Former T-ara Member Han Areum Announces Marriage
Former T-ara member Han Areum is getting married next year!
On August 13, Han Areum took to her Instagram to announce her marriage to a non-celebrity businessman.
Read her full post below.
I thankfully came to meet someone who taught me how to love. He also taught me how to receive love and is someone who has been there for me when life got difficult. He is someone I love and someone who tells me everyday that I am a precious and beloved being. The reason I am saying this is because I am finally getting married as a fully fledged 26-year-old adult!
I hesitated a lot regarding whether I should or should not share this, but after looking properly at myself, I decided that it was only right to announce it. To my fans who support me as well as my friends and acquaintances around me, since you have all always been such a big source of strength for me, I think it’s only natural to share this blessing with you all. That is why I am abruptly sharing this news! We have reserved the wedding hall for February 9, 2020, and there are many things that we must coordinate and prepare for before then. I really respect those who have gotten married.
Now that I am no longer living life alone, I will remember that I have someone I love and act more responsibly in everything I do. In order to become a more proper person, I will live in a fitting manner to create a more positive influence in our world. To my boyfriend who gives me the courage to only think positive thoughts and listens to my complaints, thank you for giving me endless positive strength. Whether we live a boring or happy life, no matter what situation we find ourselves in, let’s try to help each other out and hold hands for a long time. When we are having a hard time, let’s share the struggles between us, and let’s share good news with lots of people. We will live well.

I met a grateful person who taught me how to love. He taught me how to receive it, and he's a grateful man who held me firmly when I was in danger with a feeling of grasping at straw. I'm a comfortable and loving person who tells me that I'm precious every day. And that's why I'm saying this. I finally got married at the age of 26 when I became an adult! I hesitated a lot about whether I should tell you or not, but now that I've corrected myself and looked at the reality, I think it's right to tell you. Fans who support me, fans who support me, friends who are grateful to me, and friends. It's been my biggest support. Of course, we have to share our blessings with you, so I'm sending you this sudden news! We received a good day on February 9, 2020 and the reservation of the wedding hall has been completed. Before that, we have to work hard to meet each other and prepare a lot.I really respect the married people.??? Finally, in my future life, I will remember that I have a loved one, not a single one, and I will live a more upright life so that I can be the right person to be more responsible and have a better influence on the world. Good brother who gives courage and accepts fighting spirit so that he can come up with such a good idea. Thank you so much and thank you for giving me so much light power! Even if it's a boring life path, even if it's a happy life path, let's be supportive of each other at any time and in any situation, so that we can join hands and walk far away. If you are tired, let's share it with each other and share the joys with more people, and let's live like that! I'll be fine. ????
Lastly, she shared the following messages through three other separate posts:
Unlike me, the person I love is a regular businessman who has never had a hard time because of the public eye. While I was keeping him to myself in case he felt pressured by being exposed to so many people, I also wanted to protect him from any harm caused by being associated with me. I believe that you will all kindly avoid any actions that will affect him. He is a very kind and special person. Please refrain from any actions that could hurt his feelings.
After feeling emotionally exhausted from lots of trial and error, I have come back to my senses. I will now work hard! If you are all at the end of the road that I am currently on, I would be as happy as can be. However, even if that is not the case, I will always be happy! I love you and thank you.
Since I have many things to prepare for in the near future, I don’t know if I will be able to share life updates. But I will still show you a pretty and bright side of me, so let’s always be happy! I love you.
Han Areum joined T-ara in 2012 but left the group in 2013 due to health reasons. She garnered attention again in 2017 for her appearance on KBS’s “The Unit.”
Congratulations to the couple!
