During an interview with TVReport that took place on November 30th, highly touted Korean pianist Yiruma addressed the false rumors regarding an unhappy marriage between his in-laws, actor Kwon Sang Woo and actress Son Tae Young. He stated, "People start these rumors because they don't really know what the two are like. Kwon Sang Woo and Son Tae Young were friends before they started dating and got married. They still joke around a lot with each other, and sometimes playfully hit each other as well. People see things like that and they say that they have a rocky marriage, but it's a big misunderstanding. If these people knew them better, these rumors would never even start". Yiruma also praised his brother-in-law, saying that he was a good cook and a very loving husband stating, "Kwon Sang Woo is good to both his parents and his in-laws. He's a good cook and he even makes his own kimchi. I told him once that I thought the kimchi was delicious and even before I could finish my sentence, he brought over a bunch for us to eat. I need to be careful not to compliment his food too often. When I do, he wraps everything up and brings it over. I'm truly grateful, but I feel bad at the same time". He continued, "I spend a lot of time with that couple. We're a close knit family and we get along really well... I was born in '78, while Kwon Sang Woo was born in '76, so technically I'm two years younger than him, but I became his elder after marrying the older sister. He treats me with respect as if I really was older, and he is really good to me". Yiruma clearly remembers the day Kwon Sang Woo came home in 2008 to ask for Son Tae Young's hand in marriage. "I remember the first time he came to the house because he wanted to marry my sister-in-law. I was kind of shocked, and it was kind of interesting and cool that another celebrity was going to be a part of the family. I had heard that he was good to Son Tae Young back then, and he still is to this day. Even as a man myself, I can see that he is a considerate and loving husband". In related news, Yiruma recently released a brand new album on November 24th. It consists of edited versions of his best hits from the past 10 years. The songs are completely different from the original, however, that it feels more like a fresh album than a 'Best Of'. To celebrate his new album, Yiruma will be embarking on a nationwide tour. He will kick off the tour in Goyang on the 3rd, and will travel to Gwangju on the 4th, Suwon on the 10th, Jeonju on the 11th, Ulsan on the 18th, Daejun on the 21st, Jaeju on the 25th, Sungnam on the 30th, and wrap up in Seoul on the 31st.
