Even though the couple indeed gained popularity for their appearances on We Got Married, it wasn’t always for the best of reasons. One of many things that made the two of them so well-known was Seo In-young’s temper. In an episode of Mnet’s 4 Things Show, Seo In-young read comments about how she acted on We Got Married. One of the people who commented said that if he had a girlfriend like Seo In-young, he wouldn’t be able to spend even one hour with his girlfriend. Ouch!
Reading this, Seo In-young laughed and admitted that she actually felt the exact same way when she watched the program herself.

Controversy during With You Filming
After wrapping up their virtual marriage on We Got Married, Seo In-young and Crown J reunited once again a few years later! It seems they didn’t get enough of each other the first time around. This time they starred on another virtual marriage program called With You, which was aired in JTBC. Unfortunately, a controversy surrounding Seo In-young emerged during their appearance on the program.
It was said that a video showing Seo In-young verbally assaulting a With You staff member was circulating at that time. Because of this controversy, Seo In-young received a lot of backlash from the show’s fans. Eventually, it got so bad that the couple’s appearance on the program had to end. As the result of these critics and their comments, Seo In-young closed herself off from the world and wasn’t active on social media for quite a long time.
Her agency defended her by saying that what actually happened is quite different than what the video appeared to show. Their statement said that she didn’t curse out a specific individual, but rather was simply publicly expressing her anger overall. However, they also stated that it is wrong for entertainers to curse on set and went on to say that Seo In-young was currently reflecting on her mistakes. Meanwhile, her virtual husband, Crown J, defended her by saying that Seo In-young was under a lot of stress herself at the time. He pleaded to everyone, especially netizens, not to be too critical of her and reminded everyone that despite her superstar celebrity status, Seo In-young is human too.
