(UPDATE) Taeyang of the K-pop boy group BIGBANG and his wife, actress Min Hyo Rin, are expecting their first child, reports said Monday.
Min's talent agency confirmed her pregnancy after Korean newspaper Hankook Ilbo broke the news that the actress is expected to give birth soon, according a report from K-pop news site Soompi.
The report, however, did not mention how far Min is with her pregnancy and when she is scheduled to give birth.
Min met Taeyang, whose real name is Dong Young-bae, in 2014 when she starred in the music video for his song "1AM."
The two confirmed their relationship the following year and married in February 2018.
BIGBANG, which debuted in 2006 under YG Entertainment, is one of the most influential K-pop acts. Its hit songs include "Haru Haru," Fantastic Baby" and "Bang Bang Bang."
