tvN’s SNL Korea asked not only Miranda Kerr to appear as a guest, but also Zhang Ziyi, who will also be visiting South Korea this week to attend the 2013 Chinese Film Festival at Yeouido CGV and Busan CGV.

Sadly, it fell through. SNL Korea personnel said in an interview that “(Zhang Ziyi) positively reviewed the opportunity, however she felt burdened to appear on the show alone.” He added, “It’s a shame that she can’t appear this time, but hopefully we will have another chance in the future.”

If Zhang Ziyi had accepted the request, she could be appearing with Miranda Kerr on SNL Korea on June 15th.
