MBC held a press conference today for the revamped season of We Got Married, revealing a fresh cast of idols ready to play the lovefool. Joining the new roster is singer Jung Joon Young, who will be coupled with Rooftop Prince star Jeong Yumi, while pop pianist Yoon Han will “marry” The Birth of a Family‘s Lee So Yeon.
A-Pink’s Son Na Eun also returns with her virtual husband, SHINee singer Taemin (who was represented by a cardboard cutout during the event!).
At the September 11 conference, producer Sun Hye Yoon revealed that producers decided to revamp their selection process for the show, noting that the previous episodes felt “boring” and staged. He explained: “This time the casting team looked at how sincere they can be to each other, how seriously they saw marriage or dating, and how freely they were able to express themselves to each other. These new couples are so good that I think they should get married off-screen!”

Can “Taeun” compete? Son, 19, teased that viewers should expect even deeper chemistry between her and XX-year-old Taemin. “Because we’re both busy with our schedules, we don’t see each other very often, but we do keep in contact,” she said. “I have special feelings. I hope we can continue to be close and have fun this season.”
