Actor Yoo Ji-tae, 35, and actress Kim Hyo-jin, 27, will tie the knot Dec. 2 after five years together, Namu Actors, Kim’s agency, said. However, the venue and other details have not been decided.
Yoo and Kim first met in a fashion commercial advertisement in 2003 and have kept the relationship going over the last five years since late 2006. After the public learned of their relationship, the couple has appeared together at various events.
Kim openly expressed her love for Yoo in a recent photo shoot for a fashion magazine, while Yoo revealed his plans to marry her when he appeared on the MBC talk show “Golden Fishery” in March last year.
Yoo made his debut in the film “Bye June” in 1998 and has starred in numerous films, such as “Attack the Gas Station” in 1999, “Ditto” in 2000, “Oldboy” in 2003 and “Antarctic Journal” in 2005. The actor has extended his scope by directing his own film “How Does the Blind Dream?” in 2005.
Kim started her career as a fashion model when she was a high school student and first appeared on the MBC television sitcom “Non Stop” in 2000. Since then, she has been cast in dramas such as “RNA,” “Magic” and “I Am Happy,” and recently “Mary Stayed Out All Night.”
