After endless rumors and speculation, the final member of the new MBC “We Got Married” couple was finally revealed today. Actor Lee Jang Woo, currently starring in KBS drama “Smile Donghae,” will pair with T-ara’s Ham Eun Jung to take over the enormously popular Goguma Couple (Seo Hyun and Yong Hwa) for the next season of WMG.
The two started filming for the show today, according to local media, but MBC has not made anything official yet. “Lee Jang Woo is confirmed to be T-ara Eun Jung’s husband on WMG. But perhaps, no one is commenting on it because the production crew does not want to reveal it yet,” an official from MBC told local media. “Lee Jang Woo and Eung Jung look like a perfect match. I’m sure the producers thought a lot about it but I personally think the two look great together,” the official added. Up until today’s report, rumors abounded that Eun Jung’s “Dream High” cast mate Kim Soo Hyun or actor Kim Young Kwang would play her husband.
Eun Jung said through her agency, “I would like to work on this show as if I’m really married, just like Hwang Jung Eum did. But at the same time, I want to make it more fun and different from the past couples.” Eun Jung made her first acting debut in 1995 through KBS youth drama “A New Generation of Adults.” She also starred in SBS drama “Coffee House” and KBS drama “Dream High.”
Lee Jang Woo now plays the role of Do Jin in popular KBS drama “Smile Donghae,” which is enjoying a 40% TV rating. He was a member of singing group “24/7” before debuting as an actor in 2006 through MBC drama “90 Days, Falling in Love Days.” He’s also starred in MBC sitcom “Tae Hee, Hye Kyo, Ji Hyun” and KBS drama “Three Brothers.”
