‘Married’ names new coupleActress Kim So-eun and actor Song Jae-rim will join the MBC reality show “We Got Married,” the program’s newest couple since 2PM’s Woo-young and actress Park Se-young left the program on Saturday, according to local media.
Launched in early 2008, the show has since paired up celebrities, ranging from K-pop icons to comedians, to show what the stars’ hypothetical married lives would be like.
Actress Lee Si-young rose to stardom in 2009 after her imaginary marriage to singer Jun Jin blossomed into romance. The couple broke up soon after, however, in the same year.
Song and Kim met for the first time on Thursday, when they began filming for the show, according to media reports.
Kim uploaded a photo with Song last week on Twitter, which showed the two sitting side-by-side on a sofa, smiling for the camera while making a V-sign with their fingers. “A selfie to celebrate our new home,” Kim wrote.
Their make-believe marriage will air starting Saturday on MBC.
