Jung Il-woo’s upcoming High Kick 3 cameo

Jung Il-woo owes the original High Kick series (The Unstoppable High Kick) for shooting him to overnight stardom in 2007, and he cameo’d in the sequel series in 2009. Now he’s heading back to the franchise for a cameo in High Kick 3: Counterattack of the Short Legs, starring as himself.

Well, kind of but not really. He plays a senior in high school named Il-woo, but I suppose that’s the only similarity to his real self. I’m a little bummed that he isn’t reprising his original character, frankly, because it would be hilarious to see alpha-rebels Yun-ho and Jong-seok in the same classroom trying to out-brood each other, no?

(Also: It would’ve given his best buddy Kim Bum an excuse to join him in the cameo, if they both played their High Kick 1 characters — which is doubly hilarious because those two characters didn’t really like each other much. Oh, all the things that could have been!)

Like the teenaged Yun-ho harbored a one-sided love for a teacher in the original series, his character in this cameo also falls for an older woman. But this time the age gap is just a wee bit bigger — it’s Yoo-sun whom he falls for at first sight. Ha. Apparently they go on a date and Yoo-sun wears a uniform, the reason for which has yet to be disclosed, which leads me to wonder: How is it that (more or less) happily married Yoo-sun is getting all these dates? First the effete musician man, and now the hot high schooler? Mom’s workin’ some mojo.

Jung Il-woo’s storyline will be featured in the show’s 40th episode, which airs next Monday, November 21.

I think somehow she's forced to wear her daughter's school uni because it's the only thing available in a situation. I echo JB's wish for a Kim Bum cameo, although I live in hope after reading the JIW interview where he said that he and LMH had pledged to act together in a project before they turn 30. Add KB to that mix and the ratings would spike like Yang Eun Bi smacking a volleyball! :-)

If I were in her shoes, I would do a couple of NGs just to stay in his arms a tad longer. Or say something in reference to FBRS like: "So this is your true scent..."

Or she could cause an NG by calling him with the wrong surname.

Park Il-woo?
Kim Il-woo?

*sings* "Soojung's mom has got it goin' on..." Ugh, that song is stuck in my head now. So wrong.

On a more serious note, I love Yoo-sun and it's nice to see her getting more focus. As much of a wish-fulfillment storyline as this is, I kind of wish we could see other storylines for an adult woman than just romance - and weird romance at that. That gangpae-musician was just creepy, though I guess his appeal is how different he was from her husband.

I get that the whole menopause thing has her questioning her feminine appeal and/or her hormones are out of whack, but couldn't we see her explore her role and relationships as a mother and wife, you know, other than just cooking and cleaning for everyone? (I'd like to see her go on strike and make Nae-sang do the cooking.) I think we probably will see something like that though, so I'm content to wait. One of the things I really like about HK3 is how we get to see characters and relationships develop.

The BEST High Kick cameo is Jung Il-Woo in High Kick Through the Roof. His first-love story with Hwang Jung Eum was so cute and touching.

Has anyone noticed that Jung Il-woo seems to do really well with romance with older female characters? Actually, it seems like he's on a trend here. His last three roles, and FBRS, and now this.

well... that ~is~ the trend lately, and Jung Il Woo is generally known as the "noona killer".
It's the same way the Lee Seung Gi, early on, was always matched with older ladies because of his Noona song haha
