The most popular variety in recent times “We Got Married” will see new faces joining the show but with no changes to the existing couples setup.
PD Kim expressed that in conjunction with the upcoming Chuseok Festival (Thanksgiving), “We Got Married” will have a Chuseok Special on 14th September which will be splitted into part 1 and 2. Especially for part 1, viewers will be introduced to the new couple who will add fresh impetus to the show.
PD Kim expressed, “In our quest for the new couple, we have met up with numerous artistes for interviews to assess their suitability. Up till now, we haven’t decided on anyone yet. If we can’t find anyone suitable, we might let Jung Hyung Don and Saori back on the show again after their split earlier.”
When asked if anyone would be exiting the show, PD Kim said, “No. This is just something we planned to complement the Chuseok Festival to choose a new couple. But we haven’t confirmed anything yet. Although the headcount (couples) is still very small, I think we want to continue with this until the end of the year.” In the early days of “We Got Married”, Jung Hyung Don and Saori exited the show after a few episodes. Following which, Lee Hwi Jae and Jo Yeo Jeong came on the show as their replacements but only lasted a few episodes as well. The other four couples have remained a constant.
With celebrities playing make-believe couples leading a married life, “We Got Married” has gained not just a wide following in Korea but also in Asia and the rest of the world. It has also been making news recently over the parenting mission that Crown J and Seo In Young got on the show.
