Lee Dong Wook was a Funny Man on Previous ‘Strong Heart’ Episode
Lee Dong Wook will be the new host of SBS’ Strong Heart with another, as-of-yet undecided MC to follow in Lee Seung Gi’s footsteps.
If you’re worried about whether he’ll be any good, check out this previous ‘appearance’ he made on Strong Heart in the past.
On the episode of Strong Heart that aired in November 2011, Lee Dong Wook helped Boom out with his first variety appearance after he had been released from the military.
At the time, Boom had introduced Lee Dong Wook as “a very funny man who is skilled in variety.” He then called Lee Dong Wook over the phone, saying, “He’s a figure that Boom Academy wants to recruit.”
During the phone call, to a question on which member of Girls’ Generation he was a fan of, he immediately chose Taeyeon.
Taeyeon wasn’t on the show, so Sunny imitated Taeyeon in her stead, saying, “Let’s have dinner together.”
Lee Dong Wook made everyone laugh by answering “Okay” without any hesitation.
Boom said about his military senior Lee Dong Wook, “Even while we were going to bed I kept talking to Lee Dong Wook about the good things about variety to draw him into variety.”
Boom’s efforts will finally be repaid with Lee Dong Wook’s new attempt to step into the variety spotlight as the host of Strong Heart.
The episode of Strong Heart featuring Lee Dong Wook as the new MC will be revealed on April 10.
