#SongSong Engagement Breaks the Internet
Stars of the Korean hit drama “Descendants of the Sun” Song Jong Ki and Song Hye Kyo have confirmed through agencies that they will get married on October 31, 2017.
Netizens took to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to make #SongSongCouple trend.
"Descendants of the Sun" was a major hit not only in Korea, but also across Asia. In the series, Song Jong Ki plays Yoo Si-Jin, who is the captain of a Korean Special Forces Unit while Song Hye Kyo plays Dr. Kang Mo-yeon.
Throughout the series, fans have observed the off-cam chemistry between the two, which lead to dating rumors that were constantly denied by the stars’ representatives.
The whole world (okay, we exaggerate) was shocked, in a good way, by the news but all we're thinking about right now is what the beautiful bride-to-be will wear for the wedding. We also want to see what the groom will look like. This is our favorite power couple, after all. We've only dreamt of this moment and it's going to be a reality.
“Joong Ki and I were first co-workers who matched well. Throughout the project, I realized that we had similar values and ideas, and I was able to share everything with him.
"He showed me his self, trust, and manners for a long time. I thought to myself that it would be good to spend my future with him. I was glad that he could feel my true emotions as well. That was when I know he was the one," said Song He Kyo on Twitter.
“At the start of 2016, we promised to spend the rest of our lives together by understanding each others’ weaknesses and helping each other through harsh times. So I will be starting a new life with Miss Song Hye Kyo through our wedding on the last day of October 2017," said Song Joong Ki.
