Their children will be so impossibly cute we might puke.

According to their representatives, actor Jang Dong-gun, voted the most beautiful male celebrity in a KBS television survey earlier this year, has been dating starlet Ko So-young for the past two years and marriage is a possibility. The couple, however, dismissed the rumors that their wedding has been set for December.

Jang and Ko met while the 1998 melodrama, "Love Wind, Love Song" and became friends, according to Jang's management agency, and have been a couple since 2007.

The country has seen its share of celebrity couples in recent years, with movie stars Sol Kyung-gu and Song Yoon-ah tying the knot in May, and actress Choi Ji-woo, who may have a larger following in Japan than her home country, surprising her fans by announcing her relationship with Lee Jin-wook, a lesser-known television actor.

Actor Hyun Bin has been dating Song Hye-ko, his co-star on the 2008 television series, "Worlds Within".

Still, Jang and Ko may be the most powerful celebrity couple as of yet, as the media will undoubtedly treat them as the Korean equivalent of "Brangelina".

The 37-year-old Jang, who launched his acting career with the 1993 television series, "Our Heaven", is best known for appearing in hit movies such as "Taegukgi: The Brotherhood of War", a 2004 film that remains as one of the country's most successful movies ever, selling nearly 12 million tickets.

Jang's recent movie, "Good Morning President", recent opened at local theaters.

Ko, also 37, gained popularity for her roles in several television dramas in the 1990s and early 2000s, and still draws one of the highest paychecks among actresses in television commercials. However, her movie career has been inconsistent compared to that of Jang, although her acting in the 1997 movie, "Beat", drew positive reviews.
