Love life

In May 1995, at the peak of her career, Go married Chung Yong-jin, vice chairman and CEO of Shinsegae Group and grandson of Samsung founder Lee Byung-chull. The two first met in New York purely by coincidence when Chung had offered to help Go find her seat at the Winter Garden Theatre because her English was so bad. After the most talked-about wedding in Korea at the time, Go announced her retirement from acting to focus on her new role as a chaebol's wife. They had two children together, a boy (born in 1998) and a girl (born in 2000). After eight years of marriage, a messy divorce followed in November 2003, during which she lost complete custody of her children.

Career

She debuted in the entertainment scene as a Miss Korea runner-up in 1989 and went on to star in Sandglass (1995), one of the highest-rated and critically acclaimed dramas in Korean television history.

She retired after marrying chaebol Chung Yong-jin in 1995, then returned to acting after their divorce in 2003.

Go has since regained her top star status in Korea, becoming the highest-paid actress on TV after the success of her series Queen Seondeok (2009) and Daemul.

In 2021, she starred as Jung Hee Joo in Reflection of You, a South Korean television series directed by Lim Hyeon-wook.
