What happens when New producers enter WGM
First, old couples leaves (ratings goes down!)
Second, new couples enters (sorry, many audiences dislike them more)
Third, they cut out TOO MUCH scenes.
Though I am still upset that I am not able to watch the latest ep.. Ep31.
But its okay.......... I shall stick to Family outing. Its also very niceeeeeeeeee :D
Family Outing on the Up. We Got Married in Crisis?
If it ain’t broken, why fix it? This can be applied to current variety shows in Korea, in particular SBS Family Outing and MBC We Got Married who are both going along different paths in their path to become the ratings leader.
PD Jang Hyuk Jae of SBS Family Outing announced today that the family on the variety show will remain as it is with no one being added or departing. This mean that Yoo Jae Suk, Lee Hyori, Park Ye Jin, Kim Suro, Lee Chun Hee, Daesung and Yoon Jong Shin will remain as it is. He was speaking in response to whether they might be any changes in the family lineup as reported.
PD Jang expressed, “They (family members) have excellent chemistry now and are well-liked by many regardless of age. Those in the 40s are taken care of by Yoon Jong Shin, the 30s by Kim Suro, Yoo Jae Suk, Lee Chun Hee, Lee Hyori and the 20s by Daesung and Park Ye Jin. Together, they are ‘Family‘.
With Family Outing currently enjoying a strong following and high ratings, the success must be attributed to the permanent family members who have contributed a lot with their wacky personalities. And when you add rotating guests like Kim Jong Kook, Rain, etc once every fortnight to the mix, the novelty factor and possible relationships makes it very interesting.
How are guest family members picked? PD Jang replied, “It’s not about inviting idols just because we want to create headlines or anything. Anyone can become a family member as long as their schedule permits them to.”
MBC Sunday Sunday Night segment, star wedding variety We Got Married is finding itself in a sticky situation. This was evidently seen via the ratings decline in the weeks after Andy and Solbi’s departure. This is despite the addition of Hwanhee, Hwayobi and Marco, Son Dambi couples, new PDs (from Episode 29 onwards), different studio recording format plus some subtle changes.
According to TNS Media Korea, the rating of We Got Married this past Sunday (Episode 31) was 13.5%. This was a drop of 2.2 percentage points from the previous episode of 15.7%. This is particularly worrying since it’s competitor in the same timeslot, SBS Family Outing had 27.5%, besting it’s own record.
The production team have been trying to assimilate the new couples into the show, hoping that the viewers can try something new (novelty factor) and take to them. But obviously, most of the viewers aren’t buying into it and felt that they are incapable of filling the void left behind by Andy and Solbi.
Alex and Shin Ae will say goodbye to We Got Married for the second time.
Alex and Shin Ae filmed their last outdoor shoot on 29th October for MBC We Got Married at the Acoustical Society of Korea located at Yeoksam-dong, Gangnam-gu. 60 fans from the Alshin fanclub attended in the format of a fanmeeting as Alex and Shin Ae left the show in their own special way.
On this day, Alex and Shin Ae came to the fanmeeting venue early as they decorated the entire place personally with flowers, balloons, photos (polaroids I guess ^^), etc. Shin Ae also made cookies and presents in the form of cosmetics, autographed photos, etc and packaged them nicely. The production team even transferred Alshin couple sofa from their home at Yongin, Gyeonggi-do to their fanmeeting place, making the atmosphere extra heartwarming.
During the fanmeeting, Alex and Shin Ae chatted with their fans, Alex sang for them while Shin Ae read out letters with the entire event brimming with excitement (you have to wonder how much of this will actually be aired). As Shin Ae was opening her letter, she couldn’t help but start tearing. She couldn’t stop herself and burst out crying several times while reading the letter.
Seeing that Alex and Shin Ae would really be leaving following the conclusion of the event, fans were noticeably sad at that. Alex and Shin Ae will film their last studio segment on 4th November and their farewell episode will air probably in mid-November. PDs claim that there will be no further changes after this.
Reasons given for Alex and Shin Ae departure from the show was because of Alex’s back problems while Shin Ae has to film a saeguk drama Empress Chun Chu. As the filming for Empress Chun Chu takes place in Gyeongsangbuk-do (outside of Seoul) and which could take up 5 to 7 consecutive days, it wasn’t realistic for Shin Ae to travel from Gyeongsangbuk-do to Seoul.
