Kim Bum makes cameo appearance on High Kick
His former Unstoppable High Kick castmates Kim Hye-sung and Jung Il-woo have already done it (Kim in the first episode and Jung more recently in the episode that aired on October 28), so now it’s Kim Bum‘s turn to make a cameo appearance on that sitcom’s pseudo-sequel, High Kick Through the Roof.
Originally, Kim Bum was set to appear with Jung Il-woo but explained, “The director felt it would be a waste for us to come out at once. So when Il-woo hyung went to shoot, I went along and just watched. I’ll be filming soon. I think I’ll find out the concrete details of the shoot on that day. I’m already looking forward to it.”
In the original series, Kim Bum played an innocent, goofy high school student who was best friends with Kim Hye-sung (the two boys were unabashed with their best-friend love for each other, to the annoyance of Kim’s cooler, rebellious younger brother Jung Il-woo). For that reason, Kim Bum started out hating Kim Hye-sung’s girlfriend (played as a ditz by Park Min-young), and complications arose when he started developing feelings for her, too. According to earlier reports, Park is also planning to make a cameo, and if it happens, she’ll probably be next.
From what I’ve seen (and I want to see more), High Kick Through the Roof is cute and entertaining — if only it weren’t so long! It has been doing well in the ratings and raising the profiles of its young leads, namely Shin Se-kyung, Hwang Jung-eum, Seo Shin-ae, and Yoon Shi-yoon. With the numbers creeping up into the high teens, the latest episode drew a 19.7%, putting it within a hair of breaking the 20% mark.
