In 1931, December 29, Yi Gu was born in Japan when Korea was a colony of Japan. At long last, he studied in Japan High School, when Korea became independent from Japan. He went to Korea; however, the president of Korea, Yi Syungman, did not allow him to come. He was so confused because Korea and Japan did not allow him to live in their countries. So, he went to America to learn architecture. He learned at MIT College of Engineering, and he worked at a Chinese-American construction design company.

Then, they fell in love with each other. Finally, they were married in 1958. They lived in the Korean palace, Changdeok Palace. Yi Gu went to Japan many times to attend lectures in architecture and bankruptcy. The happy moments they had were not long because of Yi Gu's family.
