What is the reason for the regular scandals involving ‘We Got Married’ couples?
EDIT. Comments are back open. And people, stop being pessimistic all the time, try to see not the only one side of coin and think about possibilies.
What do Alex & ShinAe, Crown J & Seo InYoung, Park SoHyun & Kim WonJun all have in common?
All have appeared on ‘We Got Married’ (known as ‘WGM’) as part of virtual couples with scandals of them being a ‘real’ couple.
For this reason the ‘WGM’ casts are known to deal with regular scandals. At the MBC Dream Centre in GyeongGi-Do, Illsan we met ‘WGM’ PD-nim Kim JunHyeon who analiyed the reasons “It’s because of our unique and professional take on the ‘Ideal matching’” he said.
When the ‘WGM’ crew are getting a new cast they find out their ideal type and secrectly find the opposite. (Oh, WGM you smarmy gits.) Kim JunHyeon PD said “We ask all the candidates about their ideal type who they’d like to be a couple with. but no matter how good of a picture they pain, ultimatly this isn’t a self-selection show”
In fact according to the production team when a candidate names his/her ideal type and is only a ‘visually strong team’ they immediately fail. In this regard the current WGM couples JangWoo – EunJung and LeeTeuk – Sora are not their ideal types but they will work well together regardless. After shooting has ended and they are officially ’off work’ unlike other shows the cast and crews of ‘WGM’ will not immediately leave, but stick around so they can talk to each-other. Kim JunHyeon PD revealed “‘WGM’ couples don’t just film and then go, they don’t like to think about leaving”
However the producers stated that the virtual couples are still not real lovers. Kim JunHyeon PD said “We only make out that their each-others ideal type, acting is only acting. scandals are quite literally just scandals”
EunJung’s ‘Hidden camera’ event was directly prepared by Lee JangWoo. Inviting MBC’s ‘WGM’ to the set of a KBS2TV drama “Glory Jane /Youngkwang’s JaeIn” along with EunJung. Kim JunHyeon PD “The fact that we got to shoot on the set of a third part’s filming site is not a easy agreement to make. Lee JangWoo kindly convined the KBS production team”
