We Got Married …
For this magazine I wanted to write about one of the most watched TV shows in Korea.
It is, of course, We Got Married. After three seasons the show has not finished making us dream, still in progress, the production does not stop in so good way.
Amateur reality TV? This program is for you! (Camille F the journalist)
It all started with a pilot episode aired February 6, 2008 on MBC. Four couples have the task to make a dinner with a given amount they must not exceed. The show is a hit: it is renewed for a first season in March, keeping the pairs created during the pilot.
The principle (how it works)
It’s simple. The idea is to move the virtual couples to newlyweds who carry out missions to the rhythm of episodes. Such as moving in, the preparation of kimchi, an activity for couple or offer gifts to his family in law. In some activities, guests are invited (close friends, celebrity) and give their feelings on the couple.
This season consists of 7 couples but the couple most publicized was definitely Leeteuk and Kang Sora who was nicknamed the “Dimple Couple” because of their dimples ! Over time, we see couples gain intimacy : romance scenes or scenes of jealousy are waiting for you. We can believe that it is more than a television show, that can be the reality which of course feeds the fantasies of fans who would like to see some couples become real.
Highlight (Best moment)
Jealousy when you hold us! Leeteuk made us discover a hidden face. Both romantic and jealous during a romantic dinner, he has not been able to refrain himself from questioning his beloved on her relationships with men. Kang Sora retorted that it worked well with girls band. Caught in his own trap and not knowing what to say, Leeteuk replied with a “Me ? No, never.”
All good things come to an end and the departure to the army of Leeteuk inevitably stop the fictional couple. After ten months of filmingthe last episode aired on September 8, 2012, was marked by a dramatic atmosphere. Kang Sora could not restrain her tears, which caused one of the most beautiful kisses of this season. Following this sad end, Leeteuk, in a personal interview, confess that he had been selfish to think that Kang Sora had not taken seriously the filming of the show, while the reaction of this one during the final episode proves otherwise.
We Got Married is a show and very “fleur bleue” (French expression meaning very romantic). The concept aimed to follow the adventures of a young married couple can not please everybody, but the issue remains one of the most popular divertissements in Asia.
