Recently, the special relationship between actor Lee Byung-hun and the chairman of the cheebol family has been re-examined.

Few people know about the relationship between the actor Lee Byung-hunwho is adored for his amazing acting skills, and former Daewoo Group president Kim Woo-joong.

According to channel A “Rumor Has It”, Lee Byung-hun became the adopted son of Daewoo Group CEO Kim Woo-joong in 1995, forming a special relationship.

This is the story. Former CEO Kim Woo-joong and Mrs. Jung Hee-ja had three sons and one daughter. However, the eldest son and future successor of the Daewoo Group, Kim Seon-jae, died in a car accident at the age of 24.

Former CEO Kim Woo-joong and his wife Jung Hee-ja were deeply saddened by the sudden death of their son. Ms. Jeong Hee-ja even founded the Seon-jae Art Center, named after her son, to honor his soul.

Four years after the death of her son, Mrs. Jung accidentally discovered aspiring actor Lee Byung-hun who looks exactly like her son on TV. At that time, Mrs. Jung asked Yoo In-chon, a former Daewoo Electronics CF model, to arrange a meeting for her and Lee Byung-hun.

At the meeting, Mrs. Jung suggested that Lee Byung-hun became her adopted son.

Lee Byung-hun was very surprised at first at the adoption suggestion, but gladly accepted the offer at the meeting, as he believed that all mothers in the world would feel the same if they had been found in her circumstances.

Later Lee Byung-hun worked as a model for Daewoo Motors Tico. When the “5 billion won” blackmail scandal broke out, the actor reportedly flew to the US and apologized to former CEO Lee Woo-joong and his wife.

According to reports from the time, Lee Byung-hun even knelt down and bowed to apologize to a couple of CEOs.

Lee Byung-hun apologized to Ms Jung, “Mom, I have committed a grave sin. I’m so sorry to be causing you trouble “. Mrs. Jung replied: “What have you done wrong to me? Be kinder to your wife.

Lee Byung-hun continues this long relationship as he frequently visits the morgue of former CEO Kim Woo-joong, who died on December 9, 2019 of chronic illness.
