Popular actor Cho Yeon-woo, 38, is set to tie the knot on Dec. 15 with a college student 16 years his junior, his agency said Wednesday.
His wife-to-be, 22, identified only as Cha, is a senior dance major at the Korea National University of Arts. They have been dating for about two years since meeting in 2007 through a blind date arranged by their colleagues.
Cho first announced the wedding plan at a gathering of his colleagues to celebrate the final taping of an MBC TV drama.
“I have been very cautious about the marriage because of the wide age gap. But now I really thank my bride for trusting and following me,” he told a local daily. “We originally planned to hold a wedding ceremony in May, but brought it forward after getting full support from our parents.”
After making his debut in the TV drama “All In” in 2002, the model-turned-actor has broadened his fan base with appearances on hit dramas such as “Yi San.” (Korea Times)
