T-ara Jiyeon and professional baseball player Hwang Jae Gyun got married 10 months after the announcement of their marriage. The groom’s surprise event for the bride is a hot topic.
On Dec 10th, Hwang Jae Gyun and Jiyeon held their wedding at the Shilla Hotel in Jangchung-dong, Seoul. At the entrance to the wedding hall, singer IU, T-ara Ham Eun Jung, Ryu Hyun Jin (Toronto Blue Jays), commentator Yoo Hee Kwan, Kang Baek Ho (KT), Oh Seung Hwan (Samsung)… were seen.
Hwang Jae Gyun and Jiyeon’s wedding, which was unveiled through guests’ SNS, had a pleasant atmosphere. Han Hye Yeon congratulated, “Jae Gyun~~ Live happily with your pretty bride~~ Your march Final Count Down is really…” In the released video, Hwang Jae Gyun, who could not hide his happy smile, entered dignifiedly in line with the march. Jiyeon appeared holding her father’s hand. Hyomin also posted a video of Jiyeon’s entrance and said, “I love you.”
The congratulatory song drew attention even before the wedding as it was reported that it would be performed by Jiyeon’s best friend, IU. Jiyeon and IU became friends after appearing together in SBS TV’s entertainment program “Heroes” from 2010 to 2011. During that time, they showed off their friendship in various entertainment programs. Recently, Jiyeon attended IU’s concert with Hwang Jae Gyun and cheered for her best friend.
However, on this day, what drew more attention than IU’s congratulatory performance was the groom Hwang Jae Gyun’s performance. In the video released by Hyomin, Hwang Jae Gyun transformed into Michael Jackson and showed off his dancing skills, while performing T-ara’s hit song “Bo Peep Bo Peep”. Hwang Jae Gyun received a lot of cheers for his wonderful skit for the bride.
Meanwhile, Hwang Jae Gyun and Jiyeon developed into a romantic relationship after getting to know each other through an acquaintance at the end of 2021. After that, they officially announced their marriage in December through handwritten letters last February. At that time, Jiyeon said, “I met my boyfriend through an acquaintance last year, and have developed good feelings for him. I’m getting married next winter to a man who is like the gift of my life, who always takes care of me first, appreciates me and tells me what happiness is. I will live a peaceful and happy life with a reliable boyfriend who is steady and gives me a shoulder to lean on.”
Hwang Jae Gyun confessed, “I decided to marry a friend who held me firmly and helped me a lot just with her existence by my side when I was suffering a hard time last year. It may be a little sudden, but the reason I’m saying this is because I think articles about my romantic relationship or wedding would create a little confusion for my team KT, which is running hard with one goal of a victory, during the season. I think I should announce it before the start of the season, so I wrote this letter. I will continue to love her until our wedding and even after the wedding.”
