Diane Farr and Her Ex-Husband Seung Yong Chung’s Relationship

Seung got down on one knee and proposed to Diane at a private location, and the couple were engaged on October 29, 2005, as Diane accepted his proposal on the spot. However, due to their racial differences, their relationship was met with many opposing views from family, friends, and fans. 

Both Diane and Seung’s parents disapproved of their union as they wanted them to marry within their race. In an interview, Diane said,

“We’re biracial — he’s Asian, and I’m Caucasian. On our sixth date, he said to me, ‘I’m not allowed to marry you. I’m supposed to marry a Korean girl.’ My parents had a similar conversation with me around junior high school, giving me a list of who I was and wasn’t allowed to love. But somehow, Asians just didn’t fall on the “no” list. Of course, by the time I left for college, the first thing I did was go and fall in love with a black man.”
