“Dae Jang Geum” Star Lee Young Ae Becomes a Mother of Twins


Lee Young Ae, Hallyu star and actress from the drama “Dae Jang Geum,” became a mother of twin babies. According to her agency Storms Company, Lee Young Ae gave birth to twin babies—a boy and a girl—on the morning of Feb. 20th at the Seoul Jaeil Hospital. Her agency further revealed that Lee Young Ae delivered her twin babies through natural childbirth and that “the mother and the babies are all in healthy conditions.”

National as well as foreign media have been expressing much attention to news about her birth because she hasn’t been seen in public since her secret marriage in Hawaii on August, 2009. Lee Young Ae, who emerged as a top star in Asia through MBC’s historical drama “Dae Jang Geum,” has tentatively suspended her acting career since her last movie “Sympathy for Lady Vengeance,” produced by “Old Boy“ director Park Chan Wook. So the charming actress ended the first act of her life as a successful actress and has started her second act in life as a lovely mom. She’s ambitious and blessed just like Dae Jang Geum.
