Japanese fans of South Korean actor Bae Yong-Joon holding umbrellas wait on a side of the road leading to the wedding hall to get a glimpse of their favorite star before Bae's wedding ceremony at a hotel in Seoul on July 27, 2015.

"Winter Sonata" actor Bae Yong-joon footed the dinner bill for some 200 of his fans who visited the hotel where his wedding took place Monday, local reports said Tuesday.

Bae married actress Park Soo-jin at the Sheraton Grande Walkerhill hotel in a private ceremony attended only by family and close friends.

About 200 fans, many of whom flew from Japan, lined up in front of the hotel to catch a glimpse of the 43-year-old star and congratulate him on his nuptials.

According to the reports, Bae's company Keyeast Entertainment provided the fans with a meal coupon that could be used at the hotel's Korean restaurant and a canned coffee. They suggested the gifts would have cost the actor around 10 million won (S$11,727 ).

Bae, a first-generation hallyu star who rose to stardom in Japan in the early 2000s, is one of the richest celebrities in Korea. As the largest shareholder of Keyeast, his equity holdings in the firm are valued at roughly 107 billion won.
