'Sungjoy' ship crashes: Red Velvet's Joy dating P Nation's Crush, not BTOB's Sungjae
Twitter saw a variety of funny reactions from fans who ship Sungjae and Joy, who while supportive, were sad about her new relationship with Crush
BTOB’s Sungjae and Red Velvet’s Joy were seen together on one of the most loved variety show from MBC called ‘We Got Married’ during its fourth season. In the show, celebrities from K-Pop or K-Dramas/Movies were paired off to live together like a married couple would, performing various challenges and activities together. The show had 4 seasons and aired from 2008 to 2017.
The appearance of Sungjae and Joy in the fourth season also marked a high point for the show's popularity, with the most number of celebrity couples the show has ever seen. ‘We God Married’ also inspired several spin-offs, including a Chinese and global edition of the show that featured non-Korean celebrities.
Season 4 of 'We Got Married'
The fourth season of the show had 373 episodes out of which Joy and Sungjae appeared in 45 episodes. The episodes were numbered 276-320. During their appearance on the show, both Sungjae and Joy appeared extremely comfortable around each other and made fans swoon over their chemistry.
While they were on the show, Joy and Sungjae performed tasks like washing one another's faces and going out on dates. Their show 'romance' was loved and appreciated by fans for a long time. Both Joy and Sungjae called themselves the “Bbyu couple.” Bbyu comes from the word Bubu which means “Married Couple” in Korean.
Sungjoy fans overwhelmed
After the couple flaunted their chemistry on the show, fans started to notice their interactions outside the show too. During the time when Joy appeared as the main lead on the K-Drama ‘Tempted: The Great Seducer’, fans loved her chemistry with actor Woo Dohwan. During the Seoul Music Awards show in 2018, Woo Dohwan was on stage talking about how he had gotten closer to Joy during the filming of the drama.
Dohwan then addressed Joy and asked her, “Sooyoung are you doing well?” (Sooyoung is Joy’s birth name) to which she stood up and greeted him. Sitting behind Joy was Sungjae with other members of BTOB. Fans noticed how Sungjae’s expression changed when he heard Dohwan address Joy as Sooyoung.
