36-year-old Korean actress Jun Ji-hyun, who most recently starred in the hit TV drama The Legend of the Blue Sea, is expecting her second child.
According to ABS-CBN news, Jun is 10 weeks along and is due to give birth in January 2018.
She married husband Choi Jun-hyeok (who is the son of a popular fashion designer) in 2012 and they welcomed their first child four years later in 2016.
In a previous interview with South China Morning Post, Jun shared how she believes getting married would not interfere with her career, which is something she truly pours her heart into.
“I didn’t see how marriage would affect my work,” she said in the interview. “I’m a professional, and I won’t let these things interfere with my work. Maybe getting married means that I’ve grown up – and this means the emotion I express during my performances won’t be the same. That’s very interesting, actually.”
“Now that I’m a mother, the feeling is different. There is joy in seeing your loved ones happy…”
She also believes becoming a mom changed is one of her greatest joys and achievements.
“Now that I’m a mother, the feeling is different. There is joy in seeing your loved ones happy,” she shared with the New Straits Times. “I feel that I’m more mature now when entering a new phase in life. I would like to think that I have become more confident of myself too. “I’m still the same person with the same values and beliefs. They keep me grounded, my feet on the ground, and help define who I am and the decisions that I make.”
Also popularly known as Gianna Jun outside of Korea, her most beloved roles were in the films “My Sassy Girl” and “Windstruck” as well as the TV series “My Love from the Star,” which has been adapted into a Filipino TV drama.
