More Details Revealed for Wonder Girls’ Sunye’s Wedding



As her wedding date approaches, more details about Wonder Girls’ Sunye special day are made public. According to reports in local news agencies, Sunye’s January wedding will be held at the Lotte Hotel in Seoul. 2AM‘s Jo Kwon, well-known to be a close friend of Sunye and a JYP Entertainment labelmate, is reported to lead her entourage.


Reports further said that there will be two parts to the celebration, which includes a Christian marriage ceremony. Three hundred of the couple’s closest family and friends are expected to attend.

Jo Kwon, with his experience in hosting and entertainment programs, as well as his close relationship with Sunye, is anticipated to create a bright and cheerful mood for the wedding as the MC.

Sunye has publicly revealed her relationship to Korean-Canadian James Pak in 2011 and announced her engagement on November 27 through a statement from her management company. The news of her forthcoming marriage gained much attention because she is the first currently active idol to tie the knot.

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. Celebrity photographer Oh Joong Seok will be taking pictures at Sunye’s wedding.Celebrity photographer Oh Joong Seo

Meanwhile, Sunye’s soon to be husband is a Korean-Canadian missionary. The couple met during a missionary trip together in Haiti. Previously in November 2011, Sunye appeared on SBS “Strong Heart” and surprised everyone by saying, “As JYP lifted the relationship ban, I started dating someone.” In July 2012, Sunye once again surprised everyone by openly discussing the possibilities of marrying her boyfriend on mnet “Beatles Code 2.”

After the wedding, Sunye will focus on her private life while other members of Wonder Girls are focusing on their solo careers in acting, producing, and so on.

I really want to see her wedding dress. I just know she'll look like a queen!
hpn88 6th-Dec-2012 08:44 pm (UTC)
I think the first part is the close family only (probs for the grooms side) and the second part is for the public/JYP side. Hoping that since they are having the second and hopefully more public ceremony that we get lots of pictures :)

So are the Wonder Girls going on a hiatus in the meantime? D=
miwa201 6th-Dec-2012 09:03 pm (UTC)
The Wonder Girls as a whole yes, but the other members will take on solo projects. Sohee will probably act, Yeeun will produce and (hopefully) release a solo, idk about Yubin and Lim.
k0dama 7th-Dec-2012 03:34 pm (UTC)
I think this is how SES broke up too..

It was solo activities here and there but they ended up ending the group.

Tbh before Sunye announced that she's dating James, I secretly wished that they'd get married one day I know this sounds probably a bit bizarre

eishastan 6th-Dec-2012 09:25 pm (UTC)
It does sound bizarre since Sunye is a woman.

I bet JoKwon cried when he realized that he doesn't get to wear bridesmaid dress even if he's the maid of honor.
yasmine2009 6th-Dec-2012 09:17 pm (UTC)
Flawless adorable friendship is amazing. <3 I'm excited to see Sunye in her wedding dress. *.* She'll look perfect.
sharpietoday 6th-Dec-2012 09:21 pm (UTC)
I wouldn't be surprised if Jo Kwon gets all ~David Tutera~ in the bridal planning.
eishastan 6th-Dec-2012 09:26 pm (UTC)
I'm excited to see her in her dress, i've always consider her the prettiest WG so i bet she'll look amazing!
pivotandsway 7th-Dec-2012 02:33 am (UTC)
Yeah she's really beautiful it will be nice to see that without distracting/weird hair & clothing since all the focus will be on her first and foremost.

annhh 6th-Dec-2012 09:54 pm (UTC)
I have to say the highlights/bolding looks like my studying method.

still can't believe this is happening! I hope nothing changes, she should remain as a part of the group I mean.
luvey 6th-Dec-2012 10:30 pm (UTC)
this is good. i hope this changes the way people look at idols and forcing them to hide relationships. but it is kinda sad that after the wedding she will go on hiatus and no longer to active.
k0dama 7th-Dec-2012 03:35 pm (UTC)
if she doesn't return next year, her career will indeed be over, and the existing restrictions in the Korean music industry will have won out again.
luvey 7th-Dec-2012 10:28 pm (UTC)
agreed, if she doesn't return early in the next year...she is done. she has a chance to be a pioneer, but i get a funky feeling about this. it is just odd timing considering the US Debut that was suppose to happen.
chunsakuma 6th-Dec-2012 11:25 pm (UTC)
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS omg, I cannot wait for Kwon tears. He is going to be a hot-ass mess AND IT WILL BE BEAUTIFUL.

This is just adorable!
bunica1990 7th-Dec-2012 12:28 am (UTC)
I'm so happy for her!


So is Jo Kwon going to walk her down the aisle?

lysblack 7th-Dec-2012 01:10 am (UTC)
i wonder if kwonie will be able to do it without stopping much to cry.
islandgurl84 7th-Dec-2012 01:29 am (UTC)
I'm so happy for Sunye my princess and her Canadian prince charming and of course fairy god mother Jo Kwon, eh.
kaylaa7x 7th-Dec-2012 01:44 am (UTC)
this wedding is going to be so beautiful; i love that kwon is basically going to be her ~man of honor. and it would be doubly sweet if she chose him to walk her down the aisle. they have the cutest friendship ever.
sandritablue 7th-Dec-2012 02:00 am (UTC)
I was actually praying for this to happen, either Kwon or JYP, but then i remembered Sunye's uncle...he's probably gonna be the one to walk her down the aisle or maybe her grandma. ;__;
kaylaa7x 8th-Dec-2012 04:05 am (UTC)
(late reply but...)

oh i didn't even realize she had an uncle lol. well if she's close to her family then that would probably be for the best. her grandma walking her down would be super sweet too. and kwonnie will be such a big part of her big day in any case.^^
chibiyunie 7th-Dec-2012 07:48 am (UTC)
I am just s happy for her, especially since she is getting married while still being active with the WG. I do hope that she will continue being an idol ~

I can't wait to see the dress and the outfits the guests are going to wear. I do wonder who will attend ^^
k0dama 7th-Dec-2012 03:36 pm (UTC)
I wish she would lay out definite comeback plans before getting married.
Many fans are concerned that wondergirls is over.
domokuniscute 7th-Dec-2012 10:36 pm (UTC)
I don 't think WG will disband, it seems a bit unclear and such but JYP won't give up on them + for Sunye I think her career is important to her.

Can't wait to see pics from the wedding and such.
nujagurl 8th-Dec-2012 02:13 am (UTC)
yep! (:
phililen3 12th-Dec-2012 08:37 am (UTC)
Why are they highlighting so much that it will be a Christian wedding? Is one of them not Christian?
