Goodbye “Unstoppable Highkick!”Posted: July 15, 2007
The hit sit-com series Unstoppable Highkick! ended on July 13th, after 167 episodes or 8 months. During that time, it provided a lot of laughs to its fans and also produced many stars, including my current favorite pretty boy Jung Il-Woo, Suh Min Jung, Kim Bum and Lee Soon Jae. Jung Il-woo rose from nothing to “wan-so-nam,” Suh Min Jung’s antis became her fans and Kim Bum just became lovable even after displaying too many gay tendencies during the show. And of course, who can forget the grandpa Lee Soon Jae! His nickname was the funniest being Ya Dong Sun Dae (야동순재) – short for x-rated video Soon Jae.
In addition, Highkick was a good depiction of modern Korean family dynamics, although it’s quite rare to have three generations living under the same roof in Korea. I highly recommend this sit-com to anybody who’s looking for a quick laugh or learning more about Korean family relationships. Currently, there are talks of re-making this into a movie, but we’ll let you know if anything is confirmed. Goodbye Highkick!
