Yook and Joy are joining 'We Got Married' in the midst of the departure of two couples."We Got Married" previously announced the departure of popular cast members Song Jae Rim and Kim So Eun, due to upcoming acting commitments.
On June 2, MBC also confirmed the departure of Super Junior-M's Henry and Yewon, from the program. Henry and Yewon joined the cast in March 2015. However, their appearance on the show was controversial, due to a scandal involving Yewon and actress Lee Tae Im.
