While it was revealed that Jeon Cheong-jo, the remarriage partner of former national fencing team member Nam Hyun-hee온라인카지노, was a former equestrian athlete, the Korea Equestrian Association said, “We cannot confirm this.”
Park Seo-young, president of the Korean Equestrian Association, wrote on her Instagram on the 24th, “The Korean Equestrian Association cannot confirm whether the celebrity who appeared in the news due to her recent marriage rumors was really an equestrian athlete.”
She continued, “Apart from that, if there is anyone who wants to become an equestrian for the sake of the concept, please take this opportunity to sponsor the equestrian association,” and added, “You who sponsor are true equestrians.”
In an interview with the media outlet Women’s Chosun the day before, Nam Hyun-hee announced the news of her remarriage to Jeon, a businessman 15 years younger than her.
She introduced Jeon as the third generation of her chaebol family and said that she was born in the United States and that she has lived in the United States for a long time and that she majored in horse riding in New York.
She was an equestrian during her teenage years when Jeon suffered a serious injury that forced her to retire at age 19. She later helped her manage the business as an executive at a global IT company, and currently runs an arts, physical education, psychology and etiquette training center for her children in Korea, the media explained.
Jeon also said in an interview with Sports Chosun, “She first rode her horse at a local equestrian center in Korea, and when she was 14, she started riding in Korea and rode back and forth between Korea and the United States. “She rode hard until she was 19, but unfortunately her career ended when she tore the cartilage valve in her knee,” she said.
After this information was reported, various suspicions were raised regarding Mr. Jeon’s past activities.
In response to this, Nam Hyun-hee said on Instagram that day, “We plan to take strong action if false facts are spread due to posts containing false, malicious, or false content through recently reported articles.”
Nam Hyun-hee married former national cycling team member Gong Hyo-seok in 2011, and she had one daughter, but they divorced after 12 years together.
