A singer and actor, Lee Seung-gi is known for his shows A Korean Odyssey, Vagabond, My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho and The King Two Hearts. Lee Da-in has starred in Hwarang and Alice among others.
But some hidden problems have suddenly risen up. After the actor made the announcement netizens reactions were explosive, given both actors’ fame and name. Lee Seung Gi has always been loved by the public and has a positive image. Frequent donations and praise from insiders have resulted in this.
On the other hand, Lee Da In is known for her beauty and acting talent, but also for being the daughter of Kyeon Mi Ri. Kyeon Mi Ri was an actress before she married a businessman, Lee Da In’s stepfather.
Unfortunately, her stepfather was charged with stock manipulation and insider trading. The matter caused the downfall of many families of stockholders, driving some to bankruptcy.
Although he is only her stepfather, they were close enough for her and her sister, Lee Yu Bi, to take up his last name officially.
Furthermore, netizens have always frowned upon the family’s extravagant lifestyle of luxury despite the scandal.
