The guessing game is over… the SongSong couple is real!
Following their agencies’ sudden announcement about their marriage, actors Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo have finally spoken out about their real status.
The ‘Descendant of the Sun’ stars confirmed their relationship and opened up about their upcoming wedding by posting official statement through their respective fan cafes.
Song Joong-ki wrote a heartfelt message to their fans explaining the marriage announcement that rocked their fans’ world. He asked for their understanding and their blessings as they tie the knot on October 31.
“It’s been a long time since I greeted you guys. I’m writing this because I want to receive your blessings before anyone else. I am truly nervous as I am writing this but I wish to tell you guys my true feelings.
I was recently able to be part of a drama that made me shine brighter than ever before and I enjoyed the happiest days of my life because of your tremendous love I received from everyone. After the drama, I gained another precious friend who I shared my honest feelings with, and we developed a loving relationship.
At the start of 2016, we promised to spend the rest of our lives together by understanding each others’ weaknesses and helping each other through harsh times. So I will be starting a new life with Miss Song Hye Kyo through our wedding on the last day of October 2017.
Furthermore, there were many parties involved in the making of the movie and many were looking forward to the release date of this movie. Because all these factors, I was worried about the possible harm that might come to this project and if I showed a less-understanding self, I apologize.
The thoughts that came to me when I first started acting come to mind. As an actor lives, he mustn’t focus on the highs and strive to keep going up. He must learn to look around him and learn to grow wider as a person. I want to work towards being a celebrity that isn’t up in a pedestal but rather around his close fans and people who treasure him. I want to be in reach of the people that care about me. That’s the mindset I had when I first started acting.
I heard once that life isn’t about speed but rather about direction. As someone who’s moved fast and didn’t see his surroundings all this time… I will work harder to become someone who learn from others and learn to walk instead of run.
I wish everyone will support this mindset and cheer for me. I will become an actor who doesn’t change from this mindset and become someone who is a strong family man. Please support the cheerful encounter between the two of us. Thank you.”
