It was also reported that the couple have been preparing for the wedding since August 2020. At this time, it was said that she would be trying the knot sometime between September 2021 and October 2021.
In an interview after news of her marriage broke, according to Soompi, Jiwoo had mentioned her fiance and said, "We are similar in many ways, and we both love work and are independent, so I think I will have a similar daily life after marriage. He is someone I can always count on, and I feel strengthened knowing that there is now another person on my side.”

Who is Jung Jiwoo getting married to?
As the reports suggest, Jiwoo's fiance is not a celebrity himself. The 30-year-old has chosen not to reveal his identity to her followers or to the media, as of now. In fact, even when she posted her wedding sketchbook video on YouTube, she had blurred out the face of her fiance in certain shots while others framed him in a way that would hide his identity.
K-pop fans troll her for trying to pass off as a celebrity
Many have congratulated Jiwoo, but a few critics left messages on the Soompi comments section about why news of Jiwoo getting married is getting any attention at all as she is not a 'celebrity' herself. One of them wrote, "Why the hell is she trying to pass herself off as a celebrity, when she only has YouTube followers??" To this one fan came forward to support and said, "To the people saying she's tryna pass off as a celebrity, she is under Cube ent and they released the news." The fan added that as a besides being an influencer and business woman, "being J-Hope's sister is yet another reason. Famous by association..."
Another user explained how and why Jiwoo was popular and said, "To all the people who are calling her a non-celebrity, she is famous in South Korea for her fashion label, and has thousands, if not millions, of followers. They (most of them) like her for her clothes and fashion sense, not because she is Hoseok's sister. And Soompi has also posted an article that said she has joined Cube Entertainment. So, she is a part of the industry."
