This is certainly the season of weddings. Over the weekend, K-pop fans were thrilled to witness Taeyang and Min Hyo Rin‘s big day on social media.
The 29-year-old BIGBANG singer and his 32-year-old beau tied the knot at a church in the Gyeonggi Province of Seoul. The newlyweds also held a wedding reception at Paradise City Hotel later in the day. The gorgeous actress wore a strapless, full-skirted wedding gown with floral appliqué while the handsome entertainer was clad in a tuxedo and bow tie.
YG Entertainment release a statement with congratulatory message that reads:
“We’d like to thank everyone congratulating Taeyang and Min Hyo Rin on their marriage. The wedding ceremony that took place today on 3rd February went very well thanks to the love and attention they received. The private ceremony was held at a church for family, friends, and colleagues at 3pm and lasted about an hour. It was officiated by actor Ki Tae Young, and Zion T.
“The wedding after-party held at Paradise City was hosted by fellow BIGBANG member Daesung, and the congratulatory songs by CL and Seungri. We thank you once again for your cooperation in limited press coverage. We hope you will continue to watch over them warmly so they can repay you for all your love by living a happy life. Please give them lots of support on their new beginning. Thank you.”
Here are 6 interesting things that took place during the high-profile twosome’s wedding event:
1. Their fairytale wedding reminded us of Edward and Bella’s forest wedding from the “Twilight” saga, “Breaking Dawn”.

There’s a reason why Taeyang and Min Hyo Rin’s ethereal wedding looked familiar. That’s because we’ve seen a similar version of it on the big screen a few years ago. Remember Edward (played by Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kirsten Stewart)’s epic wedding in “Breaking Dawn”? It was designed by Youngsong Martin, the same person responsible for decorating Taeyang and Min Hyo Rin’s wedding venue.
2. The top stars who attended the wedding

Many popular artists from the YG family attended the intimate ceremony. Those in attendance include Ra Mi Ran, Se7en, Cha Tae Hyun, Mino and Seunghoon from Winner, Psy, the girls from Blackpink, CL, Sandara Park, Tablo, Sean, and more.
3. The couple’s first dance
After the formal wedding, both the bride and groom changed into more fun outfits. Taeyang switch his black coat to a red velvet blazer while Min Hyo Rin wore a lace-frilled flowy white gown with her hair let down.
As the sexy “Versace on the Floor” by Bruno Mars played, the hunky heartthrob passionately lip-synced to the song. The crowd cheered even louder as the lovebirds dance together.
4. Taeyang serenaded his wife with “Eyes, Nose, Lips”
It’s no secret that Min Hyo Rin often plays the role of Taeyang’s muse. In his solo record, “White Night”, the single “Eyes, Nose, Lips” was inspired by his leading lady. “It’s impossible for my music to not be influenced by my girlfriend. To put it boldly, because she’s the person that I love the most, I think of her as my muse who gives me inspiration,” the crooner was previously quoted as saying.
5. Taeyang had a epic dance-off battle with Jo Se Ho
There were plenty of light hearted moments during the wedding’s after party. One of them includes a fierce dance battle between the groom and comedian Jo Se Ho. It’s no surprise that Taeyang has some serious dancing chops thanks to his years of experience in the music industry. But we got to give some kudos to Jo Se Ho for holding his own.
6. The BIGBANG mothers reunite
Aw… How cute is this? Posing in her white and purple hanbok, Taeyang’s mum was surrounded by the mothers of G-Dragon, TOP, Seungri, and Daesung.
