Lee Seon-kyun’s wedding photos

So. Cute.

That’s White Tower and Coffee Prince actor Lee Seon-kyun (or as some of us like to call him, The Voice) with his fiancée, The Naked Kitchen and Romance Hunter actress Jeon Hye-jin.

These newly released photos precede the ceremony by only a few days; the couple weds this Saturday, May 23.

Lee Seon-kyun said of his fiancée, “I’m used to always seeing her looking easygoing and casual, and when I saw her wearing a dress for the photo shoot, she was so beautiful. Thinking of how we’ll really be marrying in a few days, I’m a little nervous, but because it’s the day my beloved Hye-jin will become my lifetime best friend, I’m incredibly thrilled.”

Lee’s good friend and fellow actor Oh Man-seok (King and I, Vineyard Man) will emcee the event along with another good friend, Hong Sung-bo.

Also, songwriter Tearliner (who wrote the song that Lee Seon-kyun sang in an episode of Coffee Prince, “Ocean Travel”) and singer-actor Kim Chang-wan (who played the café manager in Coffee Prince) will sing. The ceremony itself will be closed to the public.

Omo! So adorable. I like how natural these pictures look, like they're anticipating a life of normalcy together instead of just focusing on the day itself. Congrats to both of them!

I wonder (a small bit) as to the reasoning behind the release of the pictures.

There are probably many points which support their actions - i.e., a controlled release of pics satisfies rabid fans and simultaneously discourages paparazzi from scaling walls and breaching privacy to snap photos; they are public figures and so in sharing semi-private moments with the public, they are fulfilling their duties to the public; pictures are going to be taken anyway, and so they might as well pick and choose which ones they want to release; there may be value in selling the pics so by creating the cutest pics for selling they can maximize money earned and then donated to various charities; and finally, they owe their livelihood to their fan bases, and so they really do need to give up some of their privacy to their fans because that's the devil's bargain when it comes to being in the spotlight, etc.

More cynical reasons are that they are rather self-absorbed and seek attention even when they aren't on movie / drama sets, or that it is difficult to buy this kind of positive publicity for future momentum building- really, this is just about fame and money.

**

Personally, I don't mind if they release pics, or what their motivation for doing so. It is their lives, and they are within their rights to live as they please. The only issue (and a rather small one at that) I have is in the arbitrariness of it all - which cute staged scenes are available for viewing to the public, which scenes are private, which selcas are freely uploaded onto the internet, and which photos are commercially sold to the highest bidder. The rhyme or reason behind it all seems to be money, more often than not, which might sully the rather pure notions of it all - love.

But then again, we are all hypocritical in our own way, no? Seeking attention, and then seeking privacy, seeking acceptance, and then affirming our independence from what others may think.... Judging from afar, then, at least, I'd side with Lee Seon-Kyun and Jeon Hye-Jin staging cute pictures over nonsensical commentary on random blogs.... at least cuteness is a virtue...

samsooki, maybe you aren't familiar with k-celeb culture? Lots / almost all k-celeb couples release wedding pictures like this. I see where you're coming from but IMHO it's a little unfair to take a swipe at one couple when this is practically industry standard. I've been seeing a lot of your comments on this site and I enjoy how thoughtful you are but perhaps you would enjoy Korean entertainment more if you didn't look at each post as a battle between good and evil, LOL. It's entertainment! It's supposed to be fun ! :) :)

Sigh, my heart melted a little bit when I read that. These two are so cute I'm actually kind of jealous.

And OMG Tearliner!! I bet this is gonna be THE wedding of the year.

These pics are completely adorable! Like lollipop says, these kinds of pictures are totally routine (and I really love seeing them ~ don't we all? ;) ). Kim Chang Wan was hilarious in Coffee Prince; of course, he must know LSK well by now as they were also together in White Tower. KCW is one of my favorite character actors. He's a chameleon. He was the kindly chef in I Really Really Like You. Hadn't really focused on the fact that he's also a singer and musician; I just know he's a terrific actor! :lol:

I hope Kim Chang Wan will rock the guitar as well. He is a great character actor...but in Queen of Housewives (where he plays the bad guy), I keep half-expecting him to start picking his nose or toes whenever he's on screen. LOL. :P

Been to a friend's wedding photoshoot in Korea, and I have to say, most concepts and poses they used were rather awkward and contrived, even though it supposedly was a good studio that some celebs had used. But my friend ended up liking the pics I took documenting the whole day more^^

These pics with Lee Seon-kyun and his fiancee look really natural and comfortable though. But if I have to nitpick...the overexposed white background is kinda annoying, especially in the first picture where it takes up nearly three quarters of the frame!

yes yes, most of Asians are now love making "pre-wed" pictures.

They used to have 'serious' themed, with wedding gown and indoor shoots, but nowadays, the photographers have many new ideas, and the pics are more like commercial shoots.

I like the casual themed like this. it's more natural, and everlasting.
but in my country, the couples now are making 2 different concepts altogether.
Some people I know even made their pre wed pictures overseas ( around Europe, for example ).. when you made your pre wed pics in Europe, so where will you go for honeymoon? Antarctica? Heh. Rich people.
( oh yes, I'm still in the "45 million other people's" category that Do Woo was talking about. :D )

About these pics, so lovely! they do look very in love! Congrats, and next, I want to see the baby's pic soon!

