On September 8th, Lee Hongki tweeted a teaser for his September 10th Chuseok special, “Noriko Goes to Seoul“.
The plot revolves around a Japanese couple who’ve been married for 17 years. Housewife Noriko is in love with Hallyu singer Kim Hyun Je, and her cold husband, Hiroshi, and daughter Miyuki (who just hit puberty) can’t understand her. While at the hospital one day, Noriko receives the news that she has lung cancer, which leads to Miyuki telling her that she’s going to give up track and field.
Noriko hears that Kim Hyun Je will be a judge at an audition, so in order to give her daughter courage, she goes to Korea to try out for the audition. Hongki plays Kim Minha, who helps Noriko in Korea. Hongki jokingly tells Noriko to call him “My Master“, since she doesn’t know what it means, but she ends up calling him that over and over again.
