Park Chi-man' wedding, 2000 visitors

Park Chi-man, the son of the president Park Chung-hee, whose marriage plans I noted last month, has now had the wedding, tells Chosun Ilbo.
As seems to be the practice with people whose weddings are going to draw a lot of attention, this was supposed to be celebrated only among family members and close friends, but in the end 2000 people turned up to congratulate the couple (or to make an appearance). The names mentioned in the article make like a list of who is who in Korean politics in the recent decades, beginning from Kim Jong-pil (founder of the Korean CIA, one of the "three Kims") and Park Tae-joon (long-time Posco chairman etc).
Another recent practice of high-profile weddings: both the bride's and groom's families refused any congratulation monies (ch'ugûigûm), and also sent back all flower wreaths except the one sent by president Roh.
