The K-Pop industry is getting a little restless these days as SM Entertainment has confirmed that Super Junior′s Sungmin is going to marry his actress girlfriend, Kim Sa-Eun this December.
Initially, Korean media outlet Osen dismissed the marriage rumour as Kim Sa-Eun’s agency has denied the reports about their marriage. The agency stated that the both celebrities are still in a relationship but they have not gone as far as to talk about getting married just yet. Plus, it seems like Sa-Eun has a busy schedule as the agency stated that she’s currently focusing on her schedule as an actress.
However, shortly after the report, Sungmin updated Super Junior’s official homepage, announcing the news of his upcoming marriage on 13th December. The full statement is as follows:
Hello, this is Sungmin. How should I start… I’ve thought about what to say for my first sentence countless times. After writing and erasing over and over again, the thoughts and voices of all the people I’m thankful for are coming up. With a heavy and careful heart, I’m writing this letter.
Everyone, I’m getting married on December 13. It makes me sad thinking about all the fans that must have been alarmed at the news. I wanted to personally break the news, but while thinking about how I should tell my good friends and loving E.L.F, the news reports came out first, and I’m really sorry for that.
Before revealing this news, I thought about it a lot, not because I was scared of the decision I had made, but because I was worried for the people. I’m thankful for being shocked and hurt at the news. I’m a little bit late, but with the love and trust you’ve given me, I’ve gained the courage to relate the news.
I’m so thankful for all of you that have stood by me, watching the nothing that I was grow and mature, and I wanted to tell you all that I love you.
To everyone who has helped me until now, and to my fellow members and company that trust and support my decision, I am sincerely thankful. Continuing my activities, I’ll do my best to return everyone’s love and support.
SM Entertainment has also confirmed the news by congratulating them on Twitter:
성민아~ 결혼 축하해! 너의 미래에 행복과 축복이 함께 하길. 사랑한다. -SM엔터테인먼트 가족 일동-

SungMin ah~ congratulations on your wedding! We wish you both happiness and grace in your marriage!
The report about their alleged marriage first emerged on a Korean news outlet this morning, stating that Sungmin and Sa-Eun will get married in a private wedding on 13th December at a luxurious wedding hall, “The Raum”.
Super Junior’s Sungmin met actress Kim Sa-Eun though a musical “Three Musketeers”. They were introduced to each other while working for the musical. They publicly revealed their relationship to the public and SM Entertainment has confirmed that they’ve begun dating since last month.
We don’t know about you but it seems like SM Entertainment is plagued with all kind of rumours recently. Other SM’s idol group members such as Sulli and Jessica were plagued with marriage rumours while EXO was struck with departure rumours and dating scandals. A representative of Kim Sa-Eun’s agency has denied that this is a shotgun wedding and told TV Daily that they will release an official statement soon.
For now, we would like to congratulate them on their wedding and we wish them all the happiness in the world! :D
