During an appearance on Korean variety show Radio Star, SHINee’s Onew revealed that he felt betrayed when he found out that Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo were getting married through news articles.
The singer had acted with the couple in Descendants of the Sun, in which he acted as a doctor who works with Hye Kyo’s character, Kang Mi Yeon.
He said during the variety show that he didn’t realise the two were dating, but admitted to not being a good judge of such things. He added that unless told explicitly, he usually can’t figure out if two people are dating. “I didn’t know they were going to get married,” he said.
One of the hosts, Cha Tae Hyun, who is Joong Ki’s close friend, pointed out that Onew wasn’t present at the wedding, but fellow member Minho was there instead.

Minho clarified that he had been close to Joong Ki for a long time because not only did they debut around the same time, but they also appeared on the second season of sports variety programme Let’s Go Dream Team together. The pair continued to keep in touch over the years.
The Song-Song couple reportedly started dating in 2015, but didn’t confirm their relationship until last year, when they announced that they were tying the knot. They held their wedding reception on October 31, 2017.
