WGM: It's up to the couples whether to leave the show or not


PD Jeon Seong Ho from WGM stated in an interview on the 16th that the decision to leave the show would not be made without the consent of the couples themselves.

He said that they will have a decision making time during the next recording of WGM, following suit of the first pilot. The couples will decide using 'O' and 'X' whether to stay or not to stay, and they will have time to think it over. He also said that if Andy-Solbi decide to stay together on the spot, they can continue to do so.

He also stated that the couples will shoot their 'Farewell Vacation' mission first, before deciding for themselves if they want to leave the program or not during the taping of WGM on the 23rd. The final list of couples will be broadcasted on the 28th.

Jeon PD also said that the couples from the Chuseok special were the most likely to become regular cast if the current lineup changes, but there is no intention to mirror the current couples as it would be difficult to be able to duplicate their images.

MBC……bullshit

this is very annoying to us. Feel like the stupid PD is playing our emotions.. i am scared that HJ may decide to leave coz of the new album and overseas travelling plus the cast..... with all those heavy workload!!!!

i just can't imagine if our joongboers can survive without buin & shillang !!!!!!!
i feel very stressful now !!!!

I got this feeling that JoongBo will choose to leave because of their hectic and stressful schedules, especially the recent HJ's sleeping pills overdose. I believe the decision does not belong solely to HJ as the Korean management agencies usually decide everything about their stars' career path. As for HB, although she does not belong to any management company, she may decide to leave too because of her hectic scedule (she posted in her blog that yesterday was the 1st holiday she had) and also for the sake of HJ's health. We will respect their decisions. Let's enjoy the next 2 weeks of WGM while we can.

should we make a direct phone call to HJ's company to see his decision???

All I can do is hope and pray that joongbo couple won't leave the show. If ever they do, to me,WGM will never be the same thus I won't be watching anymore.

what to do...

i kno both hyun joong and hwang bo are busy but cant they stay at least the end of the year.

im having a feeling that those two will leave and replace by hwanhee and heayobi couple as weird couple..

knowing how nice hwang bo is she'll probably quit for the sake of hyun joong she knows he's busy so shell probably be very considerate and would rather leave the show so at least hyun joong can at least rest for once and also knowing what happen to hyun joong about overdosing omg.. she might no they might really leave.. i feel like crying agian...

Anonymous said...

is hj really casted in a hana yori dango? i don't think he's officially casted yet..so, if he's not then i'm really hopeful that they would stay together in wgm and take care of each other...

though i wish they have better health but i really wanna see them take care of each other more..and explore the closeness they are having now...

let's have faith in them... aja!

rispas said...

Hey Muize..if we can call DSP and let them know we are rooting for our Joongbo couple to stay on WGM..let's do it!!! I am ok if HJ & HB wants to leave on their own accord...but they have to promise Joongboers of the world that they will still keep in contact and give their relationship a chance outside of WGM. Also HJ will stop taking sleeping pills and listen to HB's songs as lullably :-). Sorry for sounding so wacko on your blog chonsa..been a trying few days.

JOONGBO AJA!!

katty81 said...

hey rispas gd ideal....u r not very wacko to me i think all those who love them and wanting them to b 2gether if they r out of wgm...i also hope tat they give a chance for each other let this wonderful love relationship a shot....

rispas said...

I have another thought...can we send messages to HB....supporting HJ and her decisions to stay in WGM? Any ideas how to do that?

AJA

katty81 said...

i dun want to pour u sour,hmm i think hb will think of hj busy projects....she will think of his health....ur thoughts is good but now i think hb will think her shilang health more

rispas said...

Hehe..its ok katty..just wishful thinking..hehe..still wacko remember!

katty81 said...

hi rispas tell u something, i also like fariy tales stories, as long we dream or just a thoughts,im content with it. haahaa i hope tat they will get in touch with each other

Maylewis said...

Anonymous said...

maybe we can just try to write a msg to SS501 official web and HB's CY telling them, we would love to watch them in the show still if possible...
at least give them some support... even though maybe the PD had told them to quit beforehand...

PS i hope that you understand me because my english is not good thank you so much

i rather hear the news from HJ manager after the incident than from this BS director. they are actually playing the ball game, passing the blame to the couples. If there is the right reasons for the couples to leave the show then let them announced themselves without making a quiz. No one will hate the couples if there is the right reason for them to leave. no party will not end. i believe every fans already prepared for the couple departure but not in this way. they are running out of thoughts and use that as one mission. I will not watch their show if my favorite couple leave the show. this is the first time i know about MBC station. they really giving me a bad image.

Anonymous said...

Omg..... I just heard ALex is gonna anounce leaving also so that means the probability Joongbo will stay is EXTREMELY HIGH :D:D:D They are noooooooo way gonna get rid of more than 2 couples because on the new couples special... hwanyobi was most popular couple to stay and there wasnt much interest in the other two soooo that means they wouldnt put all 3 couples... the max they can put in is two so guys stop being so NEGATIVE amd enjoy joongbo whilst it lasts!! (til end of this yr, if not longer)

I cant believe fellow joongboers are either not minding or wanting joongbo to leave!! I feel hurt :(

yuri said...

even though they all will leave the WGM show, the other 3 couples they seem got sparks but i think anbi got no more loving in the show but got show a bit improvement one also have to leave hmm i think the show is not long term tv show or they cant think anything for the current couple to do any mission? onli the PD know.But also dun wan HJ&HB leave so soon...
may love blossom for them{HJ&HB} fighting fighting fighting...

