Where Is She Now? The YG Entertainment Actress Who Got Married In Total Secrecy

She’s been through some changes since getting married.

Due to the success of the 2002 Korean drama Winter Sonata, twenty-seven-year-old actress Choi Ji Woo gained fame and received numerous roles afterward.

During one of those roles, Air City, Choi Ji Woo publicly dated her co-star Lee Jin Wook. Because they separated due to the attention on their relationship, Choi Ji Woo vowed never to date publicly again. The YG Entertainment actress stuck to her words.

I don’t mind if the guy works in the entertainment industry, but I never want to go public with my relationship again.

Choi Ji Woo became a mother at forty-five, safely giving birth to a healthy daughter in 2020. Despite the happy news and their attempts at privacy, the couple couldn’t escape negative attention.

In 2021, a controversial YouTube channel claimed to discover the identity of Choi Ji Woo’s husband and alleged that he was cheating on her. They later apologized for revealing the identity of Choi Ji Woo’s husband and invading the couple’s privacy—which they have worked hard to maintain over the years.

Choi Ji Woo’s husband is the representative of an application company called O2O. He is nine years younger than her.

She has chosen to keep the identity of her husband private so that his company would not be subject to the burden of preconceived notions.

Despite that situation, the couple has continued to live their lives. While Choi Ji Woo’s husband has remained a mystery, the actress is happy to show a bit of her daughter on her Instagram.
