The source explained that the parents of the Hallyu star and his actress girlfriend Ko So-young recently met and settled on a date for a wedding in May. Jang is expected to tell fans about the news at his fan meeting on March 6.
Another source said the two stars, making preparations for the marriage, are in the process of closing a deal on their new house in Seoul’s Heukseuk-dong where they will move into immediately after holding their nuptials.
Jang, one of Korea’s top actors who starred in numerous television dramas and movies, made headlines last November after admitting to his two-year romantic relationship with Ko.
The two stars had long sparked dating rumors since they appeared together in 1999 film “Love Wind, Love Song” but it was not until last fall that they officially announced their status as a couple.
The actors were then dogged by wedding rumors which they denied several times saying “there are no detailed plans for a wedding”.
Jang is scheduled to start shooting the Kang Je-gyu pic “My Way” in June after the wedding.
