Actress Ham So-won (35) has decided to delay her wedding to 29-year-old Zhang Wei to focus on her career as she prepares to work on a new Chinese drama.
Ham has been cast to appear in an upcoming soap opera on China's state-controlled CCTV with He Minghan, with filming scheduled to begin in September. She said her agent suggested she put off her plans to hitch Zhang, the son of a Chinese real estate tycoon, and after talking it over with her betrothed they agreed.
"We discussed our marriage plans and decided to postpone it a bit due to the upcoming drama," Ham said in a telephone interview from Beijing on Friday. "I think we'll get married next year after it wraps up."
The actress drew a lot of attention last year after Koreans learned she was dating Zhang, whose family is high on China's growing rich list. Media have dubbed him one of China's "eight Lamborghini Princes."
Meanwhile Ham, who has already won over Chinese fans in several TV dramas produced there, posted a photo on her Chinese-language blog last Tuesday showing her inside a limousine, highlighting her luxurious lifestyle in China.
"My manager in China posted the photo and I did not know it would become such a sensation in Korea," she said.
The limousine was provided by the producers of the drama she is due to appear in as Ham was on her way home from a party with officials involved in the production.
