Wonder Girls′ Sunye has shared her thoughts on her impending marriage.

Sunye will walk down the aisle at 12:30 p.m. at the Lotte Hotel in Seoul’s Jung-gu, where she will get married to her Korean-Canadian boyfriend James Park.

On being the first among her idol group peers to get married, Sunye shared, “I didn’t plan on being the first currently active idol member to get married, but it just happened that way. Just like my senior idol group members, I want to get married and lead a happy life.”

When asked what made her decide on marriage, Sunye responded, “Rather than it being something that I decided on, I would like to say getting married is the beginning of my life’s goals and direction. Although I’m young, after experiencing many difficult things, I was leading a life where I was performing passionately on stage because being a singer was my dream from a young age, but as time passed I felt this was how I needed to direct my life. And naturally getting married became the starting point of that. It is my life’s turning point.”

When asked what her future plans were regarding children, she said, “I would like to have a daughter and a son. I would like for them to have the pretty traits of both my husband and myself.”

Sunye emphasized once more that she was not pregnant and that the marriage was not a shotgun wedding.

The Wonder Girls member also made clear she wasn’t retiring permanently as a singer, saying, “I’m not retiring as a singer but it is difficult for me to say when I will resume activities [as a singer]. I don’t know in what form but even if it’s not through a broadcast, I will make sure my voice keeps singing.”

She continued, “I think I was able to find the courage and strength to get married through the encouragement and well wishes of my other members. I know many are disappointed, but I believe the Wonder Girls members will have plenty of time to show themselves through a wide variety of ways.”

Sunye’s wedding will be divided into two parts with 2AM’s Jo Kwon to MC both parts. The congratulatory song will be sung by Park Jin Young and Sunye’s fellow JYP Entertainment artists while Sunye’s pastor at her church will officiate the closed wedding ceremony.

Following her wedding, Sunye will head to the Maldives for her honeymoon while beginning her new married life in Canada.
