In a year that has been dominated by acrimonious news about celebrity couples gone awry, Jo Jung-suk and his wife Gummy are soon to celebrate their first year wedding anniversary. The two had been dating for five years before getting married in a private ceremony last year on October 8th.
Their marriage has been low profile compared to most celebrity couples, because the two operate in very separate spheres in the entertainment industry. Jo Jung-suk's rise to stardom has been relatively recent. At the time the two first started dating in 2013 he had only just started to become a widely noticed figure thanks to his role in "Lee Soon-sin is the Best", having at that time mainly worked in stage musicals.
A mutual interest in music is what sparked the relationship from the pair, who were originally just friends. Gummy is not a widely known singer, though her songs are very well-known, as she has built her reputation on doing music for drama soundtracks. She sang the eponymous song for "Moonlight Drawn by Clouds" and was also featured recently in the soundtrack for the hit drama "Hotel Del Luna".
Both husband and wife seem satisfied just continuing to focus on their careers as they did before marriage. Jo Jung-suk has mentioned in an interview that he feels like he's a little late to the marriage and kids part of life compared to the people around him. He followed that statement up by just saying that he seemed different like that, and that he just sees a lot of happy people around him.
