Girls' Generation Member Yuri's Boyfriend Oh Seung Hwan Says 'No' To Marriage Right Now

From "Dating Generation" to "Married Generation?" Not quite.

Oh Seung Hwan, the Hanshin Tigers player dating Girls' Generation's Yuri, revealed in a recent interview that he's not thinking of marriage. The celebrity couple went public with their relationship earlier this year.

In a recent interview with Ilgan Sports, Oh responded that he is not currently thinking of getting married.

"You're now 34, do you want to go live abroad or get married?" asked the Korean media outlet.

"No," responded Oh. "Right now, I do not [want to live abroad or get married]."

Oh is a relief pitcher currently signed with the Japanese baseball team Harshen Tigers. He has the nickname "Dol-bucheo," or "Stone Buddha," because of his emotionless expressions.

Oh and Girls' Generation's Yuri have been dating a little less than a year. The two began dating last November, and confirmed their relationship in April after local media outlets revealed their relationship.

With no marriage plans in the immediate future, fans of both Girls' Generation and Oh can rest comfortably for now.

Yuri is one of two Girls' Generation members currently in a relationship, along with Sooyoung. Sooyoung and actor Jung Kyung Ho confirmed their relationship in 2014.

Three other members of Girls' Generation recently made headlines for ending relationships with high-profile Korean celebrities. Previously, the girl group garnered the nickname "Dating Generation" following the news that more than half of their members were in a relationship.

If any member of Girls' Generation were to get married, she would join several other high profile K-pop idols who recently got married.

Former Wonder Girls leader Sunye is pregnant with her second child after getting married in 2013, and Super Junior's Sungmin got married in 2014 prior to enlisting in the Korean military.

Even though marriage isn't in the immediate future for Yuri and Oh Seung Hwan, we hope that they find happiness.
