Apparently, catching the bouquet at a wedding really does work. Last week Korea’s Power Couple Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung caught the bouquet at fellow actor Shin Hyeon Joon’s wedding.
Tradition says that those who catch the bouquet will marry within six months. But when asked if they had marriage plans, the couple said they did not. They declined to set a date because they both had busy schedules.
The much-in-demand actor had just finished starring in the films “Red 2” and “G.I. Joe: Retaliation.” The actress was finishing up her drama, “All About My Romance.”
But then this week, they announced they would indeed wed and the wedding would take place on August 10 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Seoul.
Lee Byung Hun, 42, and Lee Jung Min, 31, met in 2006 on a modeling job. They dated briefly but broke up because her career was just beginning and he was often away filming.
“I thought that I was standing in her way, since she was just starting” said Lee Byung Hun. “I was busy with many projects at the time and had to live abroad. I knew we couldn’t meet often.”
But they found each other again a few years later and last year acknowledged that they were dating. The star of the drama “Iris” and the hit series “All In” has been candid about his feelings for her, describing her as the “most precious person” in his life.
On an episode of “Healing Camp,” Lee Byung Hun explained how he felt about his fiancée, who began her career in “Boys Over Flowers,” and appeared in “Midas,” and “Big.”
“She is beautiful, but looks don’t last too long,” said Lee Byung Hun. “Having something in common is very important in a relationship. We have a lot in common, we actually never stop talking; we have so many things to share. Even though we have a big age gap, she is very mature and understands the emotions experienced by someone my age.”
He also said that she was there for him when he was going through hard times. And she has a great sense of humor. So far, the actress has not spoken publicly about her feelings for him or their relationship.
Her agency, which only a few days before denied any rumors of marriage, released a statement that said, “The two have finally decided to tie the knot. We hope that you continue to bless the couple and their new start.”
The ceremony is sure to be attended by plenty of celebrities. Kdrama fans will be eager to see who catches their wedding bouquet.
