    I'm his fan for long time & when the case come out I cannot think I will excited to watch him anymore like before. I just hope the case is the last one & he will never commited any wrongdoing anymore.  If his wife still with him, he is fortunate enough.

    he would've had 2, but his pregnant wife was so griefstricken she lost the baby. so yeah he basically killed his second child.

    Yeah, I know.. But really sucks, because I saw his family life on return of superman. His daughter is adorable. It's just really really sad. I can't believe that someone nice like him would do/say something like that. - all I can say is that you can't really know a person through tv shows.

    @lovelunaa <-- I think that it is *not* fair to speak as though it is a proven fact that UTW did cause his wife to abort a pregnancy due to stress related issues. It remains *speculation* ; but people can believe what they choose.

    i mean the timing is really uncanny, his wife's miscarriage happened in the height of the scandal.

    Just because it happened during that time does not mean that that is the reason for a miscarriage - it's speculation.

    How is it double standard when it's not the same situation ? there's a difference between being a prostitute and soliciting one.

    It's the same difference as buying drugs vs. selling it.

    one sells the other one buys -_-, that's why a drug dealer always take more time than a drug user, nothing to do with their gender.

    I love idiots trying to educate me and adding -.- like they could even have a clue... slowly now :D.. drugs are criminal offense which is purely scientifically harmful and lands an actual prison sentence. As a crime isnt even close to prostitution by nature. Now here neither are in actual jail and arent in anyways unable to film. Therefore the actual "outrage" and problem is MORAL. So again I ask, what's the difference MORALLY between selling or buying prostitution. Well there actually is a difference, big one, but its completely other way around. Lets ask it the other way, in crimes of buying or selling sex, which is the abuser and which is the abused? If we wanna attach moral outrage to this bullshit. ----- See how it works when you actually use your brain? Please tell me you understood the double standards by now.. please.

    Agreed. I'm rather modern I guess and believe it's your body and you should be allowed to sell it if you want. It's the same as using your body to work any other job in my opinion. It's just '' morally'' unacceptable which is bs. As if these bitchy people have perfect morals themselves. A single person prostituting themselves vs a married father buying a prostitute...whos the more morally wrong one there hmm.

    "oh no it's the same even tho it's not the same u idiot" -___-; SJW in a nutshell; ... I wasn't arguing about who did the worst thing morally; but did they do the same ? U answered urself : no; u want to say he deserves his career to be over like GN.A or that GN.A doesn't deserve her career to be over if his isn't, go ahead, but don't call it double standard 'cause it's not, it's a weak shortcut to explain their situation. Go ahead and insult me more, if it makes u feel better about urself idm, looks like u need it.

    Why are people getting downvoted for being honest? He cheated on his wife and she was so stressed from the public embarrassment she had a miscarriage. I pray for her and her little girl all the time, bless their hearts

    It didn't take him a long time, he was filming two movies in the US while the trial was still going. Lee Byung Hun's priorities is never the Korean cinema, he's doing there movies only if he's not getting offers in America.

    that is because hollywood don't give a shit to scandal like this, but korean ppl do care. that is why he need to delay his korean movie promotion (memories of swords???). his scandal affect movie ticket sales so much it is flop.

    at least lee byung hun is wise enough to halt all his activities in korea after his scandal, unlike uhm tae woong. even after his hiatus periode korean ppl still react negatively about him, make a jokes and parodied his scandal on national tv. obviously uhm tae woong learn nothing from lee byung hun experince, but yeah... maybe for uhm tae woong pay random women for sex and cheating from his wife is not something he need ashamed for, that is why he can easily move on and continues his activity in sk ent. industry like nothing ever happen... who knows right???
