UPDATE: A copy of Bloom Entertainment’s press release, translated by SCMP, reads as follows:

Hello, this is Bloom Entertainment and UAA.

Firstly, we’d like to thank local and international fans for their love and interest in Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo. Furthermore, we would like to ask your understanding regarding this sudden news.

Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo plan to be joined as a married couple on the last day of October 2017 when they host their wedding ceremony. As marriage is not a personal issue but one that involves the whole family, this was a situation that needed to be handled carefully.

As such, caution was needed until a wedding was confirmed before we could convey this announcement. We ask for everyone’s understanding.

We ask everyone to wish a happy future for these two people; the actors are planning on making a statement to their fans in the future. Thank you.
