What Did Bae Yong Joon And Park Soo Jin Spend On Their Wedding?
The wedding of Bae Yong Joon and Park Soo Jin may have been small by celebrity standards but that does not mean it was inexpensive. Reports have recently been released in Korean media outlets on the price of the wedding dress, the car that the couple drove to the wedding and the honeymoon home they will live in.
According to the Korean news outlet Newsen, Park Soo Jin's wedding dress cost thousands of dollars and came from the same celebrity designer that designed wedding dresses for Lee Min Jung and Jun Ji Hyun. Often celebrities will wear more than ne wedding dress, choosing one for the wedding photos and another for the actual ceremony.

The couple rented the Aston House at the Seoul Sheraton Grande Walkerhill hotel. Fans who waited outside the hotel for a glimpse of the Hallyu star and his bride did not get one as he and other celebrities guests such as Kim Soo Hyun and Song Seung Hoon arrived by car.
The car that Bae and his bride arrived in was reported to be expensive. He owns a Mercedes-Benz Maybach 62S, which is worth about $500,000, although he prefers to be driven to events rather than drive himself. It isn't the most expensive car in the world but it is the most expensive car made by Mercedes-Benz.
While the couple rented the Aston House for their wedding, the location of the photo shoot was his home, which is estimated to be worth about $8.8 million. He bought the home six years ago for about $5.5 million but has extensively remodeled it. It is reported to be the highest priced single family home owned by a celebrity in Korea. The basement alone is almost 4,000 square feet, according to the Korean media outlet Star News.
The couple plan to spend their honeymoon at the South Cape Spa and Suites Golf Resort, as they both like to play golf and it was one of the hobbies that brought them closer. They will stay at the most expensive and the only private villa in the resort. According to the Korea Herald, the villas cost between 4 and 7.5 million dollars to build. Each villa is furnished with top-notch sound systems and luxurious carpets and furniture. Their villa is said to have the best scenery of any villa at resort.
The "Winter Sonata" star also spent money rewarding his fans for their loyalty. His company KeyEast provided fans that lined up outside the wedding hotel with free meal coupons and coffee at a total cost of $10,000.
But then Bae Yong Joon can afford it all. As the biggest shareholder of Key East Entertainment, his assets are valued at over $100 million.
