Gong Seungyeon “We Got Married scripted? It’s 100% real”
Although SBS drama Heard It Through The Grapevine (HITTG) has allowed her to take her first steps in the acting industry, it is MBC’s We Got Married (WGM) that allowed Gong Seungyeon to rise in popularity. It is a rarity for a rookie actress to be casted in the usually star-studded show, and even more so when Seungyeon’s name appeared as number one in various search engines.
In the recent interview with Xportsnews, Seungyeon talked about her experiences shooting WGM. “I didn’t expect to receive so much attention.” Seungyeon’s virtual husband, CNBLUE’s Lee Jonghyun, has showcased his manly “Busan Namja” image on various variety shows previously, but for Seungyeon, her initial image of him was the opposite. “The first time I met him I thought ‘He is so pale.’ His face was fair, and his thinking was very innocent/naive. Although he has a manly charm, but he can also be very cute and do aegyo. Although I can’t explain it fully, but he has a cute side which he only expresses to me.”
But WGM is not free from negative feedback, especially regarding whether the show was reality or scripted. Regarding this, Seungyeon explained, “There is no script at all. 100% real. The production team will ask us ‘What do you want to do today? Just do whatever you want to do.’ Even for what we do for our dates we will decide ourselves. Before I started WGM I thought it will be just a job, but in fact, after my first filming with Jonghyun both of us were really shocked and surprised.”
