Mainland Chinese actress Tang Wei (湯唯) recently announced her engagement to South Korean director Kim Tae Yong, whom she met when filming Late Autumn <晚秋> in 2009. The two plan to hold their wedding ceremony in the fall.
On July 2, Tang Wei’s management company announced that the Lust, Caution <色，戒> actress had gotten engaged to South Korean director Kim Tae Yong. The couple first met on the set of Late Autumn, a 2010 English-language film that Kim directed and adapted from a classic Korean melodrama. Tang Wei later won nine Best Actress awards in Korea for her role.
The two fell in love in 2013 when Tang Wei was in Korea filming a commercial. Both she and Kim have received their parents’ blessing and approval for the union. “Although we both have to learn a foreign language, this is the happiest time in our lives,” the couple wrote in their engagement statement. “We both believe that this will allow us to understand, respect, and appreciate the other more.”
Tang Wei’s spokesperson, Anna, revealed that a decision has not yet been made regarding where the couple will settle down after the marriage. She added, “As far as I know, Tang Wei is not pregnant, nor will she cut down on work.”
Kim Tae Yong was born in Seoul in 1969 and is ten years Tang Wei’s senior. The two were spotted together at the Busan International Film Festival in November 2012, but claimed to be merely friends at the time.
Tang Wei has previously been romantically linked to mainland Chinese actor Wu Xiubo (吳秀波), Korean actor Hyun Bin, and Super Boys <快樂男聲> contestant-turned-advertiser Hu Jing (胡璟).
