Comedian Kim Young-cheol [SCREEN CAPTURE]

 
Comedian Kim Young-cheol posted a picture of himself at Incheon International Airport on Wednesday, announcing a week-long business trip to the U.S.
 
“There’s been a proposal from a U.S. agency to do a show together so I’m leaving for that.” He offered no further details yet.
 
Kim has been open about his aspirations to become a “global comedian” and his dreams of doing stand-up comedy in English.  
 
The comedian is known for being fluent in English even though he has never lived in an English-speaking country. The comedian even published several English study guides and hosted a radio show called “Young-cheol’s English.”  
 
Wooyoung of boy band 2PM will be replacing Kim as host of the morning radio show “Kim Young-cheol’s Power FM” this week.
