The most shocking entertainment news of 2011 was the discovery of rock star Seo Taiji's secret marriage to actress Lee Ji-ah ("ATHENA", 2011) 14 years ago. The marriage became public after Lee filed a lawsuit for alimony and division of property in January.
Seo's fans felt betrayed as the 39-year-old has flatly denied speculation that he was married and joked that he's "married to music".
Lee demanded 5 billion won ($4.33 million) for division of property and 500 million won in alimony from Seo after they failed to reach a divorce settlement.
According to Lee's legal representative, the whole process caused Lee and the people around her so much pain after it became public that she dropped the suit. The two negotiated a settlement in July.
Before the marriage topped the entertainment headlines, Lee was spotted with actor Jeong Woo-seong in Paris in March. The two admitted to being lovers at the time.
