Actor Song Il-guk Marries Judge


Actor Song Il-guk (37) and a 32-year-old Busan High Court Judge identified only by her family name "Jung" held a private wedding away from the media spotlight at the Sheraton Walkerhill Hotel in Seoul on March 15.

Officiated by the President of Chung-Ang University Park Beom-hoon, the traditional Korean-style wedding ceremony was attended by one thousand guests. Jazz artist Yoon Hee-jeong and singer Park Ae-ri from the National Changgeuk Company of Korea performed nuptial songs for the bride and groom.

The bride passed the bar exam while doing the doctorate course in the code of civil procedure at Seoul National University's Graduate School of Law. She finished her mandatory training at the Judicial Research and Training Institute in January and became appointed as a Busan High Court Judge in February. Song and Jung were introduced by a mutual friend. They tied the knot after two years of dating.

Song's acquaintances said the actor did not want to make the wedding a public affair, as the bride was not a public personality like himself.

After returning from their honeymoon, the newlyweds plan to settle down in Busan.

Song is the son of veteran actress Kim Eul-dong. He made his acting debut on MBC TV in 1998 and has since become a household name by starring in numerous successful TV shows including 'Terms of Endearment,' 'Emperor of the Sea' and 'Jumong.' His most recent appearance was on 'Lobbyist' on SBS TV.

song ll-guk:
i wander as a lonely soul
searching for my romeo
for i am ur juliet
we might have never met
but i know my soul and your
is meant to be
because when i lay in my bed at night
and close my eyes i only see your face
and then i know that we are meant to be together....
In this life we might not be together
but i know that the coming reincarnations
we will be together
as 2 bodies and 1 soul....

love:
me
