Married celebrity couple Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung are currently in the USA, and they plan to keep it that way. Their agencies recently confirmed that the pair will ring in the new year on foreign soil. The Lee family have shifted their lives to a more peaceful existence miles away from Byung Hun's blackmail scandal.

"Since his domestic schedule for January hasn't been confirmed, he will spend New Year's Day in the States," the hubby's agency said.

Lee Min Jung's agency, MS Team Entertainment, made the following confirmation: "Lee Min Jung is currently in the States... She has not decided on her return date, and no domestic schedules for the month of January have been arranged."

Watch Park Min Young and Ji Chang Wook team up in the thrilling action romance Healer:
