The press conference for the global edition of MBC TV ‘We Got Married’ was held on the afternoon of March 28th at MBC Dream Center in Ilsan, Gyeonggi Province, which was attended by the couples of F.T. Island’s Lee Hong Ki and Fuji Mina together with 2PM’s Taecyeon and Emma Wu.
Lee Hong Ki expressed, “Since a long time ago, I have always wanted to get married to a foreigner. There were even times where I imagined myself to be getting married. Although it is make-believe, it feels pretty interesting to be experiencing married life in reality. When I heard that ‘We Got Married’ was going global, I immediately accepted the offer to appear in it. If it was just the normal ‘We Got Married’, I would most probably not appear in it.”
Exciting footage from the global edition of ‘We Got Married’ were aired during the press conference to whip up anticipation. When Taecyeon’s ‘wife’, Emma Wu, was asked who her favourite 2PM member was, she said without hesitation that it was Nichkhun. After hearing his wife’s reply, Taecyeon jumped up from his seat in protest, and left everyone in stitches at his exaggerated actions. Emma Wu then expressed, “I am really happy to be collaborating with Taecyeon.” Taecyeon said in jest, “What about Nichkhun then?” Emma Wu replied, “It was just a joke to mention Nichkhun, I love Taecyeon oppa the most.”
The global edition of ‘We Got Married’ will see idol celebrities from different countries having a virtual marriage and work their way through weekly missions and candid interviews. The show will star F.T. Island’s Lee Hong Ki and Fuji Mina together with 2PM’s Taecyeon and Emma Wu. A Chinese version of ‘We Got Married’ was aired in February 2012 and received a good response in China, and starred Super Junior’s Kyuhyun with Lou Yi Xiao together with T-ARA’s Hyomin and Fu Xin Bo.
The global edition of ‘We Got Married’ will be aired in over 21 countries including South Korea, Japan, India, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China in weekend prime-time slots.
The show will make its debut at 11:10PM (KST) on April 7th through cable channel MBC every1.
