Park met his live-in girlfriend, Seo Myeong-seon, first as a pen pal 17 years ago. They were engaged to be married, but had to postpone the wedding because of Park’s musical debut. The couple started to live together after finding out that she was pregnant in October 2005. Then a baby boy was born in June 2006 and they named him Vitchan, which means “to sparkle brilliantly.” Park’s wife is currently pregnant with their second child. They plan to get married after she gives birth in late August.
Park says he couldn’t come right out and say that he already had a son, because he was afraid that the group’s popularity would plunge if the fans of V.O.S. found out that he has a wife and a son. But now he’s decided to disclose his family and vowed to become a proud and good father to his children. (KBS)
