- 'Train to Busan' star Ma Dong Seok announced that he plans to marry his girlfriend Ye Jung Hwa next year
- However, his agency clarified that he won't actually be getting married but rather just wants to get married
- The actor also said that his plans to marry Ye Jung got pushed to next year instead of this year due to his busy schedule
'Train to Busan' actor, Ma Dong Seok said in an interview that he wants to get married next year to his partner, Ye Jung Hwa.
KAMI found out from entertainment website, Koreaboo, that during an event for the '2019 Cannes Film Festival,' the 48-year-old actor surprised the Korean press when he stated his plans to get married. Ma Dong Seok said:
I wanted to get married this year but it got pushed to next year because of my busy schedule. Director Kim Yong Hwa told me to get married fast if I want to have kids. I've been hearing all things about having children from director Kim Yong Hwa lately.
Right after he released this statement, his agency dismissed this and explained what he really meant with what he said.
According to his agency, the actor just "wants to get married" but does not necessarily means he will actually be getting married next year. In a statement, the agency said:
A question about his marriage came up at a casual setting with reporters at Cannes, and he said that he wanted to get married as quickly as possible, even next year. He was not speaking about specific wedding plans. Ma Dong Seok is currently continuing his good relationship with Ye Jung Hwa. We would like to state that their marriage has not been confirmed, and it will be announced through official channels when confirmed. Thank you so much for your interest and support.
Ma Dong Seok is a Korean American actor who rose to fame thanks to his role in the movie, 'Train to Busan.' He and Ye Jung Hwa belong to the same agency and met each other because of their interest in exercise. The two Korean stars confirmed they were seeing each other back in 2016.
