Following the departure of pioneer couples Andy, Solbi and Alex, Shin Ae from MBC star wedding variety We Got Married recently, it was revealed today that the much-loved Ssangchu (Lettuce) Couple would also be leaving the program soon. Many viewers and fans have expressed their regrets at this.
Kim Hyun Joong and Hwang Bo have actually completed their final outdoor shoot at Jeju Island at end-October. According to the We Got Married production team, Hyun Joong and Hwang Bo will be having a vacation at Hallasan (Mount Halla) in Jeju Island and this will be their second farewell trip. Although they couldn’t reveal the outcome, they did say that it was a happy ending.
We Got Married PD In Jung Ah revealed, “Because of his busy filming schedule for Boys Before Flowers, Hyun Joong has no choice but to exit We Got Married. Their final episode will be shown in mid-December. In contrast with the Alshin couple, they decided on a farewell trip to end their stint.”
As a make-believe couple with Hwang Bo who was older than him, they have won lots of popularity thanks to their excellent chemistry with each other. Hyun Joong’s potrayal of a kid groom who is sometimes cute, comical, meticulous, charismatic, etc has seen him receive lots of love from viewers.
Kim Hyun Joong is currently filming for KBS Boys Before Flowers, playing the role of Yoon Ji Hoo (Rui Hanazawa). As opposed to the original adapation, he will have a meatier role. It is scheduled for broadcast in December.
This means that the Ant Couple (Crown J and Seo In Young) plus the pest (Jung Hyung Don) are the remaining pioneers. “A new couple is currently being scouted and will be revealed in December”, said In Jung Ah PD.
