Q&A with We Got Married Producers

21 May

An excerpt, but I think its important. posted in Soompi, of course, and many thanks to smr05 for translating it.

Q:어디까지 대본이고. 얼마만큼이 진짜인가요?

Q: To which extent is it real? and to which extent is it scripted?

A:대본도 설정도 없이 진짜 리얼리티 프로그램이라고 합니다. 제작진이 이래라 저래라 한 것도 없고. 캐릭터를 잡아준 것도 없다고 합니다. 첫 촬영 전 각 출연자들이 작가와 꼼꼼히 인터뷰를 한 게 전부라네요. 게다가 작가들은 그날그날 상황에 대해 아무런 예고나 설명도 해주지 않아 출연자들의 실제 성격이 드러날 수밖에 없다고 합니다. 연예인들이 자기 스스로 캐릭터를 만들어 갈 수도 있겠지만 상대방이 어떻게 나올 지 모르는 상황에서 대처하는 방식은 자연스럽게 출연자의 실제 모습에 가까워질 것입니다.

A: There is no script and no set situation. It is a real reality program. The producers dont tell them what to do. We didnt even create their characters. On the first day of the shoot, we got together with the guests and went through a thorough interview with them, which is all. Whats more, the guests arent even told what is going on or what will happen, so as to get the real emotions and reactions from the stars (regarding missions).

I hope this clears out the confusion. People were saying the show is scripted, and deep down I do believe they follow some set of instructions given, but thats about it. All and all, scripted or not, lets enjoy the show!

    I think they do have some sort of guidelines like it shouldn’t be “over-the-line” as in not too much intimacy etc, otherwise it looks real: real people (actual self of the stars), real emotions.

    Thanks for the translation (smr05) and posting it here, I can’t read Korean so the translation helped a lot.
