'We Got Married: Global Edition' Huge Hit Among International Audiences

By Staff Writer | April 30, 2013 06:22 AM EDT

When the hit TV variety show We Got Married announced that they would be doing an international version of the program, fans around the world were eager to see what was in store.

Now it is ranked number 1 as the most viewed variety show with approximately 9.3 million viewers, according to iQiyi, a Chinese video sharing site.

We Got Married Global Edition pairs up two Korean pop stars, Taecyeon of 2PM and HongKi of FT Island, with starlets from other countries, Gui Gui (a Taiwanese actress) and Mina (a Japanese actress).

The couples are faced with the same challenges seen in many international relationships; cultural differences, language barriers, and acclimating to one another's personalities.

South Korean TV network MBC produces the show and it is currently being broadcast in 22 different countries by Sony Pictures Television Networks Asia. There are also shortened subtitled versions of each episode available on YouTube.

We Got Married Global Edition was uploaded to the Chinese sharing site iQiyi on April 26 and within the first day had already been viewed more than 9 million times. This is an especially impressive achievement for the program as the site is generally dominated by Chinese shows.

So far there have been four episodes of We Got Married Global Edition aired and MBC plans to run the series for eleven more.

As the series continues and more subtitled episodes are made available on the internet, We Got Married Global Edition is expected to gain more and more attention around the globe as fans tune in to see what will become of these cross-cultural couples.
