On May 2nd, on her personal page, actress Go So Young shared images of her and Jang Dong Gun enjoying a meal together to celebrate their wedding anniversary. She wrote: “Our 13th wedding anniversary”.
In addition, Go So Young also shared images of the family on vacation. The couple’s son, Jang Min Joon, is currently 13 years old, and their daughter, Jang Yoon Seol, is tall and slender. Go So Young did not reveal the faces of the children, only taking photos from behind.
Both Jang Dong Gun and his wife have turned 51 years old but still maintain a youthful appearance. This is a rare appearance of the actor since the scandal involving derogatory text messages about women’s appearances.
In January 2020, Jang Dong Gun’s nearly three-decade-long reputation collapsed due to a personal scandal. Prior to the sex scandal, he was considered the most exemplary man in the Korean showbiz industry, with a successful career and happy marriage.
At that time, the actor born in 1972 did not speak out to explain. While his wife, Go So Young, disabled comments on her personal page. A close source revealed that Go So Young was disappointed and cold towards her husband because of the scandal.
Faced with public boycott, Jang Dong Gun withdrew from artistic activities and retreated into hiding. Former entertainment journalist Kim Yong Ho revealed that the actor suffered from severe insomnia and had to take medication after the scandal broke.
In March 2022, the actor took on the role of the wedding host at the wedding of Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin, but there were no images of Jang Dong Gun’s appearance. In mid-May 2022, Go So Young posted photos of her and Jang Dong Gun reuniting with Kwon Sang Woo.
Jang Dong Gun was famous for his roles in movies such as Doctor Brothers, A Gentleman’s Dignity, The Coast Guard, Taegukgi: The Brotherhood of War, and Typhoon.
Jang Dong Gun and Go So Young met in the early 1990s when they collaborated on the film A Love Song in the Wind. In 2010, they got married, with the actress being four months pregnant at the time.
After the wedding, Go So Young focused on business, opening a fashion brand alongside taking care of their two young children. Since the scandal, Jang Dong Gun has not received any new projects until now.
