Korean actors Bae Yong Joon, 42, and Park Soo Jin, 29, are getting married later this year.
KeyEast Entertainment, the agency which represents both actors, made the announcement on their website on Thursday, saying that the two will be tying the knot this fall.
Bae, best known for his role in the drama Winter Sonata, started dating Park in February. Park was a member of K-pop girl group Sugar from 2001 to 2006 and started acting in 2007.
Though the two have not been dating for long, they “have many things in common”, said the agency.
KeyEast also revealed that Bae was attracted to the actress’s bright personality and thoughtfulness while the 29-year-old singer-turned-actress was attracted to Bae’s warmth and sensitivity.
Both families have given the marriage their approval though the details of the wedding have yet to be settled.
