The third generation of the Lee family includes famous names in Korean tycoon circles, including elder brother Lee Jae Yong and three talented sisters Lee Boo Jin, Lee Seo Hyun and Lee Yoon Hyung. While the family's only "warm boy" has for years sat his "crown prince", inheriting his father's career – Samsung Lee Kun Hee, the three younger sisters have a life full of ups and downs and waves. wind.
The Lee family was warm during the day …
Perhaps the most contradictory one is President Lee's second daughter, who is considered the "strongest woman" with the most similar character and business style to her father. On the contrary, Yoon Hyung is the youngest and rebellious younger sister, but ends up killing her life because of her forbidden love.
Now only 3 powerful brothers are left
The second child – the female powerful Lee Boo Jin
While the brother is strongly backed to succeed the successor to Samsung, once studying at Harvard's prestigious school, the younger sister, 2-year-old Lee Boo Jin, also becomes a "queen" of the hotel industry. Graduating from Yonsei University when he was 21 years old, Boo Jin spent all 20 years later serving the Samsung Group subsidiary – Shilla hotel chain.
In just 10 years in power, Lee Boo Jin has brought Shilla to the yearly sales of 3,000 billion won, the highest in history. Shares of this hotel chain doubled under the female president and helped Korea get Louis Vuitton duty-free shop at the first airport.
Thanks to the successes with Shilla, the fortune that the Lee-owned woman has surpassed $ 3.3 billion, becoming one of the richest billionaires in Korea. Moreover, compared to his Western-style leader, Lee Boo Jin is perceived to have the same appearance, personality and operating style as his powerful father. Since then, the media did not regret calling her "Little Lee Kun Hee".
Especially in the spring of 2017, Lee Boo Jin has come close to the successor of Samsung Group despite being in a reluctant mood. In February of that year, his brother Lee Jae Yong was arrested, his father Lee Kun Hee also entered the investigation area due to suspicion of criminal activity involving the deposed President Park Geun Hye.
Later, the incident also passed "quiet waves", his brother continued to steer the Samsung battleship, Boo Jin's sister was stable on the chair of Shilla. But no one can forget how powerful Lee Boo Jin was supported by Samsung's "gods" when the empire showed signs of wavering.
Lee Boo Jin – the girl who has the most resemblance to President Lee
That's great in the market, but Lee Boo Jin has an unhappy marriage. She met her husband Im Woo Jae in 1999 when he was working at Samsung C&T IT department. After many struggles, overcoming the harsh opposition of the family, they can be married.
However, during the first 7 years after the wedding, they lived apart because of the nature of their work, Woo Jae was sent to the United States to study. As married couples have recently met crisis, they contradict and decided to sign a divorce application in October 2013. The divorce has raised a lot of buzz around the words "love" and "money", creating waves in the Lee family for a long time. Up to now, Lee Boo Jin has been lonely and alone. It is known that the wife won the couple's sole custody of the son in 2017 after spending a huge amount of $ 7.6 million.
After a lot of hard work, Lee Boo Jin could not go with her husband to the end of marriage
The third child – Lee Seo Hyun, is wealthy and has an unbelievably smooth love
Inferior compared to the brother who was in charge of the family and the overly talented sister, Lee Seo Hyun lived a somewhat simpler life. However, it is also Lee's second daughter who owns enough "combos" of love, money and power! She is known for her nearly 20-year-old full-time marriage alongside her talented husband and four children.
As a child, Lee Seo Hyun expressed his love for the fashion industry. Graduating from Seoul Art University, she left for New York to study design major before returning to join the family group. Seo Hyun is currently the Chairman of the fashion department of Samsung C&T Group, having great merit in bringing luxury fashion brands to widely distributed in his home town. In 2014, Lee Seo Hyun was the only Korean who reached the top of the richest young billionaires in the world.

Lee Seo Hyun is also favorable on love. Her husband is Kim Jae Yeol, the youngest son of the President of DongA Ilbo Group, one of Korea's leading newspapers. Reportedly, Kim Jae Yeol is a high school friend of Jae Yong's brother. Thus, before having a chance to meet, the young Kim had heard a lot of things about Samsung's daughter.
The couple "boys and girls" are admirable of Samsung
At the time when President Lee went to the US to treat illness, Kim Jae Yeol came to visit his best friend's father, from there to meet Seo Hyun and hit "thunder love". After a period of love, the couple moved to marriage in 2000 under the agreement of their families. Currently, Kim Jae Yeol also participates in running his wife's family company. Not only high school, he was also very skillful in diplomacy, causing President Lee Kun Hee to be extremely pleased and assured of the talented bridegroom.
The fourth child – Lee Yoon Hyung with a tragic fate
Lee Yoon Hyung was also the wine daughter of President Lee, stepping into the top of the richest women in the land of kimchi. Different from the secretive lifestyle of most family members, Lee Yoon Hyung is an open and personality girl. She loves art and has a passion for large displacement racing cars. On the social network, the young lady did not hesitate to share about the luxurious life, gradually giving her a strong fan base.

Lee Yoon Hyung graduated from Ehwa Women's University, majoring in French. When she was a student, she fell in love with a common-born boy. But when expressing his desire to approach this man, Yoon Hyung was fiercely opposed by his family due to the different circumstances of the two.
Unable to argue with his parents, the couple had to break up in tears, then Lee Yoon Hyung went to New York to study in November 2005. Thoughts of living far away from home, Yoon Hyung will escape from the mentoring circle, enjoying free life. But no, tragedy came only 11 days later: the lady had hanged herself!
After the shocking death, everyone can understand somewhat of Yoon Hyung's miserable life. On the outside, it seems to be a very desirable life when the bodyguards pick up and serve, but according to the protection of the building, Lady Lee often locked herself in four solitary walls. This made the young girl fall into depression in a short time in the United States, not to rule out the cause of the illness from the pain of resentment because of the forbidden love affair.
Lee Yoon Hyung's funeral was held quietly with the participation of his older brother and two sisters. Lee Yoon Hyung's parents were also present in New York but did not come to see her daughter because according to Korean culture, the births did not attend their funeral if they died but were unmarried.
Sadly after the death of the youngest daughter, the flow of life still flows, the Samsung family still occupies the public's interest, but for a long time, the name Lee Yoon Hyung has sunk into oblivion.
Together with three sisters born under the rich roof to riches, it is impossible to expect them to have such a different life. It was a part of the girls who could not compete for the absolute power of Samsung, even the love line also had the power to make money difficult. If the gap between the rich and the poor is not too big, perhaps Lee Yoon Hyung did not commit suicide or Lee Boo Jin did not have to break up loudly.
After all, the chance of finding the happiness of Lee's three sisters is more than 30%, when the full-time member only calls his name correctly Lee Seo Hyun? Perhaps in the Korean chaebol family, an overly talented woman like Boo Jin who is rebellious like Yoon Hyung will be "more harmful than good."
