Jung Yong-joon (born on December 20, 1976), who may be more familiar by his stage name, Jang Hyuk, is a handsome South Korean actor who is widely known for his leading roles in the movies Volcano High (2001), Windstruck (2004), Dance of The Dragon (2008), and so on.
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!
From Puppy Love to Eternal Love
On the MBC talk show “Knee Drop Guru,” Jang Hyuk shared his touching story about how he met his wife and got married.
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 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!
