As to the reason why, the actress opened up, “For ten years after marriage, I didn’t want children, and when I did, I got pregnant right away, thankfully.” The actress further described her pregnancy, “I got pregnant around January, and when it came to August, the child had problems breathing, and I lost my child.”
The actress discussed her hard time from the loss of her child. The actress stated, “I don’t remember ever walking when I was pregnant with my first child.” Because of the experience, I realize how precious children are.”
After losing her child, the actress explained she chose to become pregnant via In Vitro Fertilization. She and her husband Yeon Jung Hoon got married in 2005 and are proud parents of two children.
