Korean actors Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung in no hurry to make babies
by Diva

Lee Byung-Hun married fellow actress Korean Lee Min Jung in a glamourous wedding on Saturday. The couple are financially independent and 'not in a hurry to make babies', reported Lianhe Wanbao.

The wedding expenditure, estimated at S$210,000, was covered fully by 43-year-old Lee Byung-Hun, said the report. 

He had also reportedly purchased a new house in Seoul's affluent Cheongdam-dong district before the wedding.

But at the wedding, he was quick to declare that the couple would live with his mother after they got married, said Wanbao.

The actor also revealed that it was Lee Min Jung that had suggested staying with her mother-in-law after they got married and he was touched by her gesture.

The couple have reportedly gone on their honeymoon to Maldives on Monday morning, according to the Chinese daily.

There was previous speculation that the marriage union was a shotgun wedding, Wanbao also reported. 

In response, Lee Byung-Hun said the pair have no plans to have children at the moment.

But regardless whether they have one or two children in future, the couple would raise their children with a grateful heart, the actor said.

Top South Korean movie star Lee Byung-Hun marries


SEOUL - Top South Korean movie star Lee Byung-Hun, one of the best known faces of the "Korean Wave" of popular culture, married actress Lee Min-Jung on Saturday.

The 43-year-old, who starred in last year's blockbuster costume drama "Masquerade", told reporters the wedding was "a dream come true" shortly before tying the knot with longtime girlfriend Lee.

"There was thunder and lightning this morning. There is an old saying that thunder and lightning are a good sign for newlyweds. We will do our best to live a long, happy life", the bride said.

Lee Byung-Hun is well known as the star of a number of popular television dramas, including the spy series "Iris", as well as for his films.

His role as a swashbuckling gambler in the pan-Asian hit series "All In" has earned him a particularly devoted following in Japan.

As well as "Masquerade," which swept last year's national film awards, Lee starred in the 2000 hit "Joint Security Area" and this year he reprised his role as the villainous ninja Storm Shadow in the Hollywood action blockbuster "G.I. Joe: Retaliation".

He also features in the Hollywood action comedy "Red 2" starring Bruce Willis.

Lee Min-Jung became a household name for her supporting role in the mega-hit high-school TV drama series "Boys Over Flowers".
