Uhm Tae Woong to Wed Ballerina in January

Uhm Tae Woong will soon be building a family of his own, as he announced that he will be getting married and that his bride-to-be is already pregnant.
The actor plans to wed his bride, a ballerina named Yoon Hye Jin from the Korean National Ballet team, in January next year.

Shim Jung Woon, head of Uhm Tae Woong′s agency Sim Entertainment, told enews, “Uhm Tae Woong will be marrying Ms. Yoon Hye Jin. The location hasn′t been confirmed yet, but their parents have decided the date will be January 9.”

He also added, “Ms. Yoon Hye Jin has been pregnant for five weeks. We′ve come to announce [Uhm Tae Woong′s] marriage and his wife′s pregnancy at the same time. Please wish him well.”

Uhm Jung Hwa, Uhm Tae Woong′s sister, was the one who had introduced Ms. Yoon Hye Jin to him. The two met in mid-2012, and after holding a relationship since then, finally decided to tie the knot.

News of Uhm Tae Woong′s marriage first made it into the open through the most recent episode of KBS2′s 1 Night, 2 Days. In the preview for the next episode that aired this day, Uhm Tae Woong made the surprise confession that he will be getting married soon, even taking his fellow members Kim Seung Woo, Lee Su Geun, Sung Si Kyung, Ju Won and Cha Tae Hyun by surprise.

The viewers, who first learned of his marriage through this pre-recording, were also plunged into shock and amazement.

A rep from Uhm Tae Woong′s agency said, “Because he had been loved so much through the show, he wanted to make his first announcement of his marriage there.”

Uhm Tae Woong made his debut in 1997 through the film The Happenings, and most recently scored a success with the drama The Equator Man. In variety, he′s well known as a laid back character on 1 Night, 2 Days. He is also singer/actress Uhm Jung Hwa′s little brother.
