2PM member Taecyeon and Kara member Nicole are in line to appear in MBC TV ‘We Got Married Global Edition’ variety show.
The management agencies for both 2PM and Kara revealed on January 30th, “We are currently in discussions regarding Taecyeon and Nicole’s participation in MBC TV ‘We Got Married Global Edition’. Nothing has been set in stone as yet.”
MBC TV had revealed last August, “MBC TV and Sony Pictures Entertainment Network Asia (Sony Network) have exchanged a declaration of intent to prepare production and broadcast for a global edition of ‘We Got Married’,” and the ambitious plans attracted much attention from viewers.
If realized, the global edition will be aired in 41 countries including China, India, Australia, and many others. The format will be the same as the Korean version where two paired couples will carry out a ‘make-believe’ marriage life. It will hope to pair up two people from vastly different cultural backgrounds and see how they try to adapt to each other’s lifestyles. Taecyeon had attended school in America in the past and is fluent in English, while Nicole is fluent in Japanese, and thus they have become prime candidates to appear on the pilot season.
A Chinese version of the show was aired last Valentine’s Day to mark the 20th year of diplomatic relations between China and South Korea, and was a big hit with viewers. Thus, there is optimism that the global edition will meet with an equal or an even more explosive reaction from fans all around the world when it is aired.
