Following the announcement that the SongSong couple are actually engaged to be married, their acquaintances revealed how Song Hye-kyo and Song Joong-ki fell in love with each other. It is being learnt now that Song Joong-ki's mother is very happy that Song Hye-kyo will be her daughter-in-law.
Website Koreaboo notes that Song Joong-ki's mother is very pleased with her son's choice and simply said, "I am happy. It's great news." Seeing as the SongSong couple had already informed the people they trusted, it is very likely that the families of both the actors knew of their marriage plans.
News outlet Joonggang Ilbo had noted that Sports Seoul had talked directly with Song Joong-ki's mother on July 5. In an interview with 'W Korea' magazine for its May issue, Song Joong-ki had revealed that he desired to settle down and said, "Family is the most important to me. They've been the greatest lesson and gift in life, and it's a direction I want to follow."
Apart from his parents, Song Joong-ki has an elder brother named Song Seung-gi and a younger sister named Song Seul-gi. All there are very close to each other. Photos of Song Joong-ki's family members have been shared by Koreaboo.
Song Joong-ki had added that his desire to start a family became stronger after the birth of his nephew. He said, "I try to balance my work life as an actor and my family. Ultimately, I want to be a good dad and a good husband. I think that's the best."
In this connection, it must be mentioned that rumours about whether Song Hye-kyo was pregnant was dismissed by the actress through her agency's statement. United Artists Agency said, "This rumour is completely groundless."
A rumour began spreading following SongSong couple's wedding announcement that the 'Descendants of the Sun' co-stars were tying the knot because Song Hye-kyo was pregnant with Song joong-ki's baby. One netizens pointed out that if the couple wanted to hide their pregnancy by getting married, then they would not have chosen such a far off date as October 31.
Meanwhile, Soompi noted that MBC's show 'Section TV,' which was criticised for revealing unauthorised photos of the SongSong couple's Bali trip, had a message for the engaged couple. "We definitely think they had a valid reason to deny the dating rumours. We congratulate them on their [upcoming] marriage, and we hope they will live happily as a global couple for a very long time," the production staff of 'Section TV' said adding, "'Section TV' will continue from now on to check facts quickly and accurately."
