sorry if I offended anyone. Actually what I meant to say is not that Sung Jae can't afford to buy the diamond ring but why would he buy it?its a fake marriage so I doubt he will actually pay out of his own pocket. Mostly they are sponsored for the show, so to pretend that it's real it's kinda annoying. i get that it's a make belief marriage but to actually pretend that they are paying for the presents is just off putting. I guess I have to delude myself when watching Wgm. Believe me I'm one of those fools many times before. Lol
Seriously, all these fake pretense are wearing on my patience. - Sungjae panicked cos Joy wanted him to buy her a diamond ring?? Come on, as if it's coming out of his pocket. http://www.soompi.com/2015/11/14/yook-sungjae-is-caught-off-guard-when-joy-wants-a-diamond-ring-for-wedding-present/ - Min Suk declaring he loves Yewon on a busy street. Are they for real? And their talks about having kids, etc.......as if they will really get married :-(
I know it's a fantasy married show but do they need to pretend to that extent? All these false public declaration of love is ridiculous. Not forgetting all the pretense of buying a home, a ring, a present. But the funny things is, shippers actually believe it's real. It's really meant for delusional fans. Sorry for the rant. I just feel the program is taking us for fools. although I know there really are many out there. lol
Hey gals!! I've not been posting for a long while. I'm still watching WGM on off but none of the couple have my heart. I no longer invest my feelings into it. It's a good thing right? I'm so glad there's no Kim So Eun 2.0 !! I still log in to this thread to read your thoughts. Thanks for keeping the thread moving....Isn't it peaceful now that we don't have shippers coming here to "tell" us what to feel. KSY couple -I still feel uncomfortable watching them. Based on her 20 years of acting experience, it makes it wonder if it's all an act? As for him....really can't tell from his poker face. Even if they don't like each other, can they actually say that on screen? So they have to pretend....If she behaved more maturedly, I may be able to believe it. No doubt they have a huge age gap but they have to "sell" the romance don't they? It's We Got Married for gods sake, although for 100 days. They are supposed to decide if they want to extend it right? I like the part where he locked her in his arms when the mascot came behind them. That looked natural enough. Anyway, aren't guys all the same? They can still flirt with girls even though they don't like them much. To them, this is work so they just need to pretend and act their hearts out. Frankly, I'm tired of their manufactured set ups. Can't they be more creative? WGM China version is more interesting although they have some of the same korean setups but they managed to keep things different with all the couples. Unlike the Korean WGM, their dates are usually yoga dates, visit old school, amusement park, housewarming, visit each other's work place, etc, and they are seriously getting old.
Hey girls. Great reading your thoughts on the couples although I've been too busy to post here lately. Plus there's no irritating wife that made my blood boil. lol Baby couple - They are cute but boring.....To me anyway. It shouldn't be called We Are Married, for them, it should be We Are Dating. Their interactions are just too "planned" since both are idols. It just feels everything are manufactured set-up, that maybe even their convo are scripted too. OhYe couple - I think they've settled into a groove and Yewon is more reception to Minsuk. I don't know if I should read more into it about them since we are told that they even contact each other outside of WGM. Minsuk even visited her when she was having drinks when her movie filming ended, and went out for drinks after. We know this was done spontaneously since it wasn't filmed. If he had no project at hand, I could believe that it's simply a job. But because he's also in acting in a drama now, he still made time for her which I find it to be sweet. So both are taking it very seriously? But still a job to them? I'm confused. I think for this couple, they are likely to behave the same way even after the filming ended. Blueberry couple - Frankly I was cringing watching Kim So Yeon. She's already 37 yet she was giggly and overly nervous, so much so that she had to put her head into the fridge and outside the window. Is it an act or is she really like that? I can't imagine her being like this in real life after watching her as a kickass assassin in IRIS, or a successful career woman in I Love Romance 3. If she's so shy, how is she able to act in those sexy and kiss scenes? It's mind boggling. It's fine if she's still in her 20s but to react that way is kinda overboard. Si Yang may have said she's cute but who knows how he actually feels about it. It's a gig to him so he has to make it work. I'm sure after filming, they revert to format language. This 100 day contract is just a plot device. I'm sure both will continue with the marriage because by discontinuing it will affect their image, lose their earnings, lose the audience (since I've read that their popularity exploded in China). So it's all business. 7 years difference is huge. On top of that, she debuted 21 years ago while he only debuted a year ago. Their disparity is too glaring for it to be comfortable, much less romantic. Anyone feel "romance" in the air for these 2? It was only "discomfort" I felt. I love his take charge attitude as he didn't let her nervousness or seniority get to him. Let's hope that things will get better in the weeks to come.
Didn't see this coming. Isn't Kim So Yeon an established actress?? Why the need to go in this program? He's the cute chef Gordon from Oh My Goddess. Noona romance. http://www.allkpop.com/article/2015/08/actors-kim-so-yeon-and-kwak-si-yang-confirmed-as-new-couple-on-we-got-married
@colourgrae Yipe you are right. I think they are both very honest in their BRI and interactions with each other. That's what I feel with Minyoung couple and see what happens now? They need to revamp their format. It's getting old. The original objective of this program is gone now since it belongs to SM and serves as a vehicle to market their idols. It was so much more enjoyable watching the earlier seasons.
