Why the hush-hush affair? Choi added that she had to be cautious about unveiling the news so as not to burden her in-laws.
According to Choi's agency YG Entertainment, the pair would be having an intimate and private wedding ceremony with close family members in attendance "as the groom is not an entertainer but an ordinary office worker." They also added that the couple had been dating for a year. (Here are other Korean celebrity couples who've revealed their relationships in 2018.)
