Update, 4/1: More details of the first big celebrity wedding in 2018 have been revealed. Taeyang and Min Hyorin are set to be wed early this February. 3 February to be exact! The two stars’ management agencies have released official statements regarding the wedding. The two will be holding a small traditional church wedding ceremony with only close friends and family attending. Their wedding reception will take place at Paradise City in Incheon with their close acquaintances.
What’s more, it looks like the newlyweds won’t be able to celebrate their matrimony with a honeymoon due to their hectic and clashing work schedules. Which is a real shame to hear but nevertheless, it’s understandable considering their demanding careers. The wedding is bound to be a star-studded event, but it will be a closed-door, private event as per the couple’s request. We are hoping that they will be releasing official wedding photos because how cute will they look?!
Hyorin shares her potential wedding dress with this post on Instagram,
She looks every bit like a glowing bride! Congratulations to the couple yet again!

안녕하세요. 태양입니다. 오늘 제 인생에 있어 가장 중요하고 행복한 약속을 여러분들께 알리려고 합니다. 4년이라는 오랜시간동안 늘 한결같이 제 곁을 지켜준 민효린씨와 앞으로의 여생을 함께 하기로 맹세했습니다. 힘들 때나 좋을 때나 언제나 변치않고 저를 믿어준 사람이기에 이제는 그녀와 함께 아름다운 가정을 꾸미고 싶습니다. 그동안 서로 마주보며 다져온 사랑을, 앞으로도 둘이 같이 한곳을 바라보며 걸어가겠습니다. 저를 가족처럼 아껴준 모든 팬분들과 빅뱅 멤버들 그리고 YG 식구들, 관계자 분들 진심으로 감사드립니다. 앞으로 더욱 책임감있고 겸손한 모습으로 살아가겠습니다. 태양과 민효린 저희 두 사람이 마주할 앞 날을 축복해 주시면 감사하겠습니다. Hello everyone, this is Taeyang. Today, I want to share with you guys about the most important and joyful promise I have made in my life. I have pledged to spend the rest of my life with Min Hyorin, the one who has always stuck by me for the past four years. Through all the good times and the bad times, she has always believed in me and now I look forward to making a beautiful life together. To all the fans who always treated me as if I was family, to all of my Big Bang members, to all of my YG family, to everyone I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with and meet, I want to say THANK YOU. I will continue to live my life with responsibility and humility. My hope is that you will continue to support us and give your blessings for our future ahead as a couple.
The couple have been dating since 2015, though they flew very much under the radar. The low-key couple has been pretty, quiet and stagnant all these years so the sudden huge announcement does come with a little surprise from fans and celebrities alike. If the song “Bang Bang Bang” suddenly comes to mind, get that track out of your head because their labels have nipped rumours in the bud by saying that it is not a shot gun wedding.
YG Entertainment and Hyorin’s label confirmed the news that the couple is preparing to wed and reveals that they are planning to walk down the aisle very soon, in February 2018, before Tae Yang’s enlistment. Just like Singapore’s National Service, South Korean men have to serve their nation and the couple are planning to say “I do” before then.
Insiders have also divulged that they are planning a smaller, more intimate wedding rather than a grand one. Typical of most South Korean A-list celebrities, so there’s no surprise there. Looks like the first quarter of 2018 will see many celebrity weddings and we can’t be any more excited!
Congratulations to the happy couple!
