Lee Ji Ah Reveals that She Didn’t Contact Her Parents for Seven Years Due to Her Secret Marriage to Seo Taiji

On the latest episode of SBS talk show “Healing Camp,” actress Lee Ji Ah finally opened up about her former marriage to star Seo Taiji.

She shocked the viewers by revealing that she cut off all contact with her family for years while she was married to Seo Taiji. She said, “I contacted my parents after seven years. It took me seven years to see them. That was the situation back then. I chose to live an abnormal life because that’s what that person [Seo Taiji] wanted. I thought that was part of protecting our love.” 

In 2011, Lee Ji Ah and Seo Taiji’s former secret marriage was brought forth into spotlight due to the proceeding divorce settlements. 

Lee Ji Ah also spoke of the day that the news broke out. She said, “I received the call while eating out with a close friend. I’ve never felt such strong emotions before. My hands were shaking and I felt like I was melting. I didn’t want to acknowledge it because it was a secret that I dedicated my whole life to protecting.” She also added, “when that secret was revealed, I thought, ‘this is how I’m gonna die.'”
