girlfriday: So… Uhm Tae-woong is getting married?! Did the sky fall down?
javabeans: Basically what I’m taking from this is: Tae-woong is a better actor than I gave him credit for (and I give him a lot), because he totally Keyser Soze’d us with the Captain Lonelyhearts routine.
girlfriday: I know! All this time he was all “I’m so lonely” and “I want a girlfriend” and “Where’s my other half?” and getting sympathy from his bros and from the entire country, and he totally had a girlfriend.
javabeans: Maybe all his lovey-dovey antics (talking about dating every chance he got, making props kiss) was just him being giddy with romance.
girlfriday: We’ve been hoodwinked. He was in love this whole time and just being a doofus about it?
javabeans: Or… in lust? Because apparently his honey is knocked up. For five weeks. Now there’s a man of action for you. She’s one week late and he’s all, “Let’s get hitched!”
girlfriday: Well, he WAS in a big ol’ hurry. So, to back up: Tae-woong announced out of the blue on today’s episode of 1 Night 2 Days that he’s getting married to a ballerina, and also apparently going to be a dad too.
javabeans: She’s the daughter of veteran actor Yoon Il-bong, and she’s a 32-year-old member of the Korean National Ballet. Why do I feel like he’s going to jump back into the “I’m better than you haha” game with Lee Seon-kyun now that he’s got a (to-be) wife and kid too?
girlfriday: Yeah now it’ll turn into how many kids and who’s smarter and eats all their peas. I have a feeling Seon-kyun wins all their contests even if he loses anyway, because he’s just a better talker. I’m just happy for Tae-woong finally getting to join the Married Team on 1N2D, because he just seemed to want it So. Badly.
javabeans: Is it mean that I think that does nothing for the balance of which team has the bigger advantage? HA. If anything he’s just adding to the Bumbling Game Player quotient, which gives the Singles the edge.
girlfriday: Yeah it actually groups Seung-woo, Tae-hyun, and Tae-woong (the Cannots) all on one team now, so they might put up a fight. Tae-hyun will probably argue for Dads vs. Non-dads or something to keep the mathically-challenged Tae-woong at bay.
javabeans: He’s only got eight months to make that work. Better get a move on.
girlfriday: Can’t you see follow-everything-my-hyung-does Joo-won suddenly going, “I wanna get mawieed too!”
javabeans: Yes, so he finally has someone to kill his bugs for him. The question is, now that the news is out in the open, just HOW disgustingly, publicly romantic is Tae-woong going to get? Are we talking frequent mentions of the wifey on camera, or full-on serenades and poetry performances every episode?
girlfriday: I dunno, but it’s Tae-woong, so it’s guaranteed to be really, really embarrassing for everyone, including us.
javabeans: That’ll just have to be his cross to bear.
