On October 14, on Super Junior’s official homepage, member Sungmin confirmed the news of his upcoming marriage on December 13.
Here is his full statement:
“Hello, this is Sungmin. How should I start… I’ve thought about what to say for my first sentence countless times. After writing and erasing over and over again, the thoughts and voices of all the people I’m thankful for are coming up. With a heavy and careful heart, I’m writing this letter.
Everyone, I’m getting married on December 13. It makes me sad thinking about all the fans that must have been alarmed at the news. I wanted to personally break the news, but while thinking about how I should tell my good friends and loving E.L.F, the news reports came out first, and I’m really sorry for that.
Before revealing this news, I thought about it a lot, not because I was scared of the decision I had made, but because I was worried for the people I’m thankful for being shocked and hurt at the news. I’m a little bit late, but with the love and trust you’ve given me, I’ve gained the courage to relate the news.
I’m so thankful for all of you that have stood by me, watching the nothing that I was grow and mature, and I wanted to tell you all that I love you.
To everyone who has helped me until now, and to my fellow members and company that trust and support my decision, I am sincerely thankful. Continuing my activities, I’ll do my best to return everyone’s love and support.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
Both SM Entertainment and Golden Eight have made short statements to Korean media:
In a statement to Xports News, SM Entertainment said, “Nothing is going to change because Sungmin is married. Super Junior activities will proceed as planned.
Star News also reported a statement by Kim Sa Eun’s agency Golden Eight, who confirmed, “Kim Sa Eun is getting married to Sungmin on December 13. We are very pleased that the two, who care for each other very much, are getting married. Both recently met with each others’ parents.”
After confirmation of Sungmin and Kim Sa Eun’s wedding from both sides just one month after the couple went public, some have brought up the possibility that it is a shotgun wedding. However, a representative of Kim Sa Eun’s agency said that this is not true. The rep said to TV Daily, “The agency will shortly release an official statement regarding the marriage. It is not a shotgun wedding.”
