Seoul (The Korea Herald/Asia News Network) - South Korean actress Lee Min Jung, the wife of actor Lee Byung Hun, is currently staying at her parents' home, after her husband was involved in a scandal with two young women, the Korean media reported today.

The actress, who stayed in Paris for two weeks, returned to Korea on Tuesday. She headed to her parents' home in Gangnam, southern Seoul, instead of going back to the home she shares with her husband after shooting a television commercial.

"Lee came back to Korea to attend her friend's wedding. It would be a lie if she said she wasn't hurt by the incident," said a source close to the actress.

"She wanted to stay out of the public eye."

Her every move has been under the spotlight after her 44-year-old husband's scandal.

Earlier this month, K-pop girl group Glam's Dahee, 20, and model Lee Ji Yeon, 25, threatened to disclose a video of a lewd conversation involving the three unless the actor gave them 5 billion won (S$6 million).

The incident went viral after the actor reported the case to the police.

The two women were arrested on charges of attempted blackmail on Sept 1 and sent to the prosecution.
