When I started blogging years ago, the three areas of my interest (K-ent, TW/C-ent, and J-ent) were remarkably distinct entities and never did the twain shall meet. Okay may not never ever, but it was still fairly rare. These days the cross-over of K-stars making C-dramas and movies, TW-starlets marrying K-actors on Korean fake dating shows, combo magazine covers featuring K-and-J actors together, the list goes on and on and this year has seeped into the real world with two high profile cross-border relationships. C-actress Tang Wei and K-director Kim Tae Young are engaged (and may even have officially registered the marriage already) and the reverse is also true with K-actress Chae Rim marrying C-actor Gao Zi Qi. Language and cultural barriers be damned, these two couples are going to try to make it work. This weekend they got another couple to potentially double date with as C-actress Qi Wei got a surprising wedding proposal from her K-actor boyfriend Lee Seung Hyun, followed by a marriage ceremony right on the spot. Talk about moving fast.
I’m actually teasing about the fast bit since they’ve been dating for over a year now after Lee Seung Hyun and Ady An broke up, and recently there have been lots of C-ent chatter about Lee Seung Hyun proposing to Qi Wei so he didn’t spring a fast on on her. She was expecting it but was completely and happily surprised by the how and where. She was in Saipan for a CF shoot when Lee Seung Hyun showed up for a beachside one-the-knee proposal which she happily accepted. Then came the tears part because suddenly her closest girlfriends emerged followed by her mom, all of whom Lee Seung Hyun secretly flew to Saipan for this occasion. He also flew his parents and sister in from the US. Qi Wei has a very boyish personality and doesn’t like pomp and circumstance and she mentioned before wanting to elope for a no frills wedding, so Lee Seung Hyun made it happen but had her closest friends and family present for the occasion. Qi Wei was all tears during the ceremony as she said I do. Congrats to the couple and check out all the cute pics below!
