On February 18, an official told enews that "the Yoon Se Ah and Julien Kang couple, loved as the couple with the best visuals, will be leaving We Got Married 4. Their last episode will air on March 3."

A rep from Yoon Se Ah′s agency also confirmed to enews, "It is true that talks are underway. We believe the final decision will be made within the week."

Yoon Se Ah and Julien Kang joined We Got Married on August 18, 2012. The couple even participated in a traditional marriage ceremony on the February 16 broadcast to congratulations from their fellow celebrity guests.

Producers have been pouring all their efforts into recruiting the next couple to join the show following the new arrivals Go Joon Hee and 2AM′s Jung Jin Woon.

Yoon Se Ah debuted with the 2005 film Blood Rain and rose to stardom through SBS′ A Gentleman′s Dignity. Julien Kang is the little brother of Dennis Kang, a star in martial arts, and appeared in MBC′s High Kick: The Short Legs Strike Back.



′We Got Married′ Welcomes the Jo Jung Chi and Jung In Real Couple


The Jo Jung Chi and Jung In couple will be joining We Got Married next following Yoon Se Ah and Julien Kang′s departure.

A source close to the couple told enews, "It has been confirmed that Jo Jung Chi and Jung In will join We Got Married. As they′re a public couple that has been together for a long time, they′ll be able to display some sincere emotions on the show."

The couple is the second real-life couple to join the show, following SG Wannabe Kim Yong Jun and Hwang Jung Eum.

Adding the new, real-life couple is expected to reestablish the sincerity of the show, which has been recently undermined by the many controversies that surrounded the MBLAQ Lee Joon and Oh Yeon Seo couple.

One official stated, "The addition of the real couple seems to aim at dispersing the recent controversies surrounding reality shows. The recent rediscovery of Jo Jung Chi through MBC′s Infinity Challenge has also had some effect on the decision."

Jo Jung Chi is a guitarist and singer/songwriter active as a member of Shinchirim and Greencheese. He recently rose to stardom through his appearance on Infinity Challenge.

Jung In debuted as a vocalist with LeeSsang′s first album in 2002, and appeared in MBC′s I Am a Singer 2 in 2012.

Little sad about the Shoulder couple. They're not my favorite but I do think their skinship is the most natural, and Yoon Se Ah can be a real riot sometimes :'DD Their wedding episodes have been fun so far, then this news came T__T This is a cruel cruel show, I'd be so sad the day Sunhee couple leaves :P

Kinda OT but does anyone know if Kim Yong Jun and Hwang Jung Eum are still together?

I'm not that interested in this new couple or the other current couples but I do hope the show can improve ratings so one day in the future when they have a couple I do care about again I can watch them. Goguma and lettuce couples forever!!!

I bet one of them is finally in a real relationship and didn't want the backlash from being in one.

Aww I'll miss them, especially Se Ah! She always made things a lot more fun with her craziness :)

Is this how it normally is for WGM, swapping couples? Cause I watch mainly for Sunhee. Are they likely to get pulled too? Although I think 2am and the girl from yawang is a cute couple.

It seems like WGM tends to clean house around the same time, but I'm not really worried about Sunhee. I think they are a pretty entertaining couple and they need one established couple to stay on through the changes to keep people watching. But I guess who knows at this rate.
bigukgal 18th-Feb-2013 04:22 pm (UTC)
Okay, thank you. Fingers crossed no more screwing around.
fallingstarryuu 18th-Feb-2013 03:39 pm (UTC)
tbh they'll keep sunhee bc they're the ones bringing viewer ratings. reception to the new couple has been poor & nobody really cares since the girl is known to be dating someone before she went on the show.
bigukgal 18th-Feb-2013 04:32 pm (UTC)
Okay. Hopefully Sunhee are secure. Sunhee seem to be real good friends I like their vibe.
hipployta 18th-Feb-2013 04:32 pm (UTC)
They usually keep one or two couples during a mass changeover as the stabilizing couple and then phase them out next.
clayray3290 18th-Feb-2013 05:47 pm (UTC)
Yeah, my first thought was concern for Sunhee, too, but I think and hope they'll be okay. I think they're considered to be the ones who brought in more interest in this season anyway and they still have some popularity, considering that a WGM-related search term of "Han Sunhwa tears" was at the top of the search terms after the episode aired. So I'm thinking that's a good sign.
cmyesaito 18th-Feb-2013 02:02 pm (UTC)
:( I liked them... but I wasn't watching WGM anymore anyway... I wonder if the show is going to continue much longer...
ovary_acting 18th-Feb-2013 02:40 pm (UTC)
Aw, I'm gonna miss Se Ah. She's so funny. But I mostly just watch for Sunhee. And I kind of like the new couple especially since Joon Hee said she's a Baro fan lol
illustratedd 18th-Feb-2013 03:04 pm (UTC)
why is this show still on? unless they put me/hyoyeon on it, i don't see the relevance anymore tbh
zombiechick815 18th-Feb-2013 03:16 pm (UTC)
This makes me really sad. I think the Shoulder couple is really cute, their interactions are very natural and they of all the couples seem like they could be a real couple. However, I kind of thought for a while now that this couple wasn't as entertaining as the others so this isn't a huge surprise to me.

I don't really know anything about this new couple, so I'll watch them for a couple of weeks before I make any judgments but if they wanted to pull in more viewers I don't really see this as the couple to do that.
patentpending 18th-Feb-2013 03:57 pm (UTC)
Don't like the actress Jinwoon got paired with so far so I doubt I'll be paying much attention to that couple. Sunhee couple, while I love them, are way too over the top sometimes, they border from funny to eye roll inducing. I don't know who these new people are, I'll give them a chance because I like...Well, liked, the show, but I'm pissed my favorite couple is leaving so abruptly and after such a short run. They were hands down the best couple and seemed to be genuinely enjoying themselves and each others company and not just hamming it up for the cameras 24/7.
gloomyclock 18th-Feb-2013 04:08 pm (UTC)
I think I might check out the new couple, because they seem cute/fun. This couple was fun at first and it made me a fan of Se Ah, but they became boring after a while.
taeyang 18th-Feb-2013 05:02 pm (UTC)
ugh. they were the only couple i'd been watching lately and i loved them together. sunhee couple is just too over the top annoying and i haven't even started to watch jinwoon's episodes yet. i hate wgm. :(
yesungholic 18th-Feb-2013 05:15 pm (UTC)
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
they were so cute...don't make them leave...
xalexandriam 18th-Feb-2013 05:16 pm (UTC)
great. now where will i be able to see julien kang's fine ass on my laptop screen every week?
asth77 18th-Feb-2013 05:25 pm (UTC)
srsly @ the new couple??
quarryman28 18th-Feb-2013 07:10 pm (UTC)
Ah, sad but not unexpected (WGM couples have a tendency to leave once they have a marriage ceremony, so I was kind of expecting it). They were easily my favourite of the couples this season; they just had natural chemistry and didn't really have to play things up too much for the cameras. It will be interesting to have a real life couple on the show, though.
miliy96 18th-Feb-2013 11:54 pm (UTC)
Where can I watch all their episodes?
sweet16een 19th-Feb-2013 09:35 am (UTC)
The last time they added a real-life couple
it was kind of boring

I'm going to miss Seah and Julien
