K-stars Lee Dong Gun and Jo Yoon Hee announced today that the couple has divorced, it’s mutually agreeable and Jo Yoon Hee will have primary custody of their daughter. Lee Dong Gun doesn’t have the best reputation as a bachelor in K-ent but people grow up and honestly being a husband and dad is a quick way to leave the fast life behind and embrace a newfounded sense of responsibility. I’m not saying he didn’t but the sudden divorce and lack of explanation lends itself to netizen rumor-mongering and finger pointing.
