Lee Ji-ah has dated –

  1. Seo Taiji (1997-2000) – On October 12, 1997, she got married to singer, musician, songwriter, and record producer Seo Taiji, whom she met through an acquaintance at a concert in Los Angeles, California in 1993. The couple remained secretly married and lived in the United States, moving to Atlanta and then Arizona. In the year 2000, they separated when Seo returned to Korea in the month of June for his comeback to the K-pop scene as a solo artist and Lee stayed behind in the U.S. She filed for divorce in 2006 on the grounds of irreconcilable differences due to incompatible lifestyles and personalities. The relationship became known to the media much later in 2011 when Sports Seoul broke the story on April 21, 2011, that Lee and Seo had been secretly married since 1997. Both celebrities were believed to have been single and the news leaked after hearings had been held at the Seoul Family Court (court papers used Seo and Lee’s birth names – Jeong Hyeon-cheol and Kim Sang-eun, respectively) since Lee filed a ₩5.5 billion lawsuit against Seo for alimony and division of assets. Eventually, the ex-couple reached an out-of-court settlement through mediation in July 2011, which included a non-disclosure agreement.
  2. Jung Woo-sung (2011) – Between February and May 2011, she was romantically involved with actor Jung Woo-sung, her Athena co-star.
