Korean-American actress Kim Soo-hyun, known as Claudia Kim, will marry her boyfriend, Matthew Shampine, at the Hotel Shilla on December 14, 2019, reports said Friday.
In August, Kim’s agency Culture Depot said the star – who appeared in the 2018 film Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and Avengers: Age of Ultron, the franchise’s 2015 film – was dating the Korean-American businessman, whose Korean name is Cha Min-geun.
She rose to international stardom thanks to blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), playing the geneticist Dr Helen Cho. Kim also appeared in the Hollywood movie Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, a spin-off from JK Rowling’s hit Harry Potter franchise.
Shampine, 37, also known as Cha Min-geun, is a founding member of WeWork, which provides shared workspaces for enterprises. It was established in the US in 2010 and entered Korea in 2016.
Shampine, who works for WeWork Korea, a multinational firm that offers workspace services for start-up companies, is three years older than the actress.
Kim made her debut in the Korean television drama Master of the Game in 2006 after winning a Korea-China modelling contest. She then appeared in several Hollywood films. She is now filming the television drama Chimera.
