Kwang Soo eventually made a cameo in Joong Ki’s drama, DotS, in which he was the lead actor. His appearance there was the story behind the photos he posted on social media in response to the #SongSongCouple engagement.
Lee Kwang Soo took to Instagram to air his hilarious reaction to his best bud getting married to someone else. Being his usual self, the Running Man cast member created a collage of photos of a rock and Song Joong Ki writing on the rock.
