Ryu Si Won′s Wife Wants Full Custody Of Daughter
Actor Ryu Si Won and his wife are getting a divorce less than two years into their marriage. In addition, his wife Ms. Cho is seeking custody of their daughter.
On April 10, a rep from Ms. Cho’s legal team talked with enews through a phone conversation and said, “Mr. Ryu Si Won’s wife is seeking custody of their child.”
Ryu and his wife married in October 2010 and had their first daughter just three months into the marriage. On March 22, however, Ryu Si Won’s wife, Miss Cho, filed for divorce with the Seoul Family Court and the child custody battle appears to be yet another issue in their divorce proceedings.
Dismissing the rumors floating around about Ms. Cho’s hefty alimony request, the rep added, "Generally, the law requires celebrities to pay more alimony. Moreover, the alimony we requested was a reasonable amount.”
However, Ryu remained steadfast and said, “If we can discuss our differences in a mature manner it may still be possible to avoid getting a divorce,” drawing the public’s interest as to which course of action the two will take.
Meanwhile, Ryu’s agency R’s Company said through its official press release, “Judging by Ryu’s love for his daughter, Ryu will do everything in his power to protect his family during this process.” Unfortunately, Ryu’s wish appears to be in conflict with his wife’s desire for sole custody of their daughter.
The two met through an acquaintance in 2009 and saw each other for a year before tying the knot in October 2010. After the birth of their first daughter just three months into their marriage, Ryu Si Won showed his love for his daughter, boasting that she looked exactly like him. As such, their sudden divorce proceedings are all the more shocking.
