Won Bin and Lee Na-young get married in secret
And another heartthrob goes off the market. After dating for two years (and very quietly at that), Won Bin (The Man From Nowhere) and Lee Na-young (Runaway: Plan B) tied the knot in a secret wedding ceremony on Saturday, May 30. I know Won Bin is known for keeping his private life private, but I’m a little impressed that they managed to pull off a wedding without the press catching wind of it.
The couple met in 2011 through their agency Eden 9, which still represents them both, and made the announcement that they were dating in July of 2013. They’ve since kept their relationship very quiet, to the point that you might not even know about them as a couple if you didn’t happen to catch the start of their relationship. (If this is you and you’re hyperventilating because you thought Won Bin was single until now, I’m sorry. Deep breaths.)
They held a quiet wedding ceremony on Saturday in Jeongseon, Gangwon-do, which is Won Bin’s hometown (and where the Three Meals a Day farm is, for point of reference). Only family members were in attendance at the simple country affair, which took place at a nameless inn. According to their agency, they vowed: “As I remember the reverent vow that takes root in the land where I was born and raised, even when life’s hardships find us, I will live as a steadfast tree, constant and not easily swayed.”
I just hope that they follow up this news with some new projects that are in the pipeline, because it’s been an awfully long time since we’ve seen either of them onscreen. Won Bin hasn’t been in a single project since 2010’s The Man From Nowhere, and Lee Na-young did do one movie in 2012 (Howling), but has otherwise been quiet since 2010 when she did a drama. It would just be nice to see Won Bin more than once or twice a decade is all.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
