Some behind stories of the situation when Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin arrived at the airport in L.A have been revealed.
On April 13th, reporter-turned-Youtuber Lee Jin-ho uploaded a video titled, “Son Ye-jin’s honeymoon in L.A… The reason why Hyun Bin looked so serious”.
In the video, Lee Jin-ho said, “Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin, who got married last month, are in the center of attention during the past few days. This time, their honeymoon in the U.S has become a hot topic. In fact, the two’s wedding ceremony, which took place on the 31st of last month, was already considered a “Wedding of the Century”. Hyun Bin’s best friend Jang Dong-gun gave a congratulatory speech and Gummy sang a wedding song. Gong Hyo-jin received Son Ye-jin’s bouquet. And above all, the way Hyun Bin looked at Son Ye-jin was so real that drew keen attention”, adding, “In addition, it is said that the wedding was held with such tight security that even managers could not enter. Moreover, the wedding hall was also decorated with colorful flowers, costing the couple more than 100 million won in wedding expenses”.
Lee Jin-ho continued, “The two then organized their newlywed house and greeted their relatives. After arranging schedules, they went on their honeymoon 11 days after their wedding”, adding, “And the two arrived at the L.A airport on the 12th. It’s already so interesting that Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin chose L.A as their honeymoon destination. The two were rumored to be dating after getting caught going shopping together at a mart in L.A in 2019, but at that time, they denied the dating rumors. Three years later, L.A became their honeymoon destination”.
He then explained why so many local fans gathered at the airport to see Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin, saying, “Visiting L.A again after 3 years, the two faced a huge crowd of local fans at the airport. It was actually a surprise. All of them were American fans. This is because the popularity of tvN’s drama “Crash Landing on You” went beyond Korea and even to the U.S”.
Regarding how the fans got to know about the couple’s arrival time at the L.A airport, Lee Jin-ho explained, “It is reported that fans just recklessly came to the airport after seeing articles and Twitter posts about the two’s departure. This also proves the deep affection they have for Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin”.
Regarding Hyun Bin asking fans to keep a distance, Lee Jin-ho explained the situation, saying, “Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin are said to actively respond to fans’ requests for autographs. But only Son Ye-jin agreed to sign autographs and take pictures with the fans. So did Hyun Bin ignore the fans’ requests? There was a behind-the-scenes story here. The two seem to have encountered a problem with the travel guide they booked in advance. They were supposed to have a guide wait for them and pick them up as soon as they landed, but the pickup was not done properly due to scheduling problems. Because of this, the two had to wait in front of the airport gate for nearly half an hour, and it turned into a fan service time for local fans.”
Lee Jin-ho added, “Hyun Bin was constantly calling somewhere and asking questions, and Son Ye-jin took the time to sign autographs for the fans. The problem was that the waiting time was unexpectedly too long, so Hyun Bin couldn’t help but get a bit sensitive. After the guide finally arrived, Hyun Bin took over the wheel and left the airport by driving himself. In Korean articles, Hyun Bin is said to look ‘serious’ and ‘keeping fans from approaching’, but in reality, he was nicely asking fans to give them space.”
Lee Jin-ho continued, “There was even an absurd request from locals passing by telling the two to take off their masks because fans were taking pictures. It was an uneasy situation for both of them. Hyun Bin seemed a little sensitive because of the messed-up schedule, but it is said that he waved at the fans several times.”
