Hallyu star Jang Dong-gun is scheduled to undergo knee surgery early next year, according to his agency on Thursday.

An official at AM Entertainment explained that the actor will have surgery "sometime around January or February" on his left knee, which he injured while shooting the 2004 blockbuster film "Taegukgi ".

The actor reportedly complained of being in pain while shooting action scenes or doing high-intensity workouts although he does not have much problem with daily activities. He had reportedly been planning to have the surgery since wrapping up "Good Morning President" and his Hollywood debut film "Warrior's Way".

Jang, one of Korea's top actors who starred in numerous television dramas and movies, made headlines in November after admitting to his two-year romantic relationship with Korean actress Ko So-young. The two stars have long sparked dating rumors since they appeared together in 1999 film "Love Wind, Love Song" but it was not until last month that they officially announced their status as a couple.

He is set to start shooting on a new film by Korean filmmaker Kang Je-gyu -- who directed Jang in "Taegukgi" -- next year.
