Just Married: Valen Hsu says ‘I do’ in Seoul

Best known for her ballads like “Lei Hai (泪海)”, Taiwanese singer Valen Hsu has tied the knot with her South Korean boyfriend Choi Jae Sung (nicknamed “Mr. Big”) last week (Aug 12) in Seoul.

The 39-year-old “Queen of Love Songs” had registered her marriage last November.


The wedding banquet was held at Aston House, the location of popular Korean drama Hotelier and also a hot favourite for couples to hold weddings. Taiwanese media reported that it was a heartwarming occasion. Valen was led down the aisle by her father and the couple exchanged vows in front of family members and close friends. The couple dedicated songs to each other with the accompaniment of live musicians – Mr. Big sang ‘She’ and Valen crooned a Korean song ‘I Am In Love’.

40-year-old Mr. Big, a senior manager at S.M. Entertainment, was shy when it came to singing but found courage when the guests gave him a round of applause. The happy bride revealed she had secretly practiced the song two months ago to surprise her husband.

It is also said that the couple went through traditional Korean wedding customs earlier in the day.
