The new couple for the international version of MBC’s We Got Married has been decided to be FT Island’s Lee Hong Ki (23) and the Japanese actress, Fujii Mina (25).
On February 22, a representative of Lee’s agency told TV Report, “Lee Hong Ki and Fujii Mina will become a new couple for We Got Married-International. Currently, they’re currently in the middle of shooting.”
As stated above, Fujii Mina is a Japanese actress who made a special appearance in Channel A’s Ms. Panda and Mr. Hedgehog, SBS’s King of Dramas, and KBS 2’s drama Another Wedding.
They’ve become a global couple which the woman is older. Previously, Lee said on various TV shows, “I don’t care about the age and I’m for the girls who look innocent, yet have voluptuous figure.” His remark draws particular attention since Fujii Mina pretty much lives up to his ideal type.
The international version of We Got Married is a joint project between MBC and Sony Pictures Entertainment and has the same format as the original version. The show is to be aired in 41 different countries including Korea, China, Japan, Taiwan, India, and Australia.
Before this couple, 2PM’s Taec Yeon and Taiwanese “idol” star Wu Ying Jie have been decided to be another new couple for the show.
The program will have its first broadcast on the first week of April and it will have its production conference on March 28 on YouTube.
