I have been a Lee Kwang Soo fan for years, so I am really happy to see him finally being acknowledged for not just his variety talent. It has been a long time coming, but I think that South Korean entertainment is ready to take some baby steps away from its traditional pretty casting and give some great comedians a chance to shine. I am also thinking of Kim Seul-Gi who was finally able to land a leading lady role in Splash Splash Love. Maybe if we are lucky we will see more surprise castings in 2016.
But for now, we can enjoy them in these mini-dramas. The latest which is Puck! about a good guy (Kwang Soo) who is forced to work for a gang boss collecting debts. He joins a local hockey team in order to force the coach to pay up. While this will be a departure from his usual comedic characters, the trailer gives off a feeling of hope and finding one’s self which is engaging. Puck! airs January 1st and is 2 episodes long.
