Couple Lee Byung Hun – Lee Min Jung and couple Oh Sang Jin – Kim So Young are back to childrearing again after a long time
Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung are expecting their second child after 8 years, while Oh Sang Jin and Kim So Young are expecting their second child after 5 years.
Oh Sang Jin and Kim So Young announced Kim So Young’s second pregnancy through the Sep 11th broadcast of SBS’ “Same Bed, Different Dreams 2 – You Are My Destiny”. A preview video showed them getting an ultrasound at the obstetrics clinic. On that day’s broadcast, they mentioned that Kim So Young was in her 15th week of pregnancy.
The couple got married in 2017 and welcomed their first daughter two years later in 2019. After giving birth, Kim So Young continued to work in broadcasting and business, while Oh Sang Jin focused on raising their daughter. They occasionally shared their daily life on SNS.
Most importantly, the couple previously stated that they had no plans for a second child. They even disposed of baby blankets. However, their thoughts changed within just six months. Last August, on “Same Bed, Different Dreams 2 – You Are My Destiny”, they mentioned that they were planning for a second child, expressing the desire to experience raising another adorable child and the benefits of having siblings. This change in stance drew attention.
A month after the broadcast, they announced Kim So Young’s second pregnancy. While getting an ultrasound, Oh Sang Jin playfully said, “Look at the nose“, already showing excitement about becoming a father for the second time.
Following the broadcast, Kim So Young interacted with fans on Sep 13th and revealed that the second child’s nickname is Watson. She mentioned that it’s difficult to put into words the exact reason for deciding to have a second child and promised to share more about it on next week’s “Same Bed, Different Dreams 2 – You Are My Destiny” broadcast.
Actor Lee Byung Hun and actress Lee Min Jung are also expecting a newborn after 8 years. Lee Min Jung’s agency officially confirmed her pregnancy last month.
Specific details about the pregnant age and the due date have not been disclosed. Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung tied the knot in August 2013 after a year of public dating. They welcomed their first son in 2015 and are now expecting their second child after 8 years.
Lee Byung Hun (born in 1970) will become a father again at the age of 53, and there is a growing interest in whether it will be a daughter or a son. Especially with Lee Min Jung’s close friend Son Ye Jin and her husband Hyun Bin recently having a son, netizens made amusing comments about Lee Min Jung giving birth to a daughter, suggesting she should form a mother & son-in-law relationship with Son Ye Jin’s son.
After news of the pregnancy was revealed, Lee Byung Hun appeared on tvN’s “You Quiz on the Block” last month and praised his wife, “Lee Min Jung cooks very well. She’s a great mom. She is good at playing golf. I think she’s a very talented person. She’s very friendly and humorous. She makes me laugh all the time. When people around me asked about her charms and why I married her, I said she was funny and she made me laugh a lot.” This expression of affection garnered attention.
