Sunye to halt Wonder Girls activites after her wedding



Sun will no longer be a member of the Wonder Girls after the upcoming press conference for her wedding.

The Wonder Girls leader will officially stop promoting with the group after her wedding, which will be held on January 26th at 10:30PM KST at Seoul’s Lotte Hotel. Sun is marrying Korean-Canadian James Park, who she met while they were both volunteering in Haiti.

JYP Entertainment announced, “With her wedding ahead on the 26th, Sun will be completing her official promotions after the press conference. The press conference will be held two hours before her wedding.” It was also added that Sun’s fiance will not be attending the conference.

In related news, the Wonder Girls are currently reported to be preparing for solo promotions.

SORRY GUYS!! Allkpop first wrote it as if she was leaving, then changed it later when I wasn't on my computer. :(

wow. best wishes to Sun and her husband. if this is what they desire it's good she feels confident enough to make this decision with JYP.

"the press conference will be held two hours before her wedding."
this was a bit alarming :/

mte as if the day isn't stressful enough already, let's throw in a press conference where people will ask you all about leaving the Wonder Girls. ;;-_-

It's not surprising. It's pretty normal for celebrity weddings in South Korea to be open to the media (should the celeb choose) before they walk down the isle. I remember when I first got into kpop I thought it was odd how open some celebs weddings were (pretty different to american celebs weddings) but then i realized it was quite a common thing to have press there taking pictures and asking questions and their fellow celeb attendees posing for pictures and answering the press's questions. I'm not sure if you were aware of that so I apologize if I misunderstood your comment.

no i didn't know all of that, thanks for clarifying :) i guess i knew media was sometimes because i've seen the pictures before. but are the bride and groom involved in that part?
two hours seemed soon to me because it would probably take a longer time for her to get ready for the wedding? i'm pretty slow so even on a normal unimportant day it takes me about an hour to get ready ^^

I'm still pretty unclear as to how Korean weddings relate to American weddings (are you American?). A lot of people say the western style wedding is public / for friends & acquaintances and then they might have a more private ceremony involving just the families.

yes i am American... i'm not sure i understand your question: are you talking about a western style Korean wedding?

personally, i've been to a few types of weddings in the States (Roman Catholic, Hindu, and traditional Thai) and they have been a little different. the Hindu and Thai ceremonies were often only for close friends and family, but the reception included people who were not at the ceremony. at the Roman Catholic weddings more people were invited to the actual ceremony than the reception. for all three types, the ceremony and the reception took place in different locations (the reception was usually at night with a dinner for guests).

but this is just my experience and cannot be generalized across weddings for those religions/cultures or for the country! does this help?

At the Press Conference... "WHY ARE YOU LEAVING. YOU ARE SO SELFISH"
way to make her not want to walk down the aisle two hours later...

gahh, WG will not be the same but as long as she's happy, I'm happy for her.
