Now, I’ve never taken any interest in any asian variety shows, especially not We Got Married. I do not even know what the concept is about just that it is about a virtual couple and their married life. However, it was the buzz and hype of this edition that got me to notice it. I took notice of the occasional news here and there but I still didn’t really have the urge to watch it. It was only about an hour ago that something made me click the video and who knew it would get me sucked in! I’m only watching the Gui Gui and Taecyeon Ok story because Lee Hong Ki and Fujii Mina didn’t have the charisma to lure me in to believe that they are a couple. Oh, and Taecyeon is much more attractive to look at! (Lee Hong Ki has got to do something with his hair!) And that is always a plus! Ahahahhahas!
I love cross-country productions – not that I have seen many though – because I like watching the differences and diversity between the different cultures. I really like that there is a language barrier Gui Gui and Taecyeon whereas Lee Hong Ki and Fujii Mina do not have that barrier as they are both able to speak Korean. It is so adorable to see Gui Gui and Taecyeon’s way of communication which consists of English, though Gui Gui’s is no where near as proficient as his (I’m actually really amazed by the proficiency with his English!), part Korean, part Chinese and a lot of hand gestures. It is adorably to watch them communicate with each other and that is one of the main reasons that brings this couple to have an attractive charisma. It is also quite sweet to see them understand each other, like when she points to something he understands what she is trying to get at. I just love that communication doesn’t hinder them as a couple. As for the cultural differences, it doesn’t appear to affect them as of yet but I am hoping that their cultural differences is something that they will have to face.
I’m not going to say that there isn’t any awkwardness between Gui Gui and Taecyeon because there is but you can see that as they are familiarising themselves with each other that awkwardness between them is disappearing. With time you can see that they are growing comfortable and relaxed with each other, and actually gives off a loving newly wed atmosphere about them. I am actually finding myself loving them as a couple; they just appear so sweet and genuine with each other. There is no denial that these two are raining with chemistry which will be sure to build as time goes on.
When I am watching Gui Gui and Taecyeon together, I feel really light and feathery because their relationship appears to be progressing very bubbly. They are adorable as a couple and really bubbly to watch. I love how Gui Gui holds back and how Taecyeon is such a gentleman. I just love how Gui Gui is able to just immediately click with Taecyeon! Plus, her smile is just really genuine and full of sugar! These two are going to be such a joyous to watch!
The biggest difference between WGM and dramas is that in dramas actors a given a character to play in which that character is written to have a specific personality and energy. However, here, Gui Gui and Taecyeon are able to be themselves and show off their personalities which is what makes this so genuine to watch despite knowing that this whole WGM relationship is staged. They are actually trying to get to know each other and they don’t have to be someone else to do so; they are free to be themselves. They are able to express their own personality and who they are as a person, and so far Gui Gui and Taecyeon appear to be a very matching couple!
I am really excited to see Gui Gui and Taceyeon’s development and chemistry! I am really eager to see their wedding and honeymoon! Ahahahahas! I love these two already!
