Eric Nam and Solar make good progress in their relationship on the June 25 episode of MBC’s “We Got Married.”
The couple enjoys their date with the MAMAMOO girls, who have come to pay a surprise visit.
The five spend time together playing games, and Eric Nam ends up having to give Solar a kiss on the cheek as penalty for losing. In reality, this was part of the plan of the sly wing-women who cheated in order to initiate physical contact between the couple.
Always the gentleman, Eric Nam asks Solar whether she would like to be on the giving or receiving end of the kiss, and she chooses the latter.
Solar shuts her eyes tightly as Eric Nam carefully closes in and kisses her on her cheek.
During the interview, Solar shares, “My mind went blank. I’m not one to show physical displays of affection in front of people, so I felt shy.”
Eric Nam states, “I still felt shy even if I knew it would happen eventually. Now that it’s happened, we seem closer and more comfortable with each other.”
The couple eventually sends off the three MAMAMOO girls and spends their first night with each other in the pension house.
Seemingly restless, Eric Nam points to the bed and says, “This feels strange.”
He and Solar lay down and wish each other a good night, but Eric Nam finds it difficult to fall asleep and turns to lay facing her.
He later expresses his thoughts about their first night together and says, “It felt weird to be lying next to each other. I couldn’t sleep. I was thinking about how it was like we were a couple and this was really our married life.”
Meanwhile, Solar shares, “I could feel his gaze. I was embarrassed so I just kept facing forward.”
