Musical actress, Kim Sa Eun has been competing on TV Chosun‘s Miss Trot 2 for the past few weeks. While she may have an incredible singing voice, she is most known for being the wife of Super Junior member, Sungmin. The two got married back in 2014, shocking the nation with their news. Super Junior fans turned their backs on Sungmin for “betraying” them with his sudden announcement. They claimed that he failed to handle the situation appropriately, leading to Super Junior fans boycotting him. They have repeatedly asked for his removal from the group since his marriage. Sungmin and his wife have seemingly been blacklisted by the Korean public due to these various claims.

On the most recent episode of Miss Trot 2, Kim Sa Eun stood on the stage to perform for the audience and the judges in a survival death match. While her singing was never a problem, it was Kim Sa Eun’s special guest for her performance that seemed to have had an influence on the results of the match. She chose to sing a song by Sim Soo Bong called “I Really Really Like You”. It wasn’t her song choice or her vocals that got the attention of everyone, however, but her husband Sungmin. He made a grand entrance, exciting the audience and the judges.

Their chemistry was truly unmatched on the stage, proving their love for one another. It was a particular part during her performance, however, that got everyone out of their seats in disbelief. The married couple went in for a full smooch during Kim Sa Eun’s performance, shocking everyone.
