From allkpop: http://www.allkpop.com/index.php/full_story/we_got_married_losing_the_plot_completely/


After a frantic week involving who was staying and leaving We Got Married, it was announced today that all 4 existing couples will now depart the show instead. The producers for the show announced that the sudden decision to cut all 4 couples were taken just this past weekend. The final episode for all 4 couples will be aired on 3rd May with the new couples coming in on 10th May."

Jung Hyung Don - Tae Yeon and Shin Sung Rok - Kim Shin Young couples had already given notice that they were leaving the show before the weekend with JunJin - Lee Si Young, Kangin - Lee Yoon Ji couples now following them as well out of the show. And unlike the previous season couples, the 4 couples will not have a farewell mission because they have enough filmed material which will be edited accordingly.

The number of couples on the show will also be reduced from 4 to just two and given 60 minutes. The production team explained, "As this was a sudden decision, we are still in the process of selecting the new couples. The new couples will be formed on the basis of being able to give an accurate portrayal of married life just like in reality."

Competition from SBS Family Outing and KBS2TV 1N2D in the same timeslot have also contributed since they chalked up high ratings consistently every week. But the main reason is most probably that the novelty of the whole make-believe marriage concept has worn off and is no longer appealing to viewers in Korea. People who used to care and show concern for the couples in the earlier episodes have moved on, as the replacements have failed to capture their imagination. The early success of the show also contributed to the rapid demise of the show as things subsequently got recycled, familiar patterns starts appearing, etc. No matter who comes in now, it doesn't seem like it will ever touch our hearts again like what the earlier couples did.


NOOOOOOOOO!!! KangJi!!!!!

i think the original couples are always the best. like, the newcomers MUST have seen the show prior to their "marriage" on the show, so it cant be helped if they already have a view of what they're supposed to "act" like. also, the original couples with chemistry have all left.............all of the couples were actually 4 different types of marriage

ansol - cute and sweet marriage
alex and sinae - romantic marriage
joongbo - sincere and funny marriage (the young couples' sort of marriage, u know?)
don don and saori - the lazy husband + tolerant wife marriage (haha, its alwayys hilarious but a little sad)
ant couple - the hollywood marriage (babies = shoes + caps)

after this......its just a repeat. like, no one can replace it
