It’s official — Big Bang’s Taeyang and South Korean actress, singer Min Hyo-rin are getting married in February.
Min Hyo-rin’s label was the first one to comment on the news about the duo’s marriage and that they are already making preparations for the February wedding.
“It’s true they’re getting married. They haven’t set a date yet, but they are preparing quietly,” according to the agency, AllKpop reported.
YG Entertainment, the label that represents Big Bang member Taeyang, who is also known as SOL while performing in Japan, echoed the same thing in its statement, “It’s true that Taeyang and Min Hyo-rin will get married in February. They’ll be having their wedding before he enlists.“
The 29-year-old K-pop star is expected to enlist and serve in the military sometime in the first half of 2018.
An unnamed insider who has information about the matter suggested that the two South Korean superstars will not have a big fancy wedding — only a small one.
Taeyang (whose legal name is Dong Young-bae) and Min Hyo-rin began seeing each other in 2015; the dating rumor was confirmed by South Korean music executive Yang Hyun-suk to Daily Sports, Soompi reported.
Meanwhile, the “Eyes, Nose, Lips” singer took to his official Instagram account to thank everyone who supported his relationship with his 31-year-old fiancée. He wrote in the social media post:
“Hello everyone, this is Taeyang. Today, I want to share with you guys about the most important and joyful promise I have made in my life. I have pledged to spend the rest of my life with Min Hyorin, the one who has always stuck by me for the past four years. Through all the good times and the bad times, she has always believed in me and now I look forward to making a beautiful life together.
“To all the fans who always treated me as if I was family, to all of my Big Bang members, to all of my YG family, to everyone I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with and meet, I want to say THANK YOU. I will continue to live my life with responsibility and humility. My hope is that you will continue to support us and give your blessings for our future ahead as a couple.”
