Hong Gil Dong special to air after series ends
As suspected, Hong Gil Dong will follow its final episode on Wednesday (26th) with a special episode to broadcast on Thursday (27th).
The special will be hosted by comedian Jung Hyung Don and announcers Choi Song Hyun and Jeon Hyun Mu, wearing the costumes worn by the three series leads. They’ll talk to actors and share behind-the-scenes talk on the set of Hwal Bin Dang’s headquarters, and answer questions picked from those posted by viewers on the show’s message board. There’ll also be the typical special-episode fare, with replays of best scenes and a collection of NGs (outtakes). The episode has been rather quickly slapped together after an Olympic qualifying baseball game pre-empted the broadcast on the 13th (but in my opinion, these things always feel kind of repetitive anyway, so that’s no big loss).
Next week, Hong Gil Dong relinquishes its timeslot to the drama Three Dads, One Mom starring Eugene, Jo Hyun Jae (who turned down the role of Gil Dong, coincidentally — I think he would’ve been a good pick, although not to the level of Kang Ji Hwan), Jae Hee, and Shin Sung Rok.
