Her love story started after becoming fascinated with the Korean culture. Apparently, Putri was fond of watching the Korean variety show Running Man that she decided to learn about the Korean language. But instead of studying the language in her home country, Putri traveled to South Korea and enrolled at a language course in Seoul National University in 2015.

Jun, a Korean graphic designer, came into her life the following year.

Like any typical love story, Putri and Jun developed feelings for each other over time. The two soon realized that they were actually falling in love with each other.

Although Putri was sure of her feelings for Jun, she had reservations.

Aside from the fact that they come from entirely different cultures, their religious backgrounds were widely different. Putri knew their relationship will be frowned upon by the public and on social media.

Despite all these issues, Putri and Jun decided to fight for their love.

When Jun was finally ready to take their relationship to the next level, he decided to call Putri’s father to inform him of his intentions to which the latter agreed. The next thing they know, they were already traveling to Jakarta to meet Putri’s parents and family. Jun made the official proposal in front of Putri’s loved ones.
