Popular actor Kim Sang-kyung will marry a dentist five years his junior in coming October, his agency said yesterday.

The 35-year-old actor is best known for his roles in hit films such as ``Memories of Murder'' and more recently, ``May 18,'' a movie about the 1980 Gwangju Democracy Movement. He met Kim Eun-gyung, his wife-to-be, when he visited her dentistry in Gahoe-dong, Seoul in June.

``I knew she was the one when I first laid eyes on her,'' said Kim, according to Fantom Entertainment Group, Kim's agency.

After getting permission from their parents last week, the couple decided to marry in a wedding ceremony to be held at Walkerhill Hotel in Gwangjang-dong, Seoul, on Oct. 7. They will honeymoon in the Maldives.

Kim is scheduled to play the title role in the historical TV drama ``King Sejong'' to air from next January on KBS.
