Creating one of the sexiest and powerful star couples in Korean history, Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung recently announced their marriage plans. With these names, one can expect their wedding ceremony to be as grand and high-wattage as the celebrities themselves - but just how expensive and elegant will their wedding be?

The latest episode of 'Entertainment Relay' attempted to answer these questions. Consulting with a wedding planner, they found out that, well, it won't be cheap.


The wedding planner predicted that the event will be one of the most expensive to date. "The food will cost over 100,000 won per plate [approx. $88 dollars], and the rental fee for the location may run up to 22 million won [approx. $20,000 dollars]," she said. "Also, the costs will change depending on the number of guests. In total, we predict that the wedding will cost approximately 120 million won [$105,000 dollars]."


That's a lot of money. Is this going overboard or just normal celebrity spending?

This is the normal spending amount for anyone who is getting married. Weddings are expensive...

Normal? Average wedding cost is $25,000 not $105,000. I would say $80,000 is a huge difference, like 2 years worth of salary for average American worker.

that isn't much on a wedding, I seen people who spend way more than that. now if he gets some of his american actors to go to his wedding like "the rock" or "Bruce Willis" to go to his wedding now that would be awesome.....

Remember that while $105,000 doesn't seem like much in Western money, it's ₩120,000,000 in Korea. And ₩100,000 per plate? This is in a country where good restaurant food is like ₩10,000 per dish...

Basically, compared to a standard Korean wedding, theirs is expensive.

Tbh, I expected them to spend so much more considering how big they are in terms of status! I work in the wedding industry and there are many people who spend around that price for a wedding and are definitely not celebrities. $88 per pax for food is pretty standard isn't it? As the article said, it really depends on the number of guests who are attending so in other words, their wedding will be really expensive because of the number of people they know and are inviting. But if i'm not wrong, koreans have the culture of giving money when attending moneys so they will get back most of their money anyway (not that they really needed it).

I thought the same thing. I thought it would be like 1million dollars. There are some regular or upper class weddings that are 100,000 dollars and more.

just because they expect it to expensive doesn't mean it will be unless they say it

there has been many top known celebrities who have a lot of money and yet they choose to have a small ceremony with just a few close friends and family

The whole relationship between the two still hasn't sunk into me.. like damn when ever I see a news article regarding their wedding plans I'm like "wait this isn't a drama right? When and how did these two hook up??"

Why? It is not like they are cousins just because they have the same last name.

lol, do you KNOW how many people with surname "Lee" there are in Korea? The chances are pretty high they would not be related and able to marry eachother.

They changed the law a while back so that even if they have the same last name if they were from different branches of the family of the last name, it was acceptable. But people do still try to avoid marrying people with the same last name

100k for a wedding is not all that much tbh. And they are celebrities too with very wide circle of friends. The weddings in my family, cost around 60~100k at least, and it's only average.

umm that is not overboard at all... for viet wedding its like 8 courses that a table shares and for my sister the restaurant alone cost her like 40k the wedding itself was around 60k.... and it wasn't that big of a wedding 106k for a celebrity wedding is not overboard at all. maybe its a lot for an average household to spend for a wedding but you gotta remember they have the money for it and its a once in a lifetime thing so at least make it memorable...

Normal celeb spending. They didn't go overboard at all.
