Tang Wei and her Korean director boyfriend Kim Tae-Yong earlier in the month issued a statement to announce their marriage and a wedding ceremony this Autumn. Yesterday afternoon however Mainland media relayed Korean media coverage that claimed Tang Wei and Kim Tae-Yong held a dress wedding on a farm on July 13 in Sweden.
Yesterday Tang Wei's Mainland company responded officially to the wedding news and said that they as filmmakers held a last minute small wedding on a Bergman pilgrimage. The official wedding ceremony will still take place in Autumn. "Friends: about the news that everyone is concerned with today, our response is as followed: 1. The trip of Faro, Sweden could be said as Tang Wei's pilgrimage to film master Ingmar Bergman. Bergman's House has always been a place that she has dreamed about visiting. Director Kim Tae-Yong also respected Bergman. After arriving there, they like all filmmakers were excited and emotional. To commemorate this sacred journey they in the last minute decided to hold a small wedding that belonged to the two of them according to local traditions at Bergman's House. The wedding took place on July 12 and the location was Bergman's House on Faro, Sweden. This was a memory with special meaning that they gave themselves as filmmakers. 2. In Autumn they will have an official wedding that the families will participate in. 3. Today Tang Wei has arrived in Australia to work on a commercial. She is in a wheelchair because her earlier injury still has not healed. Thank you again everyone for your concern."
