Aww to old bachelors finally getting hitched. Shin Hyun-joon (Gaksital, Oohlala Spouses) has announced that he’ll be getting married, and will put a period on his bachelorhood come May 26. His bride is a Korean-American gyopo 12 years his junior (he’s 44, so that makes her 32), which means she’s not a celebrity; she’s a music major and the couple has been dating since last year.
I love that the celeb responses are pretty much echoes of our own (as the collective fandom, I mean): “I thought he’d be alone forever. Congrats congrats!” (Im Hyung-joon). “Hallelujah~ I’m so glad. Congratulations, truly. Welcome to the married life” (Kim Won-hee). Haha. Why is it that once a guy hits late thirties, he practically has the whole country on a mission to marry him off?
Shin Hyun-joon also tweeted the news himself on the 16th, and is in the thick of wedding preparations. The ceremony will take place at Seoul’s Grand Hyatt Hotel (a popular celeb wedding spot), and you can bet it’ll be attended by a who’s who of the entertainment industry.
