Gary's plans to marry were kept a secret from even his 'Running Man' cast members with whom he spent 7 years, so many fans have been curious about their reaction, especially the reaction of 'Monday Couple' partner Song Ji Hyo. At the April 22nd 'Running Man' fan meeting held in Malaysia, Song Ji Hyo expressed, "The members found out about Gary's oppa's marriage through headlines. It'd be a lie to say there wasn't a sad feeling about it."
She continued, "I sincerely congratulate him on his marriage, and I hope he's happy and lives well. His phone number has changed, so please give me a call." HaHa also said, "I congratulated him on his marriage, but he didn't reply. Hyung is a very unique person. He'll probably contact us soon. We understand. We love Gary."
The members then yelled, "7012 Forever."
