When I wrote in the last few months about the great Korean star wedding bonanza of 2017, kicked off in early February with Rain and Kim Tae Hee walking down the aisle, there was no substantive gossip about Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo getting married. Outside of die hard committed Song-Song shippers this was a far-fetched pipe dream which has not vaulted 2017 into untouchable territory. I’m not sure there will be another year with this many top Korean star weddings in the same year and that’s fine with me, the Song-Song news was as close as break the Korean internet as it gets and I love it! More excitement please and not of the scandal variety.
The media was already following everything Song Joong Ki thanks to his top star status and the fact that he’s promoting the end of July release of Battleship Island, but with this wedding news realistically the intensity has grown exponentially. Thankfully he’s always been a grounded actor and has fantastic poise so his first media frenzy public appearance since the wedding news broke just happened to be at night and in the rain but makes no difference for how charming and glowing he came across. The man certainly looks content and I’m so happy for him!
