Actor Kim Jae-won will tie the knot with his girlfriend on June 28, his management agency said Tuesday. Kim confirmed the announcement with a message he posted on a website for his fans the same day.

"I've found my other half. I want to live with her for the rest of my life," he wrote. The 32-year-old didn't elaborate on his bride-to-be, saying "she is not a public figure."

According to his agency, she is a friend from childhood. The couple started seeing each other last October and Kim proposed in February. The date for the wedding was decided during a recent meeting of members of the two families, the agency said.

In the message, Kim said, "We are the same age. She is warm-hearted, kind and considerate," adding he believes that his fans will give them full support for a happy marriage.

Kim made his debut in 2001 in the TV drama "Honey." His beaming smile earned the actor the somewhat feminine nickname of "smiling angel". Subsequently he has cultivated an image as a tough guy, complete with defined stomach muscles and a developed upper torso.

Kim is set to appear in the TV drama "Scandal," which will be broadcast later this month.
