Lee Min-jung and Lee Byung-hun
Actor Lee Byung-hun is to tie the knot with his girlfriend Lee Min-jung, one of Korea’s most sought-after actresses, in August. The two have been together for seven years since 2006, during which time they broke up once but got back together last year.
The wedding will take place at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Seoul on Aug. 10, the two celebrities’ agencies confirmed in separate statements on Wednesday.
“In love and trust, the two have decided to become lifetime companions to each other. Thanks for all your support and interest. We hope that you’ll continue to support them and send them love for their new start,” Lee Byung-Hun’s agency BH Entertainment stated.
Meanwhile, Lee Min-jung’s agency MS team Entertainment flatly denied possible pregnancy.
Speculation had mounted over their wedding ever since the two publicly acknowledged their relationship last year. The 31-year-old actress caught the bouquet at her close friend’s wedding on May 25, with her 43-year-old boyfriend also in attendance at the ceremony.
Lee Byung-hun is on a world promotional tour for “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” in which he stars as Storm Shadow. Another blockbuster, “RED 2,” in which he appears alongside Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman, will be released in July.
