MBC’s We Got Married To Be Cancelled?
After nine years, MBC executives are reportedly in talks whether the reality show We Got Married stays on air or if it’s time for the show to say goodbye to its viewers. Soompi reports that MBC denies previous news reports claiming about the show’s cancellation.
The outlet notes that there has been no firm decision to cancel the reality show. Asia Starz reports that the network is planning to reorganize and are preparing a pilot program. However, the network insider stated that “no specific programs have been discussed in regard to cancellation.”
On the other hand, the production team of the show does not want to address the cancellation speculations because they are still filming for the series. Moreover, the show’s top head wants to verify the details first before making any statements.
