Numerous South Korean celebrities attended their wedding, such as Bae Yong-joon, Jang Dong-gun, Lee Byung-hyun, Song Seung-hun, Choi Ji-woo, Ha Ji-won, Won-bin, So Ji-sub, Cha Seung-won, and many more.
Scandals and Controversies
A few months after their wedding, Kwon Sang-woo caused a lot of scandals; he was even boycotted by his fans. This became Sang-woo’s unending crisis period. But luckily for him, he had his wife, who supported him with her whole heart. Kwon Sang-woo wrote a letter as an apology to his fans.
Kwon Sang-woo had a secret affair?
In 2013, Kwon Sang-woo was once again hit by malicious rumors. He was said to have had an affair with TV personality Kang Ye-bin. The floating rumor stated “A sexy female star and a married male star went on a ‘honeymoon’ vacation to Japan together,” and netizens started to bully Kwon Sang-woo and Kang Ye-bin as the subjects of the rumors.
Responding to this terrible rumor, Kwon Sang-woo was overflowing with anger and left a message in his own fan cafe to clarify the situation. He wrote:
“They are once again bothering me when I am living so happily. I was dumbfounded when I read the rumor that I was dating Kang Ye-bin! I know it to be that someone else is! I am extremely annoyed so I’m leaving this message. I can pass this over with a laugh, but what about my innocent family and fans? I am grateful that she once picked me as her ideal type, but I’ve never even seen her. I am Son Tae-young’s husband and a strong father to Luke. Please don’t be jealous of us.”
