I Wedding released pictures of the two’s studio shots yesterday in advance of what is to be a private event at Patio 9 wedding hall in Gangnam, southern Seoul.
“I’m so excited at the prospect of settling down, but also nervous at the thought of taking on such a responsibility,” said the LG Twins infielder. “I look forward to this next chapter of my life as well as next season with my faithful supporter and wife-to-be by my side.”
Joo issued a similar statement, saying, “As an athlete’s wife, I’ll be the best homemaker, and at work, I’ll be give it my all to become a TV personality who portrays a healthy image.”
The couple met in 2003 through Kia Tigers Player Cho Tae-soo, who was Seo’s roomie at the time and Joo’s elementary school classmate.
