March 3, 2012 was the happiest and most sacred day in Hyun Young’s life. Yes, because it happened to be her wedding day. Prior to the wedding, Hyun Young made a statement that she will tie a knot with her boyfriend, who she had been dating for a year before that. Her husband is 4 years her senior, and works for a foreign finance company. The two met in March 2011 through mutual friends, and began dating later that year.
Through her agency, the 35-year-old actress expressed her thanks to the fans who have been congratulating her. “I promise that we will love and respect one another for the rest of our lives. I would like to ask for your love and support as we embark on our marriage,” said Hyun Young.
The wedding was held on March 3, 2012 at The Sheraton Grande Walkerhill in Gwangjang-dong, Seoul. The agency said that singer Son Ho-young and the band Noel will sing at the wedding. The MC of the wedding was also a fellow celebrity, comedian Boom.
Hyun Young, through her agency, said “I felt we were meant to be together, and we decided to spend the rest of our lives together because we trust and depend on each other more than anyone else,“. Before she stepped down to her wedding, Hyun Young’s 3.5 carat engagement ring became the talk of the town, as it was estimated to be worth somewhere between 200 million to 400 million won (roughly $178,555- $357,110 USD).
When asked if she was happy about her ring, she responded, “I plan to cherish it my whole life”.
On her wedding day, Hyun Young made a beautiful transformation into a swan princess. Wearing a long white gown and tiara, Hyun Young glowed. She and her husband were all smiles as they made their way down the aisle. According to AllKpop, Stars that attended Hyun Young’s wedding included: Jung Jun Ha, Kim Jung Min, Jang Young Ran, Bada, Park Jung Ah, Yoo Chae Young, Jung Hyung Don, Son Ho Young, Hong Suk Chun, Jang Nara, Boom, Jewelry, Sunny Hill, ALi, Noel and so many more.
Currently, the couple has one son who was born on August 16, 2012. Back then, through her agency, it was revealed “Hyun Young this morning at a hospital in Gangnam gave birth to her baby. It was reported that both the mother and child are said to be in good condition.”
Hyun Young also revealed that she was already pregnant on her wedding day, and this stirred up much interest. She said, “I was really cautious, especially because of my family to reveal that I was pregnant, so I did not reveal it.” When she revealed the news of her marriage back in January, she denied that she was pregnant.
In order to focus on taking care of herself and her baby, Hyung Young was on a hiatus from her activities starting in April 2012. She continued to focus on caring for her child for 3 or 4 years later.
Hyun Young’s Drugs Scandal
In 2013, Hyun Young and 4 other celebrities were accused for using Propofol, the powerful anesthetic that was responsible for the death of Michael Jackson. They are Park Si-yeon and Lee Seung-yeon, Jang Mi-inae, and Hyun Young.
Police said former TV host Hyun Young admitted to abusing the drug, while actresses Park Si-yeon and Lee Seung-yeon “partially admitted” their offenses. Actress Jang Mi-inae, however, denies the charge.
At first, Hyun was slapped with a W5 million (US$1=W1,098) fine for abusing Propofol 42 times between February and December 2011. The other three were indicted without arrest. But in the end, she was ordered to pay W8 million, without arrest.
Hyun was apparently very cooperative with investigators during this time. Acquaintances advised her to take legal action, but she apparently decided to admit to the offenses, police said.
Hyun told police her doctor omitted the names of other celebrities who were given Propofol from medical records at his clinic, but he would not do the same for her, so she went under her sister’s name. She claims she stopped using the drug when she found out she was pregnant.
