It is January 26th in Korea, which marks a very special day for the lovely Sun of Wonder Girls.

As you all know, Sun is tying the knot with her fiance James Park, becoming the first member out of the current idol groups to get married!

Sun’s wedding started recently at 12:30 PM KST at the Seoul Lotte Hotel, but ahead of the event, the beautiful bride held a press conference and shared her excitement about the ceremony and her upcoming life as a newlywed.

Sun commented, “Marriage to me is a turning point in life and a new start. Since I was little, I liked being on the stage and being a singer so I have kept running towards achieving that until now. However, as time passed, I wondered about what direction my life would take next. And naturally, marriage came about and I think it is a new start as a turning point.

She consoled some of her fans as she shared, “I’m so thankful that my members sincerely congratulated me and was truly happy for me. As they cheered me on, I felt strengthened while preparing for my marriage… Many people have expressed their sadness and regret as well, but I will continue to be with you all so please don’t be sad.

She also revealed her thoughts on who she thought might be the next to get married out of the Wonder Girls members, stating, “Each of the members have their dreams about starting a family… And although Lim is the youngest, I personally feel that maybe she will marry before the other members. I think Lim will be a great wife and mother.

As it is known she’ll be heading to Maldives for her honeymoon, she revealed that she planned to “spend it comfortably” when asked about her first honeymoon night coming up. She also confirmed, “There is no new life in my stomach at the moment” denying any rumors about this being a shotgun wedding. However, she revealed that she would like to have “one son and one daughter”.

James really loves kids. I always dreamed about a happy family since I was little, so I think keeping that in mind, I think James will be a good father too.

Sun also explained Jo Kwon‘s reaction to her asking to oversee the ceremony as she stated, “At first, when I asked Jo Kwon, he said that he felt uncomfortable with the idea because he thought he would cry. However since he is a guy who is good with a mic, I’m not worried.

The idol also revealed more details: “I asked Yenny to sing the congratulatory song. I thought it’d be nice for JYP artist to do so, and J.Y. Park has also agreed to do it as well. I thought it might feel awkward for him, but he seemed to be fine with it so I was thankful.

The question on everyone’s mind was then answered as she shared the story behind her wedding ring. “According to my husband-to-be, he was trying to prepare a ring from his grandma, but it turned out his parents had secretly already prepared a ring. I learned about the significance of the ring of my in-laws, and how they wanted to get the same ring for the future as well, and I almost cried. I told myself, I’d want to become a mother-in-law like that someday as well.

Lastly, she sent a message to the public and her fans with a short, but sweet words: “I’ll live happily and well.

Some of the stars attending the wedding are JJ Project, San E, J.Y. Park, Wonder Girls, Younha, Girls’ Generation, Bada, Noel, Ahn Hye Won, Park Kyung Lim, 2AM, and more.

We hope all the best for Sun!

OP's note: akp missed a few bits therefore I included some bits translated by Wonderfuls on twitter

When reporters asked Sun Ye about how she felt for being the first idol to get married, Sun Ye said, "I didn't think about getting married as being the first idol to do so. To be honest, rather than I, I heard that some people who were idols before now lived happily married. I wanted to find happiness as well, so you could say that I followed them."

Sun Ye "Until now, I've been chasing my dream on stage, I did so since a very young age. As time went by, I felt like I had to determine the new direction my life would take. I believe that my wedding is my life's turning point."

Sun Ye about the girls, "Sohee, Ye Eun, Yoobin and Hyerim congratulated me and gave me their blessings and encouragements. Thanks to the members, I was able to gather my strength and smoothly go on with the wedding's preparations."

Sun Ye said with teary eyes,about the Wonder Girls' future plans, "The members will be focusing on individual activities. And one day, I will too, be standing on stage as a singer once again."

Sun Ye about the members, "I'm really thankful to the members for congratulating me and giving me their blessings. Even though a lot of people would think it's unfortunate (for not seeing us stand on stage as five), you will have plenty of time to see and appreciate each member's individuality, so I hope you won't be too disappointed about it."

Sun Ye, "I'm not quitting being a singer. Even though I can't give you a definite answer for now, my voice lives only through music. I will never be too far so keep an eye out."

JYPE revealed, "Sun Ye is getting married and she is absolutely not leaving the group. For the time being, the members will be conducting individual activities."

I met a smart young girl and taught her for 12 years. But I realize that I learned more from her than I taught her. Congratulations Sun...

It's official, I finally shed a tear. Happy for her!

I like her grown, the one she was at the altar. Reminds me a bit what my mother wore in her wedding with the sheer lace and embroidery.

Though, I like this one more

i've never been a WG stan or close follower but i know bits about each member and enough to know that Sunye deserves this so much my god I could cry for her. I truly wish her all the happiness in the world with her new husband and family.

Also, I loved the WG's members outfits, especially Yoobin and Sohee, they looked fab.

Weddings are different in Korea, I suggest watching:

Interest though...guests can come casual, it's common.
love_keiko 26th-Jan-2013 07:26 pm (UTC)
WOW. this is SUPER informal! did not even kno that! i never understood why koreans dress so casual to weddings and now i kno why, lol.

i dont kno if i like it! the idea of being rushed out of a hall of my own reception so the next bride can come in?!

i'm too selfish for that shit, lol.

but i think it's really cool they cut the cake with a sword!
muramatsu_aoi 26th-Jan-2013 06:59 pm (UTC)
she revealed that she planned to “spend it comfortably” when asked about her first honeymoon night coming up.

I wonder who asked, and what is one supposed to say to it ^_^

modestgoddess79 26th-Jan-2013 09:20 pm (UTC)
yeah that question seems like TMI
iznanassi 26th-Jan-2013 07:00 pm (UTC)
Ok but SNSD those outfits aren't really appropriate.

This is probably the best thing to happen in kpop in a long time though, she deserves to be happy ;u;
bgurl1210 26th-Jan-2013 09:30 pm (UTC)
Ok but SNSD those outfits aren't really appropriate.

Actually their outfits are the norm for Korean wedding attire. Not a lot of people here on Omona seem to be familiar with the wedding attire guest wear at Korean weddings. While other cultures have formal wear, Korea is more of a casual wear at weddings. So their outfits are the norm.

ceecile 26th-Jan-2013 07:01 pm (UTC)
I'm so happy for her. She deserves to have a new family of her own <3

How do these wedding work? Do they kind of invite themselves? As long as you're a celeb it's ok?
caramelorchoco 26th-Jan-2013 07:25 pm (UTC)
i'm sure they still send out invites
twinedays 26th-Jan-2013 07:01 pm (UTC)
sunye looked uncomfortable with the media attention at the press con area but she's glowing down the aisle. awww~
aifurikuri 26th-Jan-2013 07:02 pm (UTC)
^_^ May they have a wonderful life together!
I still don't understand the logic behind showing up to a wedding dressed like they do in Korea...
