Here is the link to some wedding photos (including the actual husband) of 이효리 Hyori, Marmot’s Hole’s favourite (Can I say that? well, *I* like her). She got married in a very private, low-key ceremony at her own holiday manor in Jejudo on 1st of September – she kept her word – it was unlike the usual celebrity affairs (you know, grand hotels, all the celebrity guests vying to be the best dresser etc.)
She married 이상순 Lee Sangsun, a musician/DJ/composer/guitarist whom she met, working for animal rights and whom she got close to in 2011 in a talent-donation campaign (joint-composing songs) for abandoned pets.
A lot of Koreans (Hyori says, including her mother) have mentioned how “ugly” he is likening the couple to “beauty and the beast” etc. but I like how the guy looks. He looks individual and unlike some Korean *Hallyu* actors, looks like he is actually a man with an interesting personality and more than two brain cells.
Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Lee – she looks absolutely beautiful – I see she was wearing a flower tiara (though my flower tiara was prettier)
P.S. Interesting, I did not know that Lee Sangsun was part of the Verandah Project which is actually a duo with 김동률 Kim Dongryul (part of another duo 전람회 Exhibition)- a big favourite of mine when I was growing up. Here is Kim Dongryul’s solo song 염원. for those who want to have a listen. All his other songs also sound of a very Korean sentiment.
