Jang Dong Gun, 38, announced his marriage to model/actress Go So Young, 37, at his fan meeting on March 6th at the COEX Auditorium in Seoul. The transcript below.
There’s something I would like to say to everyone.
When I was preparing and filming for The Way of the Warrior, I was often by myself overseas and thought a lot over about my life. Many thoughts would then surface to mind. I felt that besides living my life as an actor, I should also live my life as a man. At that moment, I began to develop thoughts of spending the rest of my life with a friend of mine who have been by my side all this while.
On May 2nd, I will be getting married with my closest friend, colleague and my love, Go So Young. Actually, to be able to stand here and say this is because of the courage that all of you have given me. So I hope to get the blessings of everyone here first. In times when the economy and society isn’t doing very well, I know that my actions of announcing about my happiness might be questioned, so I chose to be cautious about it. I really thank everyone for their concern but on the other hand, I hope that we can sincerely go about this in a quiet manner. I will not neglect my life as an actor and I will strive to do my best to make everyone proud. I will not let you down and please continue to show us support.
