For real, South Korean reality variety show “We Got Married” (우리 결혼했어요) will be taken off air in May.
But it’s not as bad as you think.
First broadcast in 2008, “We Got Married” spotlights Korean celebrities engaging in make-believe married life. Each week, couples have assigned missions to complete, with candid interviews of the participants to reveal their thoughts and feelings.
Amongst the most notable “We Got Married” couplings in history are such as Shinhwa’s Andy and Solbi, 2AM’s Jo Kwon and Brown Eyed Girls’ Gain, 2PM’s Nichkhun and f(x)’s Victoria, SS501’s Kim Hyun Joong and Hwangbo, CNBLUE’s Jung Yong Hwa and SNSD Girl’s Generation’s Seohyun, and BtoB’s Yook Sung Jae and Red Velvet’s Joy, just to name a few.
“We Got Married” was wildly popular after it began airing in 2008, reaching international popularity and spawning different versions of the show including a Chinese version (pairing Korean and Chinese celebrities), a Global Edition (pairing couples from Korea, Japan, and Taiwan), and “We Are In Love” (a licensed remake).
However, it has been struggling with ratings in recent years, which led to rumours that it might be coming to an end soon.
But fret not! According to “We Got Married” broadcaster MBC, the show will only be taking a short break to revamp for another season. “Our program has been airing for a long time, so we decided to take a break after season 4 to reorganise and bring new content to viewers. This is not the end, but a new beginning,” MBC said.
Season 4 of “We Got Married” will end with the 6th May episode. Although MBC has yet to announce which show will fill in the “We Got Married” slot, we already can’t wait to see what changes the new season will bring!
