Some media outlets report this as him organizing his assets to prepare for his marriage with Son Ye-jin. However, he said the house was just sold late.
Rumors have been raised again that Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin, the leading star couple in 2021, are about to get married. The imminent marriage rumor came back again after a media outlet revealed that Hyun Bin has sold his villa on the fifth floor of Mark Hills in Heukseok-dong, Dongjak-gu, Seoul. He has also bought and moved to Walkerhill Podoville Penthouse in Acheon-dong, Guri-si, Gyeonggi-do in January, and is rumored to have set up a honeymoon house ahead of his marriage. This time, over the sale of his Mark Hills villa, some media have raised speculation that he is liquidating his real assets to prepare for his marriage with Son Ye-jin in earnest.
Biz Korea exclusively reported that Hyun Bin sold the Mark Hills villa in Heukseok-dong, where he had lived for 11 years, leaving 1.3 billion won in market profits. The Sunday newspaper, along with Biz Korea, exclusively reported an article on his purchase of Walkerhill Podoville Penthouse in January. However, the reported sale of the Mark Hills villa has no connection with the marriage of Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin.
According to the real estate industry specializing in luxury housing, Hyun Bin put Mark Hills in Heukseok-dong up for real estate sale right after moving into Walkerhill Podoville. When he left Mark Hills, where he originally lived and moved to Walkerhill Podoville, he naturally put his former house up for sale. Inquiries continued because it was a luxury villa where the top stars lived, but the deal was eventually made in July, six months after the sale. It was on September 27th that the registration of the ownership transfer was filed with the court, and Biz Korea reported this on September 29th without any further confirmation.
However, in mid to late October, several media outlets started to report this fact as a real asset arrangement to prepare for marriage, about a month after the original article. Given various circumstances, this real estate transaction seems to have been only a natural transaction during Hyun Bin’s moving process.
In the real estate industry specializing in luxury housing, it is rumored that the Walkerhill Podoville Penthouse in Acheon-dong, Guri-si, where Hyun Bin is living, will be the newlywed’s house of Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin. In fact, an official who visited the penthouse said, “If you look at the interior and furniture, it looks like a typical honeymoon house.”
Son Ye-jin is currently filming for JTBC’s drama “Thirty Nine”. The filming began in late August and has gone half the way. Therefore, it is scheduled to be aired in the first half of 2022. Some actors did hold their weddings in the middle of their dramas or movies’ filming. However, in most cases, they would try to avoid their filming schedules.
Moreover, looking from the perspective of a top star like Son Ye-jin, there is no reason for her to hurriedly plan a wedding in the middle of her drama preparation. According to most predictions from people in the entertainment industry, the same-age couple Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin would tie the knot within this year before both turn 40. If so, they can possibly get married around the end of this year after the filming of “Thirty Nine” is done. However, everything is only speculation. Therefore, only Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin are the ones who can choose the most suitable time for their marriage.
Hyun Bin is still taking a break and has not yet decided on his next work. Broadcasters once predicted that Hyun Bin would likely to appear in a drama scheduled to air in 2022. However, another actor has recently been cast for this work. An entertainment official who is close to Hyun Bin said, “As far as I know, Hyun Bin will focus on movies rather than dramas for a while”. In fact, instead of romance, he will prefer the action genre regardless of movies or dramas. Hyun Bin has performed his melodrama acting in “Crash Landing On You”, “Memories of the Alhambra”, “Hyde, Jekyll and Me” and “Secret Garden”. Moreover, he has also attracted great attention for his action acting in movies, such as “Rampant”, “The Negotiation”, “Confidential Assignment” and “The Fatal Encounter”.
Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin worked together for the first time in the movie “The Negotiation”. After pairing up again in “Crash Landing On You”, they developed feelings for each other. Focusing on films instead of dramas means Hyun Bin will stop acting in melodrama for a while and greet the audience with more action scenes.
It is known that the romantic relationship of Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin is still going well. When Dispatch first uploaded their exclusive report about the couple’s dating rumor, they pointed out that the two actors enjoyed playing golf for their dates. Even now, they still visit the golf courses together whenever they have time.
