Lee Dong-Gun says he cannot be any happier with his life with Jo Yoon-Hee and their daughter!
On September 30 broadcast of “My Ugly Duckling,” actor Lee Dong-Gun appeared as the special MC and talked about life with Jo Yoon-Hee. Throughout the broadcast, the actor did not hold back on expressing his love for his wife, Jo Yoon-Hee and their daughter, Roah.
The couple met through KBS 2TV drama “The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop” in 2016. They were partners in the drama, who continued their relationship in real life, as well. After the end of the drama, they went public with their relationship and revealed that they were already legally married. In September, 2017, they held their official wedding and gave birth to their daughter in December.
During the broadcast, Lee Dong-Gun shared the behind story that led to the marriage.
The actor said, “we were partners in the drama. We dated each other, got married, and had a child together. At the end of the drama, I wondered if it was okay for me to let it all go. I didn’t have much thought about marriage until I met Jo Yoon-Hee. I realized if I let her go, then I might never get married.”
He continued, “also, it’s a rare thing for a person to think they are truly happy. But I’m happy right now. We began our relationship with marriage in mind and we both wanted to have a child as soon as possible. So we decided to register our marriage, first. And then, we were immediately gifted with a child, so we rushed into our wedding.”
At the end, Lee Dong-Gun shared about how the couple manages to keep love alive in midst of busy schedule and taking care of their daughter. When Seo Jang-Hoon asked about the “expiration date” of love that exists in every relationship, the actor said “there is no such thing.”
He said, “people usually compare love to a fire. After getting married, I have noticed that that fire sometimes gets very weak, and only sparks from time to time. That’s when you may think love has died. However, you can blow on the sparks and the fire will comeback. It doesn’t matter who blows onto it, whether the husband or the wife, the fire will always comeback. Therefore, I don’t think there is such thing as an “expiration date” when it comes to love.”