Hihi, I think btw the couples' managers and MBC WGM's PD, they would have some sort of contractual agreement of how many episodes to film before they started to the show.
So like wat he mentioned if there's any hiccups that the artist are withdrawing or unable to commit for at least certain number of episodes, then the artist and their managers would make certain decision.

Anonymous said...

so in the long run, the couple show might end, I was thinking perhaps, we conclude suggest them some ideas to keep the couples' WGM rolling. keke. Like AnSo couple, some of us might felt tat the sparkles btw them are low.
Suggestion:1)How would get nerve one of them, how they make up for each others of the misunderstanding like the CrownJ/Inyoung Couple. We have not seen that in Alex/Shinae and HyunJoong/Hwangbo. It is interesting to see Shinae and HyunJoong coolness... 2) HyunJoong/Shinae meet the WGM partners' parents... keke
3)More couples competition, as a couple team when the couples episode joining in, etc... 4)Mission for one the parnter to give surprise visit, it may be making one's happy / trick / angry / cry / sad or complete certain mission or wishes for their WGM's parnter...

Anonymous said...

Hopefully this could keep the couples continue to be in the show. read from of the forum that this WGM show is a 100 episodes show. so hopefully we can see them till the end, or the artists' managers and artist could make decision to be it a temporary absent from the show, returning to the show during certain season or holiday special or even preparation for the seasons/holiday special.

Knowing each WGM artists have other schedules, hope they can gain more popular in other places and have a bette career and earn more money. :) Definitely, they have to be in good health... Artists' Managers beside grooming them, do take care of their health. :)

Anonymous said...

blaming someone or pointing fingers, would give other a negative impression of our favorite artist's fan or supportors. I think instead of doing such comments, we should turn this into a positive action.

Anonymous said...

Of course we could questions the PD to clarify things, but it won't make the artist and their managers to change the mind, as their career have to move on...Then we can get to see how the artist can shine in other area too. This is what that motivate to continue supporting them. Hopeful suggestion some positive feedbacks, both the PD and the couples/managers can work out something better.

evelyn168 said...

I seriously think the PD is trying to raise the ratings by doing this 'farewell special' and then telling us in the end, oh, none of them are going to leave... Cuz they can't find better couples...

If the couples decide to leave, I seriously think WGM is done. The original couples were so fun to watch...

But with HJ's schedule, I really don't know if he can stay on WGM.

Anonymous said...

i think HyunJoong is still able to continue till Nov, as the casting starting in end Dec, while the preparation for the casting is on-going like his hair-styling, photo-taking... :)

Anonymous said...

his filming in WGM is twice per month, appearring on show is once a week, should be ok. :) Let's don't worry. :)

we should find their personal homepages and write them notes saying what a huge fan base they have outside of korea! i know inyoung has one i saw it the other day...ill dig around and see if i can find either HJ or HB

inyoung's had a lot of pictures so maybe HB/HJ have a lot of candid shots of them too!

viperpen said...

im starting to lose interest with what the PD's are doing to the show.

they are like playing with our emotions.

they know how much we love hj and hb..

d*mn those PD's..

luckily, im not in korea or else..

Anonymous said...

can somebody tell me where I can read the personal blogs/ homepage of HB and HJ ? Want to read their blogs daily so I will have some idea whether they have plans of leaving WGM in the next few weeks or days ??????

anybody outthere ??? thank you !!!!

Anonymous said...

hahahah...Another pile of bull crap from the PDs....we all should know that those buttholes have already made their decisions about these couples. They are just making us beleive it's the couple's decision because they don't want the backlash from the veiwers they KNOW they are going to get when they let one of the couples go. They know no one wants to see those new couples. HELLO Low ratings for the part 1 and high rating for part 2. THE PDS ARE FULL OF CRAP!!!! and they should be ashamed of themselves for trying to make us beleieve it's all up to the couples.

Anonymous said...

if they decided to stay in the long-run..viewer's interest to the original couples might decline a lil' bit and by then only, is the best timing that the PDs should've done to let go of all the original couples...
however if the long-run method made all couples more popular...they're going to have more work offers which i.e. hectic work schedules..which we can guess..is not a very good thing for each of 'em...we need to know that by now...
unfortunately for what the PDs had planned now..-__-..I would say, BS.
what..? they think the viewers are stupid or SOMETHING??...oh great..just put all of that pressure of them leaving by their own and escaped the wrath of the viewers..WELL..too late for that...the "WAR" has just begin..-__-..erm. err..that may just sound a bit serious...*sigh*..I just have to let that off my brain..grr..d*mn you PDs..anyways..thanks chonsa for the news ^^ your blog is the only one that I can count on WGM news ^^ thanks again~
