M.I.B’s Kangnam Chooses Lee Gook Joo as His Role Model


Male group M.I.B‘s Kangnam, a rising star of the variety scene, has revealed he looks up to comedienne Lee Gook Joo.

On October 29, the members of MBC’s new ‘real-variety’ show, “Hello! Stranger,” gathered to the MBC headquarters in Sangam for a press conference.

During the event, Kangnam made everyone laugh by saying, “I want this program to succeed, so the PD would use a lot of money and send us abroad.”

When asked if he has a personal role model, he replied, “I learnt a lot about making others laugh from Lee Gook Joo. She feels like a role model and an industry senior.”

Meanwhile, “Hello! Stranger” follows the lives of eight young foreigners staying at a guest house run by comedian Kim Gwang Gyu. The show airs on Thursdays at 11:15 p.m.
