Following the wedding announcement of Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo, Lee Kwang-soo posted an old photo of Song Joong-ki showing the actor confessing his eternal love for friend Lee Kwang-soo. He then captioned the photo asking why Joong-ki made such promises.

This was meant as a joke, of course. However, other 'Running Man' members decided to tease Kwang-soo regarding the post.

On July 5, Lee Kwang-soo's instagram post showed a photo of Song Joong-ki, writing on a rock, "Joong Ki ♥ Kwang Soo (Asian prince) 2015.10.14." Both the actors were filming 'Descendants of the Sun' back then, with Lee Kwang-soo appeared only as a small cameo. Kwang-soo's caption read, "What was all this, then?" Koreaboo noted that Lee Kwang-soo's post had become viral.

Website Koreaboo notes that the 'Running Man' members have targeted the post to tease Lee Kwang-soo. Ji Suk-jin's reply was short and hilarious, saying, "You were just a fling." Kim Jong-kook's reply didn't help much either. In fact, Jong-kook made Kwang-soo's predicament worse by saying, "You just have one more person you must serve now, Kwang Soo... don't be so shocked..," indicating that he'll have to serve Song Hye-kyo now, in addition to Song Joong-ki.

Earlier, responding to Lee Kwang-soo's post, a hysterically funny post was made on the Instagram profile 'songjoongkionly' showing a bizarre photo of the adult Kwang-soo's head morphed onto the body of an little girl on Song Joong-ki's arms, with Song Hye-kyo standing just beside him.

Meanwhile, Koreaboo also notes that Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo's marriage would not be possible if certain laws weren't scrapped in South Korea. A law as stated under article 809 of the Korean Civil Code was repealed that prevented any Korean person from marrying another with the same surname and ancestral home.

In 1997 courts ruled the law unconstitutional after an estimated 200,000 people within the same clan got married to each other. In 2005, amendment to the article passed in 2002, came into effect, only prohibiting marriage between men and women who are closely related. So, SongSong fans have nothing to worry about. Lee Kwang-soo can now prepare himself to serve them both, as suggested by Kim Jong-kook.

Song Hye-kyo and Song Joong-ki will get married on October 31, this year.
