It is hard to believe that she is 44-years old, she looks great:
Samsung C&T’s fashion group President Lee Seo-hyun has been selected as one of the 10 most beautiful female billionaires in the world by Trendchaser, a U.S.-based outlet specializing in entertainment trends and news.
Lee is a daughter of Samsung Chairman Lee Kun-hee. Her older brother is Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong, the de facto leader of Samsung, and her older sister is Hotel Shilla CEO Lee Boo-jin.
Trendchaser introduced 10 female billionaires aged between 19 and 50 under the headline “Youth, Fame, Beauty, and Fortune: These Ladies Have it All.” It named Virgin Group heiress Holly Branson, Ralph Lauren’s daughter Dylan Lauren and Hearst heiress Amanda Hearst as well.
Trendchaser wrote that some of them made their fortunes on their own, while others inherited the family business.
Although the 44-year-old executive seems to be closer to the latter, the report noted she expanded the company’s business horizons into fashion and chemicals. She was also responsible for buying Italy-based fashion house Colombo Via Della Spiga. [Korea Times]
You can read more at the link, but she is reportedly worth $1.5 billion. If anyone is wondering she is married with four kids. They could have easily added her sister Lee Boo-jin to the list as well.
ROK Heads may remember that Lee Boo-jin recently went through a billion dollar divorce fight with her ex-husband. So if there are any ROK Heads looking to marry a billionaire she is still available.
Lee Seo-hyun also has a brother. Her brother is Samsung Chairman in waiting Lee Jae-yong who was arrested for corruption for his alleged role in the Choi Soon-sil scandal. There is actually a fourth Lee sibling, Lee Yoon-hyung, but she tragically committed suicide all the way back in 2005 in New York City:
She was very pretty as well, but allegedly committed suicide because she was forbidden by her father from marrying her boyfriend because his class was too low in South Korea.
