Gianna Jun ties the knot
Top Korean actress Gianna Jun married a Korean businessman at Hotel Shilla in central Seoul on Friday.
She tied the knot with Choi Jun-hyeok, the grandson of acclaimed hanbok designer Lee Young-hee and the son of also famous fashion designer Lee Jeong-woo.
"I feel nervous but I will make a return for those who supported me by showing them my happy married life," said Gianna during a press conference held at the hotel just hours before her wedding.
While the 31-year-old actress wore a beautiful wedding gown designed by Lebanese designer Reem Acra delivered directly from the designer's shop in New York, she chose another goddess-like dress embellished with sparkling crystal from British designer Jenny Packham for the press conference.
Singer Lee Jeock, known to be one of her favorites, sang a wedding song for the couple.
Gianna says she will continue her acting career after her marriage.
Her husband is currently working at Bank of America's Seoul branch, according to reports.
The two have known each other since they were in their early 20s, and started dating about a year ago.
Gianna, who debuted in 1997 as a fashion model, rose to stardom after the mega-hit 2001 movie My Sassy Girl.
She made her Hollywood debut in 2009 with Blood: The Last Vampire, and recently starred in the movie Snow Flower and the Secret Fan with Hollywood hottie Hugh Jackman and top Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi.
Her new movie, The Thieves will be released this summer.
