Good news alert! Don’t you guys love hearing more good news? Remember this past Winter when it was just a depressing unending stream of bad behavior coming out of Korea – the alleged raping, the prescription propofol abuse, the military service scandals. Yeah, I remember and it was not a happy time to follow K-ent. This Summer hasn’t been all fun and games either, but there has been an uptick in marital news that once again leads me to believe that all the oppas are dropping like flies from bachelorhood. Kim Jae Won tied the knot earlier, and Lee Byung Hun and Bae Soo Bin are slated to get married in the next month or so. Today comes the bombshell happy news that long time celebrity couple Ji Sung and Lee Bo Young are getting married at the end of September! September 27th at the W Walker Hill Hotel, to be exact. Funnily enough, Ji Sung’s famous ex-girlfriend actress Park Sol Mi got hitched at the Sheraton Grand Walker Hill this past April to her actor hubby Han Jae Seok. In fact, 2013 will have seen 3 out of the 4 main leads of the drama All In tie the knot, leaving only Song Hye Kyo to make it a home run.
That was a ridiculously datey cast, with main leads Lee Byung Hun and Song Hye Kyo hooking up as well as second leads Ji Sung and Park Sol Mi. I think the six-degrees of separation in the Korean entertainment world needs to be halved down to three-degrees. Ji Sung and Lee Bo Young have been dating since they filmed the drama Save the Last Dance for Me, where they didn’t play the OTP but instead she was the crazy second female lead with the obsessive and suicidal love for his male lead. Thankfully the crazy drama antics didn’t transfer to real life and the couple has been one of the most low key relationships out there. They are rarely photographed in public but last year was snapped happily enjoying a Psy concert. Both announced their impending nuptials at the same time and the same way, posting handwritten letters on their respective fan sites. Awwww, I can see them getting up in the morning and rolling out of bed together, heading over to their laptops and pressing send at the same time. Ji Sung proposed earlier this year and once they set the date, Lee Bo Young wanted to announce the news in June but then accepted I Hear Your Voice and didn’t want her personal news to overshadow the drama so kept this happiness a secret until the drama wrapped. I can totally see her dying to share it with everyone and wanting the drama to end so she can plan her own wedding. Much love and happiness to this lovely couple, may it last for a lifetime.
