"As Ko Soo will start shooting his new movie in March, they moved the wedding date forward," the agency said.

On Wednesday morning, prior to the announcement, Ko posted a message about his wedding plans on his fan site, revealing that he fell in love with a woman in 2008 and they both immediately knew they had found their perfect match.

"We decided to be together our entire lives because we trust and depend on each other more than anyone else," he said.

Since Ko made his debut in a music video in 1998, he has appeared in a number of TV dramas and movies such as "The White Night" and "The Front Line."
