They both met for the first time in 2006 after being introduced through an acquaintance. Then, they confirmed their relationship and briefly dated. They resumed their relationship again in 2012. Finally, in 2013, they became married on August 10, 2013, at Grand Hyatt Seoul with about 900 guests and 100 reporters in attendance. The wedding was hosted by actor Lee Bum Soo and comedian Shin Dong Yeop. Singer Lena Park and hip-hop group Dynamic Duo were the wedding singers. The couple’s 12-year age gap didn’t become an obstacle in their relationship.
At the press conference before the ceremony, the couple was asked by journalists about their plan for children. Lee Byung Hun answered that they haven’t talked about a number but he’d feel grateful for anything. Rumors said that Lee Min Jung was already pregnant, but both sides denied this.
In January 2015, Lee Min Jung was reported pregnant. When the news was released, Lee Min Jung was 27 weeks pregnant. Her agency was cautious to confirm her pregnancy because of Lee Byung Hun’s legal battle against two girls that were charged with blackmail. In the press release, Lee Min Jung shared her thoughts.
“I had a lot of worries, but I will do my best to keep my family,” said Lee Min Jung.
3 months later, Lee Min Jung gave birth to a son on March 31, 2015, at a hospital in Seoul. Both agencies confirmed this news and said that the baby and the mother were healthy.
