The May 24 episode of "Section TV" highlighted the luxurious new residence of Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung. The couple, who returned to Korea to deliver their baby, are residing in the Samseong-dong area of Seoul.
According to the report by "Section TV," they are living in a luxury apartment whose retail price ranges from $3.6 to $4.5 million USD. The segment provided small snapshots of their new home, along with statistics outlining the property.
The tour of the apartment followed a May 18 report which stated that the Lee family had moved into the home that was previously occupied by Jang Dong Gun (No Tears for the Dead, A Gentleman's Dignity) and his wife, actress Go So Young.
BH Entertainment provided a statement about the couple's recent move to Newsen. "Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung chose their residence because it is in a convenient location," said a representative for BH Entertainment. The report also outlined the proximity of their apartment to her family and their frequent travel schedule.
Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung returned to Korea in February 2015, following a period where they had relocated to California. The couple remained away from Korea for 3 months of Lee Min Jung's pregnancy.
In September 2014, the 44-year-old actor was shrouded in controversy when he became the subject of a blackmail scandal involving former GLAM member Dahee and Lee Ji Yeon. He was allegedly blackmailed by the K-pop idol and model for large sums of money, in order to prevent the leak of a video where the film star was alleged to make inappropriate comments. He issued an apology to his family, following the sentencing of the two women.
On March 2015, his wife gave birth to their first child, following 3 years of marriage.
While the couple has returned to Korea, they maintain a busy travel schedule. Lee Byung Hun is one of few Korean actors who has successfully transitioned to acting in Hollywood productions. He stars as T-1000 in the upcoming science fiction release "Terminator Genisys" and the pre-production film, "The Magnificent Seven."
