Korean idol Lee Joon of MBLAQ and actress Oh Yeon-seo will make their way down the aisle as the latest married couple on MBC’s variety show, “We Got Married.”
Officials with MBC confirmed Thursday that Lee and Oh will begin their make believe marriage in the fourth season of “We Got Married,” joining current couples Julien Kang and Yoon Se-ah and ZE:A Hwang Kwang-hee and Secret’s Han Sun-hwa.
“Lee and Oh will begin shooting later today and their first episode will air on September 15,” the MBC rep said, adding that the pair will replace Super Junior’s Lee Teuk and actress Kang Sora.
The official explained that Lee Teuk and Kang, who began their make believe marriage last October, will step down from the show to focus on their individual activities.
“We have been in discussions about their leave for quite some time since Lee Teuk plans on enlisting in the army later this year.”
Known as one of the comic idols after his appearance on MBC’s “Golden Fishery,” Lee Joon is a rapper in his five-member boy band MBLAQ (Music Boys Live in Absolute Quality). Outside of his group activities, he played the younger role of Rain’s character in the Hollywood film “Ninja Assassin” in 2009.
Lee has also starred in the teenage series “Jungle Fish 2″ (KBS, 2010) and in the film of the same name the following year. He also appeared in KBS’ sitcom “Sent From Heaven” early this year.
Oh started out in the entertainment industry as a singer for the band LUV in 2002. She later expanded her career into acting with roles in “H.I.T” (MBC, 2007), “King Sejong” (KBS, 2008), “The Great Merchant” (2010, KBS) and “Dong Yi – Jewel in the Crown” (2010, MBC).
She later rose to stardom after starring in KBS’ “Baby Faced Beauty” as the sister to actress Jang Nara and recently wrapped up shooting KBS’ weekend family drama “My Husband Got a Family.”
