Actor Lee Sung-jae, 49, is to become a grandfather this year as his daughter is in the fifth month of pregnancy.
"Lee's daughter, In-young, 23, is set to deliver a baby in the autumn," Lee's agency said Wednesday. In-young, who studied dance in Canada, married in December.
Amid plunging fertility rates and with the marriage-is-optional notion increasing among young Korean adults, becoming a grandfather in his 40s is catching public attention.
Lee was born in 1970 and has a 25-year acting career.
He starred in tvN's thriller series "Abyss" that ended recently.
