Gong Yoo and Kang Dong Won… related?
The family (in-law) relationship between popular actors Gong Yoo and Kang Dong Won has recently come to light.
Kang Dong Won has recently given interviews mentioning his family ties to Gong Yoo, explaining, “Gong Yoo’s grandfather and my grandfather were close friends since childhood, and vowed kinship as each other’s family.”
Kang Dong Won first mentioned the information at a 2005 fanmeeting for actress Ha Ji Won, before the release of his move Duelist. He revealed that he’d only come to know of the kinship the year before, although he has not explained the details of how the relationship came to be.
Apparently, that wasn’t exactly considered newsworthy back then, but now that Kang Dong Won’s more visible from his recently released film M, and Gong Yoo has shot to fame with Coffee Prince, it suddenly seems more interesting, doesn’t it?
