Jang Hyuk Wife Pictures.html
Jang Hyuk and his wife are now the proud parents of three children.
According to the Korean media outlet Newsen, the actor"s wife Kim Yeo Jin, gave birth to a healthy daughter on April 16, which was very close to her due date. The daughter rounds out the family as the actor and his wife already have two sons, born in 2008 and 2009.
According to his agency Sidus HQ, the actor is very happy to have a daughter. And he has reasons to be happy about the timing of the birth.
"He is scheduled to go to China to film a movie, but thankfully, he was able to witness the birth of his child before he left," said the Sidus HQ representative.
Jang took a few weeks off from his acting schedule to help his wife prepare for the birth, but he now has to get back to work.
In a 2014 interview with enewsworld, Jang said that his marriage made him more warm-hearted and enabled him to play characters that seemed more human.
His 17-year acting career has seen some transformations. At first he specialized in playing cold-hearted characters and starring in action films. He was so good at action scenes that he occasionally performed his own stunts and taught others how to do them.
When he appeared in the rom-com "Fated To Love You" with Jang Nara and Choi Jin Hyuk, he played a man who unexpectedly becomes a father and eventually falls in love with the baby"s mother. He made a very convincing and appealing father figure.
Jang followed his success in that comedy with another successful drama "Shine Or Go Crazy" with co-star Oh Yeon Seo. He rounded out the year by taking a role in the film "Empire of Lust," with co-stars Shin Ha Kyun and Kang Ha Neul.
Jang credits his wife with not only making him more compassionate but with staying by his side through some tough times.
He met his Pilates instructor wife at a fitness center in 2002. Jang Hyuk and Kim Yeo Jin dated for six years before marrying in 2008.
In a 2013 interview with Cosmopolitan magazine the actor said that his children are a priority in their marriage.
"After we got married and had children, when we talked, we talked about children, family and the people around us, and not so much about ourselves."
Now they have one more child to talk about.
Jang Hyuk and his wife are expecting their third child this month. The couple already has two children.
His agency Sidus HW told the Korea Herald that Jang Hyuk"s wife Kim Yeo Jin is currently visiting a gynecologist in Gangnam in preparation for the birth.
"The baby is expected in the middle of April."
Jang Hyuk met his two-year-older wife, Kim Yeo Jin, in 2002 at a fitness center. Kim was his Pilates instructor. At the time of his wedding he released a press release saying why Kim Yeo Jin was the woman for him. She stood by her man when the going got tough, he said.
"2004 was a really difficult year for me, but she was with me," said Jang Hyuk. "She supported me in my difficult times and I can"t even find the words to describe how thankful and moved I am."
The couple married in 2008 and had their first child the same year. A second child was born in 2009.
In a 2013 interview with Cosmopolitan magazine the actor admitted that things he did change after the couple had their children. Family became a priority.
"After we got married and had children, when we talked, we talked about children, family and the people around us, and not so much about ourselves."
But when they do have time to spend together, Jang Hyuk said he falls in love with his wife all over again
According to Sidus HQ, the actor is currently taking time out from his busy schedule to help his wife prepare for the birth. It has been a busy year for Jang Hyuk, who starred in "Fated To Love You" and is now experiencing success as the star of "Shine Or Go Crazy."
2015 has turned out to be a boom year for celebrity babies as Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung just had their first child and actors Ji Sung and Lee Bo Young are also waiting on the birth of their first child.
It has been reported that actor Jang Hyuk and his wife are expecting their third child together!
According to a broadcast official on April 2, Jang Hyuk’s wife, Kim Yeo Jin, recently became pregnant with the couple’s third baby.
It is said that she has been making visits to an OB-GYN clinic to pay close attention to the health and prenatal care for her and the baby. The source also shared that Jang Hyuk has been devoting himself to taking care of his wife in the midst of his busy schedule. The baby’s delivery is expected to be around the end of this year.
The actor tied the knot with his two years older ballerina wife in June of 2008. The couple had their first son earlier that year in February, and welcomed their second son together in November of 2009.
Congratulations to the couple!
