In a letter, Song Hye-kyo began by explaining why they chose to keep their relationship under wraps.

“Hello, It’s Hye Kyo. You were probably surprised by my sudden wedding news. I understand that you may think I lacked the respect for my fans and that you could have been shocked, but I hope you can understand me with an open heart,” she wrote, recalling how what started out as a good working relationship blossomed into something more.

“Throughout the project, I realized that we had similar values and ideas, and I was able to share everything with him,” she revealed. “Joong Ki showed me his self, trust, and his manners for a long time. I thought to myself that it would be good to spend the future with him and I was glad that he could feel my true emotions as well. That’s when I knew that he was the one.”

For his part, Song Joong-ki shared in a letter through Blossom Entertainment’s facebook page (which has been translated into English):

“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,” he began before recounting his experience working on Descendants of the Sun. Not only did he enjoy working on the show, it allowed him to gain a “precious friend” to share his honest feelings with.

He continued to reveal that they started getting to know each other more and their loving relationship has deepened since early 2016.

“I will be starting a new life with Miss Song Hye Kyo through our wedding on the last day of October 2017,” he wrote, apologizing for not revealing the news with their fans sooner.

“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,” he emphasized. “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.”
