Song Il Guk’s traditional wedding
Song Il Guk is officially married to an official 🙂 (정승연 Jeong Seung Yeon). Last Saturday, my husband and I went to the province to visit my parents-in-law. (Can’t access the computer when we’re there!) We were on the road at around 2 PM and there was a heavy traffic on the way to Cheongheo Bridge, near where Sheraton Walker Hill is located. I told my husband that it might be because of Song Il Guk’s wedding that afternoon, so I suggested we go there too 🙂
Song Il Guk had a very traditional wedding, from the pre-wedding pictures down to the food served to distinguished guests. About 2,000 VIPs attended their wedding. They were welcomed as early as 4 PM while the actual wedding started at 6 PM. Could they be more excited? This made me reflect because we are almost always late when we attend a wedding!
I’ve been looking at pictures available on the net but I couldn’t find a really nice shot of “Jumong’s” wife. I could understand that she’s a judge and she needs to protected from jealous fans. Song Il Guk came from a distinguished family. His ancestors had significant places in Korean history. His mother, aside from being a noted actress, is also a politician.
I like that they had a traditional Korean wedding. No modern wedding dresses for them. The bride and groom looked very beautiful in their hanboks. You’ll see pictures of Song Il Guk carrying a wooden goose, to be presented to his mother-in-law as a sign of his fidelity to his new bride. He also marched to the teresan behind a silk screen. I can imagine that they had such a lovely wedding. The guests were served bibimbap along with traditional rice cake and other Korean side dishes. The music, of course, traditional Korean. Not all the guests arrived in hanbok. Only the bride and groom’s parents family dress in traditional Korean clothes these days.
Here are some photos I found on various Korean news portal sites. The wedding was arranged by I-Wedding, the company most preferred by rich celebrities.
