I’m super stoked for the arrival of We Got Married Global Edition season 2 with one of the couples being the highly likely to be hilarious together Kim Heechul of Super Junior and Puff Guo of Dream Girls. Of course they can swap war stories about being a member of a popular idol group, or they can borrow a page from last year’s hit pairing of Taecyeon of 2PM and Gui Gui playbook and have Heechul’s fellow SJ members show up to harass Puff to demand to know who Aaron Yan is. I find Heechul unpredictable and his 4D style makes for great reality television while Puff is way more entertaining in real life than any of her drama efforts, more tomboy with an aegyo streak. I think the two of them together will be hilarious in seeing how the communication transcends language barriers as well as tossing romance mores out the window. I can see Heechul being both like a husband and a really funny girlfriend to Puff. The other couple for this season is Key from SHINee and a Japanese model by the name of Yagi Arisa, but since the only SHINee member I know is Minho and Key is not Minho, that means I’ll have to pass on those two. It’s no fun watching WGM without a good feel for the participants since their onscreen antics are more fun if there is something to compare it to. I totally skipped last year’s second pair of Lee Hong Ki and Fuji Mina, but my newfounded love for Hong Ki is making me consider going back to marathon it. But I worry Fuji Mina will annoy me and thus my Hong Ki love will be diminished so maybe I’ll leave that one alone. The first official couple stills are out and I adored the Heechul-Puff set which are retro cute. The cast also held a press conference last week at MBC studios in Seoul and other than Heechul showing up in a suit that defies all fashion sense and sensibility, apparently it went swimmingly with both couples displaying a nicely built up camaraderie and chemistry.The show premieres the first week of April so mark your calendars.
How stunningly gorgeous Puff looks at this press conference is conversely how godawful Heechul looks. I love their polar opposites being on full display already. Heechul’s hand all over Puff in a very husbandly way is a nice jump start on their marital antics together.
