Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki are getting married
'Descendants of the Sun' co-stars have been dating for two years
Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki, co-stars of the hit Korean TV series Descendants of the Sun are tying the knot! The duo's agencies, Blossom Entertainment and UAA, both confirmed the news in a statement, saying that the couple plan to marry on 31 October this year.
Hye Kyo and Joong Ki – they played lovers in the K-drama as doctor Kang Mo Yeon and Special Forces captain Yoo Si Jin respectively – have been reportedly dating since Descendants of the Sun began filming in 2015 (the series aired in 2016).
A source told allkpop that Song Hye Kyo was initially uncomfortable with the idea of dating another celebrity but thanks to Song Joong Ki's efforts, their romance blossomed. (Aww!)
"They really didn't want the news of their relationship to be revealed by the media," the source added. "That is why Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki revealed their relationship through the press directly through their words, as they believe that is a courtesy for the fans."
Aren't we so lucky? Congratulations, you two!
