S. Korea transsexual singer ties the knot


Seoul, (Reuters) – A South Korean transsexual entertainer, whose sex change helped the country to change its family registry laws, was married on Saturday.

The 32-year-old male-to-female singer, who goes by the stage name Harisu, married her 27-year-old rapper boyfriend at a ceremony attended by many of the country’s top celebrities.

The surgeon who performed Harisu’s sex change operation in 1995 acted as the ceremonial head of the wedding. The couple will spend their honeymoon in Koh Samui, Thailand.

“I will become a wife who cooks well and is sweet, sexy and like a friend,” Harisu told a news conference before the wedding. “We will adopt two boys and two girls.”
