December 16, the Korean publication Sports Chosun praised the actors for their relaxed presence in the social media post, which exemplifies domestic harmony and reconciliation.
The new parents welcomed their first child in March 2015, following a tumultuous period which included their departure from Korea, as Lee Byung Hun pursued projects in the United States.
In September 2014, Lee was embroiled in a legal dispute with former K-pop girl group member Dahee and Lee Ji Yeon, a model. The women allegedly blackmailed Lee, after filming footage where he allegedly delivered jokes rife with sexual innuendo.
While he categorically denied having an extramarital affair, the situation led Lee to deliver a public apology to his family.
2015 was a busy year for Lee, as he successfully tackled the scandal to return to the silver screen as T-1000 in the Hollywood production, "Terminator Genisys," followed by the period flick, "Memories of the Sword."
While detractors continued to reference the alleged blackmail plot during promotions for the latest installment in the "Terminator" series and "Memories of the Sword," Lee was praised for his "Inside Men" performance.
Meanwhile, fans of Lee Min Jung anticipate her return to Korean drama and film. Her last K-Drama role was in the 2014 MBC romantic comedy, "Cunning Single Lady," where she portrayed Na Ae Ra, a divorcee who attempts to woo her ex-husband by working as an intern at his technology firm.
