Former "We Got Married" couple Lee Hong Ki and Fujii Mina discussed their virtual marriage when they appeared on the KBS entertainment program "Happy Together." The theme of the show was "My Friend Is A Foreigner."

Lee Hong Ki and Fujii Mina appeared on a global edition of the popular program in 2013. The global edition paired stars from different countries.

Fujii, 27, is a Japanese model and actress. Thanks to her Korean language skills she also lands roles in Korea. She can be seen in the 2015 remake "My Sassy Girl."

Lee Hong Ki is a member of the band FT Island, as well as actor. He appeared in the dramas "Modern Farmer," "Bride of the Century" and "You're Beautiful."

When he appeared on "Happy Together," Lee shared photos of his actress bride and confessed that he was scared to meet her before he began filming "We Got Married."

"She speaks Korean so well and has such a small beautiful face," said Lee. "I was intimidated. At the time, I had gained some weight. So I was already lacking self confidence."

Fujii Mina began learning Korean after watching the Hallyu hit drama "Winter Sonata" in 2002.

"Koreans are more honest with their feelings and thoughts than the Japanese," she said.

During a press conference staged before the global edition of "We Got Married" aired, Lee confessed that he always wanted to marry a foreigner or at least experience what that might be like. He had that chance.

While they were filming the program viewers wondered if their friendship might progress into an actual romance. But that did not happen. When their stint on the program ended, he wondered if he should have been more romantic.  When they parted he said, "I feel bad because I should have treated her more in the way she wanted to be treated by a guy."

But she was happy with the way he treated her. On the program she sent him a letter saying she was glad she married him.

He referred to her as "his wife" for at least a year after their run on the program ended. And although they did not go on to date, despite their different nationalities and busy schedules, they have remained friends.
