Actress Lee Si-young, who recently finished the MBC drama 'Lookout' is indeed getting married this year and she is also pregnant. She took to Instagram and posted a personal message explaining in detail her plans.
Website Soompi has provided the full statement, which can be read as follows, "Hello, this is Lee Si Young." She begins, continuing, "It's a little embarrassing, but this is the first time I'm writing a letter through social media. Rather than having everyone learn about it through reports, I wanted to be the one to share the news personally. I'm hoping that misunderstandings will not happen later on if I share the news myself.
"I am planning to marry the person I love in the fall. It might be a bit sudden, but after the drama finished, I discussed it with our families and we came to this conclusion. The reason why we've suddenly scheduled plans for the ceremony is because I am 14 weeks pregnant and will soon become a mother.
"I found out about it while I was filming for the drama, and so I was worried and a little scared at the sudden news, but I was firstly grateful that a new life was coming. But because I had such a busy schedule, I honestly didn't know what to do. I also didn't want the drama production team to receive any damage if the news got out, and so I couldn't tell anyone.
"My biggest fear was that our drama would receive damage, and so my future husband and I did not tell the staff, our families, and even the agency until the drama was over. Of course the action scenes and wire scenes were not easy, but watching the baby grow healthily gave me courage and I became more positive during filming than I was for any other previous filming.
"Because it wasn't just about me anymore, I became more brave and grateful while doing the hard action scenes. Before writing this message, I personally told the directors and the staff on set [about the news] as well as the agency, and I felt more apologetic and grateful when they responded by saying they felt sorry [for not knowing]. After discussing with both families, we decided to hold the wedding on September 30 of this year.
"In the future, I will be working hard during the remaining filming and I am planning on working hard to prepare to become a good mother. I will strive to become more humble and thankful as a good wife and a good mother. I would appreciate it if you could please support us. Thank you."
The actress's husband is a non-celebrity businessman with who she has been in a relationship with since last fall, notes Allkpop. Also, Soompi had noted that her agency said on July 12, "It is true that Lee Si Young is dating someone seriously with marriage in mind since she is at an appropriate age to be married. However, there are absolutely no plans contrary to what was reported." asserting further, "There is no truth to the fall marriage rumors." It seems that even her agency had no knowledge of her marriage plans as Fall begins usually on September 22.
Congratulations to the happy couple and their respective families. They have two joyful events to celebrate.
