Well-known Hally or Korean Wave star Won Bin who gained popularity for his role in the popular TV series “Autumn in My Heart,” married actress Lee Na-young on Saturday, their agency said.

The wedding was held in Won Bin’s hometown of Jeongseon, Gangwon Province, with only select family members and close friends invited, Eden9 Entertainment Co. Ltd. said in a news release.

The two have been in a relationship for years which was first officially confirmed by the agency in 2013.

“It was a small family-focused wedding,” an agency official said.

Since earning fame in the TV drama which spearheaded the so-called “Hallyu,” or the Korean Wave, the 39-year-old actor has starred in many local blockbusters including “Taegukgi” and “Mother,” directed by Bong Joon-ho. “Mother” had competed in the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.

The 36-year-old Lee made her debut as a TV commercial model and later earned a major place in the entertainment field.

The two have not appeared on the TV or the silver screen since the early 2010s except for some TV commercials.
