Ryu Seung-beom will be a father, and husband, soon
According to the agency, 40-year-old Ryu will soon tie the knot with his girlfriend, “who’s expecting very soon,” after she gives birth.
The news was first broke by local news outlet OSEN.
The couple had originally planned to hold a wedding earlier this year, but had to cancel due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The couple will settle in France, where the bride-to-be, who’s 10 years younger than Ryu, is living as an artist, the agency said. The two have been dating for three years.
Ryu is a veteran actor who debuted in 2000 with a film directed by his brother Ryu Seung-wan entitled “Die Bad.” He has been featured in a slew of hits including “No Manners” (2002), “The Unjust” (2010), “Perfect Number” (2012) and “The Berlin File” (2012).
His last film was “Tazza: One Eyed Jack” (2019), in which he played a one-eyed gambler named Aeggu, who put together a team of gamblers from around the country to win a prize of 5 billion won ($4.2 million).
Ryu made his last public appearance at a press conference for the movie last August. It was his first public appearance in four years.
