Pulling out the stops for a celebrity wedding


Lee Boo-jin, a senior vice president of Hotel Shilla, will be deeply involved in the upcoming wedding of Korea's most famous celebrity couple, actor Jang Dong-gun and actress Ko So-young, according to Jang's agency yesterday.

As Lee is the eldest daughter of Samsung Electronics Chairman Lee Kun-hee, and a senior vice president of both Samsung Everland and Hotel Shilla, she's a heavyweight within the Samsung family.

According to Jang's management agency AM Entertainment, Lee is going to take part in floral decoration of the wedding, as she is a friend of Ko’s. A person close to Ko also mentioned that Ko and Lee have maintained a close relationship for a long time.

Lee has apparently recruited renowned Paris-based florist Jeff Leatham to oversee special art direction for the wedding. Leatham had previously conjured up the decor for the wedding of Hollywood actress Eva Longoria-Parker.

With just 500 of their closest friends in attendance, Jang and Ko will tie the knot at Hotel Shilla in central Seoul on May 2. Ko will wear 'Oscar de la Renta' by Soyoo as her wedding dress, and Jang's tuxedo will be a Tom Ford. The wedding rings are by Chopard.
