Actress Lee Bo-young and actor Ji Sung tied the knot on Friday at a Seoul hotel with more than 200 guests in attendance.
The pair has been dating for six years after starring opposite each other in the 2004 TV drama “Save the Last Dance for Me.” They admitted to dating in 2007 but have been low key about their relationship until very recently when Lee, who successfully finished her summer hit show “I Can Hear Your Voice” in July, announced her engagement.
“What we wrote on our wedding invitation, ‘Like the Little Prince had his own star, we are nurturing our own star. We invite you to the star of Bo-young and Ji Sung,’ reflects what we have thought since we first started dating. While we were trying to think of words for our invitation, I thought a lot about what kind of a man I want to be for Bo-young,” Ji said Friday, ahead of the wedding.
“Some might find this too romantic, but this is our wedding. To me, it was very serious, even solemn,” he added.
Lee, who debuted in 2002, is currently one of the most sought-after actresses on the small screen, taking leading roles on smash-hit dramas such as “Man from the Equator,” “My Daughter Seo-young” and “I Can Hear Your Voice.”
The 36-year-old actor Ji has had a successful and lengthy career, appearing in 1999 hit “KAIST” to 2011 romantic comedy drama “Save the Boss.”
The two have postponed their honeymoon until Ji wraps up filming TV drama “Secret.” Lee is reportedly planning to take an overseas charity trip next month.
