MANILA, Philippines – FORESTELLA singer Ko Woo-rim and Olympic award-winning figure skater Kim Yuna are about to tie the knot!
Their respective agencies, Beat Interactive and All That Sport, verified the couple’s engagement on Monday, July 25. They shared that Ko Woo-rim and Kim Yuna will be wed in a private ceremony in October.
“The wedding ceremony will be carried out privately with close relatives and acquaintances, so we ask for generous understanding from the many fans and media for not revealing the specific details of the wedding date and wedding hall location,” read Soompi’s translated copy of the statement from Beat Interactive.
Ko Woo-rim and Kim Yuna first crossed paths in 2018, when FORESTELLA performed at the All That Skate Ice Show. After their meet-cute, the singer and the skater dated for three years before proposing marriage.

Beat Interactive assured fans that Ko Woo-rim will continue to release music after the marriage.
