Han Ji-hye announces her engagement
by | August 4, 2010 | 42 Comments

Whoa, congrats to Han Ji-hye! The actress (Like the Moon Escaping From Clouds, My Boyfriend Is Type B) has revealed that she will marry next month in Hawaii with her boyfriend, identified only as Mr. A.

The relationship was made public in 2009, but Han has done a pretty good job of keeping her private life quiet. Her fiancรฉ is six years older than her and works as a public prosecutor in a district office. The two met at a church gathering in January of 2009 (Han is reportedly a devout Christian).

Han said, “After living only for myself, living together and for another person is what marriage is about. I’ve met a partner that I can share my life with. As we live, we’ll encounter days that are rainy and windy. We’ll need umbrellas and coats — that’s what we will be to each other. No matter what unpaved roads we encounter in life, I will not let go of this hand, I vow to you all. I ask for lots of encouragement that I may live a happy life.”

The wedding will take place on September 21 at a hotel in Hawaii.

    I’m happy for her but at the same time, it’s such a pity that Lee Dong Gun and her are broken up. They were a very sweet couple. Can’t help but wonder what lead to the break-up!

    Anyway, I wish her all the happiness in life.

      Well…her soon engagement and wedding sounds strange…does she really loved him ( LDG ) ? And rhetorical question does she love that new man ?….

  2. jm126

    I agree! I loved them together

    Man, too many ppl are either engaged or getting married. 2010 must be romantic. ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. chajjye

    and i like the way she phrase her sentence. it’s cheesy but nice. XD

  5. Dele

    I love how she put what marriage would be like. We all need someone to keep the rain at bay, and keep us from getting soaked. Good luck to her:)

  6. anna

    Kind of suck to be the ex-bf in this situation. Why him and not me kind of thing. Anyway, LDG already moved on, congrats to her.

  7. Brittany

    Ahh, I love Han Ji Hye. I hope her marriage is successful and full of bliss.

    i don’t know if it’s because of the language difference, but when korean celebs release things like this, their words often strike me as poignant and reflective and poetic, almost— things that other celebs from other hollywood etc are not really wont to do. well, some do, i guess. but they’re few and far between. i like it. go, korea ๐Ÿ˜€ lol

  9. xiaoSxin

    o wow.. bless her and her future husband!

    is Hawaii very popular wedding location for Koreans?

  13. 13 so random

    I’m going to be so broken hearted when I re-watch Sweet18 now. Congrats to her though.

  16. 16 Yvonne

    I am happy for her! (But I do miss the days when she was still w/LDG…) *sigh*

  17. 17 rway

    i am a big fan and i am glad she found some one who makes her say such cheesy lines i wish her all the best she is very sweet

  20. 20 kaedejun


    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! (yes i am a selfish fan)

    when i first saw the headline i couldn’t believe it. congrats to her for finding happiness but OH i feel for lee dong gun (i think a part of me STILL wished that they could get back together sigh*)

    anyways – lol, she finally learned her lesson about having a public relationship and managed to keep this one under wraps.

  21. 21 allmessedup

    mixed feelings – sad, because this will finally put paid to my dreams of her and LDG getting back together again. but happy too, because she sounds happy. only someone who is so happy and so in love can say something as cheesy as what she said but still sound so sincere and content.

    wish her a successful married life…………

  22. 22 Tha

    DITTO!!!! WITH #20. I always thought in some way shape or form that HJH and LDG would be back together and forever too!!!! Is it bad if I still wished that?!?!?!

  23. 23 annie

  29. 29 jing

    Wasn’t this an excerpt from her book (or is it photobook) released months back? Wow…. I had a feeling this sort of announcement is going to happen.

    Congrats to Jihye!!!! Hope she and Mr. A will live in marital bliss forever and ever.
