Idol singers Moon Hee-joon, Soyul tie knot

SEOUL, Feb. 12 (Yonhap) -- Moon Hee-joon of first-generation K-pop boy band H.O.T. and Soyul of girl group Crayon Pop tied the knot at a hotel wedding attended by family and friends on Sunday.

The couple wed at the upscale Hotel Shilla in Seoul as members of their respective bands congratulated them with songs and poems. Other top stars in attendance included members of boy band Shinhwa, girl group Sistar and comedian Yoo Jae-suk.

In a press conference before the ceremony, the couple confessed they couldn't sleep the night before out of nervousness.

"(Hee-joon) takes care of me even in the smallest ways," Soyul said in response to a question about what drew her to her husband. "He also looks at me with warmth and his innocent smile attracted me."

   Moon said he, too, was attracted by his wife's smile and the way she tried to make him laugh.

Soyul revealed Moon proposed to her on a yacht.

"I cried my eyes out as I felt his sincerity and warmth. I was really grateful," she said.

Moon said the two get excited when talking about music.

"At first I thought she liked my music because we were dating, but she turned out to know all of my songs by heart. So I started listening to Crayon Pop's songs a lot," he said.

Soyul pledged to become a role model couple, saying she hopes they will love each other with sincerity and respect for each other.

Moon, 38, and Soyul, 25, met two years ago through work and began dating in April.
