Lee returns as host to SNL Korea


Lee Hwi-jae

Nearly a decade after leaving the show, comedian Lee Hwi-jae returns to reign over Saturday Night Live (SNL) Korea this weekend.

In the early 1990s, Lee dominated the entertainment scene with his signature 15-minute skit entitled “Life Cinema.” Entertainers like actress Kim Hye-soo guest-starred and showed their hilarious sides to viewers.

CJ E&M, the company operating tvN, said that details of the upcoming episode were not confirmed yet. In the current fifth season, the broadcaster selected ‘90s icons as the show’s hosts. Starting with singer Park Ji-yoon, hip-hop group DJ DOC, TV personality Joo Byung-jin and singer Jo Sung-mo, the 90’s K-pop bestselling icon, guest-starred on the program with the original crew members, led by comedian Shin Dong-yup.

Lee Hwi-jae has been appearing in the KBS reality show “Return of Superman” with his 12-month-old twin sons since November.
