Actress Tang Wei and husband Kim Tae Yong released their wedding photos yesterday after a simple ceremony held in Sweden
Following their simple and low profile wedding held in Sweden last month, Chinese actress and South Korean director Kim Tae Yong released their wedding photos yesterday through a Hong Kong public relations company on Weibo.
The post on Weibo said: 'We are honoured that Tang Wei and Kim Tae Yong have entrusted us to announce this good news. The two officially became man and wife days ago under the witness of both their parents. They will now face their new journey in life. We wish this couple joy and happiness, and we thank all who have been caring for and supporting Tang Wei.'
They have also given out wedding cakes in a three-layered box printed with their English names. It was accompanied by a card with the message, 'Love made our world complete, thank you for your blessings.'
Tang Wei and Tae Yong are said to hold an official ceremony this fall and will only invite their relatives.
The two, who have been dating since last October, first announced marriage plans early last month and drew talks about Tang Wei being a third party and even pregnant.
The rumours of a shot-gun marriage were dispelled when she was slated for promotional activities for new drama The Golden Era and discussions for new shows.
Jaycee Chan, the only son of Hong Kong star Jackie Chan, found more than 100 grams of marijuana in Jaycee's possession during a raid.
The process, which was recorded on video, saw the 31-year-old facing the interrogation unprepared and trembling while holding a box of marijuana.
Jackie has reportedly halted his activities and headed to Beijing yesterday to handle this matter. Yesterday, CCTV also released the news that Jaycee has admitted to using drugs for the past eight years.
If he is convicted of drug possession, he may face a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.
In addition, the mansion which Jackie had gifted Jaycee caught the eyes of many in the video, as it was the first time the interior of the building was exposed.
Located at Dongzhimen, Beijing, the eight-storey infrastructure was designed by a famous Taiwanese interior designer Qiu Deguang and is now worth NT$800million (approximately S$33.8million), four times more its original value when Jackie first purchased the first floor in 2006.

After her relationship with her former lesbian lover Wang Ziqi was exposed at the beginning of the year, Hong Kong actress Sire Ma reportedly has not received any new work opportunities. Her financial woes worsened when she filed lawsuits against seven companies under Next Media Limited, for exposing a video clip which showed her making steamy dance moves in racy lingerie last month.
Sire made her first public appearance at a fashion event last Thursday, 15 days after the video was first leaked. Even though she maintained a professional attitude by smiling widely during the event, the 27-year-old broke down in tears while sharing about her troubles.
Due to the lack of income, Sire heavily depended on her family, who has been financing the litigation costs for the lawsuits. The actress has also allegedly spent millions of Hong Kong dollars to hire veteran lawyer Huang Wen Jie. In order to pay off her debts, Sire plans to sell her apartment in Clear Water Bay Peninsula and withdraw from the limelight, after wrapping up work on hand.
While speaking to reporters, Sire revealed that she sunk into depression earlier this year. Fortunately, she erased the thoughts of taking her own life, thanks to the support from her family and anti-depressant pills.
Heart-broken by Ziqi's accusations that the videos were taken and leaked by Sire, the latter said: 'I have to bear the consequences for the disastrous and destructive results of loving the wrong person.'

The Taiwanese singer revealed that she once prayed to 'God of Marriage' before her debut
Mandopop star Jolin Tsai's mother was recently reported to have offered prayers at a fox fairy temple for the singer to have a smooth love life. While speaking to the media at an event on Monday, Jolin commented on the reports, saying, 'This is hilarious. My fans are my fox fairies.'
However, the 33-year-old let on that she once prayed to the 'God of Marriage' before her showbiz debut. 'I stopped praying for relationship matters after entering the industry. I have a smooth-sailing career and I don't have any special wish for my love life,' she added.
Also, Jolin did not seem to be affected by the string of marriage news in showbiz, including rumours of her ex-beau Jay Chou's impending wedding. Although she has been in a stable relationship with model Vivian Dawson for four years, the singer does not intend to walk down the aisle yet.
When asked on her dream wedding, Jolin admitted that she 'has not considered that much'.

After much talk and conflict, JYJ will be participating at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games.
According to C-JeS Entertainment on August 20, JYJ will attend the Opening Ceremony of the 2014 Incheon Asian Games on September 19 at the Incheon Asiad Main Stadium, where the members will sing the Asian Games official song, Only One.
“When JYJ was anointed as honorary ambassadors, we were promised that JYJ would perform at both the opening and closing ceremonies, but at the end of discussions, we will only be singing one song before the finale of the opening ceremony.
JYJ has fulfilled all duties as the honorary ambassadors, recording the song and participating in the music videos and commercials, as well as promotions. However, in July, the Incheon Asian Games committee revealed a list of performers for the Opening and Closing ceremonies and JYJ was not mentioned, causing C-JeS Entertainment to release a statement asking for the committee to be fair.
