‘We Got Married’ wants to recruit real-life celebrity couples
MBC‘s hit program ‘We Got Married‘ is working to recruit another couple for their new season.
In an attempt to boost viewer ratings, they are considering having another real-life couple on the show. A WGM representative stated, “It’s true that the show is less popular now than it once was. Taking into consideration that ratings were really high when we had real-life couple Kim Yong Jun and Hwang Jung Eum on the show, we are in the works of trying to recruit another dating couple.”
However, it seems that getting celebrity couples to come onto the show is more difficult than they thought. They had initially extended an invitation to Lady Jane and Simon D, as well as to KARA‘s Goo Hara and B2ST‘s Yong Junhyung, who both turned down the offer.
“Although they would only be mimicking a real marriage on the show, they are afraid of losing more of their own privacy. Additionally, each person wants to be known as an individual artist, rather than be identified as a couple,” representatives explained. “It’s going to be hard to recruit one of Hallyu’s more popular couples.”
WGM’s new producer, PD Kim Jun Hyun, remarked, “Its hard trying to recruit new couples considering I just took over. We are working to put together fun new couples and will announce them once things are finalized.”
