Therefore, the news of Yulhee’s divorce surprised many people.


The custody of the three children will be held by Choi Min-hwan, not Yul-hee. In response, Yul-hee explained about the custody, saying, “I decided that it is right for the kids to stay in the space where they have lived so far so that they do not face realistic problems and psychological anxiety.”
