Kim Kang-woo to become a father
Kim Kang-woo (Story of a Man) married quietly earlier this year, and now he’s announced that he and his wife are expecting their first child. They married in June after a seven-year courtship, having been introduced by friends in 2003. This also means that actress Han Hye-jin (Jejoongwon) will be an aunt — his wife is her older sister.
A representative from Kim’s management company, Namoo Actors, stated on the 8th that the couple is three months into the pregnancy, which puts the expected delivery date sometime in spring. Kim is generally protective of his privacy, so there were some at his management company who didn’t even know the truth until the reports leaked to the press: “He’s amazed at how the news got out, but he’s extremely happy at becoming a father.”
Most recently, Kim starred in the action-thriller film Invincible, a remake of the classic Hong Kong noir A Better Tomorrow, which he follows with upcoming maritime-police drama Poseidon, where he’ll play Eric’s main rival and friend in an elite team of counterterrorism agents. Can’t wait for all the bromancey goodness to come — surely it will come, right? I mean, frenemies/rivals on the same military team? It’s Maverick and Iceman, yo, to a tee. Can you play volleyball at sea?
Poseidon is aiming to air early next year and is currently filming.
