Actors Son Ye-jin, Hyun Bin to tie the knot
Actors Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin are getting married in March.
Son shared the news on her Instagram account and Hyun Bin’s agency VAST Entertainment confirmed the news the same day.
Son wrote that she has found someone whom she wants to spend the rest of her life with, adding “yes… it’s him.”
Son and Hyun Bin revealed in January last year that they were dating. The pair starred as lovers in tvN’s hit television series “Crash Landing on You” (2019-20).
“Even just by being with him he is a warm, reliable person,” Son wrote in her post in Korean. “I’ve always thought that two people meeting, sharing their feelings and promising a future together was something that I couldn’t imagine doing... We’ve come all the way here so naturally. I’m grateful for everything that helped our relationship turn into fate.”
VAST Entertainment said that the couple wishes to have a private wedding with just their family and friends, and asked fans to respect their decision.
Son and Hyun Bin, whose real name is Kim Tae-pyung, had repeatedly denied dating rumors which first began after they co-starred in the crime thriller film “The Negotiation” in 2018. The rumors intensified when Son played a South Korean chaebol heiress and Hyun Bin an elite North Korean officer who fall in love in the romantic comedy "Crash Landing On You.”
At the time, the agencies for the two actors emphasized that their relationship began in March, a month after the conclusion of the TV series in 2020.
Both Son and Hyun Bin earned early fame for their roles in romance dramas before moving into genres such as history and thriller.
Son emerged as the “icon of first love” thanks to the romance films "Lover's Concerto" (2002) and "The Classic" (2003). Afterward she received recognition for more diverse leading roles like in thriller film "The Truth Beneath” (2015) and the historical drama film "The Last Princess" (2016). On TV, she has remained as the queen of melodramas and rom-coms, starring in JTBC’s "Something in the Rain" (2018) and "Crash Landing on You."
Hyun Bin became a heartthrob after starring in the MBC television rom-com series "My Lovely Sam-soon" (2005) and SBS’s “Secret Garden” (2010-11). He then took on the leading roles in the drama film “Late Autumn” (2010), the historical thriller film “The Fatal Encounter” (2014) and the period zombie film “Rampant” (2018).
