MANILA, Philippines – South Korean actor and singer Kim Hyun-joong and his non-showbiz wife are expecting a child, his agency Henecia announced on Thursday, July 21.

Between performances, Kim Hyun-joong revealed that he had decided to “spend the rest of his life” with a special someone.
His agency assured fans that the artist would continue releasing new music and doing promotions.
Kim Hyun-joong made his K-pop idol debut in 2005 with the group SS501. He then ventured into acting and became well known for his roles in the 2009 series Boys Over Flowers and the 2010 series Playful Kiss.
The Korean star visited Manila as a solo musician in 2020 for his Bio-Rhythm tour. – with reports from Bea Bertuldo/Rappler.com
