Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo—best known for their moniker "Song Song Couple"—are a few weeks away from their highly-anticipated wedding.
On August, Soompi.com, the longest-running K-Pop site, reported that the Descendants of the Sun lead stars will be tying the knot at the celebrated The Shilla Seoul on October 31.
A source from Song Joong Ki’s agency Blossom Entertainment confirmed this statement.
The five-star hotel had hosted numerous “high-class” celebrity weddings in the past—to name a few, the nuptials of Stairway to Heaven lead actor Kwon Sang-Woo and actress Son Tae-Young in 2008 and of My Love From the Star lead actress Jun Ji-hyun and businessman Choi Joon-Hyuk in 2008.
It has six wedding halls: Dynasty Hall, Ruby Hall, Topaz Hall, Emerald Hall, Memories Hill, and The Garden Reception.
The last two halls are outdoor wedding venues.
GUEST LIST. With two of South Korea’s top stars getting married, fans expect a star-studded wedding.
A Facebook fan page dedicated to giving updates about the “Song Song Wedding” anticipated a Descendants of the Sun reunion of the cast and crew.
The page also suggested that Lee Kwang-Soo from the Running Man series may serve as Song Joong Ki’s best man since the two actors are longtime friends.
Meanwhile, Love in The Moonlight actor Park Bo-Gum and That Winter, the Wind Blows actor Jo In-Sung are rumored to take part as groomsmen.
Park Bo-Gum and Song Joong Ki, who are like brothers, hail from the same talent agency.
Jo In-Sung, on the other hand, reportedly introduced Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki to each other three years before the Descendants of the Sun.
Around that time, Jo In-Sung was working with Song Hye Kyo in the That Winter, the Wind Blows.
It was also reported that Jo In-Sung recommended Song Joong Ki for the lead role of Descendants of the Sun, making him a significant player in the couple's love story.
Other names who are said to be on the guest list: Song Hye Kyo’s longtime friend and Song Joong Ki’s Sungkyunkwan Scandal co-star Yoo Ah-in, Song Hye Kyo's Full House co-star Rain, and My Sassy Girl actor and founder of Blossom Entertainment Cha Tae-hyun.
LOLIT SOLIS GOES GAGA. Entertainment writer and K-drama fanatic Lolit Solis is among the fans who are looking forward to the Song Song couple’s union.
Lolit's ardent wish is to witness the wedding.
In fact, she said she will go as far as applying for a job at The Shilla Seoul.
She quipped on Instagram, “Ibinalita na ang hotel kung saan ikakasal si Song Joong Ki sa Oct 31!
“Balak ko mag-apply waitress, dishwasher o taga-mop ng sahig kung puwede para lang makita ko si Song at sana mag-selfie kami.
“Imagine mo, groomsmen niya sila Jo In-sung at Park Bo-gum. Tatlo agad sa mga dreamboat ko nando’n!”
Lolit even volunteered to clean the men’s restroom on the couple's wedding day, “Maging taga-linis ako ng restroom ng lalaki, papayag ako, hah hah!
“Sobrang suwerte iyon di ba?
“At hitsura din na irap-irapan ko misis niyang si Song, basta makalapit ako kay Joong Ki, In-sung, at Bo-gum, please!
