The program’s producers have confirmed that May 3 will be the last day for all four of the current couples: (clockwise from top left) Jung Hyung Don – Tae Yeon, Shin Sung Rok – Kim Shin Young, Kang In – Lee Yoon Ji, and Jun Jin – Lee Si Young. New couples will fill in the space starting May 10.

In an attempt to attract interest, they are hoping to make the variety show more realistic by having actual celebrity couples star on the program. Currently, there is a high probability that one of the new couples will be singer Kim Yong Jun (SG Wannabe) and actress Hwang Jung Eum (formerly of Sugar). News reports have been mixed – some say that it has been confirmed, while others say their participation (or lack thereof) will be confirmed by next week. The two have been dating since 2007.

The reformatted program will reportedly only feature two couples instead of four. The producers also contacted Tablo to star in the show with girlfriend Kang Hye Jung. Although Tablo asked Kang right away, they both did not want to participate in order to focus on their respective activities – singing and acting.

There is also a rumour that the producers are currently holding discussions with the agencies of another singer – actor couple. Apparently the couple is seriously considering participation; however, there is a major issue because their relationship has yet to be revealed to the public.

In addition, some fans have been requesting that G-Dragon of Big Bang and Jessica of SNSD to be paired on the show.

  3. They should just scrap this show already. Do another new show. I hope Kim Young Jun will feel comfortable with it. Why must be couple on dating. Why not people that already married. That is more real.
