The truth behind ‘We Got Married’ casting decisions

News about the behind the scenes casting process that MBC’s We Got Married uses has recently been revealed to the public.

On the latest broadcast, 2PM’s Nichkhun told f(x)’s Victoria that he had told the production staff he wanted to be on We Got Married with her. Since then, viewers have been wondering whether personal preferences played a significant impact on the casting of couples on the show.

A representative stated,
“In Victoria’s case, Nichkhun’s wish played a big part. Also, in 2AM’s Jo Kwon and Brown Eyed Girls’ Ga-in’s case, they both said each other’s name in the casting interview… Jo Kwon and Ga-in were each asked to list three people they wanted as their partners, and both named each other on this list.“

However, the “Yongseo couple” was a different case. SNSD’s Seohyun didn’t have anyone in particular that she wanted as her partner. Similarly, CNBLUE’s Jung Yonghwa didn’t have anyone in particular that he wanted as a partner either. As a result, they were “stuck” together.

Well, in retrospect, aren’t we glad the production staff decided to match the two?