Jang Hyuk Felt Peculiar(??) Upon First Seeing His Wife Jang Hyuk reveals on 'Knee Drop Guru' that he felt awkward upon meeting his wife for the first time.
On MBC's entertainment program 'Golden Fishery Knee Drop Guru' that aired on August 8, Jang Hyuk said, 'I used to frequent the gym with Kim Soo Ro, where my wife was working as an instructor. I saw some woman walking up the stairs, and I felt weird.'
He explained, 'She taught pilates and jazz dance,' and 'So that's why I decided to join the jazz dance class with 40 other women.' He said, 'My wife thought I looked like a pure soul when she first saw me,' eliciting envious chills from the audience.
On this episode of 'Knee Drop Guru' ZE:A's Park Hyung Sik made a surprise appearance as a guest.
Jang Hyuk appeared on the February 23 episode of tvN’s “Location Talk TAXI” and talked about how he met his wife.
He began with, “My wife taught Jazz Pilates at the gym I work out. I saw her and decided to sign up for Pilates.”
“I had a crush on her and had joined the class. But there were 41 women and only one other man. I believe that the man there had the same intentions that I had. We all had to wear tights and the other guy couldn’t handle it, and left within a week. It wasn’t easy wearing tights.”
“I stayed with it for 3 months. After 3 months there was a get together and I paid for everything. That day I got her phone number and began to date her. I tried to make the situation seem like it was all coincidence.”
When asked what attracted him about his wife, Jang Hyuk answered, “I ran into my wife when she was coming out of the showers. That feeling was great. If the typical speed of a movie is 24 frames it felt like 2400 frames.”
He ended by saying, “I feel sorry for my wife. She is older than me, (two years older) and it probably wasn’t easy raising our kids when we were going through a rough patch. Sometimes for filming I would not be at home for a whole week. Then, my wife had to take care of the children on her own.”
Jang Hyuk is about to act in another historical drama. It"s not that fans are complaining. He looks good in a ponytail. But that is a lot of historical dramas in a row.
Is he really that fond of saeguks?
According to a recent interview in the Korean magazine Singles, its less a matter of preferring historical roles but more about choosing roles that he really likes.
And he keeps getting offered good historical ones.
When asked about his role as Chun Bong Sam in "God of Trade - Innkeeper 2015" he said it was the character that convinced him. And before that it was the characters in the drama "Shine Or Go Crazy" and the film "Empire of Lust."
"It might have been too much to star in three historical dramas in a row, but the original characters were interesting, so I did not want to decline them," said Jang.
His "God of Trade" character Chun Bong Sam starts as a peddler and rebuilds the ruined Cheon Family Inn, ultimately becoming the wealthiest merchant in Joseon. And he does it all while dealing with people in an ethical manner. That does sound interesting.
But even before "Shine or Go Crazy" Jang was called the "King of the Saeguk" because he played his saeguk roles so well.
Jang played the slave hunter Lee Dae Gil in "Chuno: The Slave Hunters." Lee Dae Gil"s noble family was ruined. After enduring a harsh life the character became a slave hunter.
In "Deep-Rooted Tree" he played Ddol Bok, a slave who finds a way into palace life because he wants revenge.
In the 2015 drama "Shine or Go Crazy," he played the cursed prince Wang So. A prophecy exiled the prince from the palace.
And in the same year that he played the real-life Prince Lee Bang Won in the film "Empire of Lust." Lee Bang Won helped his father overthrow the Goryeo Dynasty and found the Joseon dynasty, but he was passed over in the line of succession. So many actors have played the prince that every new portrayal offers a different slant on his motives.
At the film"s press conference Jang explained his reasons for taking the role that so many other actors had played. It was hardly an original character but he hoped to shed new light on the real-life historical figure.
"When people think of Lee Bang Won, they picture a strong-willed, ambitious and rational figure," he said. "I tried to highlight the emotional side of the character and illustrate different aspects of him, in contrast to previous depictions."
Whether he is playing a fictional character or reinterpreting a real-life role, one reason Jang likes historical roles is the chance to ride horses. It"s a hobby he enjoys in his spare time.
"God of Trade" will air in September.
