We Got Married is now going through a revamp with Season 2 being planned for 2009 and the next big change will involve scrapping the entire studio recording and together with it, the current 4 MCs on the show, Lee Hyuk Jae, Park Myung Soo, Kang Soo Jung and Jung Hyung Don will also leave.
Starting from next week (7th December), We Got Married will not have any MCs hosting the show in a studio (means no more studio audience also) anymore. The show will focus entirely on the couples themselves (means 2 or more additional minutes, what’s the difference?). According to MBC, they hope that this change will be refreshing for viewers and also save a little on production costs. This means that the MCs appeared on the show for the last time on 30th November. Other known changes include the departure of JoongBo couple in mid-December with a new couple replacing them after they depart.
The loss of the MCs plus the studio recording where you could see the couples reaction to their segments is lamentable but it was indeed made surplus to requirements in recent weeks compared to the beginning. Jung Hyung Don will still be on We Got Married as a family member for the Ant couple segment.
There might be a runaway winner but who has been your favourite.
My Own We Got Married MC Review
Lee Hwi Jae – He was pretty ok until he was drafted into becoming a couple with Jo Yeo Jeong. After his undocumented “divorce”, became a MC again but never quite got back his touch. Left the show a few weeks ago.
Lee Hyuk Jae – Never really liked him and I don’t think I ever will. Makes funny remarks occasionally and dovetails well with Jung Hyung Don.
Kim Won Hee – The best MC on the show? Probably. The only MC who offered a female perspective. Her loss was quite a big blow to the show overall.
Jung Hyung Don – Drafted in as a MC after his divorce with Saori. As a MC, he’s pretty awesome with his comments and quick reaction.
Park Myung Soo – Came in as a consultant and didn’t do much. Became a MC and talked a bit more. But sadly, his services is no longer required.
Kang Soo Jung – Came in as replacement for Kim Won Hee. Talked too much in her debut and got complaints. Toned down somewhat in subsequent episodes but still an irritant. At least she left before the program got canned.