Hey gals, it's been a long while since I posted. I read that BE couple had real feelings for each other so their agencies are putting a stop to it. Not sure how true it is though. I'm losing my interests in WGM and only follow Ohyea couple. Someone posted the unseen video recently where he mentioned that he's thankful to experience marriage in this fictional marriage, made me jerk to my senses to remind me that it's just a show. Whatever they say or do are not to be believed even if it seems real. No matter how compatible we think they are, we can never believe they are real for a even a second.
The most damning evidence is that he leaves PD Na to do as he likes in the broadcast. With the type of character he has, I doubt PD Na dares to create this loveline without his approval. Considering he made a statement when there were rumors of him dating a chaebol.
@matilda_anne He was asked how was the welcome reception. He said he felt cold. LOL. He said when the pretty female guests came, they were received warmly. Firstly, SJ turned away from him. Then he walked further away. And the way he was given the flowers by SJ was like he threw it into the garbage. His bouquet was much smaller than the girls' . Then he walked away again. In the earlier episode SJ asked KNH if she liked honey but with him, SJ told him "Too bad, there's no more bees"..... They only want pretty female guests, especially those who can cook !
Hey gals. I'm back. I've watched the Chinese subbed version. He spoke about the personality of all the 3 guys. Here's what he said about SJ. SJ loves cleanliness, and he's very decisive in handling matters. If it's someone he dislikes, he will never ever see them. But if it's someone he likes, who suits him and he finds attractive (shot of him staring at JW besottedly - see screen grab below)
he will treat that person exceptionally well without rhyme or reason. (CAPTION: We know there's a special guest that he likes - with a shot of him staring at JW with his dimples nearly exploding....
I'm dead gals. The way he stared at her and didn't care if the cameraman were filming. I'm sure they are dating. Remember he didn't deny it when PD Na asked if they met recently? He said they met 2 days ago and also admitted they meet up frequently.
Seriously?? I found SJ lacked chemistry with other female guests. He's always holds himself back. It's obvious that he likes PSH cos she was a good cook. Even with BOA, he treated her as a female colleague, the way he usually would with others. As for KHN, I don't think she gels well with the guys at all. It made me feel uncomfortable watching her interact with the guys because she was so sensitive and insistent on doing things her way. In fact, she had been receiving negative feedback from netizens. http://www.soompi.com/2015/07/04/three-meals-a-day-pd-na-young-suk-responds-to-criticism-of-kim-ha-neuls-guest-appearance/ With JW, it's a comfort level like that of a stable girlfriend cos he doesn't filter anything. Korean guys are rather chauvinistic, considering SJ is already in his 40s. He wouldn't like having a female he barely knows reprimanding him or ordering him around in front of the crew and on screen.
In Chinese culture, I think sweets was synonymous with being rich in the olden days. In the days long ago, people only cared about filling up their tummies and had no qualms eating any food that came their way. Only the rich could afford it as sweets are stuff like cakes, snacks, etc.
@viyra That's my worry. Are they just acting? Or are they hoping it turns real? I'm excited about the next episode because OMS is successfully in the skinship. He even piggybacked her and laid together on the bed. That's some mighty progress. I realised Yewon was in Bad Guys, that awesome drama where criminals are released to catch bad guys. She played the police inspector. She's also gonna be in a new movie with Lee Sang Yoon. http://www.dramabeans.com/2015/07/news-bites-july-19-2015/ This is the only couple that I'm keen on. The rest I watch to pass the time.
Hi Gals, Haven't posted in a while though I still lurk frequently. Revelations from this episode: 1) SJ kept telling JW "I kept asking you and grew suspicious" - after he mentioned that she didn't mention that she was appearing on the show although they met 2 days ago. 2) JW constantly ordering SJ - he smiled and did as ordered 3) JW reprimanded him about not doing anything and letting the guests and Tac do all the work - SJ never got angry at all and just bicker cutely 4) JW swapped his foot with the mosquito swapper - bodes familiarity 5) Besides lying down comfortably on the bed even with JW there, at one point, his legs were even pointed upwards like a kid - his comfort level with JW is just too comfortable. Compare his behaviour to other female guests. 6) SJ admitted openly that they see each other frequently, otherwise he would have said they meet each other sometimes, during events, etc. 7) SJ insisted that she's not a guest but a host - I doubt he's referring to a sibling relationship How can these 2 be just friends? Their body language and bickering are just too cute. Even Tac felt that they have gone beyond the dating stage. Dating stage is still at the beginning stages whereby both parties try to only show the good side. But the way they behaved shows that they have gone past that stage, where the relationship is already stable and both have already seen each other's good and bad sides as well.
After watching WGM on and off for years, I finally found all 3 couples who actually like each other. More often than not, it had been one sided attraction or zero attraction with some of the couples. But I think all 3 couples do like each other, which in turn bodes well for the progress of their relationship. It's awesome to watch them as there's no longer any domineering wife and slave husband roles. It's a breath of fresh air not to have any more flinching, emasculation, competitive behaviour or toilet humour, just to fill the air time.
