Lee Byung-hun talks about his lover
드디어 입 연 이병헌 "내게 그녀는…"
All eyes were on Hallyu actor Lee Byung-hun when he attended a press conference for the movie “Gwanghae” yesterday at a pub in Jongno District, central Seoul.
Despite the fact that the event was staged to promote the movie co-starring actors Han Hyo-joo, Ryu Seung-ryong and Kim In-kwon, reporters bombarded Lee with questions about his girlfriend, Lee Min-jung.
“I owe so much to her,” Lee said. “We can talk for hours, and she is also the only woman who can make me laugh.”
The 42-year-old star did add that their 12-year age gap was not ideal.
“I do feel bad for her that she’s dating someone so much older,” he said. But he added that Lee Min-jung was wise beyond her years and had recently impressed not only him but the cast and crew of his movie by sending them homemade lunch.
In regards to making the public announcement just last month, Lee said it has made life easier.
“It’s nice to think that we don’t have to hide our relationship,” he said.
