Yoo Ji Tae and Kim Hyo Jin Say They’ll Live Happily
Yoo Ji Tae and Kim Hyo Jin showed they were happy and ready for their new married life.
Just before their marriage ceremony on December 2, Yoo Ji Tae and Kim Hyo Jin held a press conference. As the two are famous as one of the official star couples, more than 100 members of the press came in to cover the marriage.
Yoo showed much consideration for his bride-to-be, Kim Hyo Jin. He held her hand and didn’t let go even for a moment, and the two kissed each other’s cheeks to show they were indeed deeply in love. They even kissed slightly on their lips and smiled shy yet happy smiles.
Yoo said, “Thank you for coming to our wedding. We’ll try to live as happily as we can. Keep your eyes on us.”
Kim also said shortly, “I’m so thankful to see the many reporters here for our wedding, and I think today’s a very happy day. I’ll live happily.”
Kim shined as the beautiful bride, in a pearl tiara and a luxurious dress, and Yoo also became a sophisticated groom in his black tuxedo.
Yoo and Kim were wed at the Seoul Shilla Hotel Dynasty Hall. It was conducted by President Park Jong Sam of World Vision, for which the two were appointed as honorary ambassadors, and the first part was hosted by actor Ji Jin Hee, while the second was hosted by comedian Kim Jun Ho. Pianist Park Jong Hun played to congratulate the couple, while Lee Gi Chan, Jin Joo, Yoon Jung Hee and Bada sang.
The two first met in 2003 as models for a clothing brand, and became friends after continuously meeting in photo shoots. They started their relationship from early 2007, and announced they were together to become an official star couple in May of the same year.
