Jung Ho-young was born in 1951, and received a master’s degree in engineering at the University of Illinois. Jong Ho-young once served as the head of the new business division of the Hyundai Group. He is currently the chairman of Raycom Korea, a company that develops and produces military and weapon-related equipment, such as military radar, special electronics equipment, wireless telephones, computer network communication equipment, etc.

Lee Young-ae gave birth to the twins, Jung Seung-bin and Jung Seung-kwon in 2011.
