The Ship Has Sailed! From screen to real life, our favourite TV couple is getting married for real!
After months of denying their dating rumours, stars of hit Korean drama, Descendants of the Sun, Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo shook the world as they announced their engagement yesterday! The two are set to walk down the aisle on October 31st according to a statement from the star’s agencies yesterday (July 4th).
The joint statement goes:
“Hello. This is Blossom Entertainment and UAA.
“First of all, we give our thanks to the Korean and international fans who have shown a lot of interest in and love for Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo. Also, we ask for your understanding as we convey this surprising news.
“Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo will be holding a wedding ceremony on the final day of October, 2017. A marriage is not only a private matter but also a meeting between two families, so it was a delicate situation in many ways.
“There was no choice but to be cautious prior to marriage, and so we are at last conveying this message. We ask for everyone’s understanding.
“We ask for you to send the couple best wishes for their beautiful future together, and the two actors will be conveying the news to their fans separately. Thank you.”
The two stars, who won the Best Couple Award at the recent KBS Drama Awards, were rumoured to be dating during their filming for Descendants of the Sun in 2015. They were also spotted in Bali together last month which strengthens their dating speculations but their agencies and representatives denied it.
Well, one thing’s for sure a huge congratulation is in order for Joong-ki and Hye-kyo!
