Representatives of th Kpop industry have been circulating the rumor that popular couple Yonghwa and Seohyun on “We Got Married,” will be departing the show.
According to an MBC representative: “The Jung Yonghwa and Seohyun couple are currently in discussions to leave the show. They’ve already been on the show for over a year, and it seems their busy schedules are getting in the way.”
This possibility of the couple leaving We Got Married was confirmed by another broadcasting employee, who stated: “There hasn’t been anything confirmed yet, but it seems they will be recording their final episode for the show within this month. Producers are currently looking for another couple to take their place.”
The rumors began shortly after Yonghwa and Seohyun’s wedding photos were released, as fans have noticed that couples tend to leave the show once a certain level of skinship has been reached between them.
In addition both SNSD, and C.N. Blue have very busy times ahead of them. SNSD is continuing to push its way into the Japanese market, with a tour scheduled and upcoming album. Yonghwa is also preparing for a C.N. Blue comeback, and was also casted for a lead role in MBC’s upcoming drama Festival.
MBC just released the following statement:
“All good things must eventually end. While we had been discussing the couple’s leave for a while, we had some difficult decisions to make, and both sides are dissapointed with the rumors that got out before we made any official statements. Contrary to popular belief, their final episode still has not been filmed yet, but will be completed within the next month. We will make their finale as beautiful as possible, reflecting the couple’s wishes.”
No replacement for the couple has been announced yet.
