Jun Ji-hyun ties knot with designer's grandson

2012/04/13 | Permalink | Source

Actress Jun Ji-hyun, 30, tied the knot Friday at the Shilla Hotel, Seoul.

Also known as Gianna Jeon, the actress married Choi Jun-hyuk, grandson of "hanbok" (traditional Korean costume) designer Lee Young-hee.

She said getting married has not come home to her yet at a press conference held three hours prior to the wedding.

Jeon and Choi were childhood friends and love blossomed between the two when a friend re-introduced them two years ago.

"I am an actress and I express myself through movies and dramas. I think I have to reflect on myself first and improve my acting", Jeon said.

She added the couple has no plans for children yet.

Justice Minister Kwon Jae-jin, who went to high school with Choi's father, officiated at their wedding; and Jeon's favorite singer Lee Juck sang a nuptial song for them.

She wore a Reem Acra wedding gown for the first part of the ceremony and a hanbok designed by her grandmother-in-law for the wedding reception. At the press conference before the wedding, she chose a Jenny Packham dress.

Jeon originally planned to wed in June, but changed the date due to the filming schedule for her new movie "In Berlin". She will leave for Germany later this month to shoot with Ha Jung-woo, Han Suk-kyu and Ryoo Seung-bum.

Jeon made her debut as a model in 1997 and was a big hit in the 2001 movie "My Sassy Girl". She also appeared in Hollywood films in "Blood: The Last Vampire" (2009) and "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" (2011).
