Super Junior member Siwon is scheduled to appear in the Chinese version of MBC’s ‘We Got Married’. Choi Siwon will ‘tie the knot’ with Chinese supermodel Liu Wen, who is one of the highest-paid models in the world, according to Forbes.
In addition to Choi Siwon and Liu Wen, two other couples have been confirmed for the show: Taiwanese actress Ruby Lin and actor Ren Zhong, as well as singer-actor Kimi Qiao and actress Xu Lu. MBC revealed previously that it has officially signed a deal for a Chinese remake of “We Got Married.” Entitled “Wo Men Xiang Ai Ba” (We Are in Love), the show is a co-production between MBC and China’s Jiangsu TV.
Choi Siwon is a South Korean singer and actor. He is a member of the South Korean boy band Super Junior and its Mandopop subgroup, Super Junior-M. He is one of the first four South Korean artists to appear on Chinese postage stamps
Liu Wen is a Chinese fashion model. She is the first model of East Asian descent to walk the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. In 2010, she became the first spokesmodel of Asian descent for Estée Lauder, alongside Constance Jablonski and Joan Smalls. In 2012, The New York Times named her "China’s first bona fide supermodel". In 2013, she became the first Asian model to ever make Forbes magazine's annual highest-paid models list.
In an April 2014 article about social media's rise in the fashion industry, American Vogue remarked that she had "by far, the biggest social-media audience of any model". Models.com dubbed her as the first ever Asian "New Supermodel" in July 2014. And in October of the same year, Liu became the first person in the world to showcase an Apple Watch on a magazine cover when she graced Vogue China's November 2014 issue.
