The KhunToria couple, Nichkun 닉쿤 and Victoria 빅토리아, is the third idol couple and the first foreign couple in the show “We Got Married”; the first and second idol couples being the Sweet Potato couple (Seohwa, Yeonghwa-Seohyun or YongSeo) and the Adam couple (Jokwon-Gain).

“We Got Married” is a popular reality South Korean variety show; first broadcasted in 2008, the show pairs up Korean celebrities to show what life would be like if they were married. Each week, couples are assigned missions for them to complete, with candid interviews of the participants to reveal their thoughts and feelings during the show.

The KhunToria couple has other names too, most dubbed by both sides of their fans. Therefore, Nichkun and Victoria are sometimes referred to as the International couple, VNI couple or Mr. & Mrs. Winnie.

We’ve already mentioned both Victoria and Nichkhun before in our article Korean Celebs – Who to Travel With, Victoria’s real name is Song Qian ( 宋茜 ). Born in Qingdao, China, Victoria has been the leader of the South Korean girl group f(x) since August 2009. Having attended Beijing Dance Academy and majored in Chinese ethnic and folk dance, Victoria is best known for her flexible body.

Born in California, USA, Nichkhun’s full name is Nichkhun Horvejkul ( นิชคุณ หรเวชกุล ). His mother is Chinese, and his father is half Chinese, half Thai. Nichkhun debuted as a member of the South Korean boy band 2PM in 2008.

Having portrayed a couple in the show “We Got Married” since the summer, Nichkhun and Victoria have confused a great amount of their international fans. Whilst some people were searching for pictures and videos of the cute KhunToria couple, others wondered why these two popular foreign idols were chosen for this season of “We Got Married”.

Earlier this year, producers of the show explained that they chose Nichkhun due to his strong appeal to the female audience and a great physical appearance. As for Victoria, whose Korean wasn’t that good back then, the show’s staff has explained that the reason was because of Victoria’s progress in Korean. Over a year, Victoria has improved her Korean remarkably, and now she speaks the language much more naturally than before.

Even though Victoria and Nichkhun are a fake couple, the make-believe KhunToria couple has proven to be well-received internationally, especially in South Korea and the U.S., bringing tremendous popularity to the show. Many of their fans even believe that Nichkhun is gradually falling for Victoria.
