Top actor Ryu Si-won has announced his engagement to a woman who is nine years his junior.
"I've always said my ideal type is a feminine woman. My fiancée is very close to my ideal type as she has a calm personality and fair skin," Ryu told reporters Wednesday. "I often wondered if a moment like this would ever come to me, but it has come, and I am truly happy."
The wedding will take place on Oct. 26. The romance began early this year after the two were introduced by an acquaintance last year.
Early Wednesday, Ryu's birthday, he posted a message to his online fan club to deliver the news. "I am getting married on Oct. 26 and will become the father of a baby in spring. Because my fiancée isn't in the entertainment business, I had to keep it secret until this late."
Ryu has been a versatile entertainer for nearly two decades as an actor and singer. He made his Japanese debut in 2004, and has become one of the most popular Korean entertainers there. He also founded a professional car racing team where he is a coach and racer and recently produced an album for singer Rottyful Sky. He will make a return to TV in Korea as the host of a new entertainment program on MBC in November.
