Lee Kwang-soo makes cameo appearance in The Best Hit
Lee Kwang-soo (Entourage) will be making a special cameo appearance on upcoming KBS variety-drama The Best Hit, playing Lee Se-young’s (Laurel Tree Tailors) boyfriend named Yoon-ki. The actor stated that he’d be doing this as a special favor out of loyalty to his friend Cha Tae-hyun (Producers), an actor who is in the director’s chair for the first time, co-helming this new project with 1 Night 2 Days PD Yoo Ho-jin.
The Best Hit is a variety-style drama about how a group of young people in their mid-twenties navigate through life’s difficulties such as struggling to find love, achieve career goals, and procure basic necessities like food. Lee Se-young plays Choi Woo-seung (Korean translation: First Winner), a civil service exam student who has failed the test for the past three years. In the still cuts below, scenes of her and Kim Min-jae (The Lonely Shining Goblin) show a cute romantic vibe blooming between them. Hmm so does that mean we’ll be getting a comedic Lee Kwang-soo/Lee Se-young/Kim Min-jae love triangle? Because Giraffe Lee Kwang-soo as a lonely third wheel in any social situation is absolutely hilarious.
Kim Min-jae plays a model student who leads a double life as an idol trainee. Yoon Shi-yoon (Mirror of the Witch) will also be starring as a successful musician whose fame and reputation are ravaged by sensationalistic paparazzi stories that reveal his personal relationships. Originally, I thought the main love line would be between Lee Se-young and Yoon Shi-yoon, but looking at these new photos, I must admit Kim Min-jae and Lee Se-young are too adorable together. In the drama, these two will be playing best friends (who hopefully become something more) who know each other in and out.
Recent stills also show Cha Tae-hyun and Yoon Son-ha (Six Flying Dragons) looking like they’ve got strong chemistry of their own. She will be playing Kim Min-jae’s mother, and he will be playing his legal (although not biological) father. Cha Tae-hyun’s character, Lee Kwang-jae, is the CEO of a tiny no-name entertainment company, while Yoon Son-ha was once nicknamed the “Innocent Fairy” of Korea in her heyday as a star singer. He’s nurtured a 20-year-long one-sided crush on her, staying by her side through thick and thin ever since.
Friday-Saturday drama The Best Hit will begin airing on June 2.
