Son Ye-jin’s agency, MS Team Entertainment, provided details of the wedding.

“The two, who have met with warm support and interest from many people, will hold the wedding in March in Seoul. As it is a difficult time for everyone due to the pandemic, according to the wishes of the two actors, they have decided to hold the event privately with parents and acquaintances from both families. We ask for your generous understanding of this,” it said.
