Model Seo Jung Hee recently confessed that she was living like a hostage during her 32 years of marriage with former comedian and current priest, Seo Se Won.
On March 12th, Seo Se Won went through his fourth hearing at Seoul Central District Court for alleged domestic violence against his wife. In May of last year, investigations began when Seo Jung Hee first sued her husband for violence towards her in the parking lot of their home and the two have been in and out of the court since then.
Seo Jung Hee stood as a witness on the fourth hearing and spoke up openly about their marriage.
She confessed, “I met my husband for the first time when I was 19, which led to a series of events that I did not consent to and became married within two months. Since then, I have been like a hostage in the marriage for over 32 years.”
She continued, “I was beaten by Seo Se Won almost every day for the last 32 years. I was also choked to a point that my tongue and eyes were popping out.” Seo Jung Hee added that her life felt threatened during these series of events.
Seo Jung Hee also stated that she believed her husband would change after he became a priest but in fact his violent actions became worse. She confessed, “I was enduring through the marriage and did not consider a divorce because I was scared of my husband.”
The court decided to hold another round of trial on April 21st.
