[News] Kim Yeon Woo to appear in new MBC sitcom

Singer Kim Yeon Woo will appear on MBC in his first sitcom, the network announced on March 8.

In the new show, titled “Standby,” the 40-year-old will play the role of a quick-witted, budding scriptwriter who relies on flattery to get by at the TV station where he works.

“As a newbie to acting, I’m willing to give it my best,” Kim Yeon Woo said.

Kim Yeon Woo rose to fame after appearing on the singing survival show “I Am a Singer.” He will be joined on the new show by Ryu Jin, Park Joon Geum and Jung So Min.
