Yoochun and C-JeS Entertainment have confirmed that he will be getting married this Fall. Yoochun’s agency has also released a statement regarding his marriage announcement.
“Park Yoochun has promised to marry his non-celebrity [girlfriend] this fall. This article was published [and] they have no detailed plans as of yet, so we are very wary of revealing anything else.
Park Yoochun is still in service as a social worker and his partner is a non-celebrity so we hope you understand and look upon them with warmth. Park Yoochun will continue his duty diligently until this August. Thank you.”

Media are also reporting that Yoochun and his soon-to-be-wife have been dating for some time now. She was allegedly with him during the entire rape accusations and comforted him during that time.
According to reports, the woman is the youngest daughter of Korean Food Corporation, Namyang Dairy‘s Founder. She is 27 years old while Yoochun is 30 years old.
The two met in September 2016 and will be getting married one month after Yoochun finishes his military service in September 2017. They will be having a closed wedding ceremony with only close friends and family.
“Yoochun’s bride-to-be was a close friend at first but their relationship progressed around the start of this year. Both of them recently decided to become a married couple.
Yoochun’s bride-to-be was next to Yoochun through thick and thin when he needed support. Through her support, Yoochun gained lots of strength and that’s how their relationship became closer.”

The news of Yoochun’s marriage comes as a total surprise to most, as it follows one of the most controversial scandals the JYJ singer has had since debut. On June 10, 2016, Yoochun was accused of raping a woman while at an adult entertainment establishment.
Multiple women began to accuse of him rape following the first, with a total of 5 woman coming forward. However, once the reports were investigated, it was revealed the first woman had lied and she was sentenced to jailtime.
Soon afterwards, Yoochun was declared completely innocent and cleared from all charges. He released a statement to the public afterward, through his agency.
“On March 13, 2017, the Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office have ruled that Park Yoochun is not guilty of the 4 rape accusations that were filed against him.
The second series of lawsuits filed against Park Yoochun at Gangnam Police Station in regards to prostitution were cleared for lacking any reason, and the plaintiff who made the accusation has been arrested by the Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office on the same day, on charges of making a false accusation.
As for the first series of lawsuits involving blackmail, the Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office ruled on January 1, 2017, that the plaintiff and three others are guilty of attempted blackmail and false accusations, and are sentenced to two years imprisonment.
In regards to the third and fourth lawsuits, the whereabouts of the plaintiffs were unknown, and therefore investigations for their false accusations could not go forward.
All of Park Yoochun’s cases from June last year are hereby cleared and he has been acquitted.”

However, his reputation still took an enormous hit when it was confirmed that he was at an adult entertainment establishment. Yoochun was with women while at these establishments and apologized to his fans after being found innocent.
“Regardless of the reason, Park Yoochun would like to bow his head and deeply apologize for not being a moral and responsible public figure and for causing such a social controversy as someone who once received a lot of love and support.
Also, thank you to all the domestic and international fans who watched the investigation and supported him until the end. Park Yoochun will use this incident as a chance to reflect back on his life and repent for his actions.”

While his marriage announcement is something to celebrate, fans are left wondering who the woman is and why the sudden announcement.
Yoochun was only declared completely innocent on March 17, 2017, and his marriage announcement comes only 1 month after his name was cleared.
