From start to finish, the engagement and wedding of Bae Yong Joon and Park Soo Jin has been just so weird to behold. The biggest surprise has to be how little the K-ent public seems to be interested in this event, when ten years ago it would be headline news for weeks on end and crazy intense Yonsama fangirls might even have trouble coping. Now the media seems to write about them more than the public cares, but even then it’s worth putting a cap on the end of an era that was Bae Yong Joon’s enduring popularity solely on the back of one drama that is Winter Sonata.
He’s actually transitioned in the last decade to become the very rich and successful president of agency KeyEast so he’s likely not caring that his own acting fandom has dwindled. Marrying his own agency starlet Park Soo Jin raises some eyebrows, along with the lightning speed of their relationship, but if they are happy then fine by me. Bae Yong Joon posted the picture above to his SNS account, showing the couple preparing to head to the wedding ceremony which took place on Monday. Congrats to the Mr. and Mrs., and major props to Yonsama’s devoted obasan fans from Japan who came all the way to personally celebrate his nuptials.
