Hwang Jung Eum has shared an apology for her recent Instagram posts.

On April 3, Hwang Jung Eum posted screenshots of a non-celebrity’s (hereafter referred to as “A”) personal Instagram posts along with the caption, “Ugly girl, please marry Young Don (referring to Hwang Jung Eum’s husband Lee Young Don). Can’t he just divorce me and go to Bangkok?” She also wrote, “Will you please marry my husband? There is only one reason why I am posting this here. Young Don, who ran away from home, please divorce me before you go to Thailand.”

Hwang Jung Eum’s posts were targeting “A,” accusing her of being the adulteress of her husband Lee Young Don. Although Hwang Jung Eum soon deleted her posts, the posts quickly spread on social media.

On April 4, “A” took to her Instagram, claiming, “I am not the adulteress of Lee Young Don whom Hwang Jung Eum is speaking of. I had no idea who Lee Young Don is, and he probably doesn’t even know about my existence either.” “A” also wrote, “I don’t usually watch ‘SNL (Saturday Night Live),’ but this time, I watched Hwang Jung Eum’s episode from beginning to end and supported her. Hwang Jung Eum, please check [this post],” tagging Hwang Jung Eum’s Instagram account.

Later that day, Hwang Jung Eum shared an apology on her Instagram, admitting that there was a misunderstanding about her previous posts. Read Hwang Jung Eum’s apology below:


There was a misunderstanding while I was sorting out my personal issues.

I sincerely apologize for causing harm to the non-celebrity concerned and those around them by posting their Instagram posts.

I have decided to write here again to correct the situation.

I have also contacted the person who was harmed to apologize personally.

I should have distinguished public and personal matters clearly in a space that many people can see. I apologize for causing fatigue to the public by making the wrong decision in a confused emotional state.

I will pay careful attention.

Hwang Jung Eum married Lee Young Don, a businessman and former professional golfer, in 2016, and they welcomed their first son in August 2017. She filed for divorce in September 2020, but the couple resolved their differences during mediation and reunited in July 2021. The following year, they gave birth to their second son.

Recently in February 2024, Hwang Jung Eum’s agency released an official statement, announcing, “After much deliberation, Hwang Jung Eum decided that it is no longer possible to maintain her marriage and is in the process of filing for divorce.”
