Comedians Kim Joon Hyun and Kim Ki Lee are in trouble with a lot of people in Korea, thanks to an accidental (?) kiss with miss A’s Suzy.
On August 26, Suzy participated in KBS’ Gag Concert, where she acted as a girlfriend of comedian Song Joong Geun in the ‘Discovery of Life’ segment.
Towards the end of the act, Kim Joon Hyun, who was pretending to be Suzy’s real boyfriend, puckered up with Suzy for a fake kiss. Just then, Kim Ki Lee, whose trademark line is ‘You can’t do that here,’ managed to hit Kim Joon Hyun on the head with a tray, saying he shouldn’t be showing public displays of affection.
The impact however was strong enough to have Kim Joon Hyun and Suzy to collide, supposedly lip-locking and decorating the end of the comedy act with Suzy’s completely surprised face.
Following the broadcast, many netizens were angered that the nation’s first love had a kiss stolen by a comedian.
Comedian Kim Ki Lee gave a national apology on August 26, tweeting, “Everyone in Korea, I’m very sorry. As I watched the broadcast, I said to myself ‘You can’t do that here,’ and am self-reflecting. I will never hit another person with tray again.”
Suzy also tweeted following the broadcast, “I thought my ears would explode after hearing the loud sound of the tray. That’s why I was super surprised! My lips (REALLY) didn’t touch his!! It was a good experience! Gag Concert daebak! All the comedians in ‘Discovery of Life,’ you’re all amazing! (I hope there are no more misunderstandings)
Even after both tweets, netizens were still split in opinion, saying “I almost became Kim Joon Hyun’s anti-fan,” and “He’s become my enemy now.”
Meawhile, Gag Concert managed to rack up ratings of 23 percent, settling into the number one place for programs airing at the same time.
