Actor Ryu Si-won to wed October 26
Top Hallyu star Ryu Si-won announced on Wednesday, the day of his 38th birthday, that he will get married on October 26.
He broke the news through a posting to his fans on his official fan page Ryusiwon.net www.ryusiwon.net early in the day, after thanking the several thousands of fans from around Asia who turned up for his birthday party over the weekend.
He also said that his bride-to-be is pregnant and will give birth in a few months. "I think I will also become a dad next spring," Ryu wrote.
He then apologized for not being able to inform fans of the news at an earlier date but explained that it was because his fiancee is not a celebrity.
No information has been revealed about her other than that she was a dance major in college. The two are said to have dated for a year after meeting through an acquaintance.
Ryu will hold a press conference later in the day where he will explain more details about his marriage.
Ryu, singer and actor, made his debut in 1994, and has starred in various dramas including "Secret" (2000, MBC), "Beautiful Days" (2001, SBS) and "Style" (2009, SBS).
He has led a particularly successful career in Japan since debuting in the country six years ago, selling out all five of his concert tours held throughout the country.
Most recently, he has been both the director and racer of his own pro car racing team 'TEAM106,' he set up entertainment company 'abnormal106' and turned producer for singer Rottyful Sky.
