The couple met recently as seen in their Instagram, where Sasha congratulated Jay for doing well in the army and trying his best to reach her:
“My love, we finally met today. I know that you are not able to read this right now anyway. But I really want you know that I am so proud of you! Being 5th of the best soldiers from 180 people is very cool! Thank you so much for trying and working so hard to get all that chances to call me. I really appreciate it. I already miss you and [I’m] waiting for our next meeting which will be very soon.”
Sasha also shared how difficult it is to keep up with time:
“Just called Jay for 5 minutes. Asked whether I was good at home after our meeting yesterday. He was very worried yesterday about how I will get home. After all, the army is three hours from Seoul by bus, plus then by Seoul on subway, with a transfer to the bus for another hour and a half to go.”
“It was hard, of course, [I was] very afraid yesterday that I was just not going to get to Jay. That somewhere I would get lost and no one would help me.”
This is not the first time the two have been apart. Last year, Sasha was in tears as Jay left for Korea:
Needless to say, this couple won’t let anything come their way — and we love it!
