Park Bo Gum’s “Itaewon Class” Finale Cameo Has Viewers Hoping For A 2nd Season
Park Bo Gum made “Itaewon Class” viewers’ hearts flutter with an exciting cameo in the drama’s finale!
During the final episode of JTBC’s “Itaewon Class,” which aired on March 21, Park Bo Gum made a surprise appearance as a chef who was applying for a job at Oh Soo Ah (Kwon Nara)’s new restaurant. Although it had been previously announced that Park Bo Gum would be making a cameo in the hit drama’s finale, there had been no hints as to what kind of role he would be playing or when and where he would appear.
In the drama, Oh Soo Ah was unable to hide her surprise at Park Bo Gum’s handsome appearance from the moment she saw him. As soon as they locked eyes, she muttered quietly to herself, “Amazing,” and Hong Suk Chun—who was making a cameo of his own—urged her to hire him no matter what.
However, Oh Soo Ah insisted that a chef needed to be good at cooking, and she refused to be biased as she tested his culinary skills.
As Park Bo Gum nervously looked on, Oh Soo Ah carefully tasted his pasta—and after one bite, she immediately asked, “Can you start working tomorrow?” Park Bo Gum happily replied, “Yes, boss,” and the two characters smiled shyly at each other.
The cute scene, which appeared to hint at a potential romance between the two characters, stole viewers’ hearts. Park Bo Gum’s name immediately began trending in Korea’s realtime search rankings as some viewers pleaded, “Please make a Season 2 with a love line between Park Bo Gum and Kwon Nara.”
Park Bo Gum’s cameo in “Itaewon Class” came about due to his relationship with producing director (PD) Kim Sung Yoon, with whom he worked together on the hit KBS drama “Love in the Moonlight” back in 2016.
