On May 18, American singer-songwriter Jason Mraz will take the stage at SNL Korea. He's in the country for a performance in Seoul on May 17.
In addition to Mraz, the upcoming SNLK episode will feature Sam Hammington from MBC′s Real Man, politician Lee Jun Seok, athelete Song Chong Gug and musicians JK Kim Dong Wook and Younha.
Producers of SNL Korea commented on Mraz's role in remaking SNLK's image, saying "We′ll be taking another step from the original actor, singer, idol star and comedian hosts we′ve featured before to bring in politicians, sports stars and celebrities rarely seen on variety. Through this feat, SNL Korea will be able to cover more ground and colors."
"Celebrities from various areas will be putting on SNL Korea′s trademark sexy and dumb humor along with self-parodies and self-disses in the show′s skits to heat up this Saturday night," said the show's chief producer An Sang Hui.
