Lee Dong-gun wants marriage ASAP

Lee Dong-gun (28) wants to get married as soon as possible, even before he enlists for military service, which he says to be sometime next year.

Will you marry me?: Lee Dong-geon wants to get married...quick

The When Night Comes actor reveals: "After recently experiencing an unfortunate incident, I wanted to get married as soon as possible. I'll be going for military service around next year and I want to get married before then."

The "unfortunate incident" he is talking about is the untimely death of his younger brother in Sydney in March this year. Feeling the need to "fill" the place of his missing brother, the actor confesses that he wants to get hitched for his parents' sake - to show them that their remaining son is living well.

"I think if a new person comes into our family, I'll feel more comfortable too," he reasons candidly. "Even for me, I think that a lover or a wife can fill the emptiness I feel."

Lee then goes on to reveal his ideal girl: "Someone who is not famous, has many life experiences, mature and tolerant."

Since the actor has been under the spotlight from a young age, his past relationships have always been with co-workers. His latest ex is actress Han Ji-hye - the pair broke up early this year. He says, "Before, feelings were important, but there was always something that didn't work out."

Introvert: Will it be difficult for Dong-gun to find
someone special because of his nature?


However, the star has a problem. The self-professed introvert dislikes being matched up by a third party and likes being alone. Lee figures that with a personality like that, it will be difficult to meet that special someone.

"I'm not very close with others, and I am also very shy and introverted. So I hope to meet someone who can complete and lead me," he reveals.

"I don't think I am very attracted to people I meet through others. I feel that getting to know a person after meeting them is most important, but on blind dates, there's nothing like that. Thinking about it now, I think it'll be hard to meet a good person (laughs)."

Lee hopes to find a lady who can get along well with his family. After the tragedy, he hopes that his family can find peace again through his marriage.

awww...its sweet - wanting to make sure his parents know he's okay.... I dunno how a girl would feel though...having so much pressure to get along with her inlaws (as obviously pleasing his parents is obviously important to LDG).

Jeez...less than a year, he better get on that pronto!

Nie said...

aww thats so sweet!! It was so sad what happene to him this year, but I'm glad he's recovering and also his family

I like how he's saying he doesn't belive in knowing someone by blind date. I agree that you have to know the person urself so at least you both can get to know each other

That was also sweet when he said he wants someone who can get along with his parents..well who doesn't? lol but she might be a little bit pressured but I think his parents are nice

Thanks for sharing!!!I wish him the best of luck and hope to find the person he will spend his life with!! Hwiating

What' gibberish is this guy spouting?

How is he going to get married soon if he doesnt even have a girlfriend yet. Tsk.

Han Ji-hye was good for him, I reckon. And it looked like theirs was a solid, grounded relationship.

창숙 said...

He should get back with Han Ji-hye. They were cute together.

uhh..i think he needs a therapist more than he needs a wife.
sounds like he really needs some counseling. it wouldn't work out for him...he just looking for someone anyone to fill that void. sad. not sweet.

R. W. said...

I'm not famous! I'll marry him!

Jennifer said...

Where do I sign up?? LoL :)

That's sweet but kinda sad in a way. He should marry out of love and the desire to want to spend the rest of his life together with his significant other. Not someone who he thinks would make his parents happy and replace that someone who was very dear to him. He should take time to heal first and then or at the same time find that someone special. :)

OMG, I went off typing! LoL :P

Well, I wish him the best!

P.S.
He is so good to look at :)

It is very commendable to make sure that your parent are Happy.But I think you are getting married for all the wrong reasons.There is no parent that would allow their child to get married just to make them happy and what girl in their right mind wants to marry you just so you can make your parents happy. There is no such thing as a perfect marriage...You have to work hard to have near perfect marriage.

ilovetosing said...

I wish all the Best Luck in the world...I only want you to be Happy and content for yourself and I am sure that this will make your parents or any parents happy...I wish you all the HAPPINES....I'll pray that you will find the right
girl...who you will love always...

jos-b said...

i wish him the best of luck finding his mrs. right!!

