Won Bin and Lee Na-young's 'small wedding'

Source: OSEN via Hancinema.net

photo598802.jpgWon Bin and Lee Na-young got married. They are a top star couple also known as the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie of Korea. The two of them got married in a quiet village and had a small wedding without the fuss of having a huge top star wedding. Why though?

There are a few things that can be mentioned when it comes to top star weddings. Media and the spotlight, a luxury hotel wedding hall with celebrity guests who look like they're going to an award show and more fanciness and fuss than a regular wedding are some. The wedding alone is confusion enough but it's true that celebrities have more pressure on their shoulders when their wedding becomes the hottest topic not only in the showbiz but publicly as well.

However, there's a new trend called the 'small wedding'. Those who want a more meaningful and simple wedding or even a more unique one, do it this way.

The sudden wedding between Won Bin and Lee Na-young suited them well as they are usually kept under the veil most of the times.

The two of them got married in Gangwon-do with only the closest of family and friends and claimed that it was the kind of wedding they had imagined of for a long time. They looked around for the field they wanted to get married on and even picked out the flowers on their own. They wanted to do everything personally to make their once in a lifetime day special.

Singer Lee Hyori and Lee Sang-soon set an example of a 'small wedding' first. Lee Hyori had always talked about a wedding without a wedding and got married in Jeju Island with only her family and friends in August 2013. This made her status rise and eccentric was her wedding without precedence. However, her wedding pictures showed how free and natural everything looked and she was the envy of women who wanted a unique and meaningful wedding. She became the best example of a 'small wedding'.

The next example of a 'small wedding' was Jo Jung-chi and Jung In. they had been dating for a long time when they registered themselves married at the Mapo District Office and threw a bouquet of flowers at Jung In's best friend. They enjoyed a special honeymoon at Mountain Jiri too.

Kim Na-yeong also had a small wedding. She got married in April but it came as a shock as no one knew she even had a boyfriend. She revealed her wedding on Twitter and announced through her management, "I have always wanted a meaningful wedding since I was young. My future companion and I are taking a step towards the future together and we thought about having a wedding that revolved around us and only us".

The trend of a 'small wedding' is all about meaning and memories to treasure. Celebrities who live their lives being watched by people all the time might want no interference by anyone on the one very special day of their lives. Those who have small weddings don't forget to mention 'meaningful wedding', 'focus only on the two of us' and other things.

Photos From Won Bin and Lee Na Young′s Weekend Wedding Revealed

CJ E&M enewsWorld Nancy Lee

In today′s paparazzi age, it′s hard to pull off a secret wedding, but leave it to the fiercely private Won Bin and Lee Na Young couple to sneak one past us. 

A day after the surprise ceremony took place, the couple′s agency Eden9 released a few photos from the beautifully low key wedding on May 31, along with a statement detailing moments from the big day.


Won Bin and Lee Na Young opted for a small, private wedding attended by close family members on a wheat field in Won Bin′s hometown Gangwon-do on May 30. 

The agency revealed through the statement that the preparations were kept under tight wraps in order to fulfill Won Bin and Lee Na Young′s wish for a quiet wedding. 

Small weddings appear to be a growing trend among stars these days, signaling a movement away from the lavish, sponsored celebrity event. 

According to the statement, the couple kept the wedding as personal as possible, going out to find the field where the wedding was held themselves and personally picking the flowers to be set on the table.

Won Bin, Lee Na-young Tie Knot in Wheat Fields

Source: The Chosun Ilbo


Acting star Won Bin and fellow actress Lee Na-young got married in the open air on Saturday in the green wheat fields of Jeongseon, Gangwon Province, the groom's hometown. 

The two are protective of their private lives and their wedding was kept secret until the very last minute. It was a small wedding with family and relatives only.

Eden9 Entertainment, the agency for both actors, said the bride and the groom walked down a path surrounded by wheat fields and exchanged vows with the blessings of their parents.

Won and Lee met in 2011 when Lee joined Eden9, and romance started to blossom in 2013. For a while the two were among the most coveted advertising models.

