Buzzing: Sneak peek at Song-Song wedding invite

Sneak peek at Song-Song wedding invite

The invite to the Oct 31 wedding of South Korean actors Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki has come to light.

Days ago, a Chinese media outlet published a photo of a white card tied with a ribbon and a stem with two red paper hearts.

On Tuesday, a South Korean website shared a photo of the inside of the card, which is printed in Korean and English.

A passage, in awkward English, read: "Finally found the right person we have been waiting for a long time. Please come and share with us on this joyful day your wisdom and courage that you've learned along the journey of your life. Your enlightenment will guide us to walk through our own adventure."
