Updated April 7 KST:
So Ji Sub wrote a letter to fans after the news of his marriage. The letter is as follows:
Hello, this is So Ji Sub.
Today, I started a new beginning with my life partner. On April 7, 2020, my partner and I were married officially. I’d now like to greet everyone as an actor and someone who has become the head of a household.
I’m afraid that everyone must be very surprised by this news. However, this is one of the most important decisions in my life that took so long to make, and so I hope that everyone will support and encourage me just as you have supported and believed in me for a long time.
I have a heavy heart because I’m announcing my marriage at a time that’s difficult for everyone, but I will always live with gratitude, and I will try my best to be a better actor.
I hope everyone stays healthy, and I’ll see you all soon.
Thank you always.
From, So Ji Sub.
Actor So Ji Sub is now legally married!
On April 7, the actor’s agency shared the following statement:
Hello. This is 51K.
Today we are relaying joyful news about our actor So Ji Sub that is worth celebrating.
So Ji Sub has met someone valuable to him and has tied the knot.
The couple that announced their relationship in 2019 promised to become partners for life with trust and love for each other, and they became a legal couple today, April 7, as they registered their marriage.
Following the wishes of So Ji Sub and Jo Eun Jung who want to quietly cherish the most important and happy moment of their lives, they decided to hold a quiet wedding with only their immediate families, and to provide at least a bit of comfort and hope in this time when everyone is experiencing difficulty, donate 50 million won to Good Neighbors and provide tablets and smart devices to children who lack educational support.
We express gratitude to everyone who loves and supports So Ji Sub, and in consideration for his non-celebrity spouse, we ask for your generous understanding of not being able to reveal details regarding their marriage.
We ask for blessings towards the couple that is beginning a new life.
So Ji Sub will continue to give back with greater activities as an actor.
When asked by News1, 51K also explained further, “So Ji Sub is not young, and they naturally decided on marriage after seeing each other with positive feelings,” and added, “It is not a shotgun marriage.”
Jo Eun Jung made her television debut as a reporter for various gaming programs on OGN, and she continued her career as a reporter on SBS’s “E-news Exclusive,” through which she interviewed So Ji Sub in 2018. She left the program later that year.
Congratulations to the couple!
