Who were the top variety show idol stars of 2010?
<Flower boy + 2nd generation Kim Gura, B2ST’s Ki Kwang>
Another variety show rookie that comes to mind is Lee Ki Kwang of B2ST. Ki Kwang first showed his potential comedic talents through MBC’s daily sitcom ‘Highkick through the Roof’, but his popularity only began to soar after he was chosen as a fixed member of popular variety show, ‘Hot Brothers’. It was through this show where Ki Kwang was able to break out of his typical, flower boy idol image and be accepted as the second generation Kim Gura – a comedian who is particularly well-known for his witty wordplay. Ki Kwang’s seductive “American Dance” on the show is considered to be one of Ki Kwang’s highlights in becoming one of this year’s top variety show idols.
Following his success on ‘Hot Brothers’ came a new opportunity for Ki Kwang to cast for KBS’s weekly talk show, ‘Seung Seung Jang Gu’. Learning under veteran gagmen Kim Gura, Tak Jae Hoon, andPark Myung Soo, Ki Kwang has improved vastly in his eloquence and wit – two key ingredients which are vital for a successful variety talk show
