Kim Hyun Joong out of contact with ‘ex-wife’

Die-hard fans of Kim Hyun Joong, the actor who played Jihoo in the hit Korean drama “Boys Over Flowers,” know that he used to be in a 2008 reality show entitled “We Got Married.” In this show, the actor was involved in a virtual marriage with Hwang Bo, a Korean singer six years his senior.

Affectionately known to fans as the Lettuce Couple, Hyun Joong and Hwang Bo entertained fans as the show followed the development of their “marriage” from its awkward start to an almost-perfect closing. Their virtual marriage was so popular that they won the MBC Best Couple Award in 2008. Unfortunately, scheduling conflicts ended their “marriage.” Shortly before the Lettuce Couple bid farewell to “We Got Married,” Hyun Joong began shooting “Boys Over Flowers.” For this reason, many of their fans continue to believe that the two stayed in touch after their exit from “We Got Married.”

However, Hwang Bo, who recently staged her comeback with the song “I’m Still Pretty,” confirmed that Hyun Joong only contacted her once after the show. During her December 14 appearance in the show “Strong Heart,” Hwang Bo made the studio audience laugh when she confessed that “He [Kim Hyun Joong] contacted me just once, to wish me a happy birthday. I think he only did it because I’m the adult in the relationship.”

Regardless of Hwang Bo’s funny confession, the Lettuce Couple will truly be one of the most favored couples from “We Got Married.” Kim Hyun Joong is currently busy promoting his drama “Naughty Kiss” across Asia.
