Korean-American singer and television host Eric Nam has opened up about working together with Solar, the main vocalist of South Korean girl group Mamamoo. The two are seen together in the South Korean reality show, We Got Married.

During an interview, Nam gushed about the 27-year-old singer. He said: "I want to maintain my friendship with her, calling each other whenever a good or bad thing happens. I realized that my personality matches well with hers after getting to know each other. My wish that I told her when we were in Jeju Island became a hot topic. I really meant it when I said that I wanted to speak informally with her. That's the only way we would become close. Getting to speak informally was the key."

"I called her 'honey' from time to time and it made me cringe. I just got comfortable while filming the last two or three episodes. I thought Solar was a playful person but it surprised me that she was the total opposite. I was very worried at first because this felt like I was signing a marriage contract," Nam added.

He continued: "The people in the studio wanted us to get closer quicker, but that doesn't match with our concept. My actual goal when marrying in real life is to live like friends even after marriage."

We Got Married airs every Saturday 17:00 KST on MBC.
