Tang Wei to wed Korean director

Chinese actress Tang Wei announced Wednesday that she will wed Korean director Kim Tae-yong, whom she has been dating since last year.

BEIJING: Chinese “Lust, Caution” actress Tang Wei announced Wednesday that she will wed a Korean man ten years her senior, reported Chinese media.

And he isn’t any hunky actor, but 44-year-old Korean director Kim Tae-yong.

"We came to know each other through film. Then we were friends before becoming lovers.

“We decided to get married, though we will both have to learn a different language. But these difficult moments will also be our happiest,” said the pair in a joint statement.

The two apparently hit it off after working together on the 2010 film “Late Autumn” and started dating in October last year.

Their wedding will be a low-key affair and will be held later this year.

In response to media queries, Tang’s representative said that “as far as I know, Tang Wei isn’t pregnant and will not be reducing her workload”.
