SEOUL, Feb. 11 (Korea Bizwire) – American talk show host Conan O’Brien will shoot his “Conan” show in South Korea, a local fan who claims to have been contacted by the Conan team said Thursday.
O’Brien will arrive here on Sunday for a five-day journey that involves trips to downtown Seoul and a traditional Korean village in the city’s outskirts, a Naver blogger who goes by the alias KIMMYS said in a blog post. More than 1,100 people are subscribed to the blog which has been posting updates on O’Brien’s schedule in South Korea.
He will also likely try out “soju,” or Korean rice liquor, make kimchi and receive acupuncture, with a meeting with more than 200 fans scheduled for Monday.
Other rumors say O’Brien will make cameo appearances in a Wonder Girls music video and other local shows.
O’Brien had shown interest in Korean culture previously on his show. In an episode aired February 2015, O’Brien visited a Korean spa in Los Angeles with Korean-American actor Steven Yeun.’
