These two top class actors are known to be close friends but no one actually knew they were family.
It’s a little complicated but Gong Yoo and Kang Dongwon are related by marriage through their family’s in-laws.
It was recently revealed that both their grandpas are best friends from Busan. Their grandpas’ kids married each other. The married couple each had siblings and those siblings are the parents of Gong Yoo and Kang Dongwon.
To put it in simpler terms, if Gong Yoo had a cousin, his cousin would be first cousins with Kang Dongwon. Therefore, Gong Yoo and Kang Dongwon are cousin’s cousins to each other!
Gong Yoo is currently starring in the drama Goblin as a cursed immortal human. Kang Dongwon stars in the newly released movie Master as a leader of an intellectual crime investigation team.
