Kevin said, "Two years ago, I met a girl. Our love was full—yes, daunting at times—but we proved to each other.. that we need each other. In her, I've met my best friend for life, my soulmate. And soon, I'll be able to call her my wife."
The singer also revealed that he wants their wedding to be intimate in his hometown, which is New York.
"This fall, we will be getting married quietly in my hometown... Perhaps it would be more fitting to hold the ceremony publicly here in Seoul. But for selfish reasons, I wanted to celebrate in the presence of my family. Hope you understand," he continued.
The 31-year-old singer also told his fans that he is "preparing some new music" that he hopes to share with them soon and said that the coming days is"a new start" to both his life and music.

The singer, meanwhile, performed the original soundtracks of Chicago Typewriter, More Than Friends, and Snowdrop, among others.
