After that, it took a long time for him to gradually grow from a minor role in a movie to a supporting role and then to a main supporting role, and even after his debut, he was working part-time for a living.

In 2005, he won the Best New Actor Award at the Tsubaki Film Festival for the movie “The Most Beautiful Week of My Life” also known as “My Lovely Week”. After appearing in the dramas like “White Lie” in 2008 and “Temptation of an Angel” in 2009, Jin Tae-Hyun finally started to be remembered by name.

The high ratings of these two productions led to his leading role in “Pure Pumpkin Flower” in 2010. Tae-Hyun had been acting under his real name, Kim Tae-hyun, but changed it to “Jin Tae-hyun” after this film.

He says that the name was chosen to signify “a fresh start with a new heart”. Jin Tae-Hyun also said that he wanted to “make a fresh start with a new feeling”.

It’s quite unclear what happened in between, but he developed a relationship with actress Park Si-eun, who was one year older than him in the 2010 drama “Pure Pumpkin Flower.” Since the first reports of their love affair, the couple was expected to get married pretty soon.

Finally, they got married in 2015 and have been passionately in love ever since. Since then, they have been in an open relationship and have shown their good relationship on social networking sites.

Jin Tae Hyun Adopts a College Girl

In October 2019, it was reported that Tae-Hyun and Park Si-eun officially adopted a college student girl, Se Yeon. They met Se Yeon at a child welfare facility they visited during their honeymoon on Jeju Island.

Since then, the couple has maintained a personal relationship with the facility and the girl. More than a year before adopting her, Se Yeon appeared on Jin Tae-Hyun’s Instagram and wrote, “#Niece, I will do what I can for these children. A family was given by the God I believe in.”

Of course, she is not my niece, but she has been treating them as if they were her close uncles.

  Further back, in November 2017, Se Yeon went to school. Tae-Hyun wrote on his Instagram wishing her girl all the best for university and blessing her with good wishes.

Se Yeon was still in high school when they met, but now that she is a college student and about to enter the workforce, she wanted to be a real parent and support this child. Since becoming a father, Jin Tae-Hyun says he calls his daughter every day because he cares about her.

His Insta is full of love for his wife and daughter. We can also see from his Insta posts that he is very active in donation activities.

Jin Tae-Hyun always writes, “1+1=3, Everyone in my family is doing well” to express their well-being. He seems very happy to have met a companion who shares the same faith and to be able to walk in the same direction.

I thought that Mr. Jin Tae-Hyun looks like Eisaku Yoshida at times, especially for his looks.
