A Korea ladies magazine entitled Woman Senses stated in their November Issue that Jae Hee has a secret life where he’s married to a non celebrity woman, and has a young son. His agency confirmed it on October 23, 2012. They said that Jae Hee had been married to that woman since 2010. He didn’t revealed his marriage not because he was embarrassed or trying to hide his family, but because he wants his family to be able to live a normal life.

According to the magazine, little is known about Jae Hee’s secret wife except that she works at a hospital in Seoul and is known to have a beautiful appearance. The couple chose to move out of Gangnam and into the outskirts of Seoul. Jae Hee’s mother helps take care of their son. Hopefully, Jae Hee’s family will have as many years living cozily as they go through life together.
