Top actors Sul Kyung-gu, 41, and Song Yun-a, 35, surprised the public with their engagement to wed at the end of the month.
``Sul and Song are holding their wedding on May 28,'' Sul's management agency S2007 Entertainment said Friday. The two stars plan to hold an official press conference today at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Yeoksam-dong, southern Seoul.
The ``On Air'' TV screen beauty and the award-winning actor of ``Peppermint Candy'' are both graduates of Hanyang University. They acted opposite each other for the first time in 2002 through the film ``Jail Breakers'' and then in 2006 for the melodrama ``Lost in Love.''
Coincidentally enough, Sul separated with his then-wife, the younger sister of actor Ahn Nae-sang, during the production of ``Jail Breakers'' and then divorced her by mutual agreement in July 2007, when ``Lost in Love'' was released.
In an interview with Sports Chosun, Sul denied rumors about having had an extramarital affair ― or was pregnant ― out of wedlock with Song.
``We started dating at the end of 2007,'' the ``Public Enemy Returns'' star was quoted as saying. ``After filming the 2002 movie `Jail Breakers,' we developed a friendly relationship as senior and junior colleagues (…) I deliberated a lot since I know marriage is difficult. But (Song) has supported me through thick and thin, and inspired my determination to marry.''
Song will appear on the big screen later on in the year through ``Saving My Wife'' while Sul's latest movie ``Yongseoneun Eopda (There Is No Forgiveness)'' is slated for release in 2010.
