On August 27, SBS “Good Morning” aired a special report about Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung’s recently revealed relationship. The report said that the two frequently dated around Lee Byung Hun’s home in Gwangju, a small city in the outskirts of Seoul (not to be confused with Gwangju in Jeolla Province).
The production team went around Lee Byung Hun’s home and spoke with the neighbors to get a better idea of how often and since when the star couple was seen in the area. One of the neighbors said, “Yes, I am aware of their relationship. It was reported on the news and newspapers all the time.”
“Lee Min Jung visited Lee Byung Hun’s home since April. I saw them at least once a week. They usually stayed at Lee Byung Hun’s house just briefly and left. I heard Lee Byung Hun’s mother say good things about Lee Min Jung,” the neighbor continued.
But when asked if he thought the couple would get married, he only said, “I think it’s a little too early to talk about that.”
Meanwhile, Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung went public with their relationship on August 19 by posting their feelings about each other on their respective homepages.
