Lee Min-ho and Suzy Bae is the couple most people aspire to be. The Korean celebrities' feelings for each other seem mature and the two often sound like a couple who is deeply comfortable and happy with each other. Of course, this is a stage most couples reach when they are in a long-term relationship and the "Bounty Hunters" cast member has even said that he wants the relationship to last longer i.e, marriage. But will this take place any time soon?

Rumours about the "Boys over Flowers" actor's plans to get married surfaced after his agency MYM Entertainment and Suzy Bae's agency, JYP Entertainment, confirmed that the two stars are still dating after several media outlets reported on their rumoured break-up.

This latest update from Lee Min-ho and Suzy Bae's agencies garnered the much-needed reassurance that fans needed but interestingly, it gave rise to another speculation, one which suggests that Lee Min-ho will propose to Suzy Bae before he enlists in the military.

Lee Min-ho, 28, will have to complete the mandatory military service before he turns 32. According to MYM Entertainment, the "Gangnam Blues" star will enlist in early 2017 and he might be away for a period of two years. However, the company didn't mention that the Korean actor will propose to Suzy Bae before he enlists himself.

To be sure, South Korea's compulsory military enlistment has driven a wedge between couples. In 2015, netizens suspected that Girls' Generation member YoonA broke-up with Lee Seung-gi due to his impending military service. Nevertheless, neither Suzy nor Lee Min-ho commented on splitting up or taking their relationship to the next level. Fans might no doubt have to wait a long time before they see this fairytale wedding.