"It's a bit disappointing to think that no matter how hard I try to act in different parts the public always remember me as an advertising model," Lee has admitted. "But I also think that it can be a strength as it's like a blank canvas that can be filled with any character so I won't be typecast."

Won repeatedly said that his ideal woman would be beautiful outside and inside and not too chatty.

The wedding ceremony was strictly private. The two reportedly went around the back roads to find the perfect venue and carefully considered every aspect. 

After the ceremony, they made noodles in a large traditional cast-iron pot and shared a bowl with their families.

When news of their relationship broke in 2013, the media tracked down Won's mother in Jeongseon and asked her about Lee. "I heard about it from people in the village," she told them. "I don't watch much TV."

In a statement, the couple said, "We will remember the solemn vow which will take root in the land where we were born and raised, and even in times of hardships, we will live like an unwavering tree." 

But their marital home will be in Bangbae-dong, Seoul, and they do not plan to go on honeymoon anytime soon.

Hallyu couple wed in secret

BY JIN MIN-JI INSIDE Korea JoongAng Daily

Korean wave stars Won Bin, 37, and Lee Na-young, 36, tied the knot Saturday in Jeongseon, Gangwon, according to their agency Eden9 Entertainment.

“The wedding was held in secret in the fields of Won Bin’s hometown, amid the blessing of their families”

The specific date and location of the couple’s honeymoon have not yet been determined, though they plan to go after settling their schedules.

Due to the breaking nature of the news, speculation surfaced that Lee may have become pregnant before the wedding, a rumor that was firmly denied by the agency. 

However, Eden9 added that the couple hopes to have a child as soon as possible. 

The two top stars, both known in Korea for their stunning looks and acting abilities, made waves online when they officially announced they were dating in July 2013. 

Lee switched agencies in 2011 to Won Bin’s Eden9, and the pair began dating the following year.

Since his debut in 1996, Won Bin was featured in various films and TV dramas. His breakout roles included performances in “The Man from Nowhere” (2010), “Taegukgi: The Brotherhood of War” (2004) and “My Brother” (2004). 

Lee debuted as a model in 1998 and soon moved into acting, taking lead roles in films like “Howling” (2012) and TV dramas “The Fugitive: Plan B” (2010).

Won Bin's Quiet Countryside Wedding Strikes Chord

Source: The Chosun Ilbo

The small private wedding of top actors Won Bin and Lee Na-young in the groom's remote hometown of Jeongseon, Gangwon Province has been hailed as an example for others. 

The simplicity of the outdoor ceremony appealed not only to those who think weddings are getting far too ostentatious but also to defenders of traditional values. 

"It seemed even more beautiful to see millionaire celebrities having such a modest ceremony," read one online comment, while another said, "It's good to see a star not forgetting his families and his hometown."


The two actors decided early this year to have only family and close friends present in Won's hometown. Instead of a typical wedding procession, the two walked down a path surrounded by green wheat fields, and exchanged their own vows. 

A friend of the bride officiated the ceremony along with five bridesmaids.

Only about 40 people attended. They shared typical Korean party food such as a bowl of noodles and pancakes prepared by the parents of the bride and groom. 

The agency booked a small inn in Jeongseon a month ago for guests. The field where the ceremony took place belongs to the owner of the inn. 

The owner said, "A man called me and said they want to film my guesthouse and the fields nearby. I didn't know it was for the wedding of Won and Lee until the day of the wedding."

6 Awesome Interview Answers from Won Bin’s Incredibly Nonchalant Parents


6 Awesome Interview Answers from Won Bin’s Incredibly Nonchalant Parents


With the news of Won Bin and Lee Na Young‘s marriage hot in the news, the comments made by Won Bin’s parents about their son are once again catching the attention of the public.

Won Bin’s parents are notorious for their nonchalant attitude towards their son, and media outlet Insight gathered six of their best interview answers from various interviews from the past.

1. “Won Bin must be popular because he takes after his father.”

Won Bin’s father: “He must be like me. How could it be possible for a son to be not like his dad at all? But people are all the same. Even if he’s handsome, how handsome could he really be? I don’t brag about him to the neighbors. There are so many people who are better looking than him.”

