Conan O’Brien Did a Talk Show at DMZ, Guest Starred in Korean Soap Opera and K-Pop Song, and Tried Tae Kwon Do All While in Korea
The Conan in Korea special was pretty much everything you’d want it to be.
Not only do you get a great sense of how great Korea is and the history behind its people, but you also get to see things like Conan O’Brien do the string dance in a K-Pop music video.
Also on Conan’s itinerary was:
–being greeted like a rock star even though Conan doesn’t air in Korea
–annoying another foreign language instructor
–galavanting around a local fish market
–guest starring in a Korean soap opera with a very Conan-esque role
–hang at a Korean gaming cafe known as a “PC Bang”
–being goaded into breaking boards while trying Tae Kwon Do
–discovering that Steven Yeun doesn’t know as much about Korean food as he had hoped
–uncovering that certain Buddhist monks are more with the times than he thought
–doing a faux talk show ‘North Korea style’ while having his feet over in North Korean territory at the Joint Security Area
All in all, O’Brien proves yet again that he’s a great ambassador even though he’s intentionally parading around like a very tall clown.
