It was a, pardon the pun, big bang of a wedding for K-pop star Taeyang and actress Min Hyo Rin, who tied the knot on February 3. It started with a private church ceremony, officiated by actor Ki Tae Young, and attended by their family and closest friends, which just happens to be the who’s who of Korean showbiz. Singer Zion T also performed at the ceremony while stars like pop star Seven, former 2NE1 member CL, actor Cha Tae Hyun and Winner’s Song Min Ho and Lee Seung Hoon were among those who scored an invite. According to a statement from Taeyang’s agency, YG Entertainment, the wedding’s after-party was held at Paradise City, an integrated resort in Incheon not unlike our own Resorts World Sentosa, where Taeyang’s BigBang bandmate Daesung was the emcee and CL and the groom’s other bandmate Seungri turned in performances.
Taeyang, who is reportedly enlisting into the army this year, looked dashing (but of course) in a tux while his bride was resplendent in a gown from Oscar de la Renta and a tiara from French luxury jeweller Chaumet. And complementing the gorgeous couple was one of the most beautiful celeb wedding venues we’ve ever seen. Taeyang and Min Hyo Rin’s wedding planner Youngsong Martin had transformed the interior of Paradise City’s Grand Ballroom into a dreamy, flower-filled garden that gave us serious petal-envy. But we shouldn’t be surprised. After all, Youngsong Martin is best known for creating that unforgettable forest wedding scene between Bella and Edward in Twilight: Breaking Dawn.
We guess nothing says undying and everlasting love more than that.
