Son Tae-young (손태영)

At the time of writing, Son Tae-young is best known as the soon-to-be Mrs. Kwon Sang-woo. The lovebirds have set their wedding date on September 28, 2008.

But before the announcement that Son is marrying one of K-popdom's most eligible bachelors, the 28-year-old kicked off her career in showbiz as a beauty queen.

The Iljimae and Sad Movie actress was the 3rd runner-up in the 2000 Miss Korea beauty pageant. She went on to act in the drama Pure Heart (2001). Her first movie role was in the 2004 flick Ghost House.

One of her more notable flicks is The Railroad (2006), which received a special award by the International Federation of Film Critics during the 25th Torino Film Festival in Italy.

The backlash from her impending marriage to Hallyu star Kwon Sang-woo has laid bare her personal life.

In 2001, Son made headlines for dating actor Shin Hyun-joon (St. Hobbo Oppa) after calling it quits with songwriter Joo Young-hoon. A love triangle between the trio made much fodder for gossip.

Son again became the centre of attention in 2006 when she got involved with music video director Cool K.

The lady openly expressed the pain of breaking up on a talk show last year, saying how she has lost faith in love. Little did she know, hunky Kwon Sang-woo (32) was tuned in to the program and her vulnerability made him sympathise with her. After that, the rest - as they say - is history. (You can read about their romance here or check out the links below).

Ladies, and gentlemen, I give you Son Tae-young:

As usual, thanks for sharing K-POPPED! XP

My beef with her is that she's been a fodder for gossip as you have stated impartially and not just any gossip, mind you. The whole love-triangle and dropping men once they're no longer the 'in' thing seems to be her style.

I'm not a fan of KSW and who knows maybe he's been a serial dater too but keeps his dirty laundry from airing so this might be a match made in heaven.

Congrats and best of luck.

I don't think KSW is a serial dater. He seems like a clean cut kind of guy. In fact a mother's boy. But if STY is the kind who goes after guys who are "in", well, she can't get any better than Sang Woo sshi!

I would like to wish one of my favorite Korean actor, Kwon Sang-Woo the best married life with his chosen bride to be, Son Tae -Yeong. I read some of the many comment from around the world. I would agreed with San-Woo, it is none of people's business to dislike who he chose to be his wife. The main thing is that he is happy with whom he chose. So, My favorite Kwon go for it live your life to the fullest. May God bless you in all that you do. I love most of the movies or drama you appeared in. Keep up the good job and enjoy your married life, it help people like us that loved your show . I will always loved you in my heart as the best actor of Korea, I feel like visiting you and see you in real life and especially your marriage on the 28th. God Bless you and your new married life and good luck. With Love . . .
