Lee Seo-jin turns out to be from a royal family

2014/12/23 Source

The reason why Lee Seo-jin was called 'royal' was revealed.

TV Chosun "Great Life" discussed the background of Lee Seo-jin's family.

Lee Seo-jin is a known elite with the education, the background, looks and personality from an affluent family.

Lee Seo-jin's grandfather was the late Lee Bo-hyeong, a very influential character in the financial industry and his father was the late Lee Jae-eung, the head of a credit union. Back in the 1960s when the financial world was strong, being the president of a bank or a financial group was as good as being the president of a major firm today.

However, there was another reason why Lee Seo-jin was called 'royal'. He is the descendant of independent fighter, the late Lee Sang-ryong.

Lee Seo-jin's ancestor Lee Sang-ryong put true 'noblesse oblige' into action by giving up all of his wealth.

Lee Sang-ryong established the base of independent movement and even involved himself in state affairs. Being in state affairs was almost as good as being president.

Yoon Moon-sik said, "Lee Sang-ryong was a great person. The fact that there are nine ancestors in the same family that served for the independence of their country, makes them a royal family indeed".
