Hwang Jung Eum Kim Yong Jun
Part of the fun of watching the variety show "We Got Married" isseeing celebrities coupled up and wondering if the relationship willcontinue after the show.
Although actress Hwang Jung Eum and singer Kim Yong Jun were alreadydating before they appeared on the show in 2009, they excelled atpretending to be married in front of a big audience. They often hadfights but made up quickly, making them an audience favorite.
That's apparently a recipe for relationship success, since four years later their relationship is still going strong.
The relationship has weathered busy career schedules, a scandal,Kim's absence due to military service and the actress having to kissattractive actors as part of her drama roles.
The couple appeared on "We Got Married" when the show decided to try something new by adding real-life couples.
Hwang, who debuted with the kpop girl group Sugar, became awell-known actress after she appeared in the sitcom, "High Kick Throughthe Roof." After that she had roles in "Giant," Can't You Hear MyHeart?" and most recently in "Incarnation of Money."
Kim Yong Jun is a member of the ballad trio SG Wannabee, whose firstalbum, "Timeless," quickly jumped to the top of the charts. The couplemet in 2006, around the time SG Wannabee released their third album,"The Third Masterpiece."
The couple almost broke up once when Hwang was said to be seeingactor Daniel Choi while they filmed "High Kick Through The Roof."
The false rumors created problems for both actors but Hwang managed to convince Kim that it wasn't true.
During Kim's military service, which began last year, the two managed to see each other as often as they could.
When asked if it was difficult to be apart, she said, "We've beendating for seven years now. We've surpassed the 'I miss you if I don'tsee you every single day stage.' It's more than love now; it's a strongfriendship. He feels like family."
But feeling like family apparently doesn't stop him from gettingjealous. When Kim found out that Hwang had to kiss a fellow actor in thedrama "Incarnation of Money," he asked her, "How come you didn't tellme that you had a kiss scene?"
He called her "evil" for not telling him but that only made herlaugh. It's a good thing their relationship is so strong that they canlaugh about love scenes since the actress is sure to have many more ofthem.
