Super Junior's Sungmin confirms the marraige rumours surrounding him and his girlfriend Kim Sa Eun are true via a heartfelt letter posted on SM Entertainment's official Super Junior website.
It reads as follows:
"To those who have allowed me to be who I am now. Dear E.L.F
Hello, this is Sungmin. Where I should start... I thought about what to say so many times starting with the first sentence. After writing and erasing and repeating this process several times... I'm more reminded of the faces and voices of those I'm thankful towards... and I'm delivering this letter with a heavy and cautious heart.
Everyone, I have met a great person and I will be getting married on December 13.
My heart aches as I think of everyone who must have been very shocked and surprised about the sudden news.
I'm sorry that I made you find out through articles first while I was contemplating how to first deliver the news to the E.L.F, who love me and are a dear friend to me, before anyone else...
To be honest, before I delivered this news, there were times that I had to withstand by myself as I felt conflicted with the thought of my own decision as well as those of everyone whom I've been with up until now. Rather than it being a fear about the decision I've made, I was more worried about whether everyone that I'm thankful towards would be too shocked or become hurt by this news that they've never gone through before. Although I'm a bit late, I'm gathering the courage to deliver the news myself from all the love and trust you've given me.
I want to say how much I love and feel sincerely thankful towards everyone who have stood by my side like a shadow and watched me grow and cheered me on.
I'm also thankful to everyone who has helped me up until now and the members and the agency who trusted and respected by decision. I will strive to become a Sungmin who continue to work hard in the future and return the love you have shown me."
