Neos Entertainment has announced on the afternoon of November 17th that musical actor Jang Seung Jo and Lina (Lee Ji Yeon) from SM Entertainment girl group The Grace will be tying the knot at the end of this month.
Jang Seung Jo and Lina met during “The Wolf’s Temptation” run in 2011, in which both stars were cast. Rumors of the two dating spread earlier this year, but were put down when both stars’ agencies denied the rumors, and said they were just close friends.
Lina debuted as part of SM Entertainment’s girl group The Grace. The group released their single “Too Good” in 2005. Their latest release as a full group dates back to 2009, while a sub-unit consisting out of members Sunday and Dana was revealed in 2011. Jang Seung Jo is generally known for his various musical roles, but has recently also appeared on the small screen, taking on roles in the 4th season of drama series “God’s Quiz”. He is currently starring in the Korean version of Japan’s “Liar Game”.
The wedding will take place on November 22nd. Both the musical star and pop group member have expressed that the event will be held privately, and that they wish for intimate festivities with the people that are important to them. Netizens have responded to the news with comments such as “Congratulations, live a happy life!”, clearly showing their support for this newly revealed marriage.
This news comes right after the confirmation of Lina’s labelmate Super Junior’s Sungmin’s marriage, as he will be tying the knot with musical actress Kim Sa Eun next month. Their wedding invitation was also recently revealed.
