Ku Hye Sun and Ahn Jae Hyun, the main leads from the KBS drama “Blood” have officially filed their marriage on May 20. On the following day, which was Korea’s Married Couples’ Day (May 21), the couple held a small family gathering to witness their union. Instead of holding a grand wedding ceremony as expected of two famous celebrities, they had decided to forgo an expensive wedding and donated their would-be wedding and honeymoon expenses to the Severance Children’s Hospital in Sinchon, Seoul.

Ku and Ahn first met on the set of drama “Blood”, where the story was set mostly in a hospital. During their filming, they often saw child patients and wanted to do something for these young children who are battling diseases, leading to their decision to celebrate their wedding in a more meaningful way. The newlyweds also went down in person to the Severance Children’s Hospital on their wedding day.
The amount donated by Ku and Ahn will go towards further research on children’s diseases and constructing a resting area for young patients in the Severance Children’s Hospital.

Even though the couple did not hold an elaborate wedding ceremony, Ahn specially prepared a surprise proposal for Ku a few weeks back. He had arranged a bed of lovely flowers and plants in his car trunk, among which lies a box that contains a wedding ring and a card. Ahn shared this happy moment with fans and the media through a proposal video on his Instagram.
Not only is this celebrity couple a perfect match with their outstanding looks, they are also the epitome of generosity and compassion. Congratulations to this kind-hearted couple! ❤
