Bae Yong Jun marries actress Park Soo Jin
Bae Yong Jun (42) and Park Soo Jin (29) began dating in February this year and announced their engagement in May. They held a private wedding today, July 27, at the Sheraton Grande Wakerhill hotel in Seoul, which just so happened to be the background for his popular 2001 series Hotelier. After staying at the hotel tonight, the pair will leave for a honeymoon on the southern coast of South Korea.
Before the wedding, Bae Yong Jun shared the above photo on Instagram with the following caption: “Everyone’s blessings will always be my greatest source of strength. I am sorry I cannot be with everyone but I will remember your love. I will live well and share my happiness often with everyone. Thank you! You must also stay happy!”
Some of the stars reportedly in attendance at the ceremony included quite a few celebrities from KeyEast Entertaiment (which Bae Yong Jun founded and which Park Soo Jin joined in 2014), like Kim Soo Hyun, Im Soo Jung, Park Seo Joon, and Lee Hyun Woo. JYP Entertainment CEO J.Y. Park was one of the performers at the nuptials.
