Hmm… These two… are too obvious sometimes. Sigh
I wonder how many things have MBC hided away from us? First were the couple rings, now this? I guess that they want to protect uri couple as well ^^
On this week’s broadcast of MBC’s “We Got Married”, the “Khuntoria” couple transformed into director Nichkhun and actress Victoria to shoot the teaser video for their performance at the MBC’s ‘2010 Gayo Daejun’.
Nichkhun was given a mission by MBC’s Kim Yoon Gon PD to create a teaser video, and since Nichkhun has already demonstrated his ability to produce and direct music videos, he decided to take on both the planning and the production of their teaser video.
For the video’s cast, Nichkhun chose his ‘wife’ as the main female role without a second thought. Other actors that were cast for the video included Nichkhun himself, 2PM’s Chansung and Junho, as well as 2AM’s Seulong and Jinwoon.
During his one-to-one interview, Nichkhun complimented and gave Victoria a passing grade for her perfect ‘cold-urban-girl’ character concept.
After their rehearsal for their couple dance stage, Nichkhun unexpectedly asked Victoria to call him oppa.
Victoria had mentioned that after seeing how affectionate Nichkhun was towards his little sisters, she wanted to call him oppa too, but was worried he wouldn’t like it. So when Victoria heard Nichkhun, she became flustered and flushed.
On the car journey, Victoria repeatedly asked Nichkhun for the meaning of the lyrics for JYP’s “Elevator”. Nichkhun immediately refused, “There’s no need to know. You are still too young, I am Oppa” Victoria was rendered speechless for a while before calling him ‘Oppa”, causing Nichkhun to feel good.
Victoria became excited and whispered to Nichkhun, “Oppa, don’t speak formally with me”
Nichkhun mentioned in his blackroom interview that he wished for Victoria to call him Oppa, because doing so made him feel like Victoria’s man.
