Kim Seon Ho Is An Icon Of Misfortune In “Welcome To Waikiki 2”
“Welcome to Waikiki 2” will follow along the lines of the first season, telling the stories of the youths living in the Waikiki guesthouse as they pursue their friendships, love, and dreams. Returning from the first season is Lee Joon Ki (played by Lee Yi Kyung), this time bringing his high school friends Cha Woo Sik (played by Kim Seon Ho) and Kook Ki Bong (played by Shin Hyun Soo). Other new additions to the Waikiki family are Han Soo Yeon (played by Moon Ga Young), Kim Jung Eun (played by Ahn So Hee), and Cha Yoo Ri (played by Kim Ye Won).
Kim Seon Ho plays the prickly Cha Woo Sik, Lee Joon Ki’s high school friend who is persuaded to live at the guesthouse. After making a flashy debut as an idol and getting a taste of failure, he makes his living as an aspiring singer who teaches singing classes and performs at weddings.
In the released photos, Kim Seon Ho comes across a series of unfortunate incidents, bringing out both comedy and pity in the situations. Though he looks ordinary and chic in one photo, he is an absolute mess in another. In one instance, he holds a bouquet of flowers and looks desperate with his watering eyes, all the while dealing with a bloody nose. In another photo, he wears a flashy and tacky blue tuxedo with a guitar strapped to his back, looking quite remorseful. In the last photo, he is screaming while covered in dirt.
The production staff stated, “He is adding another level of charm to his character by adding a touch of reality to the funny scenes. Viewers will fall for this new charm of his.”
“Welcome to Waikiki 2” will air its first episode on March 25 at 9:30 p.m. KST. Watch it on Viki when it premieres!
