The inevitable truth has finally happened, Alex and Shin Ae couple are officially off the screen following Episode 8 of MBC “We Got Married” shown today.
Eighteen news articles about Alex and Shin Ae leaving the show has surfaced in the aftermath of today’s episode and this must really been an indication of how much they have bought to the program on the whole. Whether you like them or dislike them, they were very much the epitome of a model romantic couple.
With Shin Ae the only one not knowing a thing about him leaving the show, Alex brings her to the recording studio upon her request. They play the piano together which was really sweet. Then they proceeded to sing a duet with Alex prompting Shin Ae who was apprehensive but did it with his encouragement.
With Shin Ae in the control room, Alex proceeds to sing Flowerpot by Loveholic as a farewell song. Didn’t fancy this song very much initially but now I do and will remember Alex and Shin Ae when I listen to this. The lyrics just describes them perfectly.

After the song, Alex asks Shin Ae to pick up a heart-shaped flowerpot with her expecting some sort of romantic surprise to follow. But he drops a bombshell saying that he has to leave the show and tells her to take good care of the potted plant and wait for his return. Shin Ae turned from being surprised to almost tearing state but she managed to hold it in. They ended with a warm embrace although you feel for Shin Ae who has to endure another “break-up”.
To sum it up, it has been a wonderful experience watching Alex and Shin Ae on-screen and no matter what happens in future, hope that they will remain in contact with each other. Do hope that they come back in future if possible.
