Who is Lee Da-in? Drama list explored as Lee Seung-gi announces marriage
On February 7, actor Lee Seung-gi took to his personal Instagram account to announce that he will be marrying long-time girlfriend and actress Lee Da-in.
For the unversed, Lee Da-in is the daughter of actress Kyeon Mi-ri. She got her last name from her stepfather, Lee Hong-heon, who adopted her and her sister, Lee Yu-bi, also an actress, after marrying their mother in 1998.
Lee Seung-gi and Lee Da-in first confirmed their relationship in May 2021. Since then, the couple has been going steady and has maintained a low profile in public. Now, in a handwritten letter shared on social media, they have announced that they are engaged to be married on April 7 of this year.
Lee Da-in has been in a relationship with Lee Seung-gi since 2020, according to Dispatch
On May 24, 2021, the Korean media outlet Dispatch revealed that actors Lee Seung-gi and Lee Da-in were spotted on an outdoor date in Gangwon Province in the late fall of 2020. The couple were spotted entering and exiting a local bank at different times.
They then met Lee Seung-gi’s grandmother in Gokcho. It is believed that the couple have been in a relationship since 2020, and their common love for golf and acting got them together. Industry insiders were already aware of their relationship and that Lee Seung-gi spent his free time with her.
Their respective agencies also confirmed that they had been dating since 2020. On February 7, Lee Seung-gi shared in a handwritten letter that they are getting married on April 7 of this year and intend to live the rest of their lives together as a married couple.
He disclosed that she is a warm and loving person, and he wants to keep her by his side forever. He hopes that fans will continue to shower their love and blessings upon the couple.
Lee Da-in is the daughter of actors Kyeon Mi-ri and Im Young-gyu, who divorced a year after she was born.
She made her acting debut in 2014 with the drama Twenty Years Old and has since appeared in Entourage, Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth, My Golden Life, Come and Hug Me, Doctor Prisoner, Alice, and is set to star in Lovers this year.
Their relationship has gone through its share of gossip and media intervention. A couple of months after confirming their relationship, it was reported that they had broken up. Lee Seung-gi, on the other hand, denied the breakup rumors, stating that they are still very much together.
While most fans are happy with the news of their marriage, some Korean fans are skeptical because of her family’s public image. The Alice actress' stepfather, Lee Hong-heon, was charged with stock manipulation and insider trading.
This caused many families to either go bankrupt or suffer major financial losses. Koreans are not fond of the Lee family’s public image and extravagant lifestyle.
After news of their relationship was made public, Lee Seung-gi’s fans had sent a protest truck urging him to end his relationship with the actress due to her stepfather’s financial fraud.
