    if they really dating do Jtune still put Joon on those awkward situation?making him stay? Jtune is not stupid people. they will surely withdraw him right away! but they didn’t. hating and bashing her,, it her own image that take a toll. cant you just support Joon. watching him every week is enough for me!! OYS work hard too you know.. so i will support joon!! thats why i will support Joonseo till the last ep.

  • Celiane

    This is a reality show so as far as I am entertained I’ll keep watching joonseo, and since oh yeon seo has personally declared the rumors fake for me there is no problem at all. Yours was one of the most rational analisys in the web. Moreover oh yeon seo agency has invested more than the 50% of the founds in the drama where she and leejang woo are acting, this could explain why they were so reclutant to make clear that they were not dating and it had to be directly oh yeon seo to make a statement.

    • candy love

      i agree with you..however, WGM still just a variety show, Yeon seo still play her roles with her best..

      • Celiane

        And that is sufficent for me, I watch WGM to spend a funny hour of my time just like when I watch a movie…until when I’ll find it funny I’ll keep watching scandal or not scandal :)

      • bishal

        i love your comments man.

  • bluemoon2010

    “Do you agree with the producers’ choice in allowing her to stay, or are in in favor for her departure?” For me, I definitely aggree with their choice in allowing her to stay… Thank you very  much WGM producers. I always wait for Saturdays just to watch the joonseo couple!!! Thank you. :)

    I ask myself if OYS was really dating LJW why will Joon and his company let him stay on the show? I don’t think Joon’s company will be stupid enough to let him go throw with this. Any way I like that joonseo couple are staying so I can watch them and is the only reason why I watch this show(we got married).

  • takasar1

    nice article but; “Previously a struggling actress due to a series of unsuccessful or minor roles, We Got Married allowed Yeon-seo’s popularity to explode” is not correct and the author would do well to check up on facts before he/she makes such statements. her popularity is mainly a result of the very highly rated drama, “unexpected you”, where she played a role that made a her a national icon, the bratty ‘nation’s sister-in-law’ in this case.

    “Authentically fake”… isn’t that sort of an oxymoron?

  • inxomnia

    What is unique and evermore misleading about WGM is that its like the whole industry is in on the act. It defines their popuarity so much that even on other shows, they will still be linked to their partner; idol mates confessing their jealousy; meeting parents; other celebrities asking about their partner and expecting them to answer on behalf of the other… Its basically a public relationship though sometimes there is no relationship, just a virtual one. If the idols do end up dating, its a nice disguise and a safe way to date. If there isn’t that relationship, its a con because you’re putting on an act, and just like a public relationship, people will always link you to the other and suspect you to have dated each other because that would be the reasonable presumption given your public display of affection aka via tv.

  • http://twitter.com/#!/shahirashera Shahirashera

    I actually agree with her staying. The problem is just people are far fetching both the rumor & the show. You see, a picture worth a thousand words but most that go against her only view it in one perspective. But then when the supposedly video leaked, there was like.. nothing. One thing ticks me off is that, they easily blame the girl saying everything feels fake, awkward etc after the latest Saturday broadcast. While I enjoy all those fluff in WGM, I do realize it’s a show and most seems to forget this show is executed to make it believable thus categorized in ‘reality’ show. But I guess it’s become more as reality than a show itself for some people. I feel bad that her image is tainted because of this matter for she is a brilliant actress & I really enjoyed her work in My Husband Got a Family.

    I believe these are mere rumors …with no substance.  I like OYS and her fiesty/independant attitude…so much more attractive then cutesy..bing-bing fake personality. Will definitely support OYS and Joonseo.

  • Aslinn S

    Since I see this as a malicious smear campaign on a lovely gifted actress, I “agree with the producers’ choice in allowing her to stay” and would be outraged if rabid bullies won the day. Thanks WGM.. the Joonseo couple makes me smile after a long week.

