Particularly, Park Shin Hye waited for Choi Tae Joon while he was serving in the military. The two quietly nurtured their love for five years and finally achieved a fruitful outcome. 

At the time, Park Shin Hye cautiously stated, “It’s still early to say, but a precious life has come to us during the process of preparing for marriage. Even after starting a family, I will show you a good side of myself.”

Choi Tae Joon also expressed his affection, announcing his marriage news with Park Shin Hye on his fan cafe. He said, “She is like a dear friend who silently teaches me how to smile brightly when I’m happy and how to cry out loud when I’m sad.” 

He further stated, “Now, as a member of a family, I will show a responsible side, and as an actor Choi Tae Joon, I will live up to your expectations.

Song Joong Ki welcomed his first child with his girlfriend Katy Louise Saunders after his divorce. Many people speculated about Katy’s pregnancy after seeing a video of Song Joong Ki and Katy arriving at the airport together. 


At the time, Katy was wearing loose-fitting clothes and was seen touching or covering her belly while moving. Additionally, a large diamond ring was captured on the fourth finger of her right hand, indicating their engagement.

Eventually, Song Joong Ki admitted Katy’s pregnancy only after registering their marriage. Through his official fan cafe, he stated, “I have pledged to spend my future life with Katy Louise Saunders, who has supported me by my side.” 

He continued, “We naturally dreamed of creating a happy family together. We have made a lot of effort to keep our promises to each other, and we are sincerely grateful that a precious life has come to both of us.” 

These days, celebrities confidently announce their premarital pregnancies. They have taken a completely opposite approach from the past, where premarital pregnancy was somewhat considered shameful in Korea. This signifies that the public’s perception of it has changed.
