The actress Lee Young-ae
, who shocked fans with her secret marriage to a businessman last week, is expected back in Seoul this weekend. Lee's parents returned to Korea last Saturday, four days after Lee's wedding at the Kahala Hotel and Resort in Hawaii on Monday last week.
Because the star actress is starting her doctoral studies at Hanyang University's Graduate School of Theater and Cinema this semester and her class begins in the second week of September, so she is expected to arrive in Seoul this weekend.
It remains to be seen whether Lee will make an official statement on her marriage and provide answers to the many questions the public has. The news was announced by her lawyers rather than her agency, warning against invasions of her privacy, and since then she has avoided contact with the public.
In a press release immediately after the marriage, Lee said, "I send my sincere gratitude to my fans and colleagues who have shown so much love and support, and I will see you again in the near future", leaving room for the a press conference on arrival.
