Lee Sang Hwa Responds To Rumors That She’s Getting Married Because She’s Pregnant

Rumors claimed it’s a shot-gun wedding.

Multi-Olympic-medalist Lee Sang Hwa and singer Kangnam are getting married next month and there were rumors that they’re getting married because Lee Sang Hwa is pregnant.


The Couple appeared on You Are My Destiny 2, where they shut down rumors of premarital pregnancy. Lee Sang Hwa firmly claimed, “We’re not getting married because of premarital pregnancy.


She explained that she’s not pregnant and that the only reason that they’re getting married is because of their love and desire to live the rest of their lives together.

We just really love each other, and it was the first time I made the decision that I wanted to get married. We just wanted to live happily together.

— Lee Sang Hwa


She recalled why she fell deep in love with Kangnam. Lee Sang Hwa had won her 3rd medal at the olympics in 2018 but she wanted to keep skating for the next Olympics.

Lee Sang Hwa has won 2 gold medals and 1 silver medal for speed skating.


She continued to train for a year but her knee injury kept her from hitting her peak once again.

I had such a hard time last year. I won the silver medal at the Pyeongchang Olympics but I felt like I couldn’t stop there.

For 25 years, all I’ve done was skate and it’s all I know how to do. I was greedy to go further but my body wouldn’t keep up.

— Lee Sang Hwa


Kangnam saw her go through the pain and heartbreak when she realized that her body can no longer keep up with her desire to skate.

She had a very hard time. She couldn’t tell her family and kept it all to herself. I felt sad watching her like that.

— Kangnam


Lee Sang Hwa never talked to anyone about it but decided to open up to Kangnam, and he responded with the most heartfelt and sincere reply.

I couldn’t talk to anyone about it.

So I told [Kangnam] because he works in a completely different industry. But he responded to me so well. He told me it was definite that I would be feeling this way.

He told me to let it all go and that we should only live happily from now on.

He was such a big strength to me.

— Lee Sang Hwa


Ever since Kangnam helped Lee Sang Hwa realize that her future without skating was still bright as ever, she decided to “give [herself] a break with Kangnam.

After dating for a year, the couple decided to tie the knot as they focus on each other for the rest of their lives!
