Taemin and Naeun episode 1 The segment starts and we see the exterior of SHINee’s dorm, presumably in near the SM Headquarters.We’ve been seeing that dorm living room more lately than the SM cloud practice room, not that fans are complaining.In other instances, Taemin appears so shy and eager to please that he smiles sweetly and shows very little personality.In short: my opinion of Taemin before We Got Married was “variety disaster.” Official confirmation arrived very soon after the first reports.Since I’m not doing these posts before the subtitles appear and I’m not a native Korean speaker, I see the main point of them being the review portion and the links to additional information, although I include a detailed recap in case people want it.Backstory For those new to Korean broadcaster MBC’s We Got Married—often shortened to WGM by international fans—the show pairs celebrity men and women in reality show “marriages.” The “husband” and the “wife” do married couple things such as going to the amusement park, crawling around in the garden, and going for physical exams.
Key explains that Taemin is very obvious about his emotions and reactions, so even if he says nothing you can see what he thinks on his face.
Key and Onew make fun of Taemin’s line drawing and tell him to redo the drawing to make it better.
Taemin manages to produce something somewhat better, but still quite bad.
These days, there are three couples per “season,” so each hour-longish episode is divided between three WGM “marriages.” The couples tend to be composed of a mix of actors and idols, with some of the participants rocketing to greater fame based on their personalities and the public’s favorable perception of their pairing.
When I first heard that SHINee‘s maknae Taemin would star on We Got Married, I suspected that it was a ridiculous rumor.
