Actor Bae Yong-joon and his wife, singer-turned-actress Park Soo-jin, announced Monday they have welcomed a baby boy into their family.

“Park gave birth to a baby boy at a maternity clinic in Gangnam,” Bae’s management agency Keyeast Co. said, referring to an uptown neighborhood in southern Seoul. “Both the mother and baby are healthy.”

The two tied the knot in July last year and announced Park’s pregnancy in April.

The 44-year-old Bae became one of the first and most successful Korean Wave stars with his role in “Winter Sonata,” which aired in 2002, especially in Japan where he is lovingly called “Yonsama.”

Park, 30, debuted in 2002 as a member of the idol group Sugar and began her acting career after the group disbanded in 2006. Most recently, she worked as an MC on the TV show “Tasty Road,” which introduces hot and trendy restaurants in Seoul. (Yonhap)
