What does 2NE1 and “The Walking Dead” have in common? The answer lies in the new comedy skit ” What’s Eating Steven Yeun ?”
On November 13, Be FUNNY Studios in conjunction with Funny or Die uploaded the comedic series featuring “The Walking Dead” star Steven Yeun and Sandara Park (Dara) of 2NE1.
Portraying a couple, the series chronicles Yeun as he leaves America to try to establish a career in Korea.
“Forever wishing and dreaming to have Dara star in her own Korean romantic comedy,” commented amethyst21 on allkpop.
“For now, acting with a great actor like Steven Yeun is a beautiful surprise.” “What’s Eating Steven Yeun?” also explained the photo Dara uploaded with Steven Yeun in April, when the pair presumably filmed the skit together.
“It was very nice meeting you,” wrote Dara on her Instagram.
After uploading the photo and tweeting about it, Steven Yeun not only re-tweeted the photo, but also began following Dara on Twitter.
According to Venture Capital Post, the comedy skit is part of the website launch of Asia’s first celebrity studio, Be FUNNY Studios.
Reportedly, the studio is based in both Seoul and Los Angeles and will feature Hollywood and Asian celebrities in English and Asian languages.
A similar collaboration occurred last year with American actress Anna Kendrick and K-pop girl group f(x) in a comedy skit where Kendrick attempts to join the idol group.
This April, pop star Rita Ora also appeared in a Funny or Die video with 4minute’s HyunA.
On Wednesday, Dara celebrated her 30th birthday in the Philippines with close friends.
After performing with the other members of 2NE1 at the Alexander Wang event in Shanghai, the group is not expected to have further promotions before the end of the year.
