Has the forever choding graduated to high school? Our first still from the set of upcoming tvN sitcom Answer to 1997 shows Eun Ji-won (1 Night 2 Days) back to his 90s self, dressed in a high school uniform and pouting for the camera. He tweeted the picture from the set, calling himself Eun Goding, turning his own choding grade-school persona into a high-schooler one. Why so cute? And are you really going to be playing a high schooler on this show?
The sitcom will be about 90s idols and the k-pop industry of yore (awww yeah), which means it will be full of references to the days when Eun Ji-won was an idol himself. It’s possible I am the only person excited about a sitcom about 90s k-pop. I can’t be the ONLY ONE. Right? Someone else out there knows all the words to a RooRa song, despite all attempts to scrub it from memory, right?
Directing is PD Shin Won-ho of Happy Sunday’s Qualifications of Men, and writer Lee Woo-jung of 1 Night 2 Days. Well that explains the Eun Ji-won love. (Not that everyone shouldn’t love Eun Ji-won.) The cast includes Seo In-guk, Jung Eun-ji, Hoya, and Sung Dong-il.
The show has also added Lee Shi-un to the cast (pictured below), whom you’ll likely recognize as a supporting actor from lots of dramas. He was most recently in The King 2 Hearts and his biggest role to date was probably in Friend, Our Legend. He’ll be playing a rich kid from Busan called OG Rapper. Pffffft. I think I’m gonna luff this show. Please be funny. Please be funny.
