MBC has issued an official press release on the addition of new couple Yook Sungjae and Joy to “We Got Married,” revealing why they cast them for the show and announcing the air date of their first episode.
BTOB‘s Yook Sungjae is currently enjoying high popularity as the lovable Gong Taekwang on “Who Are You – School 2015,” and this motivated MBC to cast the ‘it-idol’ for the show. Fans can expect to see more of his masculine side as a caring husband through “We Got Married.”
Red Velvet recently had a successful comeback with the chart-topping “Ice Cream Cake,” and Joy stood out to the “We Got Married” staff with her bubbly yet mysterious image. Born in 1996, she is one year younger than her on-screen partner Yook Sungjae.
The new couple met up for the first time on June 3, and the filming is currently taking place in Seoul.
Yook Sungjae and Joy’s first meeting will be featured in the June 20 broadcast of “We Got Married.”
