Korean singer to marry actress 16 years his junior
by Julie Jackson

The iconic '90s singer and musician Seo Taiji announced on Wednesday his engagement to actress Lee Eun-sung, who is 16 years his junior.

Seo Taiji, 41, and Lee, 24, reportedly met in 2008 when she appeared in one of the singer's music video. They revealed they began dating a year later and are currently living together with his parents in his newly built house in Pyeongchang-dong, Seoul.

Seo Taiji made the announcement on his official website and claimed that he been waiting a long time and was happy that he had finally found "the one."

"I've liked his music for a long-time but I never thought I would get a chance to meet him in person," Lee stated through her agency. "While I was on the film set of his music video, I saw the way Seo Taiji treated his colleagues and other staff members and I just thought to myself, 'He's a decent guy.'"

This is set to be Seo Taiji's second marriage. The star shocked the nation two years ago when his secret marriage to actress Lee Ji-ah and their subsequent divorce were uncovered.
