They went public with their relationship in September, announcing they had been dating for two years and were planning to marry soon.

It has been a long-distance relationship for the couple, both 31, as Ryu has been playing in the U.S. since 2012 while Bae has continued her career in Korea.

"Ryu and Bae are currently preparing for their wedding. We hope that fans wish them a wonderful life together," Bae's agency said.

The wedding will take place on Jan. 5.
