Hong Suk Chun To Make Special Appearance Opposite Kim Min Jae In “Dali And Cocky Prince”
“Dali and Cocky Prince” is a new romantic comedy starring Kim Min Jae as Jin Mu Hak, a man who lacks schooling and book smarts but is extremely resourceful and talented at making a living, and Park Gyu Young as Kim Dal Li, a woman who is intellectually polished and comes from an elite background but doesn’t know how to take care of herself.
On September 21, the upcoming drama released a sneak peek of Hong Suk Chun’s special appearance as a chef. Jin Mu Hak, who spent his childhood helping his family grow a tiny gamja-tang (spicy pork backbone stew) restaurant into the global food corporation DonDon F&B, is a pork expert who can tell from just one bite of meat what region of Korea and what kind of pig it originated from.
In the drama’s latest stills, Hong Suk Chun looks nervous as he presents Jin Mu Hak with a carefully prepared new dish. Under the intimidating gaze of Jin Mu Hak’s assistant Yeo Mi Ri (played by Hwang Bo Ra), the chef anxiously watches the executive’s every move as he tastes his meal.
Soon afterwards, Hong Suk Chun seems taken aback by something Jin Mu Hak says, raising the question of whether he will be able to satisfy the pork expert’s unusually discerning palate.
The producers of “Dali and Cocky Prince” commented, “The scene that was energized by Hong Suk Chun’s cameo appearance is a scene that shows the full extent of how stringent and particular Jin Mu Hak, who cares deeply about pork, can be. Hong Suk Chun realistically acted out the process of a chef being gradually overcome by Mu Hak’s strength of presence.”
“Dali and Cocky Prince” premieres on September 22 at 9:30 p.m. KST and will be available with subtitles on Viki.
