Kim Jung Hwa, who recently played Yoon Yi Seol in the romantic comedy "Dating Agency: Cyrano," has released some beautiful pre-wedding photos. This month she will marry Christian contemporary music producer and pastor Yoo Eun Sung.
Unlike some of the summer's bigger and splashier celebrity nuptials Kim's wedding will take place on August 24 in a private church ceremony in Seoul. The press is not invited.
During the pre-wedding shoot, the actress wore several lovely wedding dresses ranging from classic to contemporary styles. In one of the photos, Kim looked like an elegant ballerina in "Swan Lake," while in another, she posed among several young flower girls. In every setting, she looked stunning.
Kim Jung Hwa, 30, and her husband, Yoo, Eun Sang, 36, dated for eight months before deciding to marry this past April.
The couple met when they both served as honorary ambassadors for Korea Food for the Hungry International. They grew closer when he composed a song for her. The song, "Hello Agnes" was named for the essay book that Kim wrote on her experiences caring for a Ugandan child named Agnes.
The essay book contained stories about the challenges Kim Jung Hwa experienced as an actress, the pain she felt following the death of her mother and the joy she experienced while helping others. It also included descriptions of her foster child, who has AIDS, and told the story of how they became closer. Royalties from the book were donated to help Agnes and other children living with AIDS in Africa.
Kim then wrote the lyrics for Yoo Eun Sung's musical composition. She recorded a single of their combined music and lyrics, which was released last November.
"Their relationship is all the more previous as they met through their daughter Agnes, who brought a miracle to Jung Hwa's life and they have shared that miracle," said a press released from S.A.L.T. Entertainment, announcing her wedding. "We hope that you send many blessings and love to Kim Jung Hwa′s new start with her partner, as they walk not alone, but together for the rest of their lives."
The actress debuted in the Lee Seung Hwan music video "You and You." In "Dating Agency: Cyrano" she played the first love of the hero Seo Byung Hoon, the love he can't forget. Before that she also played Seol Ji in "King Gwanggeto" and as Kim Joo Hee in "Ugly Cake."
