A mega-wattage celebrity couple has been born, after national heartthrob Jang Dong-gun and actress Ko So-young tied the knot Sunday.

The couple, both 38, wed at the Shilla Hotel in a private ceremony where about 500 family, relatives and friends were invited.

High-profile guests included movie stars Lee Byung-hun, Jung Woo-sung, Song Seung-hun and Kwon Sang-woo and his wife Son Tae-young. Other stars that made the wedding seem like a red carpet event were singers Rain and Lee Jung-hyun, and actors So Ji-sup, Synn Mina and Lee Jung-jae.

Jang and Ko appeared before the press for a short photo session. Scores of reporters and fans ― including over 200 from Japan ― were also seen lining up to get a glimpse of the stars hours ahead of the event at the hotel in Jangchung-dong, Seoul.

“The public attention we attracted was at times pleasant and other times burdensome, but today I am only thankful,” said the groom. “I don’t know if it’s a boy or girl yet, but personally it would be nice to have a daughter who looks like Ko So-young.”

Ko is already three months pregnant, Jang’s management agency AM Entertainment has said. “Thank you. We will try our best to have a happy life,” added the mother-to-be.

Lee O-yong, former culture minister and renowned author, officiated at the marriage. He is the father of Lee Sng-moo, who directed Jang’s Hollywood debut piece “The Warrior’s Way.”
