Bosses at We Got Married have have announced they will be keeping Oh Yeon Seo in the show, despite her relationship with Lee Jang Woo.
Although reps for the actress initially admitted the two were a couple, her publicist at at Wellmade STARM now tells IdolWow!: “They are close, however it’s too early to say they are in a relationship. They have spent time together and are fond of each other.”
The turnaround comes just after producers on the MBC reality series yesterday met with the 25-year-old and her management to discuss her future on the show, which sees her ‘married’ to MBLAQ singer Lee Joon, 24.
A spokesman for the fourth series confirms: “After initial reports that Oh Yeon Seo and Lee Jang Woo were an item, the producers met with Ms. Oh in person to get the truth.
“According to her, the rumours are baseless. The Lee Joon and Oh Yeon Seo couple will continue to air on We Got Married.”
On January 3 the Sports Seoul newspaper broke the news that Oh was dating her Oh Ja Ryong is Coming co-star Lee Jang Woo, 26.
The pair were photographed on December 26, laughing and flirting after a restaurant date.
“They have grown close over the months,” a source said of the relationship. “They’re really happy together and have a lot in common. Filming the show and being on the same schedule has really brought them close.”
Shortly after the photos were released, a rep for Oh told IdolWow!: “It’s still early days. They have been a couple for a month and are enjoying spending time together.”
