Top stars Jang Dong-gun and wife Go So-young have welcomed their first child into the world, a baby boy born on the morning of October 4 at a Kangnam hospital in Seoul.

According to the stars’ management, the boy weighed in at 3.23 kg. Jang was at his wife’s side for the delivery, and both mother and child are reportedly healthy and well. Their son just missed sharing a birthday with mom, who turns 38 two days later on October 6. (Jang is 38.)

The couple married on May 2 this year after announcing that they were expecting. Given that Jang is practically the most popular Korean actor, like, ever, the event was a veritable who’s who of the biggest names in the Korean entertainment industry.

Congrats to the happy family! Man, is that kid gonna be gorgeous or what?

    Great news, but I can’t help noticing how pasty white her face makeup is. Tsk tsk MUA.

    • 2.1 ohyehbb

      i was just thinking that! looks like she’s wearing a mask. I know that Korea (Asia in general, I guess) is all about that white skin, but come on!

      • 2.1.1 amita

        i saw that too!! i mean, its like really obviously not the right makeup color for her..

        • sweetkiss

          maybe it has spf? spf in foundation makes ur face whiter cuz of the light reflection in flash photography

      • 2.1.2 blusky

        it must be the popular BB cream? 🙂

        • Laica

          not to sound ignorant, but… what’s BB cream?

          • :D

            it’s kinda like a foundation, but not

    Hope the kid is healthy. 38 years old is kind of old when it comes to having a child.

      My mom was that age when she had me and I graduated top of my class last year in college, so I think you don’t have to worry about that 😉

    • 3.2 ata

      MY mum had me when she was 36 and i’m her 5th child out of 7 children. It’s not uncommon in Asia where married women had children until they reach menopause.

      • 3.2.1 Laica

        It is more risky to have your first child so late, though. I’m glad the mother and baby seem healthy. 🙂

  4. shelly

    i can’t even begin to fathom how gorgeous the baby will be @_@
    happy for them =)

  5. its serious

    the boy is gonna be extremely gorgeous, like his daddy!!!


  6. RunLolaRun

    I didn’t even know she was pregnant.

    • 6.1 lambayyx

      of course she’s pregnant, they never get married unless the woman is pregnant

      • 6.1.1 Pela

        Maybe I’m being ignorant here but really?? Do these actors not commit unless there is a baby on the way?

  7. Jenju

    Oh wow… I can only imagine. Can’t wait to see the purity baby!

    Congrats to the couple!!

  8. v

    JDG was my first Korean actor crush, so I was a little bit sad when he finally got married ( hehe silly I know! ).
    They must be hurry to have another baby! Make the world full of beautiful people! 😛

    i am happy they got a boy though i know he wanted a girl. my wish is for junior to have his father’s good looks just like how kwon sang woo’s son looks like him.

  12. 12 aray

    Reading this good news ,I suddenly wish Kim So Yeon my favourite actress to get marry and has adorable babies of her own and live a happy life with her loved one.(Even though I don,t know whether she got a boy friend yet. Is anybody know?

  16. 16 mellowyel

    this is the guy from that Hollywood film “The Warrior’s Way”, right? I so want that movie to be good, but it looks like it’ll be terrible. I haven’t seen Ninja Assassin yet, but from the trailers, the plot lines appear to be the same 😐 *not impressed*

  17. 17 Porcelain

    Congrats oppa… One of my first Korean crush… It feels good to call someone oppa… coz most K-pop guys I like these days are possibly jailbait… >.<

  18. 18 doug

    The baby might not look like either of them, depending on how much surgery they have had…LOL

    • 18.1 mskololia

      lol…that thought crossed my mind too….

  19. 19 diana

    can anyone answer my Q? i know that jang dong gun is a real star in korea,so much so that people literally faint upon spotting him. but may i know why does he exude that kind of power? is it his appearance?his publisity?his work?

    • 19.1 its serious

      my personal opinion, it’s his appearance and his personality.

      His appearance: he might not be in the limelight a lot lately and most of his works lately are the one that required him to be not so good looking, greasy, etc. But when he still acted in dramas back in the 90s until 2000, he was so handsome, truly the most handsome Asian i’ve ever seen. Koreans grew up with him, they know everything about him, watched all his dramas eversince his debut. That’s why, up to now in the eyes of the Koreans he is still the most beloved guy in the industry.

      His personality: I like the way he carries himself, so modest, so humble, so helpful of his friends and juniors, the way he smiles is always so friendly..i dunno, he’s just my macdreamy!!!Go So Young is one hecka lucky lady…grr!

      • 19.1.1 Sonam

        I am so glad such a classy guy is the beloved of Koreans.

  20. 20 Qwenli

    not sure about the good looks but the kid is certainly going to be tall. As long as the baby is healthy, what the heck. Congrats to the couple!

  21. 21 pat

    When will Korea let the celebs date openly. So cruel, really.
    That’s why they do not acknowledge relationships until they have to. Supposedly its bad for their careers. Is the K public that childish or is this a management pressure. US entertainment was like that 60 years ago!

  22. 22 Emily

    He doesn’t age or what? Seriously, He’s getting more and more handsome as year goes by.

  23. 23 miniejungle

    congratulations, Jang Dong Gun Oppa 🙂

  24. 24 Carinne

    Congrats to a pretty couple welcoming parenthood! Now, don’t wait for a 2nd. Pop her out next year! ^ , ^ v

  25. 25 jinny

    girl looks like she feel face first in the flour.
    otherwise, the hottest korean couple, quite possibly the korean brangelina. that baby is gonna be smokin

  26. 26 naquia

    JDG is a daddy ! wow! He was my first Korean love..

  27. 27 Jo
