A gold medalist in figure skating from the 2010 Winter Olympics, Kim Yuna, is getting married to singer Ko Woo-rim, who is part of the Forestella, a crossover vocal quartet.
Kim, 32, and Ko, 27, will tie the knot this October in Seoul, according to Korea’s skating legend’s agency, All That Sports, and Ko’s agency, Beat Interactive.
Their Agencies Confirmed The News
In addition to the couple being in a three-year dating relationship, the agencies also pointed out the wedding will take place privately. ‘All That Skate’ was an ice show that Kim and Ko attended in 2018, whereas a guest performer, Forestella, was invited, and they struck up a friendship. And after three years of dating, they decided that it was time to tie the knot,” they said in a press release.
It has been revealed that both Kim and Ko would like to have a small and intimate wedding ritual with only their family members and close friends, so wedding date details and place are not yet released and will remain private from the media.
Nevertheless, shortly after their announcement, there were media reports that the wedding would take place at the Shilla Hotel in Seoul on the 22nd of October. The agents, on behalf of the couple, however, did not make any explanations on the matter.
In May 2018, Kim Yu-Na And Ko Woo-Rim Met For The First Time
All That Sports reported that the two first met at the All That Skate ice show in 2018 and then announced their marriage after dating for three years after meeting each other at the event.
During an All That Skate Ice Show, which started the two’s romantic relationship, All That Sports first hosted a summer ice show in the name of “All That Skate Summer”. Each year, several figure skaters participate in the Gala program as a part of this event, including Kim Yu-na.
A spectacular ice show was held on May 20th, 2018, at the Mokdong Ice Rink in Yangcheon-gu, Seoul, as part of the All That Skate ice show. Kim Yu-na was seen on the ice rink for the first time four years ago since she retired from ice skating.
A performance by Ko Woo-rim with Men’s crossover group Forestella took place as part of the opening ceremony continuing the event’s second part, during which the group performed a celebratory performance. Four members of the group Forestella have graduated from Seoul National University: tenor Cho Min-kyu, bass Ko Woo-rim, musical actor Bae Doo-hoon, and chemistry researcher Kang Hyung-ho.
