Min Sun-ye, leader of popular K-pop girl group Wonder Girls , married her boyfriend of two years on Saturday at Lotte Hotel in downtown Seoul.The Korea Herald reported that the 23-year-old singer married James Park, a Korean-Canadian missionary, on the day without disclosing the marital ceremony. The pair met two years ago while volunteering in earthquake-stricken Haiti."Today is a very happy but at the same time a nerve-breaking day for me," the bride said at a press conference held before the nuptials. When asked whether she would like to share a word with other girl-group members about marriage and life beyond showbiz, she said, "There are many conditions in living a life. But I hope people wouldn't change the core part of their life over external issues. Marriage is another choice I have made. I would like to congratulate many other female stars in advance for their marriages to come."The ceremony was hosted by Jo Kwon, member of boy band 2AM and Min's friend of 12 years, and a Protestant minister married the couple. The wedding was a star-studded event with fellow Wonder Girls Yu-bin, So-hee, Ye-eun and Hye-lim; Seo-hyun , Tiffany , Yoon-a and Soo-young from Girls' Generation ; Jo Kwon, Seu-long, Chang-min and Jin-woon from 2AM; producer Park Jin-young and others. Min and Park are taking their honeymoon in the Maldives and will move to Canada. "I don't know when I will be back as Wonder Girls, but singing will be a lifetime thing for me," she said.
