All About Jin Goo and His Wife

Who is Jin Goo’s Wife?

To those who don’t know, Jin Goo is married. Jin Goo married his wife Kim Ji-hye, who is a non celebrity, in 2014. People only know a bit about his wife, but the saying goes that she is a worker, and is 4 years younger than him.

When their romance began, Jin Goo was the one who liked her first, but he didn’t dare express his feelings. Finally, he gathered up his courage and told her. Their first child was born on June 2015, and they are now blessed by their second child, who was born in November 2016.

Jin Goo is a celebrities who respects marriage. It shows by how he chose and married his wife, and respects his family and their two children who are only a year apart. The two support and love each other deeply and fondly.

The Wedding

Jin Goo tied the knot with his girlfriend in a private wedding. The wedding was held behind closed doors out of consideration for the bride’s privacy, the actor’s agency said. No press conference was held either.

Jin Goo started dating his soulmate in April 2014. He once mentioned, late in 2013, on a television program that he was into someone, but did not confess his feelings until 2014. In the wedding invitation, the groom’s witty line of, “I have prayed every night for Ji-hye” grabbed attention, since the word “Ji-hye” referred to the literal meaning of “wisdom” and the bride’s name at the same time.
