Since their July 5th marriage announcement, Song Joong Ki has given interviews here and there, each time unveiling a tiny detail about marriage proposal and wedding with Song Hye Gyo. Here’s everything you need to know about the Descendants of the Sun couple's proposal and wedding!

1. Song Joong Ki proposed to Song Hye Gyo at a Tokyo restaurant in January

“In the beginning of 2017, we promised to spend the rest of our lives together,” Song Joong Ki has written for his fan cafe.

What made Song Song couple’s marriage possible was Song Joong Ki’s wedding proposal. The actor proposed to his girlfriend at a Tokyo restaurant called Mapu (麻布) in January, according to Dispatch.

A Japanese fan of the couple shared more details on Twitter: “I heard from a friend who works at Mapu that Song Song couple and staff members had visited the restaurant and had a marriage proposal event … Song Hye Gyo cried and showed off the ring to a (probably Descendants of the Sun) staff member. Isn’t she cute? … It’s uncertain whether he proposed that day but they definitely had some sort of event. I’m happy it happened in Japan.”

2. The Song Song couple’s wedding most likely won’t be lavish

Luxury hotels, wedding dresses, resorts for honeymoon, and gifts are up for grabs for the Song Song couple. They’ve declined all suggestions, hinting their wedding won’t be lavish.

“Thankfully, we’re receiving a lot of sponsorship proposals, but we’re currently turning all down,” an insider explained, according to Sports Chosun.

3. Ok Joo Hyun will sing at the wedding

According to singer Lee Jung Hyun of The Battleship Island, when she offered Song Joong Ki to sing at his wedding, he politely declined, telling her that Ok Joo Hyun will sing at the wedding.

Ok Joo Hyun and Song Hye Gyo have been friends for a long time. Song attends Ok's musicals from time to time.

4. No honeymoon is planned yet

While talking about workload, Song Joong Ki said, “I don't think we can travel (for honeymoon)." If there would be a honeymoon, we speculate it’d be a short trip like Rain and Kim Tae Hee’s to Bali.

5. The couple will get back to work right after the wedding

"After the wedding, we're going to start filming," Song Joong Ki said in Monday's interview. "Both of us have so much work and there are a lot to prepare before the shooting starts.”

Regarding his next drama, Song Joong Ki replied, "Nothing is confirmed. I'm thinking more carefully about it than ever before because it would be my first drama after marriage."


The Song Song couple is one of the seven couples who fell in love on set and one of the 14 couples who made their relationship official in 2017.

Congratulations again, Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Gyo!
