Actors Lee Bo Young and Ji Sung became husband and wife today, September 27. The couple married at the Sheraton Grande Walkerhill Hotel in Seoul’s picturesque Gwangjang district today.
The pair — who have dated for six years — made it official at 6 p.m local time, just moments after meeting with members of the press before the big ceremony.
“I’d be lying if I said I was not nervous,” Ji Sung, 36, told reporters. “But this is the happiest day of my life. I am proud to be marrying Lee Bo Young.”
Lee, 34, radiated in a modest white gown with lace sleeves, while groom Ji was dapper in a chic black tux. Her shimmering silver belt and the soft flower on his lapel were sweet romantic accents to their wedding attire.
Over 200 people attended the occasion, which took place at the hotel’s luxe Aston House property, an exclusive location on the edge of Mount Acha.
After the couple’s western nuptials, they changed into beautiful hanboks for a traditional Korean “Pae Baek” ceremony. (The “Pae Baek” is a ceremonial practice where the groom’s family accepts the new bride into their home as part of the family).
Actor Hong Suk Chun tweeted a photo of Lee Bo Young and Ji Sung in their formal dress. He wrote: “My pretty dongsaengs [juniors] after changing into their hanboks.”
For the evening reception, actress Ku Hye Sun, Secret Garden‘s Yoon Sang Hyun, and soul singer Kim Bum Soo sang celebratory songs during the evening reception.

Earlier this month, Ji Sung spoke about the relationship — which started on set of Save The Last Dance For Me in 2004 — during a press conference for new drama Secret. “We believed in each other,” he said. “We understood that we would sometimes be too busy with our personal schedules to pay attention to each other and we were sorry about that.”
The couple have postponed their honeymoon as Lee is set to leave for Congo on October 10 for UNICEF volunteer work, while Ji Sung will continue filming for KBS 2TV’s Secret until the end of the year.
