Jang Dong-gun marries Go So-young
by | May 2, 2010 | 106 Comments

On May 2, Jang Dong-gun married fellow actress Go So-young, and given Jang’s status as one of Korea’s most popular (and most loved) actors, the wedding was pretty much the equivalent of a fancy awards ceremony red carpet. There were approximately 500 (!) guests in attendance.

The wedding took place at Seoul’s Silla Hotel, which was preceded by a press conference (the ceremony itself was not open to the public or press).

Presiding as host for the event was longtime friend Park Joong-hoon (Haeundae). Veteran balladeer Shin Seung-hoon sang, while the bouquet was caught by good friend Lee Hye-young (Queen of Housewives).

The couple (he’s 38, she’s a few months younger at 37) will honeymoon in Bali.

And now for the procession of stars…

Jung Woo-sung (The Good, The Bad, The Weird):

Lee Jung-jae (The Housemaid) is looking sharp. Mmm! I do like the skinny-tie trend (though I prefer the single-breasted look on him, or really anybody):

Gong Hyung-jin (Chuno) has been a close friend of Jang’s for many years, as has wedding MC Park Joong-hoon (Haeundae):

It’s no secret that Song Seung-heon (East of Eden) and So Ji-sub (Road No. 1) are best buddies. Do you think they called each other beforehand to talk about outfit choices? (I prefer So Ji-sub’s casual look as a whole, but it IS a wedding, so points to Song Seung-heon?)

Shin Hyun-joon (Cain and Abel):

Kwon Sang-woo, Sohn Tae-young, and son. I usually roll my eyes when people say infants look like their parents (they look like blobs! clearly I am a baby person), but this kiddo looks JUST like Dad. He’s even got that pout going on.

How is it that Lee Byung-heon always looks exactly the same, no matter the event? He will be sixty and rocking the choco abs and still running around doing action movies looking just like this.

Rain: Wearing a T-shirt to a wedding seems a little casual, but I think it works with the pinstripes. (Is anyone else just waiting for him to get a new hairstyle, though?)

Kim Min-hee (I Like It Hot) always seems to wear clothing that would look crazy and unflattering on anyone else. On her, it just looks eccentric and cool, but not so cool you’d want to run out and wear the crazy yourself.

I love how Ha Ji-won (Haeundae) looks. Crisp, fresh, and chic.

Oh, Hyun Bin (Friend, Our Legend)! The hair! The slouch! What gives?

“National actor” Ahn Sung-ki (The Divine Weapon), Kim Su-ro (God of Study), and Sol Kyung-gu (No Mercy):

I assume the unruly hair and mustache is from Han Jae-seok‘s current drama (Merchant Kim Man-deok) and not just his styling of choice? Also: Oh Man-seok (King and I).

Another of Jang Dong-gun’s close friends, well-known nice guy Kim Min-jong (Return of Iljimae) with singer Shin Seung-hoon. I wonder if stars secretly love daytime weddings because it gives them all an excuse to wear shades.

Everyone’s favorite “chep” Lee Seon-kyun (Pasta):

Not a fan of the boxy blazer or that washed-out peach color on Shin Mina (The Naked Kitchen). And is she wearing… shorts?

Lee Hye-young (Queen of Housewives), who caught Go So-young’s bouquet, is always dressed to impress.

I’ll say it, I hate pop singer Lee Jung-hyun‘s singing voice, but she does look cute here. Is it mean to say she reminds me of a bobblehead doll?

This look is starting to be Cha Seung-won‘s (Athena) signature, isn’t it? I’m not sure if I like it.

This dress looks all sorts of confused, but Go Jun-hee (What’s Up Fox) wears it well.

Joo Jin-mo (Dream) is one example of a guest who makes the no-tie thing work. The vest adds sharpness…

…but I do not think Kim Nam-gil (Bad Guy) gets away with the no-tie look quite so well. Ah, who am I kidding, it’s Kim Nam-gil, he gets away with everything.

Married couples! Here’s ’90s star Sohn Ji-chang with actress wife Oh Yeon-soo (Bad Guy), while Kim Seung-woo (IRIS) arrives with wife Kim Nam-joo (Queen of Housewives):

Um. I don’t know what to say about Lee Yong-woo (Style). Uh. Is that a look for his upcoming drama Birdie Buddy? If it is, I really don’t know how I’m going to take it seriously.

  3. La Plume

    Lee Yong-woo…

    MOUHAHAHAHA. I’m sorry the haircut is just RI-DI-CU-LOUS. I mean I’m not fan of dreads, but it can look good even with a suit… but not tied like this? Hell! It looks like a bike safety helmet :p

  4. the indian girl!

    no gong yoo?? ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ but yaaay for random binnie and chep-nim sighting!!!

