With the recent shocker from The Walking Dead season 7 premiere, people are asking questions about Steven Yeun (Glenn Rhee). Fans have always rumored and hoped that Yeun and Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene) would get together in reality, but people want to know who is Steven Yeun dating now? Is Steven Yeun married? Who is Steven Yeun’s wife? Getting anxious? Wait no more—here’s what you need to know.
Who Is Steven Yeun?
Born December 21, 1983, Steven Yeun is none other than the much-loved Glenn Rhee from The Walking Dead. He was born in Seoul, South Korea, but currently resides in Los Angeles, California. His rise to fame was an interesting story: After moving from Seoul to Regina, Saskatchewan, in Canada, he moved to Troy, Michigan, and began his studies. At Kalamazoo College, he received a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a focus in neuroscience, but he wanted to become an actor. His parents, who wanted him to be a doctor or lawyer, gave him two years to show his acting talent. He later joined The Second City in Chicago before moving to Los Angeles in October 2009.
Did He Date Lauren Cohan?
Fans got their hopes up around the time Cohan told Rolling Stone in 2013 about the actors’ camp-like set-up, “We all live within two buildings and five seconds from each other, and we all go to coffee and drinks at the same place, so we always get recognized.” Fans who spotted Cohan and Yeun together have been hoping for years that they would be open about their “relationship.” As it turns out, the rumors are untrue. “There are entire web sites dedicated to the proof that Steven and I are in a real relationship. Which is always funny, because it’s not [true],” said Cohan. Although their TV romance on The Walking Dead brought happiness and hope to viewers who were immersed in the post-apocalyptic world, they both live very separate lives.
Is He Married?
Although Steven Yeun tries to keep his life private, some Korean news outlets are working on releasing the secrets about his engagement and marriage to Joana Pak. Who is Joana Pak? Where did she come from? The professional photographer has often used Yeun as her subject for over a year on her Instagram (@jopakka). A recent forum on Lipstick Valley revealed that the couple was engaged but did not publicly announce it on social media. A tweet shared by Norman Reedus (@wwwbigbaldhead) also hinted about an engagement—many believe Reedus was cheering on Yeun’s proposal to Pak.

Fox News shared an image of Yeun’s new home in Los Angeles and wrote that he purchased it with his fiancée, Joana Pak. The home is worth $2.3 million and per the article, he paid in cash! Unless Yeun makes a public announcement soon, we might have to wait until their wedding in December to find out!
Observing the Pak and Yeun’s Instagram (@steveyeun), the couple seems very happy!
