On 26th January 2013 (Saturday), the first of the many K-Pop idols finally got married. We’ve already seen her pre-wedding shots – it got us all excited about the actual wedding day!
The ceremony took place at the Seoul Lotte Hotel in the presence of family and friends. But ahead of the actual event, the beautiful “Wonder Girls” princess bride, Sunye held a press conference, where she officially addressed her decision to get married.
According to my husband-to-be, he was trying to prepare a ring from his grandma, but it turned out his parents had secretly already prepared a ring. I learned about the significance of the ring of my in-laws, and how they wanted to get the same ring for the future as well, and I almost cried. I told myself, I’d want to become a mother-in-law like that someday as well.
Marriage to me is a turning point in life and a new start. Since I was little, I liked being on the stage and being a singer so I have kept running towards achieving that until now. However, as time passed, I wondered about what direction my life would take next. And naturally, marriage came about and I think it is a new start as a turning point. I’m so thankful that my members sincerely congratulated me and was truly happy for me. As they cheered me on, I felt strengthened while preparing for my marriage. Many people have expressed their sadness and regret as well, but I will continue to be with you all so please don’t be sad.
She also confirmed, “There is no new life in my stomach at the moment”, trumping all rumours about her wedding being a shotgun one. Sunye added that she would like to have one son and one daughter in the future.
Hours later, her union of love with James Park was witnessed by celebrities such as Wonder Girls, J.Y. Park, 2AM, Park Kyun Lim, Bada, JJ Project, Girls’ Generation, and more. It was said that J.Y. Park also took the opportunity to sing the newly wedded couple a congratulatory song at the wedding. Aww. We can’t think of a better wedding that’s befitting the K-Pop idol.
Congratulations, James Park and Sunye! Here’s to many, many years of happily ever after.
