    Star golfer Lydia Ko has hinted at impending wedding bells with Chung Jun, the son of Hyundai Card vice chairman Chung Tae-young.

    According to friends, the two are in a serious relationship.

    Ko posted a photo of herself with Jun captioned "soon" and a love emoji on her Instagram account on Monday.

    Born in Seoul, she became a record-breaking golfer after emigrating to New Zealand when she was six years old.

    She became the youngest golfer at 15 to win an LPGA title and the youngest world No. 1 at the age of 17.

    She won bronze at the Tokyo Olympics earlier this month and also claimed silver at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. In April, she won her 16th career title.

    Chung Jun, the youngest of the vice chairman's children, studies philosophy and data science at Claremont McKenna College in California.
