YouTuber Aori (real name Kim Min Young) released a video in which she revealed her former husband, Seo Ju Won, had cheated on her multiple times.
On January 11, Aori released a YouTube video titled, “I Will Tell You The Things That Until Now I Haven’t Been Able To.”
In the video, Aori revealed the reason she divorced her former husband, Seo Ju Won, stating that her husband had cheated on her multiple times and had asked for a large amount of money in the divorce.
I found out he had cheated on me and had to watch him with multiple women, and I learned that everyone knew about this except me. I felt like I was an idiot. He asked for a divorce while asking for a large amount of money as a settlement, and so I had to defend myself (in court). I had to defend my company and often asked myself how long he had been planning for this.
Aori also spoke on a viral Instagram post Seo Ju Won had posted in May of 2022 in which he seemed to attack Aori, to who he was still married at the time. The post hinted at a court battle, which many took as evidence of the couple’s estrangement.
Now it seems I have to fight you. I thought you would take accountability in the end, but you found a way to avoid it. Remember when I said that a trial is an evidence fight and that you shouldn’t leave traces? So don’t leave any. You’ve already left so much.

Regarding the post, at the time, Aori denied that it was aimed at her, telling a news outlet, “It was nothing like that.” In the video released on January 11, Aori admitted that she couldn’t help but wonder if the post was indeed for her.
I have been faithful throughout my marriage. But he uploaded a post making it seem like I was unfaithful, and because of that, I was labeled a ‘cheater,’ which made me suffer a lot. I still don’t understand why he posted that, and I don’t understand what he meant by it.

Aori then revealed that she had helped Seo Ju Won financially throughout their marriage and that, despite this, her former husband had asked for a large sum of money in the divorce.
The most I received for my emotional suffering was a couple of ₩10.0 million KRW (about $8,050 USD) at most. Splitting the assets was a whole different story. They said the one who had more money had to give more money. I felt I had already supported him enough financially throughout our marriage, but he still asked for a large sum of money.
Aori then finished her video by stating that the divorce was finalized in October of last year. Aori assured fans that although it was difficult at first, she feels she has gotten stronger since the divorce and will continue to work towards becoming a happier, more fulfilled version of herself.
Now I am a divorcee. The label seemed like it was a burden at first and I was afraid, and couldn’t muster the courage. However, after many battles in the past year, I feel that (the divorce) has become a new foundation. I will use the foundation to become a better version of myself. My heart flutters when I think of living ‘Aori’s Life Part 2’, and I will work on being happy.
Aori is a popular YouTuber with over 600K subscribers. She married Seo Ju Won, who is best known as a contestant on the dating show Heart Signal. The couple married in 2018.
On January 11, reports that Aori had filed for divorce as well as a separate lawsuit against an alleged mistress of Seo Ju Won went viral. Seo Ju Won’s representative later clarified that the couple had actually gotten divorced in 2022.
