Korean-born Steven Yeun, (actual name, Yeun Sang-yeop) married his long-time girlfriend Joana Pak at the Paramour Estate in Los Angeles, Ca. in the presence of friends and his family members, with some of his “Walking Dead” co-stars also there to witness the wedding and congratulate the couple. Moreover, the occasion served as a great platform for the reunion of the “Walking Dead” stars – well, most of them.
Both Steven and Joanna, despite their long relationship, had tried to keep it as private as possible but the prying eyes of the media and fans cannot be avoided for too long, and finally the news was out in the open, more so because of Joana’s frequent references to the actor on her Instagram account. Ever since the media has been trying to make a story out of it; however, all speculations were put to rest with their wedding on December3, 2016.
Yeun, now a Korean-American actor, was born in Seoul, Korea, and has a relatively long acting career behind him. However, he is most popularly known for playing the character Glenn Rhee in the AMS hit television horror drama, “Walking Dead.” His girlfriend of many years Joana Pak, now his wife Mrs. Joana Pak Yeun (if she prefers to be called by her married name) is a professional photographer.
The wedding was a close-knit, exclusive affair, with family, friends and few celebrities attending the ceremony. Among the guests, including his former co-stars, were names like Norman Reedus, Andrew Lincoln, Melissa McBride, Alanna Masterson, Sarah Wayne Callies, Chandler Riggs, Emma Bell, and Sarah Wayne Callies along with his family and close buddies.
Some of the attendees, including relatives, posted a few of the wedding pictures on social sites.
Joana’s sister, Kayce Pak, shared a picture of the married couple on Instagram, Steven Yeun dressed in traditional Korean apparel and this is what she wrote, “Getting to celebrate the love between these two, last night, along with all their friends and family was so beautiful and special!! ‘This whole week has been an awesome, family-filled, fun time and it’s been so great! (We’ve also gained a brother-in-law from it!) #loveyouguys #pakpack.”
A family member, Ray Anne Chung uploaded a retro black and white picture of the bride and groom’s first kiss as husband and wife and wrote: “So much love and joy in one space. Love you Jo and Steven,” Coming back to Steven Yeun’s acting career, the role of Glen Rhee, a pizza delivery boy in the popular AMS show “Walking Dead” was one of the most liked characters by the viewers.
His role in the series did not go beyond season seven, as he dies a gruesome death at the hands of Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. The brutal death of Glenn Rhee, one of the most lovable characters by the viewers of the show, came as a shocking surprise to them.
However, his role as Glenn Rhee has earned him a huge fan following who are sure to be on the lookout for his future acting ventures. For the time being his priority is, or should be, on the long-awaited marital bliss.
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Yeun! May you have a long and blissful married life.
