Fans say that Oh Yeon-seo doesn’t appreciate and doesn’t think of Lee Joon’s current feelings as his virtual husband. In fact, in the previous episode, Lee Joon had introduced Yeon-seo to his family, fans thought Oh Yeon-seo didn’t respect Lee Joon and his family.


One broadcast insider commented, “Oh Yeon-seo and Lee Jang-woo are currently meeting well. I think they got close having met often to film their daily drama. Since there isn’t much of an age gap either and they share similar interests, it seems they were able to connect.”

Another insider commented, “Since the two must lead the daily drama until May, I think they’ve become really close. They are also sunbae and hoobae of Dongguk University.”

Oh Yeon-seo’s agency confirmed the news as they commented, “It seems they are currently getting to know each other and started seeing each other about a month ago.”

Lee Joon responded honestly, “When I first heard about you and Lee Jang Woo, I was sleeping and I thought it was just a dream. I really hated you for that in the beginning. I thought, ‘How could she do this to me?’ But I remembered the time I became the hot potato because of something. I said. When I think about that time, I understand how unfair it is for you. If you are confident and identified in your claims, how can I not believe you.”


A viewer wrote on ‘We Got Married’ forum, “She begs for sympathy with fake tears and completely missed the point of the controversy. She talks about how she feels bad for her partner instead of explaining her nature of relationship with Lee Jang-woo.”