  • sleepyneve

    Okay so here’s my stance on the WGM issue. It’s all over the place, but I hope it’s understandable. I accept that fans are angry. WGM doesn’t have a lot of requirements but one of them is to be single and not keeping with that requirement does obviously cause trouble. As odd as it is to say that people in WGM shouldn’t date outside of the show until it’s over, isn’t it also weird for the person on the other side of the relationship? For Oh Yeon Seo…let’s say she and Lee Jang Woo were dating…would he have not felt awkward knowing that she’d have to act all lovey dovey with some other guy, who was completely clueless that his partner was dating someone in real life? Dating outside of WGM just provides for a really awkward situation for the people involved on both sides. Why would anyone opt to go that route? Plus, with the contradictory statements from Oh Yeon Seo’s company, I can see why people believe it’s to keep her on the show so she can gain more exposure and that she is in fact dating him. We all know WGM is as much a promotional show as it is a variety show.  For the most part though, I believe most fans of the show don’t watch it for the reality of it all more so for entertainment. I mean I got a kick out of Lee Joon and Oh Yeon Seo since it was the first where there was a fangirl and idol in a virtual marriage together. I’m going to guess what really hits the fans that are complaining is the sincerity in it all…as in was Oh Yeon Seo just acting the part of a fangirl? Some people feel deceived in some sense. I think the alluring part of fake love lines for some is the idea that maybe some people’s feelings are sincere and that something could happen hence the shippers and fandom of WGM couples…and in Oh Yeon Seo’s situation, well..it’s no longer there for those that believe she is dating her co-star. Personally, I don’t see why she has to leave if she isn’t dating her co-star. Even if there were feelings between her and Lee Jang Woo, it happens right? Actors and actresses could feel something while working with others in a drama but sometimes it’s a temporary thing and/or doesn’t pan out. If she were however dating Lee Jang Woo then I would say she should leave. Just think of how much of a burden it would be for Lee Joon to have to continue in the show knowing full well she’s taken. It’d be so awkward and not the cute kind that we see when they’re together.

  • delta7757

    I agree with the MBC/WGM decision. WGA released statement said OYS and LJW both publicly denied  the rumors on the 4th. Secondly WGA also could find no evidence that OYS breached her contract. As far as I’m concerned the matter is closed and it’s time to move on and keep enjoying the Joonseo couple.Thirdly, I adored OYS in “Unexpected you” ..she’s a wonderful actress.

    PS ..Thanks for a rational and unbias article. Very rare when there’s been such a feeding frenzy.

  • http://twitter.com/MIVarela80 Iris C Bryan

    Am glad that WGM decided on letting OYS stay. I really enjoy all 3 couples and if Joonseo couple was gone it wouldn’t be the same. Each couple has contributed something very sweet and that’s why I enjoy WGM so much. And am very favorable towards the Joonseo couple. Thanks WGM. ♡♥♡♥♡♥

  • delta7757

    This was in reply to sleepyneve..not sure why it posted up…

    The day the BS started, Joons rep immediately and adamantly said he was not leaving the show to quell rumors that he was. I don’t believe Joons company would allow him to continue if there was a question. They’re probably remembering Rain’s defamation suit against Well Made Star in 2011, which he won. As far as the vid ..I saw 2 costars/friends w/ their faces fully exposed to a window talking to a 3rd person that the vid tried to edit out. BTW …I believe it genuine fangirling (lol) and love that OYS is one of Joons biggest fans.

  • Black_Plague

    How about putting ACTUAL celebrity couples in the show rather than ones pretending to be so? At times, it just looks terribly awkward and unreal. 

    Pretty sure WGM would salvage itself far better if that was the case – and give a huge slap in the face to the batshit fans that go angst that their beloved oppars are dating someone. 

    • kiimmiieee

      They did before, Kim Yong Jun & Hwang Jung Eum. Not sure how successful they were in the show but in interviews they said that it put a strain on the relationship.

        I was also under the impression that it put a strain on the crew because of certain fighting/tension etc…

    Just make the last episode for this couple.. fans will annoy if this couple still in WGM.. Maybe a new couple can make WGM more popular and achieve high rating.. (:

  • http://twitter.com/SouthernAuroras SouthernAuroras

    The only reason I watch WGM is for Joonseo…. so of course I agree w/ the WGM producers. Looking forward to next Saturday and for the media to stop harassing Oh Yeon Seo.

