Following earlier news that Kim Hyun Joong and Hwang Bo were replacing the departing Alex and Shin Ae on popular MBC variety “We Got Married”, news came today that Jung Hyung Don and Saori couple would also be leaving the show as well. They will be replaced by Lee Hwi Jae (36) and actress Jo Yeo Jeong (27). Hyung Don and Saori will make their final appearance this weekend.
Lee Hwi Jae has been host of several programs and is widely known to be someone in the mould of Alex, dashing, slick and with good dating skills. Jo Yeo Jeong is an actress and I was impressed with her outgoing personality when she appeared in last week “Change” variety. I think they are highly likely to be earmarked to be the successor couple to Alex and Shin Ae possibly.
Jung Hyung Don and Saori had been giving a realistic portrayal initially showing how couples behaved in real life and most viewers felt that it mirrored what most of their husbands were doing. But it was never going to work out between them and many lamented that they were so incompatible and totally misfits together as it went on. It’s believed that Saori was the one that initiated the “break-up” as she was thinking of embarking on a solo singing career. She never really looked comfortable during the studio recordings.
The new couple, Hwang Bo and Kim Hyun Joong recorded their first episode on Jeju Island on 29th April and was present for the studio recording on 6th May together with Lee Hwi Jae and Jo Yeo Jeong. This explains why Saori and Jung Hyung Don was omitted from this week preview. Looks interesting isn’t it???
