Fans not left out at Bae's wedding
WINTER Sonata actor Bae Yong Joon spent about 10 million won (S$12,000) to take care of fans who visited the hotel where his wedding took place.
Bae, 42, married actress Park Soo Jin, 29, at Sheraton Grande Walkerhill Hotel on Monday at 6pm.
His fans, many of whom flew in from Japan and are middle-aged women, lined up in front of the hotel to catch a glimpse of the star and congratulate him on his high-profile, yet private, wedding.
Early yesterday morning, actor Song Seung Heon posted on his Honey Side website a photo of the newlyweds, an unidentified guest - whose face was obscured - and himself at what appeared to be the wedding reception.
"Congratulations!" wrote Song, who starred in 2000's tearjerker Autumn In My Heart.
Bae's firm, Keyeast Entertainment, provided his fans with free meal coupons and canned coffee, estimated to cost 10 million won.
Bae is the biggest shareholder of Keyeast Entertainment. His equity holdings in the firm are valued at about 107 billion won.
