Jung Joon-ha to wed girlfriend 'Nemo' in May

One of Korea's celebrity bachelors is ready to put an end to his single life.

Jung Joon-ha, comedian best known for his part in the six-man team on MBC's weekly show "Infinity Challenge", announced Monday that he is tying the knot with his girlfriend of three years in May.

Her name has been withheld from the public, following the national press law. The Japanese-born Korean flight attendant has been referred to as "Nemo" by Jeong since the entertainer first announced their relationship on "Infinity" in 2009.

A private ceremony will be held at the exclusive Shilla Hotel in Jangchung-dong, central Seoul, on May 20. The five-star hotel has established itself as the go-to wedding spot for A-list celebrities, attracting among others Jang Dong-gun and Go So-young, Korea's Brangelina.

"Our parents met in January, and things took off right away", said Jeong at a press conference Monday, which took place at his Japanese restaurant-bar in Cheongdam-dong, southern Seoul. "It was during the Lunar New Year holiday in Osaka, and I didn't know that things would move so quickly".

Jeong, who turned 41 last month, was one of the industry's most public bachelors, with himself and colleagues regularly bringing up his wish to find a wife in the public sphere.

The couple met for the first time in 2008, when he was a passenger on a flight she was working.

At the press conference, he also denied previous media reports that an unexpected pregnancy is the cause of the surprise announcement.

"I would like a child, but she's still young", he said, referring to his 31-year-old fiancee. "But this is no case of speeding (local term for pregnancy-forced weddings)".
