Oh boy, that kid’s face says it all, doesn’t it? Incheon airport was a frenzy yesterday as A-list but scandal prone actor Lee Byung Hun returned to Korea with his pregnant wifey actress Lee Min Jung in tow. The two have spent the last two months in the US likely to lay low as the legal proceedings wrapped in the blackmail case where Lee Byung Hun was extorted by two young aspiring starlets. Now that Lee Min Jung is about two months away from giving birth the couple have returned to Korea for the remainder of her pregnancy.
The media frenzy at the airport was no joke, which leads me to wonder who told the press beforehand they were coming back that day. The expressions say it all, and not just of the random kid in the picture above staring in “da fuq is this?” shock at the proceedings. Lee Min Jung’s “I don’t give a fuck bitch face” is pretty epic while Lee Byung Hun looked like he hadn’t slept or shaven for a few days, either in severe agony or helping the apology tableau look more authentic, take your pick. After whisking the unamused wifey away to the waiting car, Lee Byung Hun returned to directly address the media and gave his first direct apology to the Korean public for his actions in this entire mess.
Lee Byung Hun’s public apology:
“I am sorry for not giving an apology earlier. As the public figure I have made many people uncomfortable and disappointed.Because all problems started from me, I think I should shoulder all the criticisms myself. I know what part of what happened made people disappointed in me because of my foolishness. So much time has passed since then. I apologize to all who have been hurt by me and I am reflecting on what I have done. I will continue to reflect on what I’ve done. I have a huge debt to my family that cannot be repaid over my life time, and have been reproached for this also. I will use this place to apologize to everyone once again. I am sorry.”
