Her first publicised love which lasted for nine years was with SG Wannabe’s Kim Yong-jun. Their affair took off in 2005 when they met at the recording of SG Wannabe music video titled My Heart’s Treasure Box wherein Hwang Jung Eum had a starring role. The couple confirmed their relationship status at the beginning of 2008 but after a long period of nine years, the news of their break-up came through Yonhap News Agency on the 15th of May 2015 and that was after Hwang was through with the filming of Kill Me, Heal Me.
A publication by the famed actress’ agency C-JeS Entertainment on the 8th of December 2015, confirmed a relationship between Hwang Jung Eum and professional golfer cum businessman Lee Young-don. After confirming their relationship status, the celebrity couple announced their wedding the next month, this was just after five months of courtship.
Hwang who had been busy with the wedding preparations confessed that what attracted her to her spouse was his looks but as she got to know him better, she discovered that despite his smashing looks, the hunk has a heart of gold and gives others their due respect. According to Hwang, she was hooked and couldn’t wait to spend forever with this great guy.
The much-anticipated wedding came to pass on the 26th of February 2016 and true to expectations, the wedding which took place at Hotel Shilla was a glamorous affair with beautiful decorations and a guest list of over 700 people who honored the occasion.

Hwang Jung Eum and her beau seem to be living in a world of their own, untouched by the realities around them. In fact, Scarlet Heart: Ryeo’s episode 16 was actually delayed because the lovebirds were watching a baseball game together. They were caught on camera where they looked so engrossed in the game with Hwang leaning on her husband’s shoulder, listening to him talk about the game and giving him occasional kisses on the cheek while she caresses his face in a suggestive way. As a typical Korean would put it, it was an adorable public display of skinship!
