TV personality Seo Se-won and his wife Seo Jung-hee have agreed the terms of their divorce after a court battle unmasked their 32-year picture-book marriage as an epic and increasingly violent ordeal.
The details of the settlement were not immediately known.
Seo Jung-hee, a former model and actress, first filed for divorce in July last year after she reported her husband to police for assaulting her in May the same year. CCTV footage showed Seo Se-won dragging her across the floor in a building in Seoul.
She claimed that they argued about her husband's mistress and he assaulted her and threatened to kill her if she filed for divorce.
The former comedian denied the account, claiming the quarrel was about his church. He admitted there was a struggle on their way home but denied assaulting her. But he was given a two-year suspended sentence in a trial in May this year.
