Lee Min Jung has taken a few trips to Los Angeles in recent months to spend time with her husband Lee Byung Hun. But her agency recently announced that she plans to return to Korea for good around the Lunar New Year, which is February 19. After that she will remain in Korea until her child is born.
According to MS Team Entertainment, "She will be back around Lunar New Year's Day and spend the holiday with her family. Lee Byung Hun's return to Korea has not been decided yet."
Lee Min Jung's due date is in April. The agency announced her pregnancy on Jan. 19, saying that at the time she was 27 weeks pregnant. At the time they explained why they had waited to reveal the pregnancy.
"It's a blessing to welcome a baby into a family, but we were hesitant to announce this, due to the recent unfortunate circumstances," said the press release. "We also had to consider her condition before revealing the news about her pregnancy. Please understand why we had to be careful about revealing her pregnancy to the public."
The announcement came days after the sentencing in a blackmail case in which her husband Lee Byung Hun was the victim. Model Lee Ji Yeon and GLAM's Da Hee were convicted of asking for $5 million not to release video footage of the actor engaged in a sexually explicit conversation. Da Hee received a one-year sentence and Lee Ji Yeon a 14-month sentence on Jan. 15. They both appealed the decision.
Because of insinuations made during the blackmail case there was some speculation that the couple's marriage would be in trouble. Lee Min Jung moved to her parents' home, saying she did so to avoid reporters. But then she accompanied her husband to Los Angeles and was photographed with him there. The couple was last seen together at an amusement park. Lee Byung Hun is currently in the U.S. for work. He has a role in the upcoming "Terminator" sequel "Terminator Genysis."
When Lee Min Jung announced the news of her pregnancy, she thanked her fans for their support.
"Despite my worries, I am going to stay determined and strong for the family," she said. "I will try my best not to disappoint those who have waited and cared for me all this time."
The "Cunning Single Lady" star has no plans to work for the rest of her pregnancy.
