Eric Nam has been confirmed to star in the next round of MBC’s We Got Married .
However, this has raised the question of who will be selected as his wife.
So far, two female stars are in the talks to become part of one of the next couples on We Got Married . The two are both girl group members: Jun Hyosung of Secret and Solar of Mamamoo.
According to a recent report, two couples currently on the show are scheduled to depart, leaving an empty space for two new couples to join.
Although Hyosung and Solar have both met with the We Got Married producers to discuss joining the show , nothing has been confirmed yet. It appears that the producers are deciding which of the two would match best with a funny, outgoing person like Eric Nam.
Regarding the casting, the program’s producers have mentioned they are “meeting many other candidates.” This has widened the number of potential choices for Eric Nam’s virtual wife.
Meanwhile, a rumor has popped up that GFriend’s Umji will be Eric Nam’s wife on We Got Married , despite the fact that the two are nearly 10 years apart in age (27 and 17).
According to a post on Korean message board BHU, insiders at news outlet Fact Korea reported, “Eric Nam’s WGM wife has been tentatively selected as Umji, but we are still working out the fine details.”
Filming for the next couple to join the show will begin in early April.
