Ahn Jung Hwan, B1A4’s Baro Among New Members for Jokgu Team on “Cool Kiz on the Block”
KBS2 variety show “Cool Kiz on the Block” finished up several episodes that focused on tennis and have moved onto training for their next sport, jokgu. Filming has already started for the jokgu episodes with new cast members including Ahn Jung Hwan and Baro.
Jokgu is a popular sport in Korea that fuses elements of soccer (football) and volleyball.
Cast members from the tennis episodes who have finished up their stint on the show are Shin Hyun Joon, Sung Si Kyung, Sung Hyuk, Cool’s Lee Jae Hoon, Cha Yoo Ran, and Lee Kyu Hyuk. Remaining on are Kang Ho Dong, Jung Hyung Don, and Yang Sang Guk. The three will bring laughs with the new members and coaches as they take on jokgu.
Four new members will be joining them for jokgu: former soccer (football) star Ahn Jung Hwan, TV personality Sam Okyere, actor Lee Kyu Han, and singer and actor Baro of B1A4. In particular, the program put a lot of effort into casting Ahn Jung Hwan. He confirmed that he talked with the producers a lot before deciding to appear on the show. All four of the new members were cast not only for their jokgu skills, but for their “variety sense” and ability to make the program fun.
“Cool Kiz on the Block” airs every Tuesday.
