FT Island's Choi Min-hwan and LABOUM's Yulhee announce divorce after 5 years of marriage

AKP STAFF

In a surprising announcement on December 4th, Choi Min Hwan of F.T. Island and Yulhee, formerly of LABOUM, revealed that they have decided to part ways after five years of marriage. Both artists shared the news on their respective social media accounts.

Choi Min-hwan expressed, "After lengthy discussions, our couple decided to conclude our marriage. We appreciate the support from everyone who has followed and cheered for our decision to start a family at a young age. I am grateful to our family, team members, and fans for their support. I apologize sincerely. I will do my best as a father to ensure that our children do not carry any emotional scars."

On the same day, Yulhee stated, "After much time, effort, and conversation, we, as a couple, have decided to support each other on our respective paths. Although our journey as a married couple ends here, as parents to our children, it does not. We both commit to doing our best to care for and communicate with our children."

Yulhee further explained, "After careful consideration, we have decided that it is best for the children to continue living in the familiar space they have known. Currently, the children are being cared for by both of us to minimize practical and psychological disruptions. I am making an effort to spend time with the children regularly, ensuring that the absence of a mother is not keenly felt."

Choi Min-hwan and Yulhee, who got married in 2018 and have a son and twin daughters, are currently undergoing divorce settlement procedures, with Choi Min-hwan agreed to have custody of the three children.

Choi Min-hwan's statement: 

"Hello, this is Min-hwan. It's been a while since I greeted you, and though the message is not light, I cautiously share this difficult decision with you. After much consideration, our couple has decided to end our marriage. We appreciate your support for our decision to start a family at a young age, and we apologize sincerely to everyone—our family, team members, and fans. I will do my best as a father to prevent our children from experiencing emotional distress. We hope to bring you good news again. Thank you."

Yulhee's statement: 

"Hello, this is Yulhee. Today, I have to share a somewhat heavy story with you. It's not a pleasant feeling, but I wanted to convey it directly to those who have supported and loved us. After a lot of time, effort, and conversation, our couple has decided to support each other on our individual paths. While the path as a married couple ends here, our roles as parents to our children continue. We are both doing our best to care for and communicate with our children. Currently, after much thought, we have decided that it is best for the children to stay in the familiar space they have known. Both of us are involved in parenting to minimize practical and psychological disruptions, and I, too, spend time with the children regularly to make sure the absence of a mother is not strongly felt. We have made this challenging decision for our happiness, and we hope you can watch over us with warm eyes. Despite the sudden and bewildering news, we appreciate your warm support. It's getting very cold these days, so I hope you have a warm day. Thank you for reading this lengthy message."

Those first five years:

❥ in child development, are the most crucial

❥ in marriage, are the most difficult

❥ and like a small business, marriage is most prone for failure.

They seemed fine whenever I watch her YT vlogs. I am also a little surprised that Minhwan is to have custody instead of Yulhee. I wish them all the best and their future endeavors. Also hope the kids grow healthy and happy. I do appreciate that they are very willing to share time to take care of the kids. Divorce is hard for everyone.
