Jang Hyuk, 31, the popular actor of the movie "Windstruck", will marry in June and become a father in February.

SidusHQ, Jang's agency, announced Jang's nuptial through a press release Dec. 29.

Jang and his fiancee Kim, 33, first met at a fitness club in 2002, she was a Pilates instructor at that time. "2004 was a really difficult year for me, but she was with me. She supported me in my difficult times and I can't even find the words to describe how thankful and moved I am", Jang said in the press release.

They got engaged last June and Kim is expecting a baby in February. Their wedding ceremony will take place June 2 at W Seoul - Walkerhill, after Kim's delivery. "We already named the baby, Tae-hui. I hope the baby will be a open-minded person like the name", Jang said. "Tae" in Korean means grand and "hui" means happiness.

Jang, a Busan-native born in 1976, debuted in the SBS TV drama "Models" (1997). He also starred in the movie "Volcano High" (2001) and drama "The Successful Story Of A Bright Girl" (2002).

He shot the romantic comedy movie "Windstruck" (2004) with Jun Ji-hyun, also known as Gianna Jun.

However, at the peak of his popularity, Jang was called to serve in the army, along with other famous actors Song Seung-heon and Han Jae-suk. He had attempted to dodge the obligatory military service earlier. He was discharged in November 2006.

Jang made a successful comeback with MBC drama "Thank You" (2007). He portrayed a lonely doctor living on an island who falls in love a single mom with a daughter who has AIDS.

Jang starred in his first Hollywood movie "Dance of the Dragon" with Singaporean actress Fann Wong and is currently shooting the SBS drama "Robber" (Bulhandang), which will air Wednesday.
