5 Reasons To Love Kim So Eun & Song Jae Rim On ‘We Got Married’

Even before the couple’s first episode aired, those of us at Kultscene thought that We Got Married‘s latest couple was worth watching. Kim So Eun and Song Jae Rim are both actors who are talented on their own, but together they make up one of the best couples We Got Married has seen in a long time. The two come together to form a realistic couple, with their similarities and their differences, and are truly enjoyable to watch. The two actors are completely different, incompatible, but somehow they make the audience forget that everything is just for the sake of the show. It’s impossible not to watch this couple without grinning at their interactions, and getting squeamish when it comes down to their over-the-top moments.

[Disclosure: This contains content from the latest episode, so mind the spoilers.]

1. A Perfect Match

Couples need to be different, but they also need to have similarities, and that’s the case here. Both Song Jae Rim and Kim So Eun are actors with impressive careers but not superstars, so they have a hard-working determination that makes them perfect for one another.

Some couples on We Got Married are unevenly matched in their careers, but Jae Rim and So Eun are in similar places and really connect over that. Their personalities also match, and, even when bickering, the two find similarities and things that they can bond over– taking selfies, loving cats, living alone, saying “my style,” and countless other things.

2. Realistic Couple

The two make you forget that We Got Married is just a faux-marriage program. Instead, Song Jae Rim tries multiple times each episode to get closer to Kim So Eun, whether it’s putting his arm sneakily around her or when he tries to kiss her neck in romantic gesture. He constantly teases So Eun about intimate relations and going to bed together that it’s hard to imagine that there are cameramen following them around.

Even though Kim So Eun thinks Jae Rim’s cheesiness and attempts at skinship are over the top, she can’t resist his charm. The two became close early on and even felt comfortable watching a mature movie together. They tease each other like normal couples do, but even when they annoy each other, Jae Rim and So Eun find the other charming.

3. Song Jae Rim Is Cute and Sexy All At Once

Known for his powerful roles in The Moon Embraces The Sun, Inspiring Generation, and Two Weeks, as well as for being eye candy in The Idle Mermaid, Song Jae Rim has completely ruined his image on We Got Married.

He’s gained the nickname “Obligation Song,” due to how he does everything that So Eun asks him to do. Kim So Eun and the in-studio audience cannot handle his over-the-top compliments sometimes, although in the latest episodes, So Eun’s started to be just as ridiculous as Jae Rim. He’s so, so, so cheesy that even the MC’s can’t handle it.

4. Kim So Eun Shows Her Tough Attitude and Soft Side

The leading lady doesn’t take anything from her man, even when he tries to tease her by not wearing boxers under his hospital gown. Jae Rim pushes, and So Eun pushes right back. But she also makes him dinner, visits him when he’s ill, and puts up with his over exaggerated attempts at flattery. She’s a bit more innocent than Song Jae Rim, and admits that she hasn’t been in a relationship in a while, but even though she gets flustered when he teases her, she is ready to match him head to head rather than letting him take control of the situation. So Eun’s able to take as much as Jae Rim gives and it’s simply fantastic to watch them try to go head-to-head with one another. (Plus, she’s great on Liar Game!)

But, at the end of the day, Kim So Eun is independent, and whenever Song Jae Rim teases her, she finds something to tease him about. JaeRim couple may as well be called “bickering couple” based on how they go at it sometimes, and it’s absolutely amazing.

5. Kuni Omma & Olla Appa

We Got Married couples usually have names for each other, often “darling” or “honey,” but this couple became parents early on in their marriage. Both Song Jae Rim and Kim So Eun are cat lovers, and instead of dropping their cats off somewhere else during filming, they both brought their cats, Kim Seo Eun’s Kuni and Song Jae Rim’s Olla, to their We Got Married home. Of course, they also needed to carry all the necessary supplies with them, like catnip, a Range of CBD products for cats, treats, and more, to make sure that their beloved cats are well taken care of.

The cats make a common appearance, and the two have bonded over their common love by decorating their house and clothes with cat decals. They let the cats sleep on the bed, which didn’t leave room for the couple. Kuni Omma and Olla Appa’s response? Build a cat tower from scratch and forcibly lift the cats to it after sprinkling catnip on it.

5 Reasons To Watch Kim So Eun & Song Jae Rim’s ‘We Got Married’

With the departure of the Wooyoung-Park Se Young couple from We Got Married 4, a new couple is stepping up to the plate. After a slew of idol-dominated relationships, We Got Married is adding a new couple made up of two actors whose names you may not recognize, but whose faces you very may well. Kim So Eun and Song Jae Rim are definitely a couple to keep an eye on.

The first episode with the new couple will air on September 20, and you may be thinking about watching. Here are five reasons to definitely tune in to the show.

1. This Preview

You don’t need subtitles to see how fun this couple will be. In just a few seconds, Song Jae Rim goes from being introduced as a charismatic man, fighting and riding a motorcycle, to being a complete dork who Kim So Eun is practically appalled by.

We also see the couple drinking, initiated by Kim So Eun (ruining her sweet, innocent image), something that brings a more mature side to We Got Married. The two are already seen feeding one another and acting familiar, which looks so different from the coyness other couples have shown.

2. You Know Them, Even If You Don’t Think You Do

Kim So Eun played Cha Ga Eul in Boys Over Flowers, the best friend who falls in love with Kim Bum. Everyone rooted for her the entire show, hoping that she could win over his heart, and she end up winning over all of ours. She’s starring in the upcoming tvN drama Liar Game, and recently appeared in the Cannes Film Festival film, Mourning Grave.


Song Jae Rim, on the other hand, is currently in tvN’s drama The Idle Mermaid, but it’s his reputation as a tough warrior that has gained him a lot of attention. In The Moon Embraces The Sun, he played the loyal bodyguard Woon, and in Two Weeks he was the fearful assassin hunting Lee Joon Ki.


3. Song Jae Rim Is Really Sexy

There’s really no way to be less blunt about it. The actor has proved his manliness and charisma time and time again (while pulling off long hair), and if the two of them go to the beach in an episode, people will be very excited.

4. Kim So Eun’s Variety Skills Will Make The Show Exciting

Kim So Eun has done variety shows before about her relationship with another celebrity, f(x)’s Victoria. The two of them showcased trends that 20-somethings would be interested. The first episode began much like an episode of We Got Married, with the new “couple” meeting one another anonymously and going to different locations on “dates.”  

5. Because We Got Married Needs More Realism And Less Idols

We Got Married isn’t really a place for idols. Idols are meant to be seen from afar, not in relationships. The season began with three idols involved in couples (MBLAQ’s Lee Joon, Secret’s Sunhwa, and ZE:A’s Kwanghee), and it kind of threw off the whole show. We Got Married appears to be trying to get back to more “realistic” faux-marriages with this couple that looks like they get along really well.
