Actress Lee Seung-yeon, 39, married a 37-year-old businessman at Sol Beach Resort in Yangyang, Gangwon Province, Friday.

The couple met two years ago through one of their friends. Her husband Kim Moon-chul is an aspiring fashion entrepreneur based in the United States.

About 400 visitors, including her close celebrity friends, blessed the wedding ceremony, which was not open to the public.

Actor Yoon Da-hoon hosted the ceremony and veteran actor Lee Soon-jae officiated.

The newly weds will take a one-week honeymoon trip to the U.S. after staying at the resort for a day.

Lee is renowned for her role in the movie ``3-Iron.'' She started her acting career after winning third place in the 1992 Miss Korea beauty pageant.

She took roles in TV soaps such as ``Our Heaven'' (1993) and ``First Love'' (1996). Lee also starred in the TV dramas ``Perfect Love'' (2003), ``Love and Ambition'' (2006) and ``Moonhee'' (2007).

Lee also debuted on film with ``Piano Man'' (1996) but won most praise for her part in ``3-Iron'' (2004), directed by Kim Ki-duk, who won the Best Director Award at the Venice International Film Festival for the movie.

Lee currently hosts a radio show ``Lee Seung-yeon's Cinetown'' on SBS and ``Style Magazine'' on the cable TV channel OnStyle. She has recently launched the fashion brand, ``About el.''
