Steven Yeun alongside 2NE1′s Sandara Park in new online comedy series
Korean American actor Steven Yeun, best known for his role in “The Walking Dead” plays himself in a new online comedy miniseries titled ”What’s Eating Steven Yeun” alongside 2NE1′s Sandara Park.
The premise of the debut episode revolves around Yeun wanting to make a name for himself in South Korea to make his parents proud, but finds out from his new manager that he has to start as a “Mokbang” — also known as “broadcast eating” — host.
South Korea’s Be FUNNY Studios is behind the production, further cementing its reputation for bringing Hollywood and South Korean actors together.
‘What’s Eating Steven Yeun’ with Sandara Park is the best thing both will ever do
‘What’s Eating Steven Yeun‘ is a web series that chronicles Steven Yeun‘s quest to become a mokbang (the eating broadcast dudes) star in Korea. Yes, really. It also stars 2NE1‘s Sandara Park and actors Park Hyuk Kwon and Park Young Kwang.
It it the greatest thing any of them will ever do.
“Oh, I guess this could be interesting.”
30 minutes later I had watched all three episodes, because it was so much better than I ever anticipated.
The netizen comments, though
Sandara is … good at comedy, actually.
“Ken Jeong? You said it was a boy genius, that dude’s like 45.”
“Americans can’t tell the difference.”
Then him and the assistant break into the Matthew McConaughey ‘Wolf Of Wall Street‘ chest beating shit.
Fan death suicide attempt? Fan death suicide attempt.
Steven Yeun and gwiyomi were two things I didn’t think I would ever see together.
Maybe I should’ve expected better though, since this was a Be Funny Studios effort, which is a collab between Creative Artists Agency, Funny Or Die, and Prain Global.
Either way, I need moar.
