"We Got Married" Dating Program Spin-off to Broadcast on Lunar New Year Holidays
“We Got Married” spin-off series on dating, “Exciting Shake” is set to begin broadcast on the Lunar New Year holiday. “Exciting Shake” is a new reality program focused on dating, from the same producer of “We Got Married,” PD Jung Sung Ho.
“Exciting Shake” will be a virtual dating program. Similar to “We Got Married,” celebrities will be paired with each other and their stories as couples will unfold throughout the course of the series. The program will premiere with four couples. Reports say “Exciting Shake” has already cast two of the four couples, but will only disclose the participants when the producers have finalized the cast.
“Exciting Shake” is attracting attention for being in the hands of Jung Sung Ho. The PD created “We Got Married” in 2008, and is the director behind Alex and Shin-ae, and Seo In Young and Crown J.
“We Got Married” has since gone on to cast idol stars in its second season, featuring 2AM’s Jo Kwon and Brown Eyed Girls’ Ga In, CN Blue’s Jung Yong Hwa and SNSD’s Seohyun, and 2PM’s Nichkhun and f(x)’s Victoria. Now on its third season, idols in the cast are T-ara’s Eunjung, who is paired with actor Lee Jang Woo and Super Junior’s Leeteuk, who is paired with actress Kang So Ra. This raised expectations that the new dating program may also feature idols, but the production team is cautious about any definite statement.
“Exciting Shake” is currently in the pilot stage and is scheduled to begin on MBC during the Lunar New Year.
