Top Hallyu actress Jun Ji Hyun’s pregnancy announcement in July last year came as a complete surprise to her fans as the actress made no effort to hide from the limelight.
At that time, she was seen actively promoting her movie, “Assassinations”, despite being 10 weeks pregnant. As part of her promotional activities, she also conducted about 50 interviews with various media outlets. Imagine that!
Fans were relieved, nevertheless, that Jun Ji Hyun and her banker husband Choi Joon Hyuk were about to welcome their new bundle of joy.
Jun Ji Hyun (전지현) is one of the top actresses and CF model in South Korea. She first broke into the international market with her role as “The Girl” in 2001’s romantic comedy, “My Sassy Girl”, one of the highest-grossing South Korean comedies of all time.
She is also known for her role in fantasy romance K-Drama “My Love From The Star”, in which she starred alongside Kim Soo Hyun. The series was a ratings success, sparking trends in fashion, make-up and restaurants. Jun Ji Hyun won the Daesang (or “Grand Prize”), the highest award for television, at the 2014 Baeksang Arts Awards and the 2014 SBS Drama Awards.
Now, she can add “Mother” to her long list of accomplishments! Korean media outlet Sports Chosun confirmed this week that Jun Ji Hyun has given birth to a son, 4 year after marrying Choi Joon Hyuk. Upon the news of the birth, fans flooded the actress with congratulatory messages, with many anticipating the boy to grow up tall and handsome thanks to his parents’ superior genes.
There hasn’t been any pictures of her baby boy as at time of writing but word has it that the 35-year-old actress is currently recuperating in a high-end confinement centre in Seoul. The centre, which is close to her home, boasts luxurious facilities and professional staff, including a hotel-trained chef who prepares the guests’ daily meals. The centre also has strict security measures in place to protect the privacy of it guests.
But we bet that it won’t be long now before she uploads some uber adorable photos of him ;)
Congratulations, Jun Ji Hyun <3
