After two years of dating, K-favorite drama's couple, Son Ye-Jin and Hyun Bin, announced on February 10 that they will marry next month!
The pair were hinted to be dating since March 2020, and then declared the rumors to be true in January 2021. Many fans have been waiting for their favorite stars to marry since they co-starred in the hit TV series Crash Landing On You.
The pair chose to make the big announcement on their respective Instagram accounts. Son wrote on her personal account, alongside a photo of a mini wedding gown, "I thought long and hard about how to share this story because it's an important one. I found someone with whom I intend to spend the rest of my life. Yes, that's him."
As for the groom-to-be, Hyun Bin posted a handwritten note on his agency Vast Entertainment’s official account. Per Soompi, he wrote, “I have made the important decision of marriage and am cautiously taking steps toward the second stage of my life. I have made this promise with the woman who always makes me laugh.”
According to Son’s management team, MS Team Entertainment, due to the pandemic, the wedding will be done privately with only their families and close friends.
Son, who will be back onscreen with JTBC drama Thirty Nine on Wednesday, February 16, made an appearance on an episode of the talk show 'You Quiz on the Block', which will be broadcasted next week. In a teaser video, Son was questioned on her first love, to which she replied, "the love right now is the first love."
It was not the first occasion the couple has been seen adoring each other in public. When Hyun Bin accepted his grand prize at the APAN Star Awards in January 2021, he even expressed his gratitude to Son, describing her as his best companion.
In previous media appearances, both Hyun Bin and Son expressed their optimism that their potential partners would be understanding. As per Koreaboo, Hyun Bin has previously stated that he prefers “a woman who is very understanding. Because of the field I am working in, it’s hard to find someone who can be truly understanding of everything.”
According to The Daily Sports, Son's ideal partner is a person taller than 175 cms. who can encourage and understand her career.
They appear to have found the perfect partner, as their ideal types are similar.
Hyun Bin stated in a 2017 interview with Sports Seoul: “I want to build a happy family and become a good father. I think there is a timing in getting married. I hope I don’t do it too late.”
Son, for her part, told Dalian Media that she believes in destiny. She also collaborated with Hyun Bin on two occasions, first in the 2018 movie The Negotiation and also in the 2019 drama series Crash Landing On You. Perhaps their meetings felt magical to Son, who wrote in her wedding announcement post, "It happened so naturally... But, isn't that destiny?"
