Lee Hyo-ri to marry in the fall


Lee Sang-soon and Lee Hyo-ri

Following the big announcement of the day - actors Won Bin and Lee Na-young dating - another bomb was dropped by singer Lee Hyo-ri. It seems love was all around yesterday as Ilgan Sports reported that Lee Hyo-ri, 34, will wed her longtime boyfriend, singer Lee Sang-soon, 38, in September.

“The two have already sat down with their parents and those who are close to the couple have known,” a source told Ilgan Sports. Apparently, Lee Hyo-ri is so besotted that she’s telling everyone that she’s never “felt this way.”

The pair has been dating since 2011 and it was a shocking announcement at the time as Lee Hyo-ri is deemed far more attractive and successful than her beau of the band Roller Coaster. The two got close through their involvement in animal rights activism.

In May, when Lee Hyo-ri appeared on the show “Thank You” on SBS, she said that if she was to marry, she wanted it to be with Lee Sang-soon. Meanwhile, Lee Sang-soon appeared on the same show last month and talked about how the two came to be.

“She asked me out,” Lee Sang-soon told viewers, and said it was kept a secret for some time because he didn’t want to damage his girlfriend’s reputation.

Lee Hyo-ri made her debut with the girl group Fin.K.L back in the late ’90s, and through constant reinvention, has become one of the nation’s favorite entertainers.
