[News] Hwang Bo Surprises SS501 Kim Hyun Joong

Hwang Bo of no-name group Chakra, recently made a surprise trip to Japan for MBC’s show “We Got Married”.

On the show, Hwang Bo is married to SS501 member, Kim Hyun Joong (who recently said he would rather have Hwang Bo over Hyori). SS501 is currently in Japan promoting because of their recent failings in Korea. Due to Kim Hyun Joong’s activities in Japan, Hwang Bo had to sit in with a cardboard cutout of Kim Hyun Joong on last weeks “We Got Married” show. This may happen frequently asKim Hyun Joong can only make it back to Korea on the weekends for filming.

The producers of “We Got Married” wanted to spice things up a bit and wanted to surprise Kim Hyun Joong by sending Hwang Bo to Japan. On June 23rd, Hwang Bo surprised Kim Hyun Joong back in his room. Everything was kept in secret, and nothing was leaked out on the internet so Kim Hyun Joong was totally surprised when he saw Hwang Bo. The episode where the surprise visit happens should air in the near future.

Luckily, Kim Hyun Joong isn’t a pimp in Japan like Bae Yong Joon. Because you know Mr. Yonsama would’ve had about four / five Japanese ahjuhmah’s waiting for him back in his room. But if Kim Hyun Joong did have mad hoes in his room, it would’ve made for some great “We Got Divorced” TV.