  5. anna

    Baby Kwon Sang-woo is like his mini me! So adorable.

    Man, Go So-young sure knows how to snag herself a husband. Not only that, she closed the doors forever having his baby. Very nice, Miss Go So-young. Congratulations!

  6. heejung

    oh wow, dreads!! looks like a dread cap or something, not his actual hair! lol

  7. JiHwan

    Even though his photo is clearly labeled “Hyun Bin” I had to do a double take to realize who it was. Someone needs to get a hair cut and new wardrobe pronto!

  8. sora

    nice no song gye kyo though… awww

  9. jo

    Only JDG can turn his wedding into a mini red-carpet event.
    Ha Jiwon is stunning as usual. She looks gorgeous! Chep! Chep! So handsome <3 Kinda surprised to see Kim namgil there, but yes…sexy as usual.

    I wish Kim So Yeon could show up. I heard that she's JGD's drinking buddy ๐Ÿ™‚ And where's chae rim? we need a "all about eve" reunion!

  10. 10 Keelish

    Oooh that’s one sexy couple x)
    am I the only one crying ? Loool

    anyway– random comment, but yay!! Kim min hee!!! I’m watching one of her dramas rite now, goodbye solo (also starring CMJ!!!)

  11. 11 ~~Li.

    Lee Yong Woo….um…no words. I’m that shocked and disturbed.

    But yay! for Kwon Sang Woo and his kid. They’re too cute.

  12. 12 Piper

    What a gorgeous looking couple! They are so well-matched, it’s amazing. Great to see JDG’s old friends turning up for his wedding, like Sohn Ji Chang and Han Jae Suk. Where is Chaerim and Kim So Yeon? Aww, they should have been there…it would have been like an All About Eve reunion. Haha.

  13. 13 sol

    i hope it lasts…

  14. 14 Kelela

    There’s a lot of good lookin’ at this wedding. I love the various casual to classy looks. With 500+ people, it’d be easy to get lost in the crowd.

  15. 15 erectus

    you are so right about the red carpet for award show javabeans. it’s like combining celebrities from the big 3 stations in korea. haha.. kwon sang woo’s baby is soo cute..

  16. 16 theedie

    Wow, what a media circus. I was really hoping SHK would show up with Hyun Bin and we’d finally get to see some pics of them as a real couple. Oh well =[

  17. 17 tlina069

    “Everyoneโ€™s favorite โ€œchepโ€ …” — HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! OMG!!! YOU REALLY MADE ME LAUGH SO MUCH TODAY!!!!!

  18. 18 Yen

    So Ji Sub and Hyun Bin. <3

  19. 19 diana

    bali!!! indonesia!! my home countryyyy!

  20. 20 chowon

    Does baby Kwon have a website yet? He is so adorable. He would be the perfect prince in the next installment of Chuno.

  21. 21 Dave Choi

    doesnt exactly seem like things you’d be wearing to a wedding…i feel like people went a bit too casual. i guess it’s just me.
    well, they finally got married tho. the most high profile wedding of the year happened.

  22. 22 krnkimbap

    Oooh~ Talk about A-listers… Not a huge fan of Go So Young but as long as they’re happy! And yes… Kim Nam-Gil gets away with everything! He’s a walking sex on legs… And I’ve seen that Burberry-style dress on about three other korean celebrities…. Anyways, hope the marriage lasts~ ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. 23 yeschef

    Lee Da Hae said she and Jang Dong Gun are neighbors and good friends. However, I don’t see her at the wedding. Is she trying to avoid Song Seung Hoen?

  24. 24 mandy

    not feeling the bride’s dress

  25. 25 Sobia

    JDG looking very princely… very sweet and happy.

    It’s true, Lee Byung-heon does always look the same. He reminds me of the actor who played the villain in Casina Royale, Mads Mikkelsen. They are both beautiful. They will both be extremely well-preserved 60-year-olds, putting us all to shame with their ridiculous fitness levels and fine facial architecture…

    Oh, and Joo Jin Mo — he is one right sexy bastard; that is all I have to say about that. HUBBA. HUBBA.

  26. 26 Obsesive

    Dammit. I wish I was famous too…So many hot actors xD

  27. 27 ruthie

    waahhh! i was hoping that song hye kyo could change her mind not goin here. but seeing Rain and Lee Byung Heon…and she’s gonna be with Hyun Bin? KYAAAA! what a site! u’ll be guilty to take the spotlight from the couple right?

  28. 28 Christine

    The newlyweds look adorable! They look soo in love. And Kwon Sang-woo, Sohn Tae-young, and son look sooo adorable as well! They look like such a happy and beautiful family!