2. “You’ve raised your son well.”

Won Bin’s father: “Our neighbors tell us that we’ve raised our son well and that it’s incredible, but there’s nothing great about it. People say that he’s popular, but the way I see it, I don’t think it’s true. I don’t know how he will do in the future, but I guess he will do better if he gets a lot of help from the people around him. So help him out a lot.” (Woman Chosun, 2004)


3. “You’ve heard of your son’s relationship?”

Won Bin’s mother: “We found out because our neighbors told us. We actually don’t watch a lot of TV, so we don’t know who Lee Na Young is. This is my first time seeing her. She’s pretty.”

4. “Won Bin’s at the age to be getting married.”

Won Bin’s mother: “True. I’m sure they’ll figure it out on their own.”

won bin 2

5.  “Have you talked to your son since the news of his relationship broke out?”

Won Bin’s mother: “No. We normally don’t talk about those kinds of things. I didn’t call him about this and Bin didn’t call me either.”

6. “Did you know about your son’s relationship?”

Won Bin’s mother: “I did not know that he was meeting Lee Na Young. Whether he dates her or gets married to her, I believe that my son will make the right decisions.” (tvN eNEWS, 2013)

Won Bin and Lee Na-young, rear blast? Lies about marriage?

The rear blast of Won Bin and Lee Na-young's secret wedding has the show biz in a frenzy. There are some people who are guilty about things they didn't want to reveal but did.

Bae Yong-joon and Park Soo-jin are being unnecessarily speculated about their upcoming wedding. They are getting married this 27th at a hotel but as more news about their marriage comes along, netizens are asking them to 'keep it down' which is realistically impossible.

Whenever someone says they are getting married, Won Bin and Lee Na-young's secret marriage is being brought up. People are saying, 'if Won Bin and Lee Na-young could keep it down, why can't you?'

Actually, news about Won Bin and Lee Na-young's wedding had many rumors and media even reported it. However, the two claimed these rumors false and denied rumors about their marriage.

Big news like a stars' wedding can't be kept quiet. Not only because of their careers but because of advertisement agents who require agreement regarding their contracts but there is a way for netizens to find out what they want to know about a celebrity if they wanted to. Therefore, news about top stars and their marriage spreads like fire. However, the managements can't deny what's true.

Speculations that already-famous stars want to promote themselves even further through news about marriage, is far from the truth. They don't need more publicity and more attention just means inconvenience. They are just being misunderstood.

Even though celebrities don't want to announce it, the rumors and media reports drive them to differentiate the truth from the lies and tell their fans what's true. Their concern is whether or not to lie about the rumors or to later claim that they had no choice.

Meanwhile, Bae Yong-joon and Park Soo-jin plan on having their wedding in private. They will only have the closest friends and family as guests and their management denies that Park Soo-jin is pregnant.

Actress Lee Na-young pregnant with first child




Actress Lee Na-young is pregnant with her first child, her talent agency announced Monday.

The 36-year-old star surprised fans by marrying popular actor Won Bin without prior notice in late May. The couple's humble family wedding that took place on a field in Won's rural hometown of Jeongseon, Gangwon Province, became the talk of the town for a while as celebrities usually prefer a luxurious wedding that can draw media attention.

"Lee and Won, who are in the sweet honeymoon phase just like any other ordinary couple that respects one another, are welcoming a new family member," Eden9 Entertainment Co. said in a release.

The couple are "thankful" for the pregnancy, it added.

Won gained fame for the Korean TV series "Autumn in My Heart," which spearheaded the Asianwide popularity of Korean pop culture, a phenomenon known as "hallyu."

The 39-year-old actor has since starred in many local films including "Taegukgi" and "Mother," directed by Bong Joon-ho.

"Mother" had competed in the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.

Lee made her debut as a TV commercial model and later earned a major place in the entertainment industry, appearing in TV series such as "Ruler of Your Own World" and "Ireland" and such films as "Someone Special" and "Maundy Thursday."

The two have not appeared on TV or the silver screen since the early 2010s, except for in some TV commercials. (Yonhap)
