Why Lee Jong Hyun and Gong Seung Yeon Left We Got Married Suddenly?

After only 5 months of virtual marriage, Lee Jong Hyun and Gong Seung Yeon left We Got Married suddenly, netizens are curious with the sudden leave because they were on the peak of their virtual marriage and closer than ever. Many are speculating the possibility of them having real attraction with each other hence they decided to leave the show. When I read the article, I rolled my eyes and sighed. Can we please stop the delusional thoughts for once? Jong Hyun and Seung Yeon might seemed close and very lovey-dovey but WGM is a virtual marriage show for heaven sake, they are being paid to act like that with each other.

Jong Hyun and Seung Yeon are both actors and understand very well how they must act in this show, not to mention the writer and PD also guided them with the concept. In my opinion, Jongyeon couple is blatantly fake, their vibe is similar to Nam Goong Min and Hong Jin Young couple. Yes they are being lovey-dovey and overly sweet with each other but it’s all just an act, both are working hard to entertain us a a sweet couple and I respect them for that. And don’t get me wrong, I like this couple but the probability of them dating in real life is definitely zero.

They might follow each other’s Instagram and said they are friends outside the show but in reality they probably just meet around 8 times for the whole show. Other than to train these actor’s acting skill, WGM is also a great vehicle to increase their popularity and it works very well for Seung Yeon, I believe I saw lots of her face lately even in a shopping mall of my country, I think she became the face of a new Korean cosmetic brand or something. Jong Hyun is popular already with CNBLUE but he often overshadowed by the other members like Yong Hwa hence the WGM stint is his chance to shine as an individual. He is indeed a charming and talented guy.

Anyway, I think it’s not strange for a WGM couple to leave suddenly, it happened often before and the show’s rating is pretty bad hence the PD just decided to add a new couple to spice things up. Jongyeon couple is sweet and entertaining but I feel bored after several episodes, Jong Hyun obviously tried to reenact the cheesy lines from Song Jae Rim, however it gets repetitive after a while. They are still a beautiful couple though, their visual is daebak! I wish all the best for their future works. What do you think about this couple? Fake or real deal?

  1. I don’t find this couple to be similar to NGM and HJY couple. Being affectionate isn’t reason enough to group them together. Their personalities were so different. And Jonghyun wasn’t trying to be Jae Rim. He was being the Busan man that he is. Because there were no conflicts, some might say there wasn’t enough depth to their relationship. This would have easily been rectified had they been given more time. Their tenure was too short. Nevertheless, I found them enjoyable to watch, with all the teasing, cringe-worthy moments and their thoughtfulness/consideration towards each other. I was properly entertained throughout. As to the couple being fake, I wouldn’t say that either. It’s a freaking show, we all know that. To me this is just like watching a movie or a drama. As long as they look believable on screen( which they did), they’re real. Because that serves the purpose of the show. They definitely had great chemistry. What really is outisde the confines of the show, is irrelevant.

  2. Also, I’m not sure why they left the show so soon. My best guess would be CNBLUE’s comeback and the subsequent promotional activities and her drama.

    1. I strongly agree with your opinion, this pair has a charisma that is different from the others, their gaze, their skinship, I do not feel Jonghyun want to copy jaerim. maybe they were busy with their activities, whatever the reason I hope they will have a real relationship. wkwkw i really like this couple

