Actress to call Singapore elites family


Jun Ji-hyun

Actress Jun Ji-hyun will soon call Singapore’s richest family her in-laws. Jun’s brother-in-law Choi Jun-ho will walk down the aisle to the only daughter of Hong Leong Group’s founder on Oct. 20.

The ceremony will take place at the Shilla Hotel in Jangchung-dong, central Seoul.

The bride-to-be has two older brothers, and the family is famous for conducting business in hospitality, banking and export.

The founder Quek Leng Chan’s assets are estimated to be worth around $30 billion.

Meanwhile, Jun’s brother-in-law, Choi, also comes from an esteemed family as his maternal grandmother is the famed hanbok, or traditional Korean attire, designer Lee Young-hee and his mother is designer Lee Jung-woo.

Choi graduated from the University of Michigan and since 2010 has worked for Ssangyong Engineering and Construction. Previously, he has also tried his luck as an entertainer as a member of X-Large in 2001. The stint only lasted six months.
