Adorable K-Variety Inspired Dates For Valentine's Day

BY Adrienne Stanley

Song Jae Lim and Kim So Eun have shared many adorable date moments since the couple joined the cast of “We Got Married” in September 2014. Best known for their nickname SoRim, the virtual couple replaced 2PM's Wooyoung and Park Se Young, an equally cute pair with an unique dating style. For the February 7 episode, the fictitious newlyweds don uniforms to revisit their high school days. While some aspects of “We Got Married” may be way too personal for a first date, the variety show provides a wide range of activities which can be enjoyed by recluses and socialites. Here are seven dates, inspired by “We Got Married” and other Korean variety shows.

“We Got Married” often features high pressure dates as the couples engage in activities like wedding photo shoots. While these moments are interesting to watch, simple activities like Song Jae Lim and Kim So Eun's adorable high school date keep viewers coming back for more. They capped off the date by eating the staples of student's in Korea, spicy rice cakes. Beyond the scripted reality show, this date concept would serve as a way to break up the monotony and pressure brought on by an orchestrated Valentine's Day dinner. Taking a step into the past opens up the opportunity to discuss treasured memories of the past, especially if the couple did not attend the same school.

A-Pink's Eunji went on a karaoke date with Sungjae of BTOB for “Dating Alone.”

The premise of the show “Dating Alone” is unique and lends itself to long distance relationships. Celebrities like A-Pink's Eunji attend recorded virtual dates prior to attending outings like karaoke. Singing on a first date can be embarrassing unless you have an idol-worthy voice but the situation also provides the perfect ice breaker.

 2PM's Wooyoung and Park Se Young worked together to create chocolate masterpieces.

2PM's Wooyoung had fantastic date night ideas during “We Got Married,” even if concepts like ice fishing were a bit off base. Crafting or cooking together opens up dialogue and provides a chance for couples to evaluate their compatibility.

FTISLAND's Lee Hong Ki and Fuji Mina of “Global We Got Married” share housework and their hobbies.

One of the most intriguing couples on “Global We Got Married” was the in sync duo of Lee Hong Ki and Fiji Mina. They were an enviable power couple who worked as a team, while Taecyeon and Gui Gui struggled with their language barrier. While it may not seem like the most glamorous idea for a date night, the couple cleaned together, before exploring a mutual interest. A visit to the nail salon may not be of interest to some guys but finding a common thread was the biggest lesson of their nail date.
