Let me start off by getting the pink elephant in the room out of the way – I do not get Lee Hong Ki‘s hair. At all. No clue what the hell happened to him (zapped by lightning? got styling tips from No Min Woo circa the Full House 2 days?) or why he thought to leave the house looking like that, but it’s atrocious and a blight on his head. Other than that, Hong Ki is always adorable. The two couple cast of We Got Married: Global Project attended the press conference for show yesterday with Lee Hong Ki arriving with his onscreen wife Japanese actress Fuji Mina, while 2PM‘s Taecyeon brought along his Taiwanese singer-actress bride Gui Gui (Wu Ying Jie). I’ve been following along with only Taecyeon and Gui Gui’s coupling since I love both of them whereas Fuji Mina is about as bland and talent-limited as they come in the Japanese gravure market. The show airs in early April and the cast has been diligently filming for the past few weeks. I’m assuming its a set run rather than ongoing with the coupling to end when the time is right. During the press conference, Gui Gui teased that her favorite 2PM member was Nickhun which got Taecyeon all riled up until she admitted it was teasing and she was very happy to work with Taecyeon oppa. Lee Hong Ki said that his involvement only came because it was the international edition with the idea of cross-cultural marriage otherwise he wouldn’t have done the show. Taecyeon was asked about Gui Gui and he confessed she was the most beautiful when she greeted him every morning with a beaming smile. Awwww, so true dat. Other than Lee Hong Ki’s hairstyle (which rather overwhelms the entire view), the cast looked totally gorgeous at the press conference. I find Gui Gui and Taecyeon especially matching, him with the sleek and well-tailored black suit and white t-shirt and her with an all-white strapless mini-dress. They totally could be headed to a cocktail party for the rich and beautiful. MBC also released a teaser video of this show which shows the two sets of couples interacting in various interesting settings and seemingly having a great time. I still don’t know how they are communicating, though I believe Lee Hong Ki speaks Japanese so that makes it easy for him to talk with Fuji Mina, but Taecyeon and Gui Gui are probably on their own with a mixture of English, Chinese, and Korean. I hope this is a hit and more international couplings emerge in the future just to keep shaking things up.
