Korean actress Kim Yun-jin married movie producer in a surprise wedding ceremony in Hawaii today, according to her agency Zion Entertainment.
An official at Zion told Asia Economic Daily over the phone Monday that the actress "will hold a small wedding with only the bride and groom's immediate family in attendance."
The nuptials reportedly took place on a privately owned beach this morning around 8 a.m. (Seoul time) and the "Lost" actress did not even wear a wedding dress.
Kim and her husband, known only by last name Park, were said to have first met in 2002 as manager and client and grew close while Kim was working on her 2007 book [tentatively titled in English] "Kim Yun-jin's Hollywood Story."
"My husband is a humorous and thoughtful person," the 37-year-old actress was quoted as saying. "I wanted to make once-in-a-lifetime memories quietly and start the beginning of a new life in Hawaii where we started dating."
The newlyweds will stay in Hawaii for their honeymoon and come to Korea next month, when Kim will begin future projects in the country. Kim is currently shooting the last season of the ABC hit series "Lost".
Kim, who grew up in Staten Island, New York, rose to fame in 1999 when she starred in Korea's first blockbuster film "Swiri" as a North Korean spy.
In 2004, she became the first South Korean actress to make a breakthrough into the U.S. entertainment industry when she was cast as one of the main characters in the Emmy Award-winning drama "Lost."
