Cha Tae-hyun brings in several high-class cameos for The Best Hit
The Best Hit just got a lot more interesting considering that the man who got me interested in dramas, Jang Hyuk (Voice), aka Dae-gilaaaaa, will have a cameo appearance in the show in support of his best friend Cha Tae-hyun (The Producers), who is co-directing the new KBS variety-drama. Voice was too scary for me to watch, so any chance I get to see Jang Hyuk is a bonus.
In addition to Jang Hyuk, several other stars have signed on to cameo in support of Cha Tae-hyun, with four appearing in the first episode alone. In the first episode, Lee Kwang-soo (Entourage) will play a bad boyfriend to Lee Se-young (Laurel Tree Tailors), Choi Hwa-jung (Jealousy Incarnate) will play a prominent radio DJ who cannot separate work from real life. Ahn Gil-kang (Mystery Queen) will play a brutal criminal who is shy and weak when it comes to a woman’s charms, and Go Chang-seok (Kim Seon-dal) will play a clumsy photographer.
In the second episode, Jang Hyuk will cameo as “Bluetooth Man,” and play a person who startles Yoon Shi-yoon (Mirror of the Witch) by talking to himself. It seems the ’90s idol will be unfamiliar with newfangled technology, which should make for some entertaining fish-out-of-water jokes.
Cha Tae-hyun must really be well-loved in the entertainment industry, because everyone and their mama is making cameo appearances for him. The Producers and 1 Night 2 Days also had several guest appearances from Cha Tae-hyun’s friends, which makes me think his phone must be a golden Rolodex of every star in Korea. Gimme.
Now I’m dying to see the first two episodes The Best Hit, with this rainbow of veteran comedy actors participating. I suspect there will be a lot of ad-libbing and barrels of laughter on set, which hopefully translates into a hilarious premiere.
KBS’s The Best Hit will air on Friday-Saturday beginning June 2, following a Best Hit Prologue which will air the preceding hour.
