New brides become new moms
Add two more high-profile actresses to the list of the recently knocked-up. (Kim Hee-sun announced her happy news in May and is currently three months pregnant; comedienne Park Kyung-lim announced hers, due January 2009, last month; and frequent variety-show host Kang Ho-dong becomes a father in March.)
“Queen of Cannes” Jeon Do-yeon (so called because of her Best Actress win at Cannes last year for Secret Sunshine) has just announced she is three months pregnant, and planning to give birth next February. Jeon was married last year to a businessman, and has just finished shooting her next project, the Lee Yoon-ki film My Dear Enemy [멋진 하루], which co-stars Ha Jung-woo.
Then there’s also newlywed TV actress Park Eun-hye (Yi San), who was married in April and has also just announced her pregnancy. Hers is the earliest of the bunch, currently only in its tenth week. Congrats to all, and I guess we can all expect to hear a bunch of birth announcements early next year.
