Shin Ae Announces Engagement
Actress Shin Ae, who was Alex’s other half on the hit show We Got Married in 2008, will actually be tying the knot for within a few months. Her agency announced that Shin Ae is planning for a 2009 May or June wedding.
Her fiance is two years older than her (29; 27) and is currently studying abroad in Seattle. She reportedly began dating him at the beginning of this year, although their parents have been close family friends for a long time. Shin Ae strongly denied rumours that she was dating someone back in December of 2008.
It was stated that Shin Ae decided to rush wedding plans due to her father’s deterioriating health. Her father is reportedly sick and about to retire. As his only daughter, she wanted to show filial piety to her father through this upcoming marriage.
KP’s note: For those of you not familiar with Korean culture, you may find it difficult to believe that getting married is considered an important filial duty…. but it is.
