On September 19, the production team behind SBS’ “Roommate 2” revealed that comedienne Lee Gook Joo, After School’s Nana, and KARA’s Heo Young Ji will be roommates. They will take residence in the triple room of the house. Earlier the same day, they also revealed two other pairs—Park Joon Hyung and Otani Ryohei, and Girls’ Generation’s Sunny and actress Bae Jong Ok.
Lee Gook Joo has been gaining much popularity through “Comedy Big League” and various variety programs. Nana, on the other hand, has been busy promoting Orange Caramel across Asia. Heo Youngji has received many compliments as the newest addition to KARA. The three are among the trendiest stars of late, and fans are anticipating what kind of chemistry they would bring to the show. According to accounts from the set, the individual charms of the trio made it hard to believe that the show comprised of new and old members.
