Kim Jung-eun’s Wedding
In 2016, Kim Jung Eun married her fiancee after almost three years together. At first, it was announced that the wedding would be held in United States in March 2016, but it turns out the newlyweds said their vows this past weekend in the heart of Seoul.
On April 29, the couple had a small, private ceremony in a restaurant among their family and closest friends. Although it wasn’t a grand affair, the traditional setting and elegant decor made for a gorgeous venue. However, the beauty of the scenery was no match to that of the lovely bride, which can be seen in the pictures of the wedding below.
Kim Jung-eun intends to continue her acting career and has stated the following to her fans regarding their support: “Today we were married under the April sun with the sky and weather giving us their blessing. Thank you to everyone who extended their congratulations, and I will strive to live as a wise and gracious wife and actress”. It proves that she is dedicated to her acting career.
Prior to her wedding, on the SBS Plus show “Stargram”, she appeared on the segment called “Star Pouch,” in which stars reveal the contents of their pouch and share their beauty tips with the audience.
She talked about how her husband proposed to her in a very sweet way.
She revealed, “We met about three, four years ago. He was so passionate that he asked to get married within a month of us meeting. But at the time, I wasn’t ready, so we didn’t get married. Then time passed and when it came around to getting married, my husband hadn’t proposed.”
She continues, “His father had passed away the previous year and one day, he said that he needed to tell his father that he’s getting married, and so he asked me to go to his father’s grave with him. There, he said, ‘Father, we’re getting married,’ and proposed to me. Since it was a grave, I wasn’t wearing a dress or anything and I was just wearing exercise clothes with no make up on. He told me that he wanted to propose in front of his dad and had even prepared a ring. I cried immediately,” sharing her emotional reaction to a sweet surprise from her husband.
We, along with all of Kim Jung Eun’s fans, wish her and her husband a lifetime of happiness together, and hope to see more amazing work from her in the future.
