Now that the power couple is set to take the next level of their relationship, let's get to know Choi Tae Joon and now Park Shin Hye's fiancee.
From Child Star to Sought After Leading Men
Like the Hallyu star, the South Korean heartthrob has a slew of notable Kdramas under his belt and started as a child star.
He first starred in the 2001 melodrama "Piano," where he took on the role of Jo In Sung's younger version.
With years in showbiz, he managed to continue acting and landed as one of the casts of "Mother's Garden," where he won Best New Actor at the 2014 MBC Drama Awards.
Developed Appreciation in Kpop Because of 'So I Married the Anti-Fan'
Playing the role of top star Hoo Joon in the hit series "So I Married the Anti-Fan" made him appreciate the music industry more.
In his interview, he expressed his deep admiration for the idols and music artists, especially their dedication to their craft.
"Because I'm not a K-pop star, let alone a top star, I have no confidence in my singing and dancing skills," he said, adding, "So I'm working even harder to practice and learn how to look cool [on stage]."
Choi Tae Joon is Two Years Younger Than Park Shin Hye
Park Shin Hye and Choi Tae Joon also became the subject of breakup rumors.
Years after confirming their relationship, rumor sparked that they were heading to splitsville due to their two-year-age gap; however, the Hallyu star denied the rumors and said that she and the "Suspicious Partner" star are "still going strong."
