The summer of love continues! Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung are engaged and getting married in August, IdolWow! can confirm.
The actor’s agency today released details of the wedding to be held in Seoul. “The two, who have promised to love and trust one another forever and become life partners, will be getting married at the Grand Hayatt Hotel on August 10th,” BH Entertainment write. “It’s a meaningful consummation of love and we wish for your warm support and blessings.”
The 42-year-old actor and his 11-year-younger bride-to-be first went on a date in 2006 through a mutual friend. While they didn’t see each other more than a few times back then, fate brought them back together in the beginning of 2012 allowing the two screen stars to restart their romance with more conviction. In August 2012 the pair confirmed their on-going relationship status.
Lee, who recently starred in the box office smash Gwanghae, recently said of his fiancée: “She’s a woman I can talk to, and the only woman who can make me smile. I actually like that [our relationship] is out in the open. I feel that now we don’t have to care about what other people think and move [forward] more comfortably.”
And while there is much to prepare, a rep for Lee says that he will still remain focused on his career. “Lee will continue to be faithfully committed to his acting work,” says the spokesman.
Lee will soon see the release of his latest Hollywood feature Red 2, while Lee Ming Jung has recently wrapped up her role on SBS drama All About My Romance.
