‘We Got Married’ Brings China and Korea Together
We Got Married is not only making its way into China, but will also be bringing China to Korea.
SMG Entertainment Channel, which aired the Chinese special of We Got Married, revealed through a news article, ‘The Chinese We Got Married is not just a simple co-production project; it was an opportunity for stars and youth from both countries to communicate with each other in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Korea and China. We expect MBC’s variety program to act as a nongovernmental diplomat.’
SMG Entertainment Channel is viewed by about 180 million viewers across Shanghai, Zhejiang, Fujian and Jiangsu, and even the preview for the Chinese We Got Married made issues across the net in various Chinese video websites and YouTube after it aired.
Shanghai Television, Shanghai’s TV Guide, featured We Got Married as its cover story, as the show was co-produced by MBC and SMG to celebrate 20 years of diplomatic ties between Korea and China. The magazine stated that the Chinese We Got Married would air on Valentine’s Day, February 14, and also listed interviews of the Chinese stars on the show and some reviews of the program.
Other newspapers in China also showed interest, saying, ‘Korea’s most popular variety show We Got Married has come to China’ and ‘Now you don’t have to wait for the Chinese subtitles for the Korean We Got Married. You can watch the Chinese We Got Married on Valentine’s Day’.
The episode that aired in China on February 14 will air in Korea on February 25.
Super Junior’s Kyuhyun and Chinese actress Lou Yixiao will be appearing as a pair along with the T-ara Hyo Min and Chinese singer Fu Xin Bo pair. Hyo Min and Kyuhyun were special guests, while the original panels Park Mi Sun, Kim Jung Min (Maslo) and Kim Na Young also appeared as commentators.
