Song Hae said, "I got to know Jang Yoon Jung through National Song Contest. She became successful thanks to her hard work, and I hope she overcomes the difficulties that will come her way after her marriage and live a good life."
Park Hyun Bin said, "It′s like my blood sister is getting married; it feels different from the other weddings I′ve attended. I have to sing today, and like the lyrics from my song Shabang Shabang, ′It′s something to die for.′"
Wink, the twin trot duo, commented, "We met with Do Kyung Wan and Jang Yoon Jung sunbae (senior) before their wedding, and they told us they want twins. We hope they have twins with our help."
"I just met Jang Yoon Jung at the bride′s room," Kim Ji Sun said. She then added, "She said she wanted to have many children like me," and danced her trademark ′have many children′ dance.
Park Gyeong Rim said, "I saw photos from their press conference and they resembled each other. It felt they were destined to meet. I′ve known Jang Yoon Jung for a long time, and she has a very firm personality and she′s bright. I hope she continues to live happily as herself."
Just before their wedding ceremony, Jang Yoon Jung and Do Kyung Wan spoke at a press conference.
Do Kyung Wan first said, "We′re getting married today. I work at a broadcasting channel, and this is the first time I′ve stood before so many media outlets. This is my first marriage, and my bride is so calm and I′m shaking. I′ll work hard to support my wife so that I can live happily with the most popular singer in Korea."
Jang Yoon Jung thanked her guests, saying, "I thought it would take a long time to get married after our press conference, but I′m thankful that so many people have come to congratulate us. I want to thank them for being here."
"I had a good sleep, and I′m feeling good," Jang Yoon Jung added. "Instead of getting a facial massage, we helped each other put face packs on during the evening. You′re probably wondering about our plans for children, and we′ll work hard. We′ll try to do good for the country as much as our bodies will allow."
She then sang a bit from her hit song First Marriage, singing, "You′re here~ You′re here~ I′ve waited so long, my love."
The couple has already registered its marriage, and it will live together where Jang Yoon Jung currently lives.
