Uhm Ji-won and Oh Young-wook
Actress Uhm Ji-won, 37, will tie the knot with architect Oh Young-wook on May 27, Uhm’s talent agency said on Thursday.

The announcement came just one month after the last episode of SBS’ “The Woman Who Married Three Times” aired on March 30, in which Uhm played lead character Oh Hyun-soo.

Oh is the founder of architectural firm ogisadesign d’espacio architects (oddaa). The 38-year-old groom is also an author and illustrator who has published several books on travel and art.

Uhm and Oh made their romantic relationship public in July 2013 when they were caught on a date by local tabloids. At that time, Uhm’s agency denied any wedding rumors.

The happy couple has reportedly decided to keep the wedding simple and austere, refraining from the wedding photo shoot as well as the spouse-to-spouse gifts (“yaemul”) and family-to-family gifts (“yaedan”).
