Actor Shin Hyun-jun will marry his girlfriend of six months on May 26, he announced on his television show Saturday.
"As my father is sick, we're in a bit of a hurry to get married," Shin added. The bride-to-be is 12 years younger and studying for a doctorate in music overseas.
The couple's first encounter was like a scene from a movie. Shin bumped into the woman in the doorway of a building and they almost fell in love at first sight.
Shin was predominantly active in movies but more recently appeared in a couple of TV series since last year. He also teaches acting at Induck University.
