BIGBANG’s Taeyang has confirmed that he and his girlfriend of four years, actress Min Hyo Rin, will be tying the knot in February 2018. Their respective agencies also acknowledged the reports and clarified that it is not a shotgun wedding.
Today (Dec 18), the idol shared a sweet picture of the couple on his Instagram account, with statements in both Korean and English.
“I want to share with you guys about the most important and joyful promise I have made in my life”, he wrote. “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.”
The 29-year-old went on to thank “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 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.”
Taeyang and Hyo Rin, 31, were first revealed to be dating in June 2015. The pair met on the set of the music video for his hit single ‘Eyes, Nose, Lips’, which Taeyang admitted was written about her.
