Did you know that Saturday Night Live exists in Korea as well? Already in its 8th season, SNL Korea features popular comedians like Shin Dong-yeop and Kim Joon-hyun. Recently, the show invited K-pop girl group TWICE to host the show, reaching the highest Nielsen ratings in current season.
But the true star of SNL Korea is still entitled to Kwon Hyuk-soo. Kwon Hyuk-soo, a Korean actor who also starred in Korean drama series, Lucky Romance, started his acting career as a crew member of SNL Korea Season 2 in 2012.
It was until very recently that he remained as a nameless (ironically, his only known line – if anyone remembers – was the part he says “My name is Kwon Hyuk-soo” at the end of the show’s Weekend Update).
It was when he found his talent in lip syncing that he became a star. Here is a video clip of his most well known lip sync parody, a scene from Korean sitcom series, High Kick!
If you ask who Kwon Hyuk-soo is in the video, all three of them are him.
He also turns into Sailor Moon with TWICE members…
And of course, he covered Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen as well.
No one knows what he will cover in the next episode, but we sure know that it will well surprise us!
