      Former German chancellor Gerhard Schröder married his Korean partner Kim So-yeon at a luxury hotel in Berlin, Germany on Friday.

      The couple plan another party at the Grand Hyatt in Seoul on Oct. 28.

      They met at a forum in 2015, where Kim was his interpreter, and already registered their marriage in Korea in May this year.

      They will spend their honeymoon in the former East Germany and in Korea, visiting the traditional village of Andong and the historic city of Gyeongju, both in North Gyeongsang Province.

      Schröder (74) has been married four times before and Kim (48) once.