@5 lollipop, @24 kitty -

You both are very correct - this is entertainment and fun. And you both are right, I should not take things so darn seriously. LOL. Sigh. (But I wasn't taking a swipe at them per se. The Voice has my vote for best voice, after all, and I loved his acting performance in CP).

Lame excuse - I'm a little bit maudlin, a bit moody, these days. A person I thought I was close to, apparently, I'm not, and while it is probably my fault (given my experience), I still would have appreciated an explanation but all I am getting is silence (no call, no email, no visit) and so I am kind of thinking in the mode like "well, I'm writing you off as a lost friend and so be it" but this person is pretty awesome and so if I do that, maybe I am the only one who takes the hit... And if that is the case, then really, I shouldn't care at all but that just makes me feel worse, since that means that I wasn't friends to begin with...

...anyways, so okay. they are a pretty cute couple. I can admit that. It's also a little cheesy, but so are most couple photos pre-wedding.

Please give your friend a while longer, something may have made this person want to withdraw from the world and friends for a bit to recharge their mind/spirit etc. Supportive by giving space/quietness. Best of luck.....

@30 B.B. @31 chajjye

The story - last friday night, I was helping a friend of mine move (I have an SUV) and when I was there, she was there too (she is friends with the family too)! And I think she said "hello" or something like that, and I was like, "omg" so I just bowed awkwardly (I couldn't think of what to do!!!) and pretty much just ignored her. My wife is friends with her, the family I was helping move is close friends with her, and honestly, pretty much, she is close friends with everybody I know, but not with me. I thought about writing her and saying something like, "hey, sorry about ignoring you last Friday, but you also didn't say anything to me, and I'm still mad at you for giving me the silent treatment for like months but I'll stop mad in a heartbeat if you want to be friends with me, but if you don't want to be friends with me then I'm going to continue to be acting childish whenever I see you and I'll continue to be a little bit bitter." But that's too much honesty for an email.

Bleh. My life as a k-drama sucks because its a daily drama and there's way too much angst and over-acting.

Not trying to rain on the couple, but our PD, feels like it is pouring in his direction please excuse us just for a moment to lend some support.
And its not Friday.

@ Samsooki

“hey, sorry about ignoring you last Friday, but you also didn’t say anything to me, and I’m still mad at you for giving me the silent treatment for like months but I’ll stop mad in a heartbeat if you want to be friends with me, but if you don’t want to be friends with me then I’m going to continue to be acting childish whenever I see you and I’ll continue to be a little bit bitter.” But that’s too much honesty for an email.''

Thought 1: Someone may have said something out of turn and your friend has stepped back to prevent the rumor mill.
Thought 2: Could a third party have asked your friend to cool friendship with your self, family etc.
Thought 3: Event or happening, that makes your friend unable to confide, but results in behaviour change.

How would your drama heros deal with this, come on Samsooki, engage that memory and logic of yours.
Tread gently. Ask gently. All the best.

"How would your drama heros deal with this, come on Samsooki, engage that memory and logic of yours. Tread gently. Ask gently. All the best."

Well, Hyun Bin in MNIKSS would hold a grudge. For years. Then it would take a Daniel Henney exclaiming "She has cancer! And I'm her doctor!" to get me to snap out of the grudge. This is the approach of choice, I believe. If it is good enough for Hyun Bin, then it is good enough for me. Also, Lee Seon Kyun ALSO used this technique in the Coffee Prince Shop #1 (two points for me, bringing this back to the original thread! I'm not hijacking anymore!). Remember? When his ex came back, Lee Seon Kyun gave her the cold shoulder initially, even threatening violence by slamming a can of beer into the wall.

So, The Voice and Binnie both agree that the best approach is to be bitter, and so who am I to disagree?

ROFL! :P

like B.B. stated, there may be one of any number of reasons for your friend's behavior.

Question[s] (to ask yourself): Was your "friendship" pre- or pre- and post- [your] marriage...and is your wife friends with her as well?

Or you could be Han Kyul and yell "jjajangmyun or chinese food?" when he was trying to talk to Eun Chan after their spat.

@47 hjkomo -

Her knowledge of me started pre- my marriage to my wife, because her friendship with my wife was pre-everything (funny how Korean women all seem to know each other). So this particular person knows more way more me than I know of her, including the fact that she was friends with both my wife and my wife's friend whom I "let go' to get my wife in the first place. But that's all fine, I am guessing, since all that stuff was years ago, and this recent freezeout was just in 2009. I think this stemmed from the fact that I told her that I really dislike 50% friendship friends, and, since she apparently doesn't have me at the top on her list of friends, she didn't want me to continue waiting for her to be a close friend, since that wasn't going to happen. Plus, I'm a married guy and she's a single girl who is close friends with my wife. So, yeah, I get it, but I'm still bitter.

In K-dramas, the leading actors and actresses basically remain the same age (because they just cast fresh people every year), and so the fantasy world never ages. But we age, we grow older all the time. And so we only get THIS life to live properly, we only get this one shot to make and keep the friends we want to keep. If we screw up, if we mess up a friendship, then how much harder will it be to try to make things work again, and often, its just gone forever.
