안녕하세요. 가수 벤입니다. 이 소식을 어떻게 전하면 좋을지 고민하고 또 고민했지만 .. 그래도 저를 늘 아껴주시고 사랑해주시는 팬분들께 이 소식만큼은 제 손으로 직접 전하고 싶어 부족한 글솜씨지만 이렇게 글을 쓰게 되었습니다. 부족한 저에게 평생을 함께 하기로 약속한 사람이 생겼습니다. 저희 둘 다 완벽하진 않지만 서로의 허물은 덮어주고 부족한 부분은 채워주며 예쁘고 행복하게 살아보려고 합니다. 조심스러운 시기이기에 결혼식은 양가 부모님과 가까운 친지들만 모시고 소규모로 진행하려고 합니다. 한결같이 저를 믿고 응원해주시는 팬분들께 진심으로 감사드리며 계속해서 좋은 음악으로 보답하겠습니다. 모두가 힘든시기를 보내고 있지만 항상 건강 유의하시고 행복하시기를 바라겠습니다. 감사합니다. – 가수 벤 올림 –
Hello, This is singer Ben.
I thought long and hard about how to tell you all this news, but I wanted to tell my fans first, who always care for me and send me their love. I wanted to tell you myself, so I am writing this.
There is a person who I promised to be with for the rest of my life.
Neither of us are perfect, but we will try to live well and happily together, covering each other’s faults and filling in those gaps.
Since it is a time to be cautious right now, we will be having a small ceremony with only our parents and close relatives. I would like to thank my fans who always believe in me and support me. I will continue to repay that love and support with good music.
Everyone is having a difficult time right now, but I hope you all stay happy and healthy.
Back in September 2019, Ben confirmed her relationship to Lee Wook. At that point, the two had only been dating for three months, which means they will be getting married after a total of 15 months of dating. Lee Wook was born in 1988 and graduated from Hanyang University with a Law degree. He is currently running the W Foundation, which aims to take the lead in tackling climate change, providing emergency relief for refugees, and running conservation campaigns around the world.
