After 2 consecutive weeks of re-runs, MBC We Got Married will finally resume broadcast starting this Sunday with Episode 41. This follows a temporary halt to the strike by the media workers’ union over the passing of a new legislation to allow firms to own both newspapers and broadcast news outlets.
Besides being finally able to catch up with the love stories of the 3 existing couples on the show, we will also get our first look at the newly-matched couple of Jung Hyung Don and the leader of So Nyeo Shi Dae, Kim Tae Yeon.
More was also revealed about the setting that Hyung Don and Tae Yeon will be in. Just like Kangin and Lee Yoon Ji at the beginning, they will start off by being unattached to each other. Hyung Don will make a surprise visit at So Nyeo Shi Dae’s dormitory in the first episode to meet up with Tae Yeon.
The production team expressed that they will not be interfering with their decisions on whether they will start their make-believe marriage or not, “In order to show that this is not a foregone conclusion, we will let them meet first. Whatever the outcome is, it’s entirely up to Hyung Don and Tae Yeon.”
Hyung Don who has a failed “marriage” with Saori last year, will be getting married for the 2nd time if everything goes well. But the 11-year age difference, the expected Hyung Don behavior plus strong opposition from Tae Yeon’s idol fans have led to a public outcry for this to end before it has even started.
Tae Yeon also expressed her thoughts, “Hyung Don oppa might appear to be pretty lazy in his earlier “marriage” on the show. But with this new dating mission handed to him, he will be showing a totally different image.”
