Actor Song Joong-ki promised to become a faithful household head after he announced his decision to tie the knot in October with his lover in South Korea's hit drama "Descendants of the Sun".

"As a great actor, I will live faithfully as a household head," the 31-year-old said in a message to his fan page, adding he and actress Song Hye-kyo, 35, agreed at the start of the year to spend the rest of their life together.

He apologized to fans, saying he had to be careful about his romance so that it would not affect the production of his upcoming movie, "The Battleship Island".

The marriage of two big stars was set for October 31. Their agencies had dismissed rumors about their love. The sudden announcement followed reports they were seen staying together on the Indonesian resort island of Bali last month. They said they had to take a cautious stance "because marriage is not just an individual affair but a link-up between two families".

In a separate message, the actress said the couple had a "good time" even after the drama ended, sharing similar ideas and philosophy. She said she decided to marry Joong-ki because of "trust and faith" he has shown for a long time.

The popularity of Songs who played a soldier-doctor couple in the 2016 drama has been phenomenal across Asia, and fans wanted them to become lovers in their real life, according to a survey published in January.
