Love Is in the Air for Korean Celebrities

The month of June must be the season of love, as Korean celebrities admit their relationships and make a wedding announcement.

Earlier in the week, popular singer Jang Yun-jeong surprised everyone by admitting that she and wacky comedian Roh Hong-cheol were indeed a couple. Then K-pop idol Se7ven confirmed the rumor that he has been seeing actress Park Han-byeol for the past seven years. The whole affair came to light when Se7en wrote a posting entitled “I’ll Tell You Everything” on his mini homepage. The couple first met when they were seniors in high school and has remained very close for over seven years. He said that he didn’t want to make the relationship public, because he wanted to let the affection grow naturally like those of other ordinary couples. But now he’s telling his fans everything to be fair to Park and ask for the blessings of his fans.

Then on Thursday comedian Jung Hyung-don of the “Infinite Challenge” fame said that he’s getting married this fall on September 12th. The bride-to-be is a writer of an MBC variety show and met Jung when they were both working on a show called “The Mystery Commandos.”
