The superstar couple’s wedding Mass lasted about 90 minutes. Rain wore a black suit while the bride wore a white dress that hit above knee.
Only family members and a few close friends, including Park Jin-young, the head of JYP Entertainment and Rain‘s former boss, attended the Mass. In celebration of the new couple, Park sang “Only You,” the song he had written in dedication to his own wife.
Other guests included Rain’s godfather Ahn Sung-ki, Psy, Park Joon-hyung of K-pop group g.o.d. and Kim‘s university classmate Lee Honey.
Preparation for the high-profile wedding was carried out secretly, with the guests notified of the place and time only on the day of the wedding. The venue was guarded by private security guards hours before the ceremony, blocking a group of reporters from getting a glimpse of the superstar couple.
Rain and Kim started dating in the fall of 2012, with news hitting the public on Jan. 1, 2013. The couple has reportedly been preparing to exchange nuptials since their respective families met in November.
Rain’s latest single “Best Present” had fueled rumors of his imminent marriage to Kim, given the singer himself had written the lyrics depicting a young man confessing his love.
The couple will release their wedding photos along with a public announcement after the wedding, Rain‘s agency said Thursday. It added that the newlyweds would not leave for a honeymoon immediately.
They will establish their home at Rain’s current residence.
