Jun Ji Hyun Says She Fell for Her Husband’s Boldness
Jun Ji Hyun’s voice shook with excitement. The boldness of this top star seemed to crumble in the face of her once in a lifetime moment.
Jun Ji Hyun held a press conference before her wedding ceremony on April 13 in Seoul’s Shilla Hotel to talk about how she felt and how she was brought to this wedding. She appeared in a dress from the famed British designer brand Jenny Packham.
She seemed taken aback at the big crowd of reporters waiting for her, but she soon found her footing and smiled at the camera.
She started off by saying, “I thank you for coming such a long way,” then added, “I’m so nervous and tense today.” Her nervousness indeed showed, as her voice seemed to shake with her emotions.
Jun Ji Hyun said about her first encounter with her husband, “We grew up in the same neighborhood since we were little, so we knew each other. We started a serious relationship after we officially met through an acquaintance two years ago.”
The groom, Choi Joon Hyuk, is the only grandson of the hanbok designer Lee Young Hee and is the son of fashion designer Lee Jung Woo. He works at an American banking company.
When asked what charms she saw in him, she answered, “His boldness,” and added, “One evening, he said we were going somewhere and told me to come with my passport. I followed him; we ended up at the airport, and we immediately left for Japan. In Japan, he asked whether I would marry him along with a ring.”
“We have talked about it, but we have to set up more plans,” she said on how many children the couple plans to have.
To a question asking about her honeymoon, she said, “We can’t go because of the shoot for my film Berlin. My husband is busy around this time also, so we’re planning it for fall.”
She then finished, “I’m so nervous and tense. I don’t even know what to say. I just hope I can hold and finish the wedding ceremony well. There are many people who have continued to keep their eyes on me. I want to thank them. I’ll work hard to live happily after being married.”
