Before they become a couple, they had been friends for a long time. Both Go and Im were going to same church, and their growing faith served as momentum. This couple were noted as unique by the fans, because relationships between comedians and actors rarely happen. Not only that, but the fact that they had been dating for 15 years takes their relationship to another level. Before they wed, they released their pre-wedding pictures. Take a look!
