My goodness, it appears this will be the year of the K-paparazzi. Following on the heels of Kim Tae-hee and Rain are Oh Yeon-seo and Lee Jang-woo, the lead couple of current MBC evening daily drama Oh Ja-ryong is Going. Oh Yeon-seo’s agency gave a very vague and roundabout answer, stating that it’s difficult to say the two are “officially dating” at this stage, but they very well could become a couple in the future if things go well. Uh, oookay.
All eyes, however, are turned not to this couple but rather Oh Yeon-seo and Lee Joon (of group MBLAQ), who are currently part of popular MBC reality show We Got Married. What a perfect dilemma for MBC: they love the attention being brought to Oh Ja-ryong since it’s struggling quite a bit in the ratings department, but this pretty much kills We Got Married – or at least a third of it. Serves you right, MBC.
Personally, I feel bad for Lee Joon. It’s gonna be pretty difficult for this couple to continue their reality stint, which means he’s out of a job because his partner screwed up. Things were just starting to get interesting for this couple, and lots of tongues went wagging when Oh Yeon-seo picked Lee Joon over Lee Jang-woo at the MBC Drama Awards a few days ago. Turns out that was “as a courtesy” to Lee Joon, according to Oh’s agency. I hope Lee Joon wasn’t starting to fall for his reality show wife… Faithful We Got Married fans will also be disappointed that Lee Jang-woo and his own partner last season, Eun-jung of T-ara, can’t be shipped any longer. Whew, what a tangle. In any case, I hope no one’s feelings get hurt for realsies and everyone enjooooys being paparazzi-ed!!
What do you think? Surprised, disappointed, excited, bored? Please share!
