The famed directors behind The Matrix series and the upcoming Cloud Atlas are sitting down with the guys of MBC’s Kneedrop Guru.

In Korea for the first time to promote their upcoming epic sci-fi/fantasy movie Cloud Atlas, the Wachowski siblings will sit down with Kang Ho Dong, Kwang Hee and Yoo Se Yoon in the morning of December 14 to film an episode together.

Bae Doo Na is also expected to film for the episode as well.

The episode marks the first time in the talk show’s history that a foreign guest has appeared and the first time the show will require a translator on hand.

Their agreement to appear on the show is also all the more extraordinary considering the pair are notoriously shy and reluctant about giving interviews.

Despite it being the first time the Wachowski siblings have visited Korea, the two have worked with Korean actors in the past including Rain in Speed Racer and Bae Doo Na for Cloud Atlas.

On top of their extensive careers, many are wondering if Lana Wachowski, who transitioned in the past few years from male to female, will talk about her experience.

The episode has not set an air date but will likely air in January while Cloud Atlas premieres on January 10.