Mr LEE Donggun,

Always remember that marriage is sacred. You will not marry a person just because you want your parents to be happy.So sad for that reasons.You should think first before going to it. You need counseling.Anyway, you are still young.Why in a hurry? God will give you the girl in a right time.

Oooh,Honey, I thought you'd never ask!!! Your search is O-V-E-R; I'm HERE!

BUT SERIOUSLY:
Glad to know that LDG is coping well with the recent loss of his beloved younger brother. I had also lost three older brothers plus my parents in the last decade, so I can relate to his dilemma.

The void will NEVER be replaced by anything or anyone. APPRECIATION of the time spent with your loved ones, ACCEPTANCE of their departure, and slowly getting enough COURAGE to MOVE ON--with them as your INSPIRATION in living the rest of your life--will certainly help.

Marriage needs to be for the right reason and the right time--ALTHOUGH JUST FOR LDG...I'd toss all rhyme and reason out the window!!!

sometimes in life, getting married doesn't always solve the problem. i believe that with experience, time is the only answer. it takes time to heal a wounded heart from loosing someone. yes crying is involve while you work, drive or even watch tv but after many days goes by, your tears will slowly stop and you'll start thinking about the good times and cry some more....it will take more than just one month, maybe half a year or even over a year but good news is...after three years, your pain will be lifted a little and again as i said you'll start thinking about good times again but this time you'll smile rather than cry... maybe even just watery eyes... there'll always be watery eyes when thinking of someone you lost, but time heals. this message is not just for lee dong gun but for his loving parents as well.

i don't know what he's thinking. but if you ask me, marriage is not that simple. i also do agree that letting a new person in his family will make them feel better, but how long. that mean his wound inside his heart still there. he must try to find a peace through his mind and heart. finding the right person, we won't know when and how. it's not just you picking up someone else from the street. it's about marriage for his internal life. marriage is so precious and so meaning. if everyone think that you must getting on with your ex-girlfriend, i have no reason to disagree but we want to know either it's work or not. i have a friend, she already married and have 2 children. i asked her how she get to know her husband. this is what she said, i dream a man inside her dream. she doesn't know what he look like. but she sure only looking at his back. oneday she realize something. when her husband turning his back it seem that she have seen it. then she remember her dream. because that time when she still young and single she told me this, she pray all day because she afraid to love someone and afraid to be leave. she asks god to show her a man that not totally perfect unless he can love her the way she is. can be a good husband and a loving father...she happy now with her life... the point is. LDG...if you want to find someone you must cure your wound first...the person that you want to find maybe out there somewhere. maybe she's not korean. or maybe she from other places than korea. i have a word from you. since you a christian...i get this from the book. success in marriage is more than finding the right person;it is becoming the right person...try to think it twice...good night....

Dearest Mr. Dong Gun,

If you find time in your life to read any of these comments, I commend your efforts and time. If this message crosses your mind, may god bless you and guide you to wherever you will go. When you have gone through so much, no one can tell you what you can and cannot do, only you can. As I state in my MySpace and quoted, "My family is my life in which they surround my happiness, they live under the tent of my soul. My friends, not many but a few on a count of fingers, are whom eases my saddness, without them I would not release my emotions. 'I do not wish to treat friendships daintily, but with the roughest courage. When they are real, they are not glass threads or frost-work, but the solidest thing we know.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson.' I think you know what you need and have to do as I too. My condolence to you and your family. All the best.

I will learn Korean while you are in the service. I hope you don't mind that I aspire to become a professional orchestral musician. Also, I'm not Asian.
I will do my best! Fighting!

will you marry me?

Sara said...

Well,
I think it is really hard to write about someone who has so many fans. But I have one suggestion for you: My suggestion is that you should continue your study especially in musics first,because of your dreams which you had in your childhood and also because of your talents in art and musics and then become a professor in university, second about marriage……. (I will tell you later if you give me your e-mail)
Best regardsssssss.
