Song Ji Hyo 2018: Haha To Appear In ‘Running Man’ Co-Star’s New Drama ‘Lovely Horribly'; Will Gary Do A Cameo?
Haha will soon showcase his acting prowess in a drama production. To show his support for fellow Running Man cast member Song Ji Hyo, the rapper agreed to make a guest appearance in the actress' new drama Lovely Horribly.
Avid Running Man fans will soon see two members of the SBS variety show in the upcoming drama titled Lovely Horribly, also known as Lovely Horror-vely. Unlike Song Ji Hyo who plays a lead role in the said production, Haha will only appear in a cameo role during the early part of the series.
The rapper's participation in the upcoming Lovely Horribly series was confirmed by a member of the drama's production team. In a recent interview, the source revealed that Haha already completed filming activities for his scenes in Song Ji Hyo's drama.
However, details about the musician's role were not revealed. Haha reportedly accepted the offer to appear in Lovely Horribly given his close friendship with Song Ji Hyo. The two celebrities have been working together for eight years in the SBS long-running variety series Running Man.
Cast members of the SBS show have been known to make special appearances in some of their co-stars' new projects. Lee Kwang Soo made a guest appearance in Descendants of the Sun to convey his support for his good friend and former Running Man cast member Song Joong Ki. Song Ji Hyo also appeared in Lee Kwang Soo's 2016 tvN drama Entourage.
With Haha joining Lovely Horribly as a special guest, many fans are also hoping that Gary will do a cameo appearance in the said drama. Dubbed as the "Monday Couple," Song Ji Hyo and Gary had a close bond on the SBS variety show. The Leesang rapper even appeared in the actress' 2014 drama Emergency Couple.
At this time, it is still unclear if Gary will reunite with Song Ji Hyo in Lovely Horribly. After leaving Running Man in November 2017, the musician has been busy with his music and taking care of his baby son.
Meanwhile, the upcoming drama Lovely Horribly tells the story of the unlucky scriptwriter Eul Soon whose story plots would sometimes happen in real life. Portrayed by Song Ji Hyo, she meets top actor Philip (Park Si Hoo) who has always been lucky in his career and personal life.
Lovely Horribly is expected to premiere in August on KBS. The Song Ji Hyo drama will replace the sci-fi romance series Are You Human Too.
