The district of Itaewon the couple chose as their new home is a posh and exclusive neighborhood with a lot of high-profile residents such as celebrities, ambassadors, and nouveau-riches. The residential area is detached from the high street of the town where the young come to party on Friday nights.   

Itaewon is one of the hottest neighborhood in the city of Seoul.

The bride and groom will depart to Europe for their honeymoon. No further details regarding 'where to' or 'for how long' have been disclosed. Since both Song Hye-kyo and Song Joong-ki aren’t working on any projects at the moment, it is surmised that the two will enjoy a long, leisurely trip. They will return to their home in Itaewon following the honeymoon.
