She said, "In the past, I dated men who had no money, but the reason it never worked out was because they had such an inferiority complex about making less than I did. It could be just a small threaded bracelet that a woman would want, but they"d say, "Hey, you have a lot of money, so why don"t you buy it." I felt that inferiority complex from them and they kept trying to whittle me down, which caused trouble so we ended up breaking up. But with [my husband] Lee Sang Soon, he has absolutely no inferiority complex about earning less."