    Oh.. who the hell wears jeans to weddings!? Seriously!? LOL.

    Anyways, looks like everyone had fun!! Especially the newlyweds. =]

  29. 29 miss_procrastination

    whoa. EVERYONE went to their wedding. Congrats to them!

  30. 30 Amyable

    Which wedding shots are pre-wedding and which are actual wedding day pics? White bow tie or black bow tie?

  31. 31 Laica

    LOL @ “I wonder if stars secretly love daytime weddings because it gives them all an excuse to wear shades.”

    I was wondering the same thing! ๐Ÿ™‚

    So many beautiful people… wow.

  32. 32 dannaluk

    the couple look soo much younger than their real ages…just beautiful…wish they have a verry happy married life!!…the kwon family looks soo adorable…i ws hoping too see some other celebs too..guess they must have been busy…..or maybe they decided not to go cause they wouldnt be able to cope being surrounded by so many sexy men (like i wouldnt)!!

  33. 33 KKim

    That’s quite a guest list there. I wonder how many girls were desperate to be one of the guests’ “plus one” so she could say she was at Jang Dong Gun’s wedding? As I was scrolling through the pictures, I couldn’t help but think they could have had a “Neukkim” reunion as well! 90s dramas forever!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. 34 sandrita

    chae rim wasn’t invited??

  35. 35 Tenshii

    Quite a guest list… if you want to see actors and actress in one place = attend weddings or awards LOL

  36. 36 supsh

    Kim! Nam! Gil!
    So! Ji! Sub!
    Jung! Woo! Sung!

    … Eung-sung-aaah!

    (looking at that guestlist.. I’ll sat here flailing my arms all day..)
    All at the same freakin’ party!

    The newlyweds look so beautiful together, simply stunning and love her dress!

    Hahaha! At ‘blobs’.

  37. 37 selina

    whoa So Ji Sub is So hot . <3

  38. 38 Roselily

    Wishing the couple a happy married life ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. 39 dramagrl17

  40. 40 ais730

  43. 43 bluefire

    Thanks for this JB!
    Talk about a fairytale wedding. Everything is simply gorgeous!

  44. 44 Biscuit

    During these type of events, I’m always eager to pay attention to the outfits and pictures, etc…

    But today……… I’m still in shock that Jang Dong Gun is MARRIED. The horror!

    Yet, no one can doubt that the couple looks good together. And I mean g-o-o-d.

    Hope they last long ๐Ÿ™‚

  45. 45 animedork101

    Wow JB, you really know your Korean Entertainment Industry! You would think with, you know, the site and various other postings that this wouldn’t be news to me, but WOW! I know I’m just a name on the screen who occasionally leaves a comment or two, but I can’t help but say “MAN YOU ARE COOL!”… Obviously I’m still rocking it with the kids, and can’t buy my own alcohol (in the U Ess of Ay at least)… Let’s use that as an excuse for the childishness on my part. ๐Ÿ˜€

  46. 46 pabo ceo reom

    WTH……this is even better than some of the awards ceremony in Korea. I bet you those promoters would kill for a guest list like this lol.

    And Ha Ji-won. Squeee. Sorry hehe.

  47. 47 lals

    Reading all the comments about people thinking that certain celebs weren’t invited because they don’t see the pictures…do they really think JB would post pictures of ALL 500+ people who went to the wedding? My goodness, that would be a lot of pictures! Thanks, JB, for posting the ones that you did! =]

    Blessings to the happy couple =]

  48. 48 Qwenli

    Wow Jang Dong Gun, really nearly got all the big top male hallyu stars to his wedding, the only person I can think of not there is Bae Yong Jun -haha.

    Great looking couple! and I like the family shot of Kwon Sang Woo and family too!

  49. 49 Krisma

    Como pudo casarse mi novio??? Ya me habรญa prometido que serรญa yo la elegida jaja

    Bueno mรกs vale que se haya casado y no me saliera como Ricky Martin jaja

    Que bueno que me entere hasta ahorita, si no hubiera impedido esa boda a como diera lugar…

    Pero no importa JDG, puedo y quiero ser la otra… jaja te serรฉ incondicional

    Te Amo JDG

  50. 50 Porcelain

    First Korean actor crush ever… Cries happy tears…

    But dayum… the male stars… some of them were working it… like Jung Woo Sung, Joo Jin Mo, Kim Nam Gil…

    Not working it Hyun Bin… (why bb? you USED to be a HOTTIE!), So Ji Sub… angsty casual?

    And I agree stars probably likes daytime wedding to whip out their shades!
