SEOUL, Jan. 7 (Yonhap) -- Actress Hwang Jung-eum will marry a golfer-turned-entrepreneur next month whom she's been dating for half a year, her agency said Thursday.

The "Pretty Woman" actress recently revealed she's been seeing Lee Young-don, who is four years her senior.

The couple will tie the knot at Hotel Shilla in Seoul on Feb. 26, C-JeS Entertainment said.

"Hwang was moved by his steady support and trust in her busy times last year," the agency said in a statement. "We hope the fans will send their love and blessings their way."

The former member of the now-defunct girl group Sugar will continue her acting career into the marriage, the agency added.

The 31-year-old actress had a fantastic 2015, playing the lead woman in two MBC soap opera hits: "Kill Me, Heal Me" and "Pretty Woman."

She was named best actress by the terrestrial network last year and was unanimously chosen as Actress of the Year by all three terrestrial networks.
