The Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo wedding has finally been confirmed. After numerous months of being the center of relationship rumors, the Descendants of the Sun stars’ respective agencies issued a joint statement confirming Song-Song’s engagement.
Song-Song’s October wedding
On July 5, Wednesday, Blossom Entertainment and United Artists Agency (UAA) asked for “everyone’s understanding” as to why no official confirmation on the relationship was given sooner. They elucidate that the Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo wedding date is set for October 31, 2017, and further explain that marriage, being “a private matter,” is a “delicate situation.” Hence, understanding is asked of many surprised fans. The joint statement reads:
“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.”
Song Joong Ki, Song Hye Kyo relationship
Reportedly, the two stars began dating back in 2015, before filming of Descendants of the Sun even started. A friend of the couple was quoted dishing that “The two of them began falling in love last February, before Descendants Of The Sun began filming. The drama started filming mid-2015, and only aired after it was completely filmed.”
Additionally, the friend explains why the Song-Song couple never confirmed nor denied their relationship. “…they didn’t want the media to reveal their relationship before they could themselves. They believed that it was their duty to tell fans first.”
Fans’ reactions to the wedding confirmation
Social media platforms have revealed mixed reactions from fans of the couple, with most clearly happy and excited for the two. “I knew it…I knew it….those reports were true…despite both of them and their agencies denying!!! haha anyway congrats to them!!! why hide it in the first place???” says one fan. “WHAT A GREAT START FOR MY WEDNESDAY. I AM JUST SO HAPPY. I CANT CONTAIN IT,” says another.
