It’s official, Ladies! Top South Korean actor, Seo Ji-Sub is off the market for good as he recently revealed that he is, in fact, married. The Hallyu star tied the knot with girlfriend, former television reporter and announcer Jo Eun-Jung. The sudden nature of this news surprised many fans. The announcement was made via the 42-year-old actor’s talent agency, 51K’s official Instagram account where So’s message was delivered in both Korean and English.
The couple first confirmed that they were dating back in May 2019. The news absolutely swept the nation as this was the first time So Ji-Sub admitted that he was dating someone in all 24 years of his career. The dating rumours also caused quite a stir in South Korea as the couple had a 16 year age gap with Jo being 25-years-old at that time. Nevertheless, the celebrity couple kept a low profile after the confirmation of the rumour until today.
A representative of 51K gave more details regarding So ji-Sub and Jo Eun-Jung’s wedding. “The couple wanted to quietly cherish the most important and happy moment of their lives, so they decided to hold a quiet wedding with only their immediate families,” the rep stated, “And to provide at least a bit of comfort and hope in this time when everyone is experiencing difficulty, donate 50 million won to Good Neighbours and provide tablets and smart devices to children who lack educational support.”
According to News1, the 51K representative went on to elaborate, “So Ji-Sub is not young, and they naturally decided on marriage after seeing each other with positive feelings,” and added, “It is not a shotgun marriage.”
So Ji-Sub has been at the forefront of the Hallyu wave that took over the globe starring in popular K-dramas such as Oh My Venus, Cain and Abel and Master’s Sun. On top of that, So is highly respected for his acting roles in critically acclaimed films like Rough Cut and Always. He is currently in the middle of filming a new movie titled Confession. However, production was halted due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the couple are now staying home just like all of us.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
