On February 3rd KST, Sung Joon’s agency released a letter that the actor wrote handwrite himself for his fans, in which he revealed that he’s both a husband and a father to his non-celebrity wife. The two had been dating for some time and were even dating throughout his military enlistment time since December 2018.
The letter said:
“Hello, this is actor Sung Joon.
I’m not very good at expressing myself, but after much thought, I’ve picked up this pen to explain my personal story.
Currently, I have been serving as a soldier in the South Korean army for a little over a year.
Around the time I joined the military, the biggest change of my life and also the happiest event of my life happened. It was the arrival of someone I love and will be with for the rest of my life. While happily making wedding plans, we learned the news we were going to have a baby.
It was a miracle and a blessing. But as I joined the army right away, I wanted to prioritize the protection of the two precious people that came to my life. So the legal process for marriage was carried out as soon as possible, and we did not have a wedding ceremony where we could personally greet many people. It was because I thought it would be the best thing for me to do when I was about to join the army.
Then a year passed, and recently, I was worried about my wife, who has endured everything alone without me, so I applied for a change of service. This helped me to start my remaining military service as a regular military worker [a special circumstances solider who can serve during the day, then go home at night].
As an inexperienced first-timer, I wanted to keep my family a little closer, and because of this I wanted to tell all of you honestly about my personal story as well, which I have delayed quite a bit.
Though it is great news, I feel bad for being unable to say anything right away, and as a beginning head of a household, I would be really happy if you could understand my story.
After finishing my remaining military service, I’ll be back both as actor Sung Joon and head of a family, with a stronger and more mature image than now.
With 2020’s new start, please look forward to more changes, and I’ll be sure to try my best.
Thank you always.”
Congrats to Sung Joon and his wife!
