Actors So Yi-hyun and In Kyo-jin will tie the knot on Oct. 4, their management agencies said on Wednesday. The surprise news came just two days after they officially made their relationship public on Monday.

The couple first met 12 years ago when they belonged to the same agency, giving them ample opportunities to get to know and bond with each other. Their respective parents have also long known one another.

Their agencies said that In proposed to So last month and So accepted happily.

The two actors played a couple in an SBS drama in 2008 and husband and wife in the JTBC show "Happy Ending" in 2012.
