- Since coconuts are one of the natural delicacies and considered to be the pride and joy of that country~^^ I think they prepared it for us because they thought it’d be good to mention it* The times they’ve shown us written directions on a sketchbook don’t even amount to as much as 3 times, although there is a planned outline of things there’s no script, they always tell us ‘today you’re going to do this and play’, that’s all..ㅋㅋ
- The same for ‘Hug me♪♩♪’….. I heard the song once and fell in love with the lyrics.. so I thought about how I wanted to sing it out loud in the open, it suddenly came to mind then ㅋㅋㅋ 10cm oppas, I hope.. you’ll enjoy it while watching We Got Married..eukyakyakyakyakya ♥ (Suddenly the topic has been shifted towards this direction……?ㅋㅋ
And remember JangWoo’s interview, how he said that in WGM it’s 20% of script and 80% of his real self.
T-ara’s Eunjung Denies Rumors of WGM Following a Script
Earlier today, photos indicating MBC “We Got Married” following a script were posted online. It showed a staff member of WGM holding a sign that read, “Let’s try the coconuts,” in front of the Eunjung-Lee Jang Woo couple, hinting that the show is usually scripted and the actions on the show are not truly candid. The photos have caused quite a commotion among loyal WGM fans who were disappointed to discover some of the actions on the show were not natural, and rather scripted in advance.
In response to the allegations, however, T-ara’s Eunjung, who currently stars as a couple with Lee Jang Woo, tweeted, “Coconut is something that country is famous for. I think the staff member thought it would be good to expose it more on the show.”
She continued, “They write things up on a cardboard less than three times on a regular show. We’re usually given the basic framework but there’s no script. They just tell us, ‘Today, you’re going to play doing this,’ and nothing else, kekeke.”
Netizens who saw the tweet commented, “Well, I guess most variety shows follow a script,” “Eunjung makes sense, too,” and “I’m still going to the watch the show anyway.”
T-ara’s Eunjung explains, “We Got Married does not have a planned scenario”
Regarding the latest issue of MBC’s We Got Married having a planned scenario, T-ara’s Eunjung gave an explanation in a cute manner.
On March 12, Eunjung tweeted, “Because the country was famous for its natural coconuts juice and proud of it~ I believe that’s why they prepared the fruits to be exposed on TV.
Sometimes staff writes down something on sketchbook for me to say, but it does not exceed three times. The program has an overall frame, but it doesn’t provide any script. They simply tell me, ‘We’re going to hang out doing such and such today,’ and nothing else.” Her tweet clarified that We Got Married is not run with a planned scenario.
Before her tweet, some pictures of the couple Lee Jang Woo and Eunjung shooting We Got Married in Indonesia were posted online. Because a person who appeared to be a scriptwriter was spotted holding a sign which reads “Let’s have some coconuts,” netizens questioned whether the show was based on an already-written scenario.
Eunjung added another tweet, “About the song ‘Hug Me’… When I heard the song, I immediately fell in love with its lyrics.. So I thought about singing it for him, and one day, it suddenly struck me. I hope 10cm oppas will like it when they see it on We Got Married.. Hopefully.. Hahaha (The story’s developing in a strange way..?)” Through this tweet, she indirectly showed that her affection for Lee Jang Woo is still valid.
Netizens who saw Eunjungs’ tweets commented: “The way you explain it is adorable, unnie.” “I’ll believe you that the show only has an overall frame.” “Right? People should never judge something by simply looking at one side.” “I believe you cuz I’m your fan.” “Lee Jang Woo and Eunjung, you guys make such a cute couple.” “Sing ‘Hug Me’ on broadcast sometime~!!”

WGM Producer Thanks Fans for Script Accusations
The main producer of MBC “We Got Married” spoke with local media to address the recent script allegations. The popular reality show was hit by rumors of following a script, instead of being made out of candid actions,after photos of a staff member holding a cardboard that read, “Let’s try the coconuts,” in front of T-ara’s Eunjung and Lee Jang Woo were revealed.
On March 12, the main producer Kim Joon Hyun spoke with Sports Chosun and said, “There are no scripts for the cast members. The staff members get the basic synopsis, but the cast members don’t get to read it in advance. They don’t have a script, and that’s why they actually have to use a cardboard on the set.”
“At the time, we were walking down a beautiful trail and Eunjung wanted to try the coconut. So we promised to have it on our way back up, but because there were so many people, the couple totally forgot about it. So in order to remind them of the coconut, our staff member used the cardboard,” he added.
“In fact, there are no variety shows that don’t use cardboards while recording. For ‘We Got Married,’ it’s a reality show, so we can’t really get involved directly. We use the cardboard once in a while, but that happens only very few times. Also, in a lot of cases, the cast members miss the sign or don’t even mention it on the show,” he continued.
The producer actually said he’s thankful for all the attention and he takes it as a positive sign. “I think it’s actually a good sign that so many people are interested in our show. And if anybody can find a writer who can come up with the script for any of our ‘We Got Married’ episodes, I’ll gladly sign that person for over a million dollars,” he said.
