In next week's episode of "We Got Married: Global Edition," the international couple will travel to their farewell destination and say goodbye.
Despite speaking different languages and coming from different cultural backgrounds, the two had a lot in common. Taecyeon is the main rapper with the band 2 PM and has branched out into acting with the dramas "Dream High," "Cinderella's Sister" and the upcoming drama, "Who Are You?" Gui Gui, who is a very popular singer in Taiwan, has appeared in dozens of Taiwanese dramas and a few films.
At first it seemed as if the couple had too many obstacles to overcome. When she was asked who was her favorite 2PM member, she responded that it was Nickhun, much to Taecyeon's disappointment. When asked if they would date in real life, Taecyeon said yes. But Gui Gui did not think they could overcome cultural differences. But his sincere efforts to please her slowly won her over.
The show's highlights included his buying her silver shoes and slipping them on her feet Cinderella-style, his buying her flowers and cocoa, and his heartfelt proposal that brought Gui Gui to tears. To propose, he dressed up in a suit and tie, serenaded her with their song, and got on his knees.
"At first we felt like good friends," said Gui Gui. "But after that proposal we felt like a couple."
Now that the show is ending, they will part. She will return to Taiwan. He will work on his new drama. As a parting gift they will present each other with a pair of shoes.
"In Taiwan if you give someone a pair of shoes, it means you are letting them go," said Gui Gui. "I prepared this gift so we can think of each other when we wear these shoes in the future."
Taecyeon thanked her for being so bright and energetic.
"And thank you for marrying me," he said, which again made Gui Gui cry.
The final scene of "We Got Married: Global Edition" takes place in a train station. When they were about to part, Taecyeon said. "Maybe we'll run into each other at a different train station later in life."
Gui Gui kept crying.
The episode airs July 14. That gives viewers a few days to get some tissues. Viewers may want to cry too.
