June is the start of the wedding season for normal folks and celebrities appear to be no different in electing to get married when the weather is warm and the days are long. Recently singer Baek Ji Young tied the knot with her younger man actor Jung Seok Won in a lovely ceremony in Seoul, with the newly married couple also expecting a baby. That was followed by actor Kim Jae Won announcing his impending nuptials at the end of June to his non-entertainment industry girlfriend, and they are also expecting a baby. I have no clue whether Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung have jumped the gun, but they just announced their upcoming wedding to make this recent spate of wedding activity in the Korean entertainment industry a three-fer. Good things do come in threes, even high-profile celebrity weddings. Lee Byung Hun’s agency BH Entertainment released an official announcement yesterday confirming the wedding set for August 10th at the Grand Hyatt Seoul. That is going to be the hottest ticket in town and will be prime star viewing opportunity, probably along the lines of when Kwon Sang Woo married Son Tae Young or when Jang Dong Gun married Go So Young. Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung’s relationship went public last Summer, but their dating history goes back further than that. The met in 2006 throught mutual friends and starting dating then. But their busy schedules led to them amicably breaking up. Lee Byung Hun admitted on a variety show that a few years later he started thinking about her a lot and realized he wanted to get back together. So shortly thereafter they rekindled their romance and it’s been serious and steady ever since. This isn’t Lee Byung Hun’s first high profile relationship, he famously dated Song Hye Kyo after they did All In together, and age difference-wise the gap is about the same as he’s 12 years older than Lee Min Jung. Congrats to the happy couple and hopefully their careers will continue to thrive along with their married happiness.
Lee Min Jung has been looking very happy in love these days. Above is a picture of her snapped at least week’s wrap party for All About My Love. I’ve teased that she’s worn a wedding dress in all her recent dramas and lo and behold, she’s actually wearing one for real in two months. The wedding rumors between Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung have been heating up for some weeks now after they attended her friend’s wedding together and she caught the bouquet, which is usually arranged in advance to be caught by someone about to get married soon.