  3. I just want to give opinion from neutral side. Before watching WGM I don’t know who is Lee Jong Hyun, I just know Yong Hwa (because I watch him in You’re Beautiful). I don’t know about CNBLUE too (now I know them and loves the music after watching Jong Hyun in WGM. Also with Gong Seung Yeon I really don’t know about her. First of all is my first time watching We Got Married. I watching them from episode 4th and after that I really falling love with they chemistry. For me I think they are relly sincere and honest with there feelling and acting. As I know both Jonghyun and Seungyeon are new in acting but all I can said you can feel they chemistry through their eyes and I am as newbie is this show can feel there feeling and chemistry. They romance make me always put big smile after watching it, I really feel there affection is mutual and real. I also read about fanbase Jonghyun in CNBLUE about his acting in WGM is fake and he just acting based on script but all I know this man is so blunt, he can’t lie and very honest about his feeling (typical busan man) and he seems not like doing for fan service. As I can say about Jonghyun is maybe people doesn’t know his romance side with woman, and man if they meet with someone woman that match and compatible they will show another side or part from him that never been know before as Jonghyun said in WGM “people can change depend who is someone behind”. He really sweet, gentle and romantic now I can say I became fans of CNBLUE because him in WGM. How he treat Seungyeon really melting every girl. And for Seungyeon she is so mature, she just 23 (22 is her age), but she can give vibe a really downearth girl with warm heart. I think she match with jonghyun, and I belive they attract each other through the show. I just give my opinion now because they show was over I will always support theam each other and I will happy if someday they will be a couple in real life. I hope many fans and knetizel will be more open about they idol dating. Last but not least I can said that Lee Jong Hyun and Gong Seung Yeon are the most natural and realistic couple in WGM history, I try to watch another couple like Song Jae Rim & Kim So Eun, Yongwha and Seohyun SNSD and BTOB Sungjae and RV Joy but nothing can compare they sweetness and chemistry.

    1. I totally agree with what you are saying. I sincerely hope that they can become a couple in real life. And hopefully they can reappear again in this show Keeping my ginger crossed that they will. May God blessed both of them

    2. true thattttttttttttttttttttttttttt i felt exactly the same. they are the first wgm couple i watch and i love them so much

    3. Very true, actually shipping for both of them. As both are from same field they can support each other very well and understand each other truly. FIGHTING FOR BOTH OF THEM AND HOPE BOTH DO WELL IN THEIR PRIVATE AND PROFESSIONAL LIFE.

    4. It is my 1st time watch WGM because of SY who casting Are You Human Too. Accidentally I watched the WGM in youtube when I’m searching for SY drama AreYou Human Too. Then I started to watch the Full episode of gonglee couple as their chemistry make my day whenever I watched them in WGM even I don’t understand what are they talking about because of no subtitle in YouTube…I dunno JH at all but I like how he teasing and interact with SY. I hv a same feeling like you whenever I watch this gonglee couple in WGM . They make me hv a big smile and silly smile even I dun understand their language. I am glad that I got to know that I could watch the English subtitle via gonglee global . I fall for this couple madly and keep repeating watch it. It’s too sad to know that they unfollowed each other when I started to follow their Instagram… nobody knows the answers y….I do hope they will be together in future as I feel both of them really compatible and match each other. Both is so innocent and treat each other good. I can feel JH fall in love with SY during the show …

  4. Please bring them back. I really love them. It will now be the same anymore in WGM without them Furthermore I felt it’s ok to have real feeling between them as I assume the producer should allow this to happen. It add more audiences to this type of show

  5. I got so surprised by the few number of episodes that it made me a little bit doubtfull. To me, since the episode where they met Jonghyun’s family it all started to fall apart. He seemed to be caring for Seungyeon before, however he seemed so fake from then on that it was even hard for me to watch. I kept saying to myself that something was wrong and that in best of options he was only trying to ‘hold his feelings in’ so he would not fall in love in real life (sigh). I don’t know, it was all really sad because Seungyeon seemed to be working hard to be natural and to show her emotions in the last episodes, while Jonghyun just gave up for some unknown reason. After all, they still made my heart flutter and I’m glad I watched them. From now on I’ll keep an eye on both CNBlue’s and Seungyeon’s works.

