Have any of you wondered where this trend started? I have been watching idol groups do the absolutely skin crawling “1+1 Gwiyomi (Cutie)” song so much that I started to wonder where this originated from. Most of Asia has caught the “Gwiyomi” disease, and is said to be a Gangnam Style rival in Asia. Let’s discover more about this song! I’m no expert on the subject matter, but I do have pretty good google-ing skills 😉 (Just watched a movie called “The Internship” last night so the Googliness rubbed off on me.)
Gwiyomi (Cutie) Song is released by a singer named Hari. The song was not a big hit upon release. The following is the English translation of the Gwiyomi Song based on the video above. Continue reading
We are introduced to a new couple this week. They are replacing Lee Joon and Oh Yeon Seo’s slot. These two are so cute in this episode, filled with adorable awkward hellos and shy smiles. I am so glad Jinwoon finally got a chance to be on this show because I really like him best in 2AM. He’s just so cute when his eyes disappear every time he smiles. As for Junhee, I have never seen any of her work. A little surprising considering she appeared in a few popular dramas. Maybe my taste for dramas is not that refined. She’s given me a good impression in this episode. She is awfully cute and both of them make an adorable couple.
A week before their We Got Married filming, there is a red mailbox placed at the door of the Gangnam Editor Office. A woman walks in but no one in the studio recognizes her. She collects the mission card (mail) from the mailbox and called out to someone. Junhee walks in and she looks radiant. The woman that collected her mail was her stylist. The mission card states that she is to prepare a gift for a husband-to-be and that she will be meeting him in a week’s time.
At Kwanghee and Sunhwa’s “home” (more like the home that they live in while filming the show) Sunhwa put her feet on Kwanghee’s lap as soon as she sits on the sofa. I bet these beautifully renovated houses would sell for a fortune once they are done filming there. That day was the day Kwanghee’s parents will be visiting the ‘newlyweds’. This has been informed to them earlier but a date was not confirmed. Kwanghee was only notified on the same day his parents were coming to visit.
This episode picks up from last week’s disastrous fish gutting. The carp comes out from the steamer looking delicious without a sign of torture that it has suffered which was inflicted by Kwanghee. There is a yummy spread on the table featuring the steamed carp. Both Kwanghee and Sunhwa (who was wearing the cutest cupcake bib) were seated at the table.
We Got Married is a South Korean variety (reality) show that pairs two Korean celebrities in a virtual marriage. I still cannot completely grasp the point of this show but yet I have been watching it for years. It is interesting how they are allowed to build a relationship that is partially scripted on TV, yet discouraged to have one when the cameras are off. Fans who love the pairings encourage the celebs to date outside of the show, but those that hate the pairing send threatening letters and what not to the celebs. Well I guess it is good for a show to have polar reactions from fans because it means that it is getting the attention it needs.
The show picks up from last week where Kwanghee and Sunhwa get their Tarot card readings for fun. Sunhwa asks about their compatibility and the two are ecstatic when the Tarot lady said that they have a deep connection.
