Wonder Girls’ Sunye’s Wedding To Be At Hotel Instead Of Church
JYP Entertainment announced, “Sunye will be getting married on January 26 at 12:30pm at Seoul Lotte Hotel in Sogong-dong.” As Sunye and her husband-to-be are both devoted Christians, they will decorate the wedding venue like a church for their special day.
A representative from JYP Entertainment explained the reasons behind Sunye’s choice of venue. This representative said, “Sunye thought a hotel was a better option than a church to accommodate more people since there will be a lot of reporters and spectators on the day of wedding.”
While no details of the wedding has been decided, this representative told that Sunye is diligently preparing for her wedding, discussing the overall wedding with different people. The officiant of the wedding has not being decided yet. 2AM‘s Jo Kwon will be the master of ceremony, as they have been friends for more than half of their lives. Jo Kown and Sunye were first discovered together through SBS “JYP Project – 99% Challenge” in 2001. They have been best friends since then, through their trainee days.
