Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo had announced that they will tie the knot on October 31. However, many rumours started circulating that the 31-year-old actor's father is against their union.
During an interview, the Running Man star's father squashed all the reports. He said, as quoted by Soompi: "[Song Joong Ki] is at the best age to get married so I'm glad he's engaged. As parents, we've decided to respect our son's decision. People were saying I was against their marriage, but that's a misunderstanding."
Joong Ki's father also shared his thoughts on the actor's life after the wedding. He added: "Now that my son will be having a stable family after marriage, I hope he works even harder to become an actor who can also be responsible for his household. I think my son will be able to achieve that."
Talking about Joong Ki's childhood home, he shared: "He still visits every now and then and even brings over his friends. His close friend Lee Kwang Soo frequently comes over. There was also a time when Song Hye Kyo, Jin Goo, and Kim Ji Won slept over because the filming location of 'Descendants of the Sun' was close to our home."
Joong Ki and Hye Kyo shot to fame after starring in Descendants of the Sun. In the hit drama, Joong Ki plays the lead role as Captain Yoo Shi Jin, and Hye Kyo reprises the role of doctor named Kang Mo-Yeon.
