The wife of veteran K-pop artist Eli (of the group U-Kiss), Ji Yeon-soo has finally opened up about the heartbreaking ordeal that she faced while she was still married to the Korean-American entertainer. Yeon-soo, model by profession, married Eli of U-Kiss legally in 2014 and socially in July 2017. The couple also had a child Min-soo. In a shocking new interview, Ji Yeon-soo has shared that their marriage was only happy for public image and faked their merry life for the television.
On March 29, 2021, Ji Yeon Soo made her appearance in the show ‘Kang Ho Dong’s Rice Heart’ where she opened up about how everything in the couple’s marriage went downhill. She shared that the duo decided to go to the US after they stopped receiving projects in South Korea. But in order to get Visa, Yeon-soo needed some documents which she had in South Korea, so she came back alone to get it. While she was in South Korea, Eli broke the news of separation which shocked her initially as she desperately tried to hold on to hope and reconcile. But she said at the end, she had to give up and now may resort to legal means to get the divorce.

She also revealed that after Eli informed her of separation, she remained in South Korea while her son was with Eli for six months. The model, currently unemployed, shared that she also felt like taking her own life and reached the rooftop of the 20th floor of a building and stood at the edge.

Thank you so much for marrying me! Even though it was difficult for us to get here, we’ll only have happy days from now on! I love you dear, I love you dear, we’re finally having a wedding ceremony.”
