Actors Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo opened up about their upcoming marriage by posting statements on their respective fan cafes.
Song Joong Ki wrote, I recently had the honor of participating in a production that could let me shine. It was such an amazing experience to me because I received so much undeserved love. During that time, I made a precious friend who eventually became my lover.
In the beginning of 2017, the two of us promised to spend our lives together. In order to begin a new life where we can get through difficult times together, Song Hye Kyo and I have decided to get married on the last day of October.
I think a lot of my loving fans wouldve been taken aback by the sudden news. I wanted to tell everyone earlier, but I had to be cautious because it was a decision that involved two people and their respective families. I also didnt want to cause any trouble to the people involved in my upcoming film. I hope you will understand.
I promise to live my life as a great actor and a reliable head of my family. I hope you will continue to support our relationship. Thank you.
Song Hye Kyo also wrote to her fans, saying, I think many of you wouldve been surprised by the sudden news. It may appear as if I lacked consideration for my fans, but I hope you will understand [my intentions].
At first, Joong Ki was a colleague who clicked well with me. As we worked on a production together, we discovered that we had similar values and we could really talk about anything. Because he was a good friend and colleague, we continued to keep in touch even after the [drama] ended.
Over time, the faith and trust that Joong Ki had shown me helped me imagine a future with him. I was thankful that he had such genuine feelings for me, and I was also able to confirm my own feelings for him.
I wanted to relay the engagement news to my fans first, but I had to be careful because it wasnt only my decision. I feel nervous announcing the news all of a sudden, but I trust that my fans will support me. Please continue to love me like you have until now. I want to thank my fans for waiting and believing in me.
The two of us will live happily. Please give us your blessings! Thank you.
