Actress Gong Hyo-jin and singer Kevin Oh, who are publicly dating, announced the news of their marriage.
On the afternoon of August 17th, Gong Hyo-jin’s agency Management SOOP officially announced, “Gong Hyo-jin and Kevin Oh are about to have a new start in life together.”
They continued, “According to the two’s wishes, their wedding will be held privately in October with the attendance of relatives from both families only”, adding, “We ask for your understanding that we cannot inform you of in detail about the specific schedule and location”.
As a result, Gong Hyo-jin and Kevin Oh will tie the knot six months after they publicized their romantic relationship in April.
Gong Hyo Jin, nicknamed Gongvely by Korean netizens, was born in 1980 and turns 42 this year. She is loved for her natural acting in famous works such as “When the Camellia Blooms”, “The Master’s Sun”, “Jealousy Incarnate”, “It’s Okay, That’s Love”, etc.
Kevin Oh, who was born in 1990 and is 10 years younger than Gong Hyo Jin, made his face known through Mnet’s singing competition show “Superstar K7” in 2015. He officially debuted in 2017. After gaining a lot of popularity through Super Band in 2019, he released songs such as “Oh, My Sun” and “After Tonight”.
To some extent, their marriage was already expected. It is because Gong Hyo-jin caught the bouquet at the wedding of her best friend Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin held in March, then immediately revealed her romantic relationship with Kevin Oh.
Kevin Oh later posted a long message on his fancafe, saying “I wanted to convey my sincere heart in words like this because I couldn’t tell you all, who have always supported me, the news in advance. I’m in a beautiful relationship with a nice person”. He added, “I’m sure many people were very shocked by the news but I hope you can accept it nicely”. The two received many congratulations and support from fans after publicizing their relationship.
