Son Ye Jin’s mother prepared a jewelry box worth 12 million won as a wedding gift for her daughter.
Women Chosun revealed that Son Ye Jin’s biological mother bought a jewelry box at a high-end department store in Daegu in preparation for her daughter’s wedding.
The silver inlaid lacquer box that Son Ye Jin’s mother bought is a handmade product of a famous brand, recreating traditional Korean artwork in a modern style. Sophisticated and neat design, the box is worth 12 million won, not to mention the jewelry inside.
A close source revealed that because both her daughter and son-in-law are top stars, Son Ye Jin’s mother is very careful, putting a lot of heart into the dowry gift. The gift is not only of great value, but also contains her feelings on the day her daughter boarded the flower car to return to her husband’s house.
Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin’s wedding will take place in March at the Sheraton Grand Waterhill hotel, with expected guests of about 100 people including family and close friends.
In Korea, It’s unclear when gold jewelry and the cash-giving tradition here came into being. It apparently originates from the time-honored community practice of sharing labor in a give-and-take manner when holding big family events.
