Super Junior's Ryeowook Announces Marriage with Former TAHITI Member Ari: Heartfelt Letter Shared

Ryeowook will soon tie the knot! The Super Junior member broke the news to fans on Instagram on March 29 by sending a handwritten note. This is how the letter is written:

“To our ELF whose existence is like blue starlight Hello. This is Super Junior’s Ryeowook. I have some news that I wanted to share directly with our ELF, my most precious friends, who always send me love and support with all their hearts. This is a letter written with the hope that my sincerity is conveyed to all of you.

I first met ELF in early winter at the age of 19 on November 6, 2005 And now I am 38-year-old Kim Ryeowook, in my 20th year since debut. Whether then or now, our ELFs have always steadfastly stood by our side. I think we have become stronger, having experienced both happy and sad moments together. Therefore, I am eager to convey this news first but also cautious about doing so. As you are aware, there is someone I am seeing.

Over the time we spent together, I naturally developed a desire to become family with her. This is not a sudden decision but one I’ve been deliberating for a long time, and after long discussion with the members and agency staff, I decided to have my wedding this spring in late May. I am always grateful to the ELF who has supported Kim Ryeowook although I have been imperfect and clumsy until now.

On the other hand, I also feel apologetic to those of you who may have been surprised by this news. I will continue to work hard as Super Junior’s Ryeowook and as singer Ryeowook for all of you who support me performing with the members and want to listen to my singing nevertheless. Also, I would like to thank our members and SM staff who have supported my decision and given me strength.

ELF! The weather is still quite cold. Always dress warmly, and be careful to not catch a cold. I always feel grateful and love you.” Ryeowook first confirmed his relationship with former TAHITI member Ari in 2020. Congratulations to Ryeowook and Ari!
