The actor regularly steals the hearts of his fans because of his fierceness, but who here knows he has the most romantic love for his non-celebrity wife? Jang Hyuk’s wife is a dancer named Kim Yeo-jin, who is two years older than he is. Now they are blessed with two sons and one daughter, who were born in 2008, 2009, and 2015.
Many people are jealous of their union, and now they know about their history of getting together because the way that they got together might only happen in a drama. Curious enough? Let’s find out more!
Jang Hyuk and His Wife Met For The First Time In A Gym
On the MBC talk show “Knee Drop Guru,” Jang Hyuk shared a touching story about how he met his wife for the first time in a gym.
Jang Hyuk met his wife around 2002 when he was working out in a gym with his fellow actor friends. They bumped into each other on the stairs when Yeo-jin walked out from the gym’s shower room. “I was walking down the stairs while she was coming up, and I had a weird feeling,” said Jang Hyuk.
From that time, he found out that she was a professional dancer who was also teaching in that gym. He went to the jazz dance class with 40 women in it, with the intention to become acquainted with the instructor, Kim Yeo-jin, but unfortunately, it didn’t work.
Jang Hyuk couldn’t get her out of his mind, so he asked the director of the movie that he was acting in at the time, Please Teach Me English, to include a dancing scene. When the director approved Jang Hyuk’s idea, he asked Kim Yeo-jin to recommend a tap dance instructor for the movie. He recommended Kim Yeo-jin, and they naturally developed their relationship and began dating.
Good job, Jang Hyuk!
Serving in the Military, Jang Hyuk Asked His Wife To Wait For Him Before Marrying Her
Jang Hyuk told his wife Kim Yeo-jin that if she would wait for him who was in the military for two years, he would marry her. Surprisingly, Kim Yeo-jin had patiently waited for Jang Hyuk to finish his military duty!
But, their plan to take an oath at the altar faced an obstacle. Jang Hyuk’s parents and the agency did not give their approval. Once again, Jang Hyuk thought of a brilliant way to get out of this problem. He revealed, “…So we left on a trip together planning on getting pregnant. We just did it without permission,” and he added, “It was God’s Trick.”

What happened after that? His plan worked. Not only did they get married after dating for six years, but also everyone around them started to support them together. “I feel bad for my parents now, but my trick worked. The day a son was born, everything changed. They told me to move out of the way as soon as they saw their grandson,” he said.
Jang Hyuk and Kim Yeo-jin’s hard work to fight for their love finally paid off.
Jang Hyuk and His Wife Finally Married
Jang Hyuk and Kim Yeo-jin finally got married. The ceremony was held on June 2, 2008, at the Imperial Palace hotel in Nonhyon-dong, Seoul. The wedding was closed to the public in order to respect Kim Yeo-jin’s family and their friends, who are non-celebrities.
The wedding was attended by 600 friends and relatives. Some of their fellow celebrity friends and acquaintances were present at the wedding, such as Cha Tae-hyun and Hong Kyung-min, who hosted the wedding, while singer Kim Jong-kook sang his song Night, Wind, Sunlight, and Love to congratulate the couple on their wedding.
Jang Hyuk expressed his happiness for his wedding with a little abashment:
“This is a big event in my life, and I’m excited yet nervous at the same time. It’s pretty embarrassing to have our marriage ceremony after we had our baby. But it’s even more meaningful. As a husband, as a father, for my lovely wife and children, I truly understand that I have to work doubly hard to maintain this happy family.”
However, there’s nothing to be ashamed of, as long as they believe in and love each other that much. People will have to give their support. Netizens congratulated them, saying, “Hope that you have everlasting happiness.”
