AceShowbiz - It seems like Super Junior will be going wild for November 11 episode of South Korea's "Saturday Night Live". The K-Pop group, who recently released their 8th studio album "Play", is set to host in the late-night show's season 9 and transforms into "3-minute boyfriends."
"The hosts Super Junior's acting skills are excellent. They caught our eyes with their unending gags and witty comments from the idea meeting, throughout filming," says the show's staff in a statement. "We are seeing more mature content than expected thanks to their veteran acting, so we are debating if it will be safe for broadcast. Please anticipate the episode."
"3-Minute Boyfriends", one of sketches for "SNL Digital Short", will see cast member Lee Se Young seeking to dispel the loneliness in her heart on couple holidays through a box containing several packs of a different set of "boyfriends." Super Junior member Heechul will play an "innocent boyfriend," while Donghae is set to be an "emotional boyfriend."
