“I am getting married with the person I have been in a relationship with for a long time,” said in a statement as translated to English by Soompi.
“I am getting married with the person I have been in a relationship with for a long time. He has been a source of support for a long time and embraced all of the shortcomings of the person Park Shin Hye, and I would like to begin a life as a married couple with him,” she added.
Tae Joon, on the other hand, described Shin Hye as his savior “who taught me without words to smile brightly when I’m happy and to cry out loud when I’m sad”.
“Now, we would like to make our marriage vows and let this love that I’m grateful for bear fruit,” said Tae Joon.
