We Got Married – Kim Hyun Joong and Hwang Bo

Before Kim Hyun Joong became Ji Hoo of Boys Over Flowers, he was part of the JoongBo couple of the Korean reality show, We Got Married. The concept of the show is to pair up famous Korean celebrities to show married life. Couples are given missions each week. Candid interviews of the participants are shown to reveal their thoughts and feelings about what they have experienced.

There are actually several couple-participants for the show but the JoongBo or Lettuce couple is the one that got really popular and was awarded the Best Couple Award. Here is their initial appearance:

Episode 9

Among the Boys Over Flowers (BOF) guys, Kim Hyun Joong/Ji Hoo is my favorite. Ji Hoo’s character in BOF is always dignified and in some instances, stoic. That is why his amused expression and smiles towards Jan Di are always something to be treasured.

To my surprise, the real character of Kim Hyun Joong as shown in We Got Married is a far cry from Ji Hoo and instead is quite similar to Goo Jun Pyo’s character (as portrayed by Lee Min Ho in BOF). Always quite funny with Hwang Bo in their scenes together, I find their segment quite interesting more than that of the other couples. I do not know how he did it but Hyun Joong has child-like innocence as well as the mature outlook of a guy with a good head on his shoulder which is really quite refreshing considering that he is quite popular via his being part of the hugely popular SS501 band.

Here is one of the JoongBo/Lettuce couple hilarious moments together:
