Answer Me 1997’s cast to host SNL Korea

This show’s on fire, isn’t it? I would’ve bet on tvN’s Answer Me 1997 being a cult hit with a fervent small fanbase, but it’s turning into a bona fide mainstream hit. Its leads Jung Eun-ji and Seo In-gook were recent guests on Go Hyun-jung’s talk program GoShow, and now the cast will be hosting the upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live Korea.

According to articles, it’s not clear whether every cast member will be included, but Seo In-gook is for certain; here are a couple photos of him filming what must be an Answer Me parody. He’s pictured in high school uniform with SNL cast member Oh Cho-hee, who uploaded the pics to her me2day account. Eun Ji-won (Hak-chan) and Lee Shi-un (Sung-jae) are also confirmed.

SNL Korea just kicked off its new season this past weekend, so the Answer Me crew will be in the second episode, to air on September 15. The show used to structure itself into “seasons” (airing a bunch of episodes, taking some time off, then coming back with a new set), but now it’s secured a place on tvN’s permanent schedule as a fixed program.

The format hasn’t changed much (with the SNL brand, it can’t, really), though there have been a few tweaks and cast additions since the show premiered last winter. Shin Dong-yup has been added as an MC, which I guess is like a host, except he’s not called a “host” since that word refers to the guests of the week.

One change, however: It’s now a 19+ show, meaning content is deemed appropriate for viewers over the age of 19. Ha, then they have no excuse NOT to do a porno sketch with the boys, do they?

That's exactly whatI thought! The last time that happened was with Jack in Dawson's Creek; one day just the new guy in the series, one hair produt later, 'the hot guy in the series.' Makes me see hair, my own included, in a whole new light. Yeah, I could probably use some hair product.

Omg lol I'm sooooo looking forward to this! I watched the ep with super junior and didn't know what to expect purely as a fan.....but it was HILARIOUS :D
Cant wait to see what they do with the cast!!
I don't think Eunji will be on...since she's still a relatively new idol...but we'll see!

"In my next drama I won′t be a nice guy like Yoon Yoon Jae, but I′ll be a playboy that women hate. I don′t want to lock myself up behind one type of role; I want to grow by taking up a variety of roles," he said."

o.O He said that in an interview. I'm soooooo ready to his in that role.

Pretty please, make a recap of the episode. It´s nearly impossible to find SNL on-line somewhere, and futhermore subbed. Please with my puppy eyes.

Its been hard avoiding Answer Me 1997 while I wait for it to end so I can marathon it. So unlike everyone else I'm saying 'end it already so I can sit and watch it in one go.'

:D

Thats what I thought and held out till ep 14 was done. On Saturday evening last weekend, I couldnt hold out any longer and I thought since 14 eps were out, it will take me a while to finish the episodes and by then eps 15 and 16 would be out. Alas! I finished all the 14 eps by Sunday night and now I am hopelessly waiting for ep 15 and 16. Sheesh! Its so frustrating. I am caught in the exact situation that I wanted to avoid in the first place. But about the show itself, I have only one word: PERFECT! I love the cast, the dialogues, the pace at which it moves forward and how could I forget the OST. Everything abt it is perfect. It captured my teenage angst perfectly what with all the one sided crushes that my friends and I had on guys around us and the fangirlism. Love it so much!

Exactly my situation right now ;)

How I even held out until now, I'll never know...

I can probably start watching it already since there's already 15 episodes but I'll wait 'til there's no school the other day so I can marathon it with no worries :D. And cause it's more fun that way.

These guys need more variety shows. 1n2d if possible (yeah, right!).

Hoping Jung Eun Ji will come, it won't be the same without her. I'm glad that it not only bring the 2 lead to fame but all 6 of them (and mom and dad).

I'm torn. I'm really sad its going to end next week, but can't wait to find out the ending. It was a mistake to watch the preview.

Why Eun-ji is not anticipating?I love her.Though I've never listened A-pink's music.Although Seo In-guk is cute and lovely,it was Eun-ji who pulled the role being loved by 2 bro but not damsel in distress and perfect comic timing.I didn't like her at first but she attracts me weeks after weeks.How could she do that in her first lead role?

Thats so true. Forget the actor, I was so sure I wouldnt like the SW character. What with her crazy fangirlism, her constant brattiness and unreasonable fights with her dad, her Tony stalking scene, and the writing in blood scene and most of all pointedly ignoring Yoonjae's feelings for her, I was so sure I would hate her. But she grew on me and I began to think of all her antics as the little stupid things that I did when I was an adolescent. Things when I was doing them, felt right to me and then later I hung my head in shame. Her refusal to recognise Yoonjae's feelings is perhaps because deep down no adolescent wants things to change. As a teen, we resist change whether it is moving to a different locality caused by your dad's promotion or having to change equations in long time friendships because of the arrival of new friends. Maybe deep down she was so comfortable with him, that she did nt want to change the status quo between them. To sum it up, I love the character Shiwon and Eunji who played it so well. She rocks. Hopefully she plays such adorable roles in future as well.

Eunji's probably not participating because SNL Korea's a bit risque and totally not what A Pink's image is going for.

The only other idol group that ever appeared/hosted SNL Korea was Super Junior, and they're a boygroup with members who are all in their mid-20's and late 20's.

i guess if it's rated 19+, the likelihood of jung eunji turning out for SNL is nil. sadface. would've loved to see more SIG and JEJ's crackling off-screen chemistry.
