Song Joong Ki, Song Hye Kyo to move into S$11.98 million house?

If you haven't heard yet, Hallyu A-listers Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo will be tying the knot on October 31.

The Descendants of the Sun co-stars surprised many with the sudden news yesterday, given that they have never formally acknowledged dating news that has been circulating for over a year.

After the news broke, there has been more information about the pair's love story released to the media. According to their acquaintances, the actors started developing feelings for each other even before Descendants aired. The drama was entirely pre-produced and was filmed in the latter half of 2015.

Another source claimed that Song Hye Kyo was initially reluctant to date a fellow celebrity, given that she has had two public relationships with her former co-stars Lee Byung Hun (for the drama All In) and Hyun Bin (for the drama The Worlds They Lived In). After they started dating, they are said to have followed each other overseas for their respective schedules outside of South Korea.

The couple reportedly did not actively try to hide their relationship, and would neither deny nor confirm if someone close to them asked them if they were in a relationship.

Photos released by Korean news outlet Dispatch showed Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo out on three different dates, two of which were in South Korea, and one of which was in Japan. The photos were taken over a number of months, which shows that the couple has been in a relationship for some time.

The topic of their Bali trip resurfaced as well, with some speculating that it was for their wedding pictorial. Song Hye Kyo's agency, UAA, denied these claims and asked for the public to refrain from speculation.

Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo also penned letters to their fans and the public, with Song Joong Ki expressing, "I promise to live my life as a great actor and a reliable head of the family. I sincerely hope that all of you will continue supporting our relationship."

Meanwhile, in her letter, Song Hye Kyo explained, "At the beginning, Joong Ki was a colleague who I could get along with well. As we worked on a project together, we realised that we have similar values (...) and we continued to keep in touch after filming ended because he was a good friend and colleague.

Over time, the faith and trust that Joong Ki showed me allowed me to imagine a future with him. I was thankful that he had genuine feelings towards me, and I was also able to confirm my own feelings for him."

She ended off her letter with, "The two of us will live happily. Please give us your blessings, thank you."

Another piece of news that has resurfaced was the report that Song Joong Ki had purchased a KRW10 billion (S$11.98 million) house in January this year. This has led to speculation that the pair will be moving into the hosue after they get married.

The property is located in an affluent part of the Itaewon district, and fellow celebrity couple Rain and Kim Tae Hee are believed to own a home in the same neighbourhood. Neither of the actors' labels have confirmed nor denied these claims.
