The global edition of popular South Korean reality variety show “We Got Married” has finally been aired this April and thus received a lot of media attention. The first season of “Global We Got Married” 우리 결혼했어요 세계판 features two international couples: F.T. Island‘s Lee Hongki and Japanese actress/tarento Fujii Mina, 2PM‘s Ok Taecyeon and Taiwanese singer-actress Emma Wu Ying Jie (aka Gui Gui). In the global version, celebrities not only have to adapt to each other’s personalities, but also a different culture. Some netizens believe that this edition has the potential to make a positive influence on public opinion of intercultural marriage.
MBC’s reality TV show “We Got Married” pairs up celebrities to experience a make-believe married life. Couples are assigned different tasks to complete each week, and reveal their thoughts and feelings in interviews after the events. So far there have been four seasons of “We Got Married” (original, Korean ver.). Popular “We Got Married” couples include the “Adam couple” (Jo Kwon and Gain), the “YongSeo Couple” (Yonghwa and Seohyun) and the “Khuntoria” couple (Nichkhun and Victoria Song), etc. Even China is producing its own version of the variety show, in which a Chinese celebrity and a Korean idol are paired up (Hyomin and Fu Xinbo, Kyuhyun and Lou Yi Xiao).
