Why did Alex decide to leave We Got Married?

I was just thinking, was there really a need for Alex to come off the show because he wanted to concentrate on his music career? I’m not a musician, etc but maybe it does consume your entire time. But look at Solbi, she has so many shows where she’s a host and she even has a role in a drama currently showing on MBC. She still has time to come on We Got Married which I believe takes up two days, one day to record the scene and another day for the studio.



One reason could be that Alex had during the course of the show found it hard to contain his growing feelings for Shin Ae. The show was originally setup to enact how newly-weds behave in situations assigned to them via mission envelopes and then the couples take it from there, probably the only scripted part. How the situation pans out is according to their own personalities.

All in all, Alex is probably someone who is very a very good lover and once he gets started, he won’t inhibit himself. He must have probably fell for Shin Ae unassuming charms along the way. But it’s hard for him because he has to remind himself that it’s just a show, not reality. But as it went on, it became harder and harder for him to control his feelings. Cue the kissing scene during their picnic outing, he was just filled with an indomitable spirit.

Thus before he hurts Shin Ae further, before she falls for him further, it was better for him to cut ties with her. Whether it’s for his career or he did not want to play out his relationship in the public, we wouldn’t really know.


Or maybe the producers decided that a change was due anyway since they always love to do it for variety shows and inject some freshness. They probably asked Alex if he was agreeable to it and he said yes.

Alex is lucky that he isn’t an idol star like Andy who is now like under media and netizen scrutiny over his every move. By being off the show, Alex isn’t subjected to much intense scrutiny except for the odd paparazzi.

Another thing is that he has taken a radio show vacated by Sung Shi Kyung and there’s also unconfirmed news that he’s in Japan to record his album. So yeah.

Either way, it doesn’t feel like Alex and Shin Ae would be back unless another couple is cut from the present line-up. And even if Alex decides to return, will Shin Ae really want to come back on again seeing how fragile her heart is with regards to relationships? What if Alex is free to come back on but Shin Ae has something to do then…There’s always a scheduling conflict possibility.

Alex ♥ Shin Ae

Noo~ I really think he wanted to focus on his 1rst album (that's always like that for musicians / singers, they always want to do their best in order to have a good quality's album, some musicians/singers only think about that, they sleep in the studio etc... they are so focused) So I think It might be the same for Alex

And maybe, he really feels something for ShinAe and those feelings were like so into his mind that he couldn't focus for his album

LOOL it turned up like a fan fic xD! we don't knoww and maybe we'll never >.<

-scuse my english ^^ -

Well now, he's coming back so yay!
and you have to realize alex and solbi are different people,if solbi wants to take all of those things on then thats her,but Alex said himself that he wanted to fully concentrate on his 1st solo album and he dropped out of everything ,not just we got married. Let's not try to over analyze and make it into some big thing,because in the end he just need a break to give his best on his album.

b4 this, i like also Alex and Shin Ae couple..and it's bit shock and upset seeing Alex needs to leave Shin Ae..after giving her those sweet memories...

but then after seeing other also has busy work besides We Got Married..Solbi has lots of programmes, even Andy with his new album and at the same time, with 10th anniversary Shinhwa..and Hyun Joong goes to Japan and even Thai for concert... thinking that, bit dissappointed with his decision..

but now, he come back and seem like there is a distance between them...but i do wish all the best to AlShin.....and to his new album...as i don't have right to judge, just an opinion..

i just think that we got married is not really a heavy programme as it don't have script..as long as they enjoy being with their partner and just being themselves, it is just kind of relaxing and just like dating....means that it is not actually a job if they don't take it as a job...and it's just for maybe 2 days...

just wondering....i know the spend maybe 2days per week or per 2weeks..at some episodes showing like they really sleep in their house but at Come To Play, they said that after interview, they will leave...just curious to know...

Andy is from Shinhwa, which is an idol group...Idol groups are manufactured groups...like their looks and stuffs(they basically really don't need that great talent in singing or dancing, as long as they can produce some catchy music and snycronized dance moves and capture some fangirl's/boy's hearts...but that's not the case in Shinhwa...I would say that it's not the case in all artists that are trained by SM...well...that's the case in JE(Johnny's Entertainment like Arashi, KAT-TUN, NEWS and etc) groups..they're the perfect example of idol groups)...that's what make an idol group...and since Andy is in one, he's considered an idol star...while Alex is in a band called Clazziquai, even though its a band...it's not a boy group like Shinhwa...but they're real singers, who are not promoting their personalities(it could just be a plus) but their voices and mostly they're abilities in composing and writing their own music...

Thank you so much for the explanation and not to be a pain but I hear these two terms a lot, netizen and skinship what are the definitions for these terms.

netizens is a term for Korean internet critics...skinship is you know when they touch each other like hugging, kissing, holding hands, or even just tapping...that's what skinship is...it's because Koreans show their affections a lot...

believe me... as a recording engineer...
recording is a long and exhausting process...

I mean, maybe his feelings towards shinae were growing...
maybe he did need to get away from it...

because if you are distracted by something... you're not going to be concentrating on your job. [for alex, that was recording]

and you always want to be sure that you tried your best. And if he stayed on the show while recording.. he may have had regrets in the future...

idk.. who knows haha... thats just what I think....

If I understand, recording is a very long process some artists don't even get sleep D:.

But I thought it was bad at first when he left Shin Ae, almost as if he were putting his career over his feelings--but I understand some what now. It was a very hard choice for him i'm sure i'm glad they're reunited.
