Footballer Lee Chung-yong, who plays for the Bolton Wanderers in England's Championship, will marry his middle-school sweetheart at Hotel Shilla in Seoul on Saturday.
Their long friendship developed into an enduring long-distance romance in 2008.
"I started dating her because she has such a great personality," Lee said.
He said his fiancée gave him energy to sustain his life and injury-plagued career although they had to be separated by thousands of miles.
