Su Geun’s Rising Stock
It looks like Su Geun‘s making his way up the variety MC ladder these days. He’s really had his funny on for the past few months and its nice to see him gain some star power. After debuting as an actor (on comedy film Chopsticks), he’s signed onto a MC gig on a new variety show: Par★Star on KBS N Sports. (Not to be confused with Pasta cuz it looks the same when it’s written in Korean 파스타.) After being outed as top 1% of Korea in athletic ability, Lee Su Geun will lead a group of celebrities to participate in a semi-pro golf tour. (I think someone owes a drink to PD Na.)
Su Geun picked up golf last year and supposedly has become quite good in a short time. Well… when you’re top 1%, it shouldn’t be a surprise. He’s joined by comedians Seo Kyung Suk and Eom Kyung Hwan, actor Kim Han Seok, singer Ye Joon (of yet another boy band Focus), and LJ (not sure who this is). The show will feature the 6 men’s attempt to take over the golf world.
Par★Star will air its first episode tonight (4/23).
