Gong Hyo-jin Caught the Flower Bouquet at Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin’s Wedding
The dating news resurfaced recently because there was an incident that happened unintentionally. The incident occurred at the wedding of Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin (The BinJin Wedding) on March 31, 2022.
As one of Son Ye-jin’s close friends, Gong Hyo-jin was invited to the wedding. At the lavish ceremony, Ye-jin followed the long-standing tradition of Korean weddings, namely the flower bouquet toss tradition.
