We Got Married 100619

More disaster for the Adam couple this week! The lease for their house is over, and they’re forced to move out. Awww. And where to move to but to…2AM’s dorm. The place where Ga-in had some less than happy memories. LOL.

I personally felt that the producers did this on purpose – it’s not that they haven’t scouted out a potential new house for the couple, but this is a nice opportunity to subject them to more disaster. (And because we’re such sadists who enjoy watching them go through some hardships first before being happy.)

I love how Changmin initially was not too happy at having Ga-in camping there, but when she mentioned her friends saying how handsome he was, he became so happy! Lol. See how far flattery can get you in life. Seulong was easy to impress too, and it was hilarious to see him and Jinwoon in the couple hoodie singing We Fell in Love. πŸ˜„

All the 2AM + Ga-in interaction in the episode was great, and they desperately tried to hold them back when they wanted to leave, lol. I could not stop laughing throughout the episode – it’s a good way to cap off the weekend! πŸ˜€ And…in the next episode Nichkhun and Victoria of f(x) are joining as a new couple! I’m really excited to see how that goes.

The vid links in my previous posts are no longer available on youtube, but other links are available on youtube and tudou if you search hard enough. πŸ™‚ I know they’re out there.

I didn’t plan on doing a weekly post of the programme, but they’re just sooo cute! Kwon wanted to give Ga-in the couple ring in the cinema but they both ended up falling asleep…so fail, but hilarious. It’s moments like this that enforce the realness of the show (even if it’s made up), that nothing in the world is perfect. You can plan for ages how you want something to turn out, and eventually nothing does goes according to plan. But he should have angled for a kiss right after she got the ring, guess he was too excited too.

Just a little note here, Kwonnie looks a bit weird when he’s driving lol. And he probably doesn’t drive often enough to have polished his parking skills too, but he did try. πŸ™‚ Next, they go bungee jumping – how cool is that?!

Ga-in was nervous, she even asked if there was alcohol sold nearby and she insisted the place wasn’t open lol. Kwon was scared too but I think his fear was toned down a bit in the face of Ga-in and her nerves. So sweet! It was hilarious though, later on as his fear became more and more apparent. It was such a sweet episode of them filled with Adam-couple flavour. Perfect for the weekend πŸ˜‰

We Got Married

Who got married, you say? It’s my latest k-variety fad, where celebrities are united in make-believe matrimony and carry out romantic missions designed to make viewers’ heart go all aflurry. Usually I’d see through the ploys and scoff at these sort of things, but I really did fall for this couple – Kwon and Ga-in. While I disagree with the show being anything close to reality tv programmes in the States (what’s real when they’re not really married anyway?), this couple sometimes blurs the lines between reality and tv.

Who are these people, you wonder? Jo Kwon is the leader of idol boyband 2AM, while Ga-in is arguably one of the most outstanding members of the Brown-Eyed Girls. While they both have had success in their singing activities, their exploits on We Got Married has surprisingly propelled them into spotlight. I could spend all day discussing the phenomenon of kpop fandom and their obsession with their idols, but all I can say is that the show did do Kwon and Ga-in some good. For someone like me who had no inkling of who 2AM or Brown-Eyed Girls were, it opened up my eyes to their work, some of which are rather enjoyable.

I don’t wonder if they’re really dating in real life, that would be completely up to them. But I do wonder if their interactions on the show, is it hammed up as a professional act in the premise of the show, or are their actions somehow a reflection of their true affection for each other? Now, that is why it’s got me hooked. Judge for yourself. Go watch it!

If you understand Mandarin, just type ‘ζˆ‘ε€‘η΅ε©šδΊ†’ in youtube and you can find all previous episodes subbed in Mandarin. Due to their large following in China, the episodes are subbed very quickly after the Saturday broadcast in Korea. The latest episode is already up here, and it’s just Sunday afternoon in Asia! For English-only viewers, there’s a fansubbing group to follow on youtube. Tell me what you think. πŸ™‚
