Super Junior’s Ryeowook is getting married in May 


Ryeowook of K-pop boy band Super Junior will be soon tying the knot with his girlfriend Ari, a former member of K-pop girl group Tahiti.

The South Korean idol took to Instagram on Friday to share the big news through a handwritten letter he dearly addressed to fans, ak.a. ELFs whom he described as “my most precious friends, who always send me love and support with all their hearts”. 

“Whether then or now, our ELFs have always steadfastly stood by our side. I think we have become stronger, having experienced both happy and sad moments together,” Ryeowook stated as translated in a report by Soompi. 

“Therefore, I am eager to convey this news first but also cautious about doing so,” he continued as he informed fans of his upcoming marriage in May. 

“Over the time we spent together, I naturally developed a desire to become family with her.

“This is not a sudden decision but one I’ve been deliberating for a long time, and after long discussion with the members and agency staff, I decided to have my wedding this spring in late May,” shared Ryeowook. 

Ryeowook then expressed his gratitude to their fans for their unwavering love and support and offered his apologies to those who might be surprised with the wedding news. 

“I will continue to work hard as Super Junior’s Ryeowook and as singer Ryeowook for all of you who support me performing with the members and want to listen to my singing nevertheless.

“Also, I would like to thank our members and SM staff who have supported my decision and given me strength,” he added, referring to his label. 

Ryewook and Ari first made their relationship public in 2020. 
Super Junior, who debuted in 2005, is known for their hit songs such as “Sorry, Sorry” and “Mr. Simple”.

Tahiti, meanwhile, made their debut in 2012, but eventually disbanded in 2018.
