Seung Yong Chung’s Parents Did not Want Him to Marry Outside His Race
Seung and the American actress Diane Farr started dating in 2005. After the pair’s relationship kicked off, Seung revealed to Diane that his parents were against him marrying someone outside his Korean race. Consequently, they had to jump a few hurdles before bringing both of their parents to fit into the equation of their wedding.
They finally got married on June 24, 2006, at Rainbow Tarns, a lodge in Mammoth Lakes in California. Their wedding ceremony was officiated by Barry G. Littman, a film executive, and Five Buddhist monks.
In an exclusive interview, Diane revealed that they got pregnant on their wedding night for their first child. Their son (Beckett) was born basically 10 months after their wedding. When Beckett was only 9 months old, Diane said they accidentally got pregnant again. They later gave birth to twin daughters, Sawyer, and Coco Chung in 2008. Interestingly, Seung and Diane had 3 children within 16 months of their marriage.
Seung and Diane are now Separated
Furthermore, Diane has removed most of the images of her with Seung from her Instagram account. Pictures of their anniversary wishes and family time together are also missing from the actress’s Instagram profile.
To date, neither Seung Yong Chung nor Diane has explained the reasons behind their separation. However, some rumors making the rounds indicate that it may be due to the couple’s cultural differences. While this may be seen as a reason for the split, there are several other biracial couples whose marriages stood the test of time.
