Presenting Mr. and Mrs. Bae! Actor Bae Yong Joon and actress Park Soo Jin became man and wife in a beautiful wedding ceremony today, July 27.
At the Sheraton Grande Walkerhill Aston House in Seoul the 42-year-old Winter Sonata screen star and the Tasty Road presenter — 13 years his junior — exchanged vows in a tightly guarded private ceremony among close friends and family.
Congratulatory performances and songs were delivered by the likes of Park Jin Young, plus singers The One and Shin Yong Jae from ballad duo 4Men. Sources say that “all three singers invited to sing perform at the wedding are closely connected to the couple.”
The couple will spend their first night at the hotel, before leaving to their honeymoon along the southern coast of Korea on Tuesday morning.
Access to the ceremony was so heavily restricted that even the managers and associates accompanying the A-list stars invited to the wedding were not allowed into the premises. And Bae’s agency KeyEast chose not to hold the customary celebrity wedding press conference nor a public photo session in relation to the matrimonial event.
Even under such restricted conditions, over 100 Japanese fans of Bae are reported to have flown to Korea, making their way to the hotel at the break of dawn to congratulate the Hallyu star.

One fan wistfully told local reporters, “Bae Yong Joon is a well-mannered person so he might open his car window and give us a wave,” as she waited longingly in the rain holding an umbrella.
