Haha has revealed it was Byul’s piety that made him decide to marry her.
On August 15 at 12 p.m. (KST) at MBC’s Dream Center in Ilsan, Haha met with the press in a press conference to shed light on his surprise wedding announcement with Byul.
Appearing in a slick black suit, Haha bashfully opened by saying, “Little kid Haha will be getting married.”
Haha then shared, “Go Eun (Byul’s real name) is a loyal and dutiful daughter to her parents. Seeing her pray so fervently and attending to her father when he was ill made me think it would be possible to marry her. Her religious piety and her grounded way of living attracted me to her.”
Haha first revealed his surprise engagement to Byul a day before on August 14.
According to the couple, the two had known each other for many years but had only begun dating in March before deciding to set a wedding date of November 30.