  6. If I read your article you seemed take extremely on one side. I don’t watch WGM, I only watch it because of this couple. However I getting to know WGM concept. It is the same with another variety show, yes it does scripted but do all of it? If you watch RM or other variety, is it allll of it scripted? Their reactions? Sorry but if I watch gonglee WGM, I also watch Henry Yewon episode even only one episode. Do you think JH feel the same towards Yewon? No. If you rewatch the scene when JH made sign for SY in airport, he made that heart himself and even Yonghwa looked at him weirdly, ‘what is he doing?’. I also look for reference of JH. According to his friends(atm it’s Minhyuk n Choa) he’s not the typical who being nice with girls easily. I’m agree with Ana who said JH’s affection towards SY isn’t the same anymore but it was after they play water fight in the rooftop. I speculate it was during their lasts episode when they have vacation in Jeju. (Perhaps) their management aware that their affection are crossed the line and feeling affectionate for real so they warn them to do so and to not act it out in the screen. I myself support both of them if they date irl I wish they make it until marriage but it’s so pity when there are fans that don’t like they together so they bash each other.

  7. @all Thanks for all of your insightful opinion! This article is purely a subjective opinion from the writer who have watched WGM since season 2 and I believe everyone is entitled for his/her opinion. Whether there is any “real” feelings involved, we will never know. Show business is tough industry, don’t expect people who works in that industry will have the same mindset as normal people like us, they meet and connect with dozens of attractive people everyday, finding love is not a challenge for them. Being in WGM means certain exposure in mainstream media for several months, a good way for public recognition. Eventually, it’s all about business and recognition for these people.

    With all these strong supports, I believe Jong Hyun and Seung Yeon had done their best as a virtual couple in WGM and we should respect their work by keep supporting them as an individual 🙂

  8. Well, I’ve watched about 8 to 10 different couples until now. In my personal opinion they(Every couple that I’ve watched) definitely have personal feelings for each other but the trend for Koreans these days seems to be getting married within their 30s. Because of it they don’t want to take it to higher stage in real relationship. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy life anyway? I also heard that their agency doesn’t allow the Idols and Actors/Actresses to date publicly. it’s more strict for Idols I guess. So in the Brown-Eyed couple case, I think they do love each other not as a couple I guess but it is definitely love to care for each other. If I was Jonghyun, I would have said the very exact comments to Seung yeon. So I don’t think he was doing the same thing that Jae Rim did, he was just saying things that came from his mind. That kind of people does exist you know(me). As for their sudden retreat from WGM, no one actually knows the reason behind it. But I guess that their schedule got busy. Seung Yeon probably got an exam, filming and other stuffs to attend to. Jong hyun probably got to go to tour and would not be in Korea for a long time. That is probably why the WGM staffs stopped their filming. Anyway, hope is the best thing that God ever created. For those who believed the couples in this show is true, I don’t blame you. Because I believe it to. I always hoped that all the casts before until now can be something special. I guess someone got to show the example first to others. I’ll be waiting and anticipate that kind of couple to exist Even once shall be enough.

  9. For me, it’s too cheesy to the point that Jonghyun looks acting well. But for me the girl was maybe really fell a bit to Jonghyun.
    The only couple that really looks real and not faking it was the YongHyun couple and the YYcouple. The both pairs are really just doing what they felt.

  10. JH and SY are has great chemistry. Totally, disagree about JH copying JR.
    I think the reason they left is because CNblue is planning for a comeback at that time and WGM has boosted SY’s career.
    I actually feel their feelings are becoming real- SY’s to comfortable with skinship and JH’s becoming more and more expressive.

  11. we know WGM this is just a reality show so they act according to what the show wanted them to do. we know already jonghyun is now currently dating jiesuu.probably the reason why jonghyun and seung yeon unfollowed each other bcoz of this issue. as an avid follower of GONGLEE couple im also hurt .. i hope we fans moved on. seung yeon is too young to fall in love seriously she finds a perfect man for her in the near future. the show ended successfully with the span of 5 mos.

  12. I watched the serie because of them. They should be back. We can see their attraction in their eyes. They look such a cute couple together.
