Since the airing of the hot Korean military romance drama Descendants of the Sun last year (we hear local actress Rebecca Lim is a huge fan), dating rumours have been brewing for onscreen couple Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo.

But the two stars have repeatedly dispelled those rumours, right up till last month when the pair was speculated to have met up in Bali.

However, things took a swift and surprising change when the celebrities’ managing agencies announced the couple’s wedding date just yesterday.

Their agencies, Blossom Entertainment and UAA said: “Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo plan to marry on October 31, 2017.”

Following the release of the sudden news, fans of the soon-to-wed duo quickly took to social media to express their surprise and well wishes for the Songs.

Asia waits with breath that is bated for their wedding later this year. What will the bride wear? Perhaps an off-shoulder gown to flaunt her ladylike side and match it with natural Korean curls?

One thing’s for sure; we’ll have to wait until October to find out.
