[Exclusive] ′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.