  • Sophia

    People need to get a grip – you know and i know the show is scripted and a complete fabrication for entertainment purposes only, so why is everyone getting their knickers in a twist? 
    People saying things like “Poor Lee Joon – he must be so hurt” – “Yeon Seo is terrible for doing this” the whole scandal is completely baffling, but then i’m not sure why i’m surprised of often scratching my head thinking “WTF” at many of the things netziens get hot and bothered about.

    • maptheseoul

      personally, i dont think people care about her dating outside of WGM, i think its the fact that she’s being paid to have this fake marriage and yet she’s trying to discreetly meet another guy in public, it makes her look super shady even if it wasn’t a date…i do feel bad for Lee Joon not because she ‘hurt’ him, but because if they got booted off the show, it’d be unfair since he did nothing wrong and he wouldn’t be making money. And also it hurts his image because he could’ve possibly been looked at as A. A home wrecker or B. a moron for not knowing. Might be just me, though.

  • maptheseoul

    even before this ‘scandal’ happened, i wasn’t a big JoonSeo fan. i hate how they’re always scheming against the other couples…i don’t get why they always want to cause drama; it seems like they’re only happy together at someone else’s misfortune.

       If you look at you tube of some of the past programmes..they are quite closely directed by the producers..maybe all those words about ‘revenge’ are what the producers think would show their being obsessive..a character which they want to highlight. To be fair, the couple has really never done anything bad although it does not look good for Yeon Seo to use words like ‘revenge’ so often..in fact the Kwanghee couple show themselves to be poor friends as they take every opportunity to bad mouth Yeon Seo in the private interviews.Amd Kwanghee and wife show their lack of intelligence more often than not.

    The problem is..Oh YeonSeo and Lee JangWoo are currently starring together as a cute couple whom a lot of Korean viewers- young and old – simply adore in a DAILY DRAMA,whereas WGM is a one-time during the weekend variety show. Prior to the scandal,viewers watching the OYS-LJW couple five times a week with all their cutesy moments would think “They would’ve made a cute real-life couple;look at that chemistry,oh well too bad she’s with LeeJoon now” etc but now post-scandal, watching the same couple is different when there’s that thought “oho..so they do LIKE each other for real,enough to hang out together multiple times out of the show at least”. And that takes away the edge from JoonSeo couple as the “weekend couple”, when the viewers are more used to these thoughts of OYS-LJW as a possible real couple as they watched the drama.It’s on the same channel for god’s sake.International viewers might not realize the importance of the whole OYS-LJW as a couple on a Daily Drama in this whole scandal,but I personally think it brings some sort of weight onto the whole thing. It’s different than the regular two-nights drama as the general public watches it day in and day out, and when people actually found out that there’s a possibility that a daily drama couple might be for real,it’s a different sort of fondness than that of a variety show couple,I guess. OYS’s agency messed up big time on this one.

  • brie w

    Of course I agree with the decision. Joonseo is usually the only couple I watch. I find Kwanghee obnoxiously loud, always sneering, often rude …often reminding me of certain gays on television throwing hissy fits. Bad mouthing strong women because their jealous.
    Joonseo fighting!

    This is probably, for me one, of the saddest things that happens in the industry. These dating scandals are really cruel, especially to the unknowing victim, the fact that they’re seen together doesn’t really mean they’re dating, they may be just out to grab a bite like what most friends do, people of the opposite sex can be friends too you know. It doesn’t mean when a man and a woman go out it already means they’re dating, we conclude and generalize too much and say what we want to say without thinking the consequences it might give to the people you’re pointing fingers at.

    *They’re humans too, please be aware of that.

  • Alessandra Sica

    Poor Yeonseo gets all this crap because of some crazy netizens and a stupid person who had to snoop into her private life. She said the rumors are false, so why keep bothering her. Just keep on watching WGM because it’s just an illusion, not reality.
