Lee Wan and His Sister Kim Tae-hee

Though they are siblings, when Lee Wan first debuted, he was hiding the fact that he was Kim Tae-hee’s brother. He even changed his name to hide that fact. On an episode of Law of the Jungle in 2017, he said, “When we ran into each other on set, I would bow to her and act as if we were acquaintances.”

Once, he made netizens realize that his sister is human too by saying that Kim Tae-hee usually is not as pretty as she looks on TV at home. “My older sister is really unattractive at home. She makes a lot of blank faces. We also don’t connect well, and she’s far from the type of girl I like. We don’t care enough to fight.” This remark made viewers laugh and made them realize that his sister is indeed only a human being.

Now that his sister has married popular singer Rain, Lee Wan is living with his mom. He was asked in an interview whether he is envious about his sister’s marriage or not, and he answered, “I’m not envious, but I’m getting pressured now at home since my sister got married.” He also added that although he felt awkward around Rain at first, now they are slowly becoming a family and getting closer.
