Chinese actress Tang Wei and Korean filmmaker Kim Tae-yong will get married in the fall, Kim’s agency Bom Film Production said on Wednesday.
The two first met through the 2009 film “Late Autumn” as an actress and director. After the film, they maintained a good friendship until October 2013 when Tang visited Korea for a commercial shoot. From then on, they grew as a couple.

The couple will have their wedding this fall, only inviting friends and family.
“Through movie, we got to know and understand each other,” said Tang and Kim in a statement released by the agency.
“We became friends and then grew much closer. Now we would like to become husband and wife, even if that means learning each other’s hard languages. But we know that this hardship will become the happiest moments, where we will learn to understand deeply and respect each other. Most of all, the movie is the most important witness to our relationship.”
