Hwang Jung Eum and Kim Yong Joon started dating in 2006 and even appeared on the MBC virtual marriage show ,”We Got Married,” in 2009 drawing attention for being a real couple.
In an interview in October 2014, Hwang Jung Eum had stated, “I can’t live without Yong Joon but often we tell each other, ‘You’re not my marriage counterpart.’ Yet we also say, ‘When are we getting married?’ We say that to each other and think that if we do decide to marry ,then we do it, and if we end up breaking up, we break up. I sometimes don’t like his behavior but I still like him.”
Notably, Hwang Jung Eum was once part of the idol girl group called Sugar, from which Park Soo Jin also hails from. Earlier it was announced that Park Soo Jin will be marrying actor Bae Yong Joon after dating for only about three months.
