Steven Yeun is an American actor who starred in The Walking Dead on AMC between 2010 and 2016. He starred in a total of 66 episodes and fans were left feeling emotional after his character was killed off. Viewers are wondering who Yeun is married to and Express.co.uk has everything you need to know.

Who is The Walking Dead star Steven Yeun married to?

Yeun is a South Korean-American actor who is known for his roles in The Walking Dead and Burning.

He is also a voice actor who played one of the main roles in Voltron: Legendary Defender.

The star is married to Joana Pak, who is a photographer, and the pair celebrated their wedding in December 2016.

They have two children together – their first, a son, was born in March 2017 and they named him Jude Malcolm Yeun.

Their daughter was born in April 2019, but they did not announce the name of their child at the time.

Yeun and Pak were married in LA after seven years as a couple and co-stars Andrew Lincoln and Sarah Wayne Callies attended the wedding.

Pak’s sister-in-law Kayce shared a photo of the husband and wife on their big day.

She said: “Getting to celebrate the love between these two, last night, along with all their friends and family was so beautiful and special.

“This whole week has been an awesome, family-filled, fun time and it’s been so great! (We’ve also gained a brother-in-law from it!) #loveyouguys #pakpack.”

The 36-year-old opted for a hilltop wedding at Los Angeles’ Paramour estate surrounded by flowers and butterflies.

More than 200 guests attended the big day and Yeun told Martha Stewart Weddings he wanted the wedding to be “very relaxed and focused on a greater message of love”.

A few months later they celebrated the birth of their first child and photographer Pak shared many pictures of her bump on social media.

When Yeun was 35 and Pak was 32, they welcomed their baby daughter and she shared a photo from the hospital just after the birth.

Pak has since been sharing adorable photos and videos of her children on Instagram, including a video of her son acting as superman in a cape.

In The Walking Dead Yeun’s character Glenn is married to survivor Maggie (Lauren Cohan).

For a while, fans believed they were a couple in real life, and Cohan had said she would date Glenn out of all The Walking Dead characters.

During the interview with GQ, she said: “I’m probably biased, I’d say the best character on a date in my series would be Steven Yeun.

“Because he plays my husband, and he’s also the funniest, and I think that’s the most important thing about a date.”

In an interview with Larry King Yeun and Cohan opened up about filming sex scenes and whether they naturally have chemistry.

Yeun said: “I would say so, we are really good friends.” When asked how Pak felt about the romantic scenes Yeun said: “She’s super cool.”

Speaking about his relationship with Cohan he said: “I think we have a very mutual admiration for each other.

“We have had to do some pretty couplish scenes, a sex scene we had to go for. What’s great is I make it a thing to feel comfortable with her.”

His wife Pak is of Korean descent, like her husband, and her parents emigrated from Korea to the US.

She opened her own photography studio called Jo Pakka and is hugely successful in her work.

Before she was married to Yeun, the pair were in a long-distance relationship as Yeun was in LA.