The ominous signs were there or rather a combination of factors that were forced by circumstances. Choi Jin Shil’s (Shin Ae was very close to her) death, Alex back problems, something fishy when they added 2 couples despite only Anbi leaving, the lack of airtime for Alshin couple in the past few episodes, Shin Ae starting her drama filming, Ant couple moving into a big house, etc.
It was good while it lasted when they made their return. It took a while to regain the lost spark. But when they eventually did, every single moment despite little airtime was sweet. They are still the only couple to leave and then return on We Got Married. Now, I have even more reason not to watch when they are officially off the show, they were my favourite couple afterall.Credit
I HATE THE FACT THAT COUPLES ARE LEAVING ONE BY ONE
I REALLY THOUGHT OF LEARNING KOREAN LANGUAGE WHEN THE MAIN ENGLISH SUBBER DECIDES TO STOP SUBBING WGM... AND WTF NOWWWWWW
ALSHIN IS LEAVING TOO??? ITS BEEN LESS THAN A MONTH ANBI LEFT.. AND NOW WHAT AGAIN????????????
I am honestly pissed off. New couples????????? SORRY........ CAN NEVER REPLACE OLD COUPLES. Firstly, the producers EDITED a lot SWEET AND NICE scenes from each episodes.. then now??? Those reasons of their departure aren't counted as reasonable reasons to me..
Well, don't stop texting,
keep your fingers on those buttons.
until they go numb, til 3 a.m.
You're the reason i love losing sleep.
When you're a little kid, you never think that you'll die. I mean, death is just some obscure, esoteric thing that you see on TV or read about in a book. Then one day, you realize what it really is. Then nothing is ever the same again. From that day on, you're fucked.
I want to be the girl that
changed everything. The girl that
made a difference, the girl
that gave you a story to tell.
Maybe I'm smiling and happy all the time
Because I'm trying to hide something else.
Emotion is my middle name.
Somewhere in my heart
with you in the summer rain.
I found everything that I could ever want wrapped up in something I could never have.
Our days would be happier if we gave people a little bit of our heart rather than a piece of our mind.
I remember driving in your car, the speed so fast it felt like I was drunk. City lights lay out before us. Your arms felt nice wrapped around my shoulder, and I had a feeling that I belonged. I had a feeling I could be somebody.
In a different time or place the words could make more sense.
You were standing on the hood of the car, singing out loud when the sun came up. And I knew it wasn't right, but it felt so good.
Over the past year, I've learned so much about love and life. Even if I could, I would never take back all the things I've done that brought me here, to this moment.
He's just a boy who doesn't know what's in front of him, and she's just a girl who never learned how to let go.
God, I've missed your smile. I just remembered how good it feels to see you looking at me.
they just dont understand.
this feeling isnt as easy
to deal with
than most people think.
dont tell me it will be alright
because right now, its not.
hoping for the best, but not holding my breath
it was always your smile
that got me through that year
I wanna be everything you need
the every sight you see
the closest thing to epidemic
slightly your disease
a love without a cure
no uncertain for sure
the closest thing to alcohol
that calls you back for more
I wrote you letters but I forgot to mention that
I'm a wreck, I'm a mess, you're a stranger.
Watch your face fade away
Now I'm stuck here
Please don't lose hold of me out there
i'll never let you stand alone.
you'll always have my hand to hold.
our lengthy talks will never get old.
your gonna change the world you know?
well its the small things you do,
that keep me from falling through this hole.
yeah its the quiet things you say,
that make me wanna keep everything this way,
and i know that when the time come
you wont let me break
You never really stop
missing him or loving him,
you just store it in the back of your heart
in hope that someday you'll use it.
why do we have to be so damn complicated?
i made you my fucking world...
I'm always wondering why the right words never came out.
What you feel only matters to you. It's what you do to the people you love. That's what matters. That's the only thing that counts.
This could break my heart or save me. Nothing's real until you let go completely. So here I go with all my thoughts I've been saving. So here I go with all my fears weighing on me.
And just remember, you could've had me.
I hope you know that you were my best friend. Tonight I said goodbye, but I should have said more. Thanks for the best time of my life.
In the heat of the conversation it was said, "I've got all these good intentions. I just don't have the time." We all wish for more and more hours in a day. But I think it's safe to say we just need to breathe and slow down.
My heart still aches in sadness and secret tears still flow. What it meant to lose you, no one will ever know.
