RAIN & KIM TAE HEE’s SGD1,600 WEDDING

When Korean superstar Rain announced his marriage plans with actress Kim Tae Hee on 17 Jan 2017, no one could have expected that the wedding would be held two days later.

In his handwritten letter posted on his Instagram account, Rain had expressed the couple’s wish to have a private and quiet wedding as their country is currently going through emotional and financially difficult times.

In contrast to many of the high profile celebrity weddings we saw in 2016, the couple, both Catholics, held their wedding at Gaheo-dong Catheral in Seoul. The modest ceremony attended by some 50 guests cost just SGD1,600.

A graduate of the Seoul National University with a diploma in fashion studies, Kim chose to design her own wedding dress, with the help of her stylist, instead of flaunting a designer gown.

After the wedding, Kim released her handwritten letter to fans, thanking them for their well wishes and support in spite of the sudden news. She also thanked her partner for his “overflowing love” and promised to be someone he can lean on and count on for support.

The low-key couple had originally declared that their honeymoon will be postponed for the foreseeable future. On 20 Jan, however, their management companies announced in a joint press release that the couple will be leaving for their honeymoon on 22 Jan. Was it a ploy to throw the paparazzi off-guard? We’ll never know.

Although the specific location was not revealed, holiday makers in Bali can keep their eyes open for the newlyweds who will be there for a supposed total of five days.
