Sung-joon, along with Kim Woo-bin, Lee Jong-seok, and Hong Jong-hyun, were among those who enjoyed great popularity since their debut, especially when he was a good-looking actor. Those born between 1989 and 1990 and of similar age have all grown into top actors. However, Sung-joon, who once enjoyed high popularity for his handsome appearance and tall height, shocked people by revealing that he was married in 2020.
Sung-joon was a top model before becoming an actor due to the irregular income from his modeling career. Sung-joon had made an impression by appearing on the TV screen with his other model-turned-actor friends through KBS2’s “Drama Special Series – White Christmas,” before settling down as an actor.
Sung-joon soon became the next-generation star through dramas such as “Lie to Me” and “Flower Boy Band,” especially after playing the role of Gon in the MBC drama “Gu Family Book” in 2013. In this work, Sung-joon became a hot topic character with rumors of a romantic relationship with the main actor Suzy.
At the time, the media outlet that reported this dating rumor released photos of the two moving in a car together, putting their arms around each other’s shoulders, or naturally touching each other. However, both denied rumors of a romantic relationship.
After that, Sung-joon, who secretly enlisted in the army in 2018, revealed in February 2020 that he was married and had a child. Sung-joon found out his girlfriend was pregnant just before his enlistment so he rushed to get a full-time job after registering his marriage.
After confessing this fact to fans in a handwritten letter, Sung-joon received their support. The truth itself was shocking, but Sung-joon’s sincerity moved fans’ hearts. Sung-joon then got married in September 2020 after getting discharged.
After being discharged from the military, Sung-joon returned with the role of Ji-woo in the movie “Mojito: The Magic” and is scheduled to appear in the tvN drama “Island” as his next work.
