    I actually find the JoonSeo couple least interesting

    Woojung couple was the last of the WGM format couple that appealed to me the most. Somehow when I look back, I kind of really DO miss that.

    But now looking at this amped up variety component in WGM with the village, it’s certainly gotten more entertaining. Things are more funny and cute instead of lovey dovey romantic and cute. I’m okay with that. It’s a different atmosphere now.

    I believe that the WGM village is a result of the (still ongoing?) strike at MBC. The strike really affected the flow of  previous season(s) of WGM – and other MBC shows. With the village, MBC could control WGM better and save on production costs, too – less manpower to track the couples, less logistics issues, no more rental costs for their homes, and such.

    The problem, however, is that the main charm of WGM (for me, at least) was the way the couples were given an almost-free reign to adlib, adjust and adapt to complete their given mission – albeit through a (very loose) script. It was interesting watching (most) couples going through the processes of “courtship” and “marriage” : from the awkward first meeting to slowly getting to know each other, to (mostly) eventually being comfortable with each other, exclusively – all on their own.

    This season, I am beginning to lose interest – and I am a huge fan of Secret -  since the frequent meetings [presently] between the couples seemed ‘forced’ and ‘unnatural’ and the feel of WGM being scripted is more apparent. WGM now reminds me of a typical melodrama – Korean or otherwise.

    Then again, maybe I am losing interest BECAUSE I am a huge fan of Secret. The treatment by MBC to the beloved Sun Hwa – partnered with Park Hwi Soon for Pit-a-Pat, and now [annoying] Kwanghee for WGM – after her frequent appearances on the show (and even helping to ‘trick’ Nickhun in his first episode), is almost unforgivable. However, Park Hwi Soon would have made a better partner for her instead of [annoying] KwangHee. At least Hwi Soon would have worshipped and appreciated her more – going by Pit-A-Pat.

    Maybe I’ll give it another couple of episodes before deciding.
