Park Hwi-soon "guarantees high ratings" for "Hot Brothers" (2) 2010/05/25, Source, Park Hwi-soon (left) and Lee Gi-kwang [MBC] Q: Putting Park Myeong-soo, Kim Goo-ra and Tak Jae-hoon is a new combination. How does it feel? Park Myeong-soo: It is always difficult to create a new picture and new laughs. That is why the union of a new cast members is important. These days, doing the show with Kim Goo-ra and Jae-hoon has brought a new source of humor because they can make you laugh by just saying something. I hadn't worked with the younger cast members before either, but I think a lot of things will change depending on how the older guys do on the show.

While I was shooting the fourth episode, I realized that the key issue was how much each person contributes to the show. In the case of "Daemang" on "Sunday Sunday Night", the segment had outstanding cast such as Kim Yong-man and Sin Jeong-hwan. But "Hot Brothers" is different. I appear on the segment with these guys but I am on a different level compared to them, in terms of salary and circumstances. I thought -- for the first time that I have been doing variety programs -- that I should start taking other people into my consideration,...More
