Kim Jong Kook And Yang Se Chan To Host New Season Of Beloved Soccer Variety Show
On December 12, it was reported that “Fly Shoot Dori” (literal title) began filming its new season. This show previously aired from 2005 to June 2014 and chronicled the adventures of a children’s soccer league.
“Fly Shoot Dori — New Beginning” will tell the story of Team Shoot Dori’s seventh league, made up of young soccer players with varying soccer skills. Children who are in need of friends will meet each other through soccer and grow together. The show recently gained attention after its alumni and third league member Lee Kang In became the rising star of the U-20 South Korean team. He led his team to the FIFA U-20 World Cup finals in June and he currently plays as a midfielder for Valencia CF.
Kim Jong Kook and Yang Se Chan have been confirmed as the show’s MCs. Kim Jong Kook is an original member of “Fly Shoot Dori” and a big fan of soccer. Yang Se Chan is reported to have joined the show thanks to Kim Jong Kook’s recommendation. The two became close after working together as cast members on SBS’s “Running Man” and will appear as friends and “uncles” to the children on this new show.
“Fly Shoot Dori — New Beginning” will air a prequel in mid-December with past footage of the first six leagues and messages of support from soccer players. The new season will premiere on January 7, 2020.
