Variety shows don’t interest me but if it did I’d probably be all over We Got Married just for the sheer pleasure of watching fake romance being sold as maybe real and wondering if fans actually get swept up in the make believe. I get the concept but find it really flawed with too high a probability to go off the tracks. Kim So Eun has been in the hot seat for the last few weeks, going from We Got Married darling for her sparkling chemistry with partner Song Jae Rim to public enemy number 1 after a series of interview faux pas so to speak.
It appears there is almost no in between it seems, one either likes Kim So Eun for her outspoken nature or can’t stand her for biting the WGM hand that’s making her popular.The whole thing hit a nadir last month with the breaking news that she may or may not be dating actor Song Ho Joon in real life, to which both sides vehemently denied it. The worst damage appears to be done in the realm of public opinion, with Kim So Eun remaining on WGM and going about her business. I actually think all of this publicity has been great for the show because in showbiz there’s no such thing as bad press.
