Korean actor Sung Joon has confirmed that he is married and has a child, in a letter written to fans.
His agency, O& Entertainment, shared a statement on February 3, confirming that prior to military enlistment, Sung Joon was in a relationship with a non-celebrity. They married after the birth of their child and before his enlistment in December 2018.
In his letter to fans, Sung Joon wrote:
"Around the time of my enlistment, I went through big changes in my life and had happy things happen. I found someone I love and who i want to spend the rest of my life with. We were happily planning out our wedding when we heard that we'd be having a baby...
One year has passed, and out of concern for my wife, who has to do everything on her own without me, I requested a chance in assignment and have begun the remainder of my military service as a full-time reserve".
The actor expressed regret for not sharing the new immediately at the time and hoped fans would understand his story and his desire to be a good head of the household.
You can read a full translation of his letter on Soompi.
Sung Joon has been in the military since December 2018. He's best known for his lead roles in K-dramas like Flower Band, High Society and I Need Romance 3.
