When Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo announced plans to marry, we shouted: the Song Song couple is real! Here’s why we can’t help but fall in love with the Descendants of the Sun costars-turned-couple.
1. The chemistry is undeniable
On Dec. 31, 2016, the “Descendants of the Sun” costars Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo received the grand award, which was the first joint award in KBS Drama Awards’ 30-year history. The couple was holding hands tightly seconds before hearing their names announced. On stage, they thanked each other as quoted below:
Song Hye Kyo: “I’m on stage for this award because of my partner Mr. Song Joong Ki. Without him, I wouldn’t have been on stage right now. I would like to thank Joong Ki again.”
Song Joong Ki: “I give all the honor to my big sunbae and beautiful, lovely partner, Hye Kyo noona. Thank you noona.”
2. They’re generous
Song Joong Ki said on Song Hye Kyo’s donation of 20,000,000 won (17,881 USD) to a shelter for comfort women victims, “It’s so touching … I learn things from her as an actor and person.”
For years, Song Hye Kyo has been donating to different causes. Most notably, she worked with museums worldwide to provide floor plans and guides written in Korean. The Korean pamphlet in New York City’s Museum of Modern Art is a work of hers.
3. The Song Song couple is romantic
They denied dating rumors twice–in New York and Bali–to protect each other. After the wedding announcement on July 5, Dispatch reported that Song Joong Ki had proposed to Song Hye Kyo at a restaurant in Tokyo called Mapu (麻布) in January, and she was in a flood of tears.
A Japanese fan of the couple shared more details on Twitter: “I heard from a friend who works at Mapu that Song Song couple and staff members had visited the restaurant and had a marriage proposal event … Song Hye Kyo cried and showed off the ring to a (probably “Descendants of the Sun”) staff member. Isn’t she cute? … I’m not sure the proposal happened that day, but they definitely had a kind of event. I’m happy they had it in Japan.”
4. Acting is their true passion
“After the wedding, we’re going to start filming,” Song Joong Ki said in Monday’s interview. “Both of us have so much work and there’s a lot to prepare before shooting starts. I don’t think we can travel (for honeymoon).” When asked about his next drama, Song Joong Ki replied, “Nothing is confirmed. I’m thinking more carefully about it than before because it would be my first drama after marriage.”
5. Their babies are going to be so adorable!
