Actress Hwang Jung-eum will tie the knot with businessman Lee Young-don next month.
Hwang's management agency C-JeS Entertainment announced her marriage plans in a press release on Thursday.
The two started dating last year after they were introduced by a mutual friend and Hwang fell in love with Lee because of his warm heart and the support he gave her in coping with her busy schedule, the agency said.
When the couple's relationship became public knowledge last month, their parents encouraged them to marry, it added.
Lee, a former professional golfer, now works for his family's steel company, Geoahm Steel.
Hwang made her debut with girl group Sugar in 2002, before moving on to acting. Her breakthrough came in 2009, when she was cast in the hit MBC sitcom "High Kick Through The Roof". A series of solid performances in dramas has since earned Hwang a reputation as one of the most reliable actresses.
She plans to continue acting after marrying.
