The Instagram Post Announcing AOA Yuna’s Marriage

Yuna, from AOA, posted two lovely photos from her wedding shoot along with a heartfelt message. The message read:

“Hello, this is Yuna.

First, to everyone who already saw the news, I wanted to convey the news with sincerity, so I wound up being a bit late.

I have found someone with whom I’d like to spend the rest of my life.

This approaching February, we plan to hold a wedding with just our close friends and family. He is a warm person who has always influenced me positively from by my side, and even during moments when I struggled and fell down, he always made it possible for me to get back up by unchangingly filling the empty spaces.

Thank you for cheering me on with all of your heart during all my moments after my debut.

Because I know how great the love is that you have given me, I will always remain in the same place as a Yuna who knows how to share that love and be generous.

Please look warmly upon us and give us lots of blessings for our future. I hope that all of your days will also be filled with only happy things.
Wishing you lots of good fortune in the new year.

Sincerely, Yuna.”

Who Is AOA?

AOA, short for Ace of Angels, is a South Korean girl group initially formed by FNC Entertainment in 2012. It had an original eight-member lineup. The members included Choa, Jimin, Yuna, Youkyung, Hyejeong, Mina, Seolhyun, and Dohwa. Over the years, there were departures, including Youkyung in 2016, Choa in 2017 due to mental health reasons, Mina in 2019 for acting pursuits, Jimin in 2020 amid bullying allegations, and Yuna in 2021. Currently, the group consists of Seolhyun, Hyejeong, and Dohwa.

AOA began their career as both a dance group and a band, debuting officially in July 2012 with the single album “Angel’s Story.” They achieved nationwide success in 2014 with hit songs like “Heart Attack,” which dominated various charts and remained one of the longest-charting singles on Melon’s Top 100 chart.
