안녕하세요, 최민환입니다. 프리 여러분들께.. 공식적으로 가장 먼저 말씀드리고 싶은 소식이 있어서 편지를 쓰게 되었습니다. 여러분들이 제 마음을 어떻게 받아들일지 많은 생각과 걱정을 했고 오랜 고민끝에 제 진심을 전해드리기로 마음먹게 됐습니다. 힘든일도 많았지만 서로를 믿고 의지하며 지내온 여자친구와 사랑에 대한 확신으로 그 결실을 맺으려고 합니다. 결혼이라는 저의 인생에 있어서 큰결정을 내리고 많은 분들의 축하속에서 고마움을 많이 느꼈습니다. 또한 제가 감사해야할 사람들이 얼마나 많은지 다시 한번 느끼게됐습니다. 데뷔전부터 지금까지 곁에서 늘 함께하고 있는 가족같은 멤버들에게 이소식을 이야기하였을때 모두 진심으로 축하해주었고 또 다른 미래를 이야기할수있는 새로운 사이가 되었습니다. 어떻게 보답을 해드려야할지 모르겠지만.. 무엇보다 제가 감사드릴수있는 존재가 되어주신 여러분들께 진심으로 고마운 마음을 전합니다. 10년이 넘는 활동내내 저와 함께 걸어가주시는 여러분들께 지금까지 그랬듯 항상 감사한 마음 잊지 않겠습니다. 저는 지금 이자리에서 다시 또 열심히 성실하게 음악으로 보답하겠습니다. 정말 감사합니다.

After the announcement of their marriage, a media source reported that Yulhee is actually pregnant, which lead to several speculations and rumors circulating, especially on the internet. In response to this rumor, the agency of LABOUM responded that when they terminated the contract, she never mentioned that she is pregnant and only said that she wished to leave the entertainment industry.

However, on May 9th, 2018, Minhwan confirmed that Yulhee is actually pregnant through a posting on FT Island’s fan cafe. In the post, he wrote a letter in which he wants to let the fans know first about this news before anyone else. In addition to the confirmation of Yulhee’s pregnancy, he also announced the date of the couple’s wedding ceremony, which was planned for October 19th.

Kim Yulhee

Currently, Yulhee and Minhwan are starring in KBS’ reality show called Mr. House Husband. In a recent broadcast of the show, the couple was shown celebrating their son, Jaeyul’s first birthday. The couple invited family and their friends to attend the party, including FT Island’s Lee Hong-ki and Lee Jae-jin.

During the party, the MC held a little game where the guests had to guess facts about Jaeyul. For one of the questions, Lee Hong-ki guessed correctly and later introduced himself as Jaeyul’s uncle who has a relationship with him that’s thicker than blood. After he said that, the MC almost made Lee Hong-ki promise to pay the tuition for Jaeyul’s college, but when he realized he quickly said with laughter that he will pay for the first quarter of his tuition.

For the second question, Lee Jae-jin made a correct guess and also asked with a similar question, but this time for Jaeyul’s second semester of college. In the end, he just gave up and only nodded to the question, which made him earn applause from the other guests.

That was all the information about the wife of FT Island’s Minhwan and ex-member of LABOUM, Yulhee. What do you think about her?
