Samsung chairman Lee Kun-hee's daughter Boo-jin and her husband failed to agree over child custody in the first arbitration since Lee filed for divorce in October. A source close to the husband, Im Woo-jae, who is also a vice president of Samsung Electro-Mechanics, said Im is adamant about retaining custody of their son. If they fail to reach agreement in arbitration, he will enter a legal battle, the source added.
Lee and Im were not present at the hearing. The next arbitration is scheduled in February next year. The two married in 1999 and have been living apart for seven years.
