The agencies of the two co-stars of 2016 hit drama “Descendants of the Sun,” Blossom Entertainment and United Artists Agency (UAA), have issued a joint statement on July 5.
It reads as follows:
“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.”
