About the YongSeo Couple
YongSeo couple refers to Yonghwa and Seohyun or, as fans called them, “goguma couple” (sweet potato couple). They have such significantly different characters; Yonghwa is sociable and tends to be as playful as a boy, while Seohyun is shy, mature, naive, obedient to the rule, and a bookworm. They were both still young at the time of their virtual marriage, Yonghwa was 21 years old and Seohyun was only 19. They became the first young couple in We Got Married Season 2, which come out from episode 40 until episode 91 (51 episodes), in August 2010.
They had their first meeting in the MBC lobby. Seohyun was coming to see her very first husband, and she didn’t have any clue who it would be. Meanwhile, the CN Blue members were gathering in the lobby, the playful Yonghwa was supposed to make a set with Seohyun, but Jungshin was pretending to be Seohyun’s husband, instead. The naive Seohyun believed Yonghwa’s game, but then Yonghwa asked Seohyun if she had to choose who would become her husband between all the members of CN Blue, which person she would choose by covering them with a blanket. Surprisingly, Seohyun chose Yonghwa by putting the blanket over his body. Then, Yonghwa, with his big smile, revealed that he was the real husband. After that, Yonghwa brought Seohyun to his practice room, he showed her how to play the guitar, then they grabbed some food and bought their couple rings, which were only 2000 won (around 2 USD).
On the 22nd day of their relationship, Seohyun wanted to celebrate by donating her blood, but Yonghwa had just come back from another country so he couldn’t make a donation. Instead of canceling the donations, Seohyun still did it alone, what an angel heart she has! After that, they went to the bank to open a joint account for their household. Such a thoughtful couple!
When Seohyun’s birthday rolled around, Yonghwa seemed to have forgotten about it, which made her sad. Then Yonghwa asked Seohyun to go fishing with him. She was surprised that Yonghwa actually bought her a field, and the field is not just a regular field, it was a SWEET POTATO FIELD! As a sweet potato lover, Seohyun was surprised and happy. She never thought that she would ever get a sweet potato field as a birthday gift. They did some farming together, and after a while, Yonghwa had a second surprise for her. He had planted a necklace at the field before they went there together, Seohyun was again shocked. What a romantic Yonghwa!
After farming, they went fishing and Yonghwa left for a little bit to buy mosquito repellent. While he was gone, Seohyun prepared a surprise for Yonghwa, since his birthday was so close to hers. Seohyun surprised Yonghwa when she sang him a song with a small guitar and gave him a book about the Yongseo couple that she wrote herself. On the last page of the book, she attached a new couple ring. Since Yonghwa’s first ring had broken, Seohyun bought him a new one, which was made of white gold.
When they were moving into their house together, some SNSD (Girls Generation) members and Jungshin from CN Blue came to help manage the place and gave them housewarming gifts. Seohyun and Yonghwa gave their home an AVATAR theme, so they put lots of stuffed animals in their house.
They also had some cute moments when Yonghwa challenged Seohyun to play billiards, saying the one who loses has to give the winner a piggyback ride home, Seohyun lost.
In another episode, they were rehearsing together. On the way back home, they made another bet, this time about playing basketball. Seohyun won the game, so Yonghwa had to carry her home.
Another cute moment happened when CN Blue was just coming back to Korea from a concert in Thailand. Seohyeon surprised him by hiding in the baggage behind CN Blue’s car. All the CN Blue members were shocked, especially Yonghwa, when they wanted to get their guitar and she came out from their baggage car.
They also visited Yonghwa’s parents in Busan, the second biggest city after Seoul. They went by train and ended up falling asleep together. How cute they look!
In the scene below, Seohyun said she was felt cold and Yonghwa put his arms around her to keep her warm. Then, Seohyun admitted that she made him a scarf. So thoughtful, Seohyun!
Their relationship was not always about love, they were also productive. They made a song titled “Banmal Song,” and Seohyun helped write the lyrics. They filmed their performance singing this song.
During the last concert in Japan, Yonghwa lost the scarf from Seohyun. By way of apology, Yonghwa made a handmade scarf for Seohyun and gave her a book about the journey of him making the scarf in between his work commitments. So sweet!

Before they separated, they took the money from their joint bank account and used the money to get a massage together.
Since it was their last day, they agreed to do activities the way they did when they first meet. They wore the same clothes, talked the same topics, and visited Yonghwa’s practice room at MBC.
When they arrived in the CN Blue practice room, Yonghwa asked Seohyun if she still remembered how to play guitar, and she said no. Unexpectedly, she could play and sing Banmal, Yonghwa was surprised and happy. Later on, when they arrived home, they enjoyed their time together in their house for the last time.
They also drank banana milkshakes for the last time together.
