If you didn’t know, romantic model couple Alex and Shin Ae will be departing MBC “We Got Married” variety show with their last appearance on 27th April.
You can’t deny that the interaction between Alex and Shin Ae are one of the most likely pairings to actually become a real couple off-screen. Starting with relatively awkwardness since they hardly knew each other, learning more about each other through missions, you would have felt that they might really be dating if you had followed their scenes from episode one. They just felt real.
The emergence of Alex and Shin Ae has led to them being compared with another couple that was linked together and widely speculated to be dating on-screen. That famous pairing is Yoon Eun Hye and Kim Jong Kook who had a dating relationship on the famous SBS variety show, “Xman” for almost a year. And they are still romantically linked with each other off-screen through various incidents. But of course, we are only speculating since it’s not official. But everyone thinks they are made for each other anyway. There’s a comparison chart in a Korean article comparing the two pairings and translated by o-cha.

Goosebumps Index: 99.99 (side effect: whole body tickles)

Now there are conflicting articles saying that Alex and Shin Ae might or might not return after the earlier is done with his album recording. Because if MBC replaces them with someone else, how could Alex and Shin Ae return unless they cut another couple away? The future is unpredictable but all the best to the both of them for making Sundays so romantically enjoyable.
