Sorry ladies but F.T. Island‘s Minhwan is officially off the market.
The singer announced today that he and former Laboum member Yulhee are engaged after posting the news to his Instagram account today, January 4.
Minhwan and Yulhee first confirmed they were in a relationship together in September 2017, two months before she gave up her role in girl group Laboum.
Their fast engagement has led many to believe that the couple are expecting their first child. Spokespersons for the pair were unable to confirm or deny the rumors, with a FNC Entertainment rep simply stated tat they were “looking into” the reports.
Meanwhile, Yulhee’s label, Global H Media, said today, January 4, “When Yulhee left Laboum last November there was never any mention of a pregnancy. We’re not sure of the exact truth in terms of pregnancy rumors.”
This morning Minhwan wrote a sweet letter about his bride-to-be on Instagram:
“Hello, this is Choi Minhwan.
To dearest Pri [Primadonnas]… I am writing this letter because I wanted to tell you first, officially.
I’ve come to a decision to reveal my honest heart after a long time of thinking and worrying, wondering how you all will take this news. We had a lot of ups and downs, but after confirming my love with my girlfriend through our trust and reliance on each other, we plan on bearing the fruit of this relationship.
After coming to such a huge life decision as marriage, I was thankful for the congratulations I received from so many people around me. I was able to feel how many thankful people I’m surrounded by, once again.
When I told my band members, whom I’ve been like a family with all this time since our debut, they congratulated me genuinely, and our bond grew stronger as we were able to discuss a different future with one another.
I don’t know how to repay you.. but I want to show my heart full of thanks to those of you who have become an existence I am thankful for in my life. I will never forget my thankfulness toward you, who have walked with me all this time for over 10 years.
I will repay you with great effort and with sincerity through music, where I stand right here, right now. Thank you so much.”
