Aw, yay, I love how everyone is jumping on the cameo train for High Kick‘s Season 3. Kim Bum, one of the breakout stars who made it big after the original Unstoppable High Kick, will be swinging by the current season for a cameo appearance, out of loyalty to the franchise. Or maybe he just couldn’t let his buddy Jung Il-woo outshine him in the cameo department.
He already shot his episode over the last two days, for a storyline involving Soo-jung (Crystal)’s character. It would be nice to give Soo-jung a few more layers, other than the allowance-monger and annoying kid sister (and let’s not forget her violent temper), because she’s one of the more two-dimensional characters in that universe. Perhaps Kim Bum will be another 24-hour boyfriend? It’d be better if he were someone more meaningful, like the way they used Yoon Shi-yoon‘s cameo as part of Ha-sun’s really sad and touching backstory. I’d love it if Soo-jung could be given some depth like that, ’cause mostly I find her bratty.
There’s just something really sweet about guys like Kim Bum and Jung Il-woo coming back to do cameos for the franchise that made them popular. Warm fuzzies, all around. Kim Bum just wrapped on his cable drama Padam Padam, and is traveling throughout Asia for fanmeetings and such. His cameo will appear in Episode 108, which airs Thursday March 8.
