Lee Boo-Jin

Lee Boo-Jin was born on 1969 in Seoul, South Korea, South Korea, is Samsung C&T. Lee Boo-Jin appears to live a charmed life as the country's richest woman and the eldest daughter of Samsung Chairman Lee Kun-Hee. She's president and chief executive of Hotel Shilla, one of Seoul's top lodging and conference centers, and a big shareholder in Samsung C&T, a holding company for the Samsung empire. But she's in the middle of a messy divorce from Im Woo-Jae, who revealed in 2017 that he was her bodyguard when they met and not a Samsung office employee, as the company had claimed. Nevertheless, after he was forced to go to school in the U.S., he was made vice president of Samsung Electro-Mechanics. They've been separated since 2012 and have a 10-year-old son. Im has asked for $1.04 billion in the divorce settlement but is expected to receive much less.

In 1999, she married Im Woo-jae, known in the Korean press as "Mr. Cinderella" because of his humble background, as an "employee of a security Service affiliate of Samsung Group". They separated in 2012, and have one son together.


In a court ruling in July 2017, Lee was ordered to pay her ex-husband Im Woo-jae $7.6 million, as part of their divorce settlement, with Lee receiving sole custody of their son. Im is counter-suing, seeking $1.1 billion as a division of assets.
