Rux vocalist Won Jong-hee is getting married this afternoon, and to celebrate the occasion he’s throwing a big ol’ bash at Uniqlo-AX this evening (April 20). Rux, Crying Nut, No Brain, Galaxy Express, and Gogo Star will all play as part of the wedding party.
Won and his bride, an illustrator who goes by the name Senan3, will actually be holding their wedding ceremony at the large Uniqlo-AX concert hall, and then everyone will be working to get things set up for the post-nuptials gig.
“One of my favorite songs from Rux is ‘Our Life, Our Stage,’” says Won. “Anyone can put their life on a stage. And for Rux, we started our lives on a stage and we’ll end our lives on a stage. So I thought why not get married on a stage too. So we decided to throw our wedding at AX hall. After we chose to have our wedding on the venue’s big stage, we had to decide on some wedding singers for the wedding reception. So we said, ‘F#ck it! Let’s just have a big punk rock show instead.’”
The bill for the wedding show is filled with bands that Rux has been closely linked to for a long time.
“Crying Nut and No Brain were the two bands that started the Korean punk scene with Rux back in early 1996,” says Won. “Ju-hyun from Galaxy Express played bass in Rux for about five years, and Tae-Sun from Gogo Star used to play bass with us as well. All those bands mean a lot to us, and I’m happy they could be a part of my wedding celebrations.”
The Ruckus Wedding concert takes place at Uniqlo-AX on Saturday, April 20. The show starts at 6 pm and tickets are 10,000 won.
