Jun Ji Hyun Ties Knot With Banker
Jun Ji Hyun (30), who has captured the hearts of countless men, has finally become the wife of one lucky man.
Jun’s wedding was held at the Shilla Hotel’s Dynasty Hall in Jangchung-dong, Seoul on April 13 at 6 p.m. (local time). She tied the knot with banker Choi Joon Hyuk, who she had been dating for two years.
Choi, who is currently working at an American banking company, is the grandson of hanbok designer Lee Young Hee and the son of fashion designer Lee Jung Woo.
Appearing in front of the media three hours before her wedding ceremony at 3 p.m., Jun was clearly nervous as she shared her thoughts on the wedding. She talked about the first meeting with her husband and the process leading up to their marriage. There were over 200 foreign and domestic reporters that day at the press conference.
The camera flashes were relentless as soon as Jun stepped up to the podium wearing a Jenny Packham wedding dress from the famed British designer.
Jun said, “I’m so nervous and tense today. We grew up in the same neighborhood and have known each other for a long time. We started dating two years ago. My husband’s attractive quality is his boldness. In regards to children, we’ll have to talk about it some more.”
She added, “I’m so nervous and tense. I don’t even know what to say. I just hope the wedding ceremony goes smoothly. I want to thank the many people who have kept an eye on me. I’ll work hard to live happily after being married.”
Jun looked fabulous in a Reem Acra wedding dress during the wedding ceremony. Moreover, the guests, who began showing up after 5 p.m., included Jun’s My Sassy Girl costar Cha Tae Hyun, as well as Jang Hyuk, Han Ye Seul, Kim Yoon Jin, Song Joong Ki, Kim Hye Soo and Kim Su Ro.
Cha conveyed his congratulations and said, “Her wedding has received a lot of attention and I hope she lives happily ever after and continues her acting career.”
Department of Justice minister Kwon Jae Jin, an alumnus of Jun’s future father-in-law, officiated the wedding, which also included a congratulatory performance by Lee Juk. All in all, there were over 600 guests present to help celebrate the joyous occasion.
Jun, who was the envy of countless women in the past, will start a new chapter in her life as the wife of new groom Choi Joon Hyuk. It was further revealed that the new couple’s honeymoon will be pushed back to the fall due to the production of Jun’s upcoming movie Berlin.
