Top indie stars get hitched
Kwon Jung-yeol and Kim Yun-joo from indie music duos 10cm and Oksang Dalbit tied the knot on Saturday, according to local media reports.
The ceremony was held at a wedding hall located in Samseong-dong, southern Seoul, with singer Yoon Do-hyun performing the post-nuptial song and the groom’s music partner, Yoon Cheol-jong, making a congratulatory speech.
It is said that the two lovebirds first met and built up a friendship when they appeared as guests on the radio program “Yoo Hee-yeol’s Radios in Heaven.” They went public with their relationship in June 2012.
The band 10cm, in which Kwon is a vocalist, is often called an idol of indie bands because the duo has generated a number of hits, which is not common in the indie industry.
The bride, Kim, debuted as a member of indie duo “Oksang Dalbit” in 2010. The group has gained fame among indie aficionados with their candid lyrics and modest melodies.
