Actor Jin Goo, 34, who currently stars in the blockbuster hit "Roaring Currents," was married this weekend in a private ceremony.
He and his non-celebrity girlfriend married at a closed-door ceremony in the Gangnam district of Seoul. His bride is an office worker, who is four years younger than he is. There was no press conference.
Jin Goo met his new bride a year ago but it took him a while to work up the courage to express his feelings and ask her out.
He first mentioned his prospective bride in Dec. 2013 when he appeared on the variety program "Infinite Challenge." At that time he said that he cared for someone but it was a one-sided crush.
"Actually, I've had a crush for a while, but I wasn't able to confess my true feelings to her. I'm kind of an introverted person," said Jin Goo.
He may also have hinted at the bride's name at that time, saying that every night he prayed asking for "grace." The word "grace" in Korean is "Jihye," which is a common woman's name.
Apparently his prayers were answered and he worked up the courage to ask her out. She said yes.
The actor first went public with his relationship in May and announced his wedding plans at the same time.
Although the Sept. 21 wedding ceremony was private, limited to friends and family, a few celebrities did attend. Jo Hyun Jae, Jin Goo's "Ad Genius Lee Tae Baek" co-star was seen arriving the ceremony. And a few celebrities officiated at the event.
According to Jin Goo's agency, BH Entertainment, the wedding song was performed by singers Lee Jung, Gummy, Choi Hyun Joon from V.O.S. and Lee Jin Sung from Monday Kiz.
Jin Goo, an award-winning actor made his drama debut playing the younger version of Lee Byung Hun's character in the 2003 gambling drama "All In." He worked with Lee Byung Hun again in the Kim Ji Woon gangster-revenge film "A Bittersweet Life."
Jin Goo won a Grand Bell Award and Blue Dragon Award for his role in the Bong Joon Ho thriller "Mother."
In "Roaring Currents," he plays Im Jun Young. The film is now considered the most successful Korean film of all time. This year he also appears in "The Target" and "C'est Si Bon." He plays Staff Sergeant Han Sang Kook in the upcoming 2015 film "Battle of Yeonpyeong."
