K-Drama stars Song Joong Ki (송중기) and Song Hye Kyo (송혜교) is currently Hallyu’s hottest couple and they are set to get married on 31st October.
On Tuesday (11th July), Song Joong Ki’s father opened up about his son’s engagement. He said, “(Song Joong Ki) is at the best age to get married so I’m glad he’s engaged. As parents, we’ve decided to respect our son’s decision. People were saying I was against their marriage, but that’s a misunderstanding.”
Besides that, he also shared that he wants to see grandchildren soon. “Now that my son will be having a stable family after marriage, I hope he works even harder to become an actor who can also be responsible for his household. I think my son will be able to achieve that,” he explained.
Apparently, Lee Kwang Soo frequently visits Joong Ki’s family home in Daejeon. His father also revealed that Song Hye Kyo, Jin Goo, and Kim Ji Won slept over at the house once because the filming location for “Descendants of the Sun” was nearby.
Meanwhile, one of the panelists of Channel A’s “Heard It Through the Grapevine” revealed that the couple first met each other in 2013 through Jo In Sung, who had starred in the drama “That Winter, the Wind Blows” with Song Hye Kyo.
Dubbed “Song-Song couple” by the media and fans, 31-year-old Song Joong Ki and 35-year-old Song Hye Kyo starred in KBS’ hit K-drama “Descendants of the Sun” as Captain Yoo Shi Jin aka Big Boss and Doctor Kang Mo Yeon.
