Former President Chun Doo-hwan’s grandson, Jeon Woo-won (27), has been informed by his elderly father, Jae Jae-kook (64), of his separation.
This was revealed on the night of the 19th in the KBS1TV current affairs program “The President and I, Jeon Woo-won and the Black Money of the Jeon Doo-hwan Family.
Jeon Woo-won, who has been apologizing on behalf of his family for the past history of former President Jeon Doo-hwan, revealed that his elderly father, Jae-guk, who was unhappy with his move, sent him a text message on his cell phone saying, “You are no longer my nephew or anything else, so don’t visit me or call me, stop taking medication and live normally and well,” severing the family ties of uncle and nephew.

In the broadcast, Jae Kook testified that he asked an acquaintance to cash in a 20 billion won bearer bond and that it took him three to four months to do so, saying, “Once upon a time, my father-in-law asked my father-in-law to keep a certain box. My husband (Jeon Jae-yong) said, ‘When I opened it (the box), it was full of keys to safe deposit boxes, and each one of them was full of bonds,'” said Choi Mo-mo, the mother of Jeon Woo-won.
Ms. Choi, who was married to Jae Yong Jae, the second son of former President Chun Doo-hwan, in 1992, caused a great shock when she said that her Yeonhee-dong home was filled with bundles of 10,000 won Gukwon, that she had secretly hidden them, and that her daughters-in-law even got together and mixed them with 10,000 won Shinwon to make bundles of money again.
Jae-yong was married three times: to Park Mo in 1987 (divorced in 1990), Choi in 1992 (divorced in 2007), and talent Park Sang-ah, with whom he has been in a common-law relationship since the late 1990s (registered in the U.S. in 2003 and in Korea since 2007).
Meanwhile, Jeon Jae-guk, the eldest son of former President Chun Doo-hwan, who had given Jeon Woo-won an isolation notice, was ordered by a court to suspend his duties as CEO of Bookplus, a book distributor he actually owns.
