2009/05/08 | Permalink | Source

Actor Sol Kyung-gu, 41, and actress Song Yoon-ah, 36, will marry on May 28.

The renowned actor and actress plan to announce their scheduled wedding at Litz-Carlton Hotel in southern Seoul Saturday at 4 p.m.

They made up their mind to marry, following a recent greeting session of their families, a close source of the couple said.

"We appeared together in two films but we started dating in fall of 2007 in full scale", said Actress Song. "We spontaneously got to have mind to get marry each other".

Actor Seol earlier married his senior actor Ahn Nae-sang's sister in 1996 when he acting in the theater. However, he divorced in 2006, four years of estranged life.

"Seol has lived alone since 2002, when he was shooting a film, "Jail Breakers - No. 815", as main actor as his wife lived in Canada. He has never lived together although his wife returned in 2005", said a spokesman of the agency of Actor Seol.

Seol is is best known for his roles in the popular "Public Enemy" and "Silmido". He studied film and theater at Hanyang University and upon graduation took part in mostly theatrical productions.

He displayed his marvelous acting skills in Palme d'Or nominated and Silver Lion winning director "Lee Chang-dong"'s "Peppermint Candy", in which he is a suicidal man devastated by the two-decades of historical change his country undergoes and as a mildly mentally-retarded outcast with sociopathic inclinations in Oasis, two groundbreaking films that started the Korean new wave film movement.

Song is a renowned model-turned actress. She spent most of her childhood days in Gimcheon, North Gyeongsang Province. She graduated with a Humanities Degree at the Hanyang University. Song, as an aspiring actress, made her debut in the 1995 KBS drama "Age of Individuality".

She later became a well-known icon by co-starring in the mbc drama "Hotelier". Song is also part-time lecturer at the Korean Central Academy of Fine Arts. Her movie, "Secret - 2009" is supposed to have already been completed somewhere around this August.
