South Korean transgender beauty Harisu, 32, tied the knot in Seoul Saturday with her boyfriend singer, 27-year-old rap singer Micky Chung, pledging to become a “sexy and caring” wife. She has been dating the singer since 2005 after they met online.

The marriage ceremony was carried out by Kim Suk-Kwon, a surgeon who performed Harisu’s male-to-female sex reassignment surgery.

“I’ll become a housewife who is cooking well, sexy and caring,” a beaming Harisu told journalists before the wedding ceremony. “We originally planned to adopt 10 children but decided to settle for only four kids because of the objections from our parents,” she said

In December 2002, the Incheon District Court recognized her as legally female and she changed her official name to Lee Kyung-Eun.
