堺雅人&菅野美穂、“大奥婚”! 電撃ゴールイン

What is the meaning of 大奥婚? I know 大奥 and 婚 by themselves, but not together. I checked Space ALC website, but no results. Google search mostly pointed to this news, and other search engines were no help.

    There was a TV drama called 大奥 in the recent past. 堺雅人 was the lead. Probably related to that.

    Whatever 大奥 refers to, 婚 is just short for 結婚.

  • So its like a contraction for 大奥 and 結婚, based on the fact they were both in the recent movie 「大奥 永遠」? Not sure why that didn't occur to me since I saw the movie recently.
