The high profile figure skating SBS variety show Kiss and Cry is scheduled to go on air 22 May 2011.
SBS has been revealing a slew of teasers (here and here) to their very own version of Dancing on Ice. The upcoming figure skating variety show will feature 10 Korean celebrity guests, including TVXQ’s Yunho, IU, Son Dambi, f(x)’s Krystal and speed skating gold medalist Lee Kyu Hyuk. They will be figure-skating to save themselves from elimination.
These stars will each be teamed up with a professional figure skater to compete with one another for the chance to participate in Kim Yuna’s Ice Show this August. SBS has been placing high hopes for the show and even invested in building their own ice-skating rink at the Tan Hyun Studio in Ilsan, exclusively for the filming of Kiss & Cry.
Despite it being a rather dangerous sport for non-professionals, these stars are not holding back and will be going all out to win this competition. Rumour has it that TVXQ’s YunHo will even be skating to the beat of Michael Jackson’s Beat It. Hence, fans of these stars as well as those of figure skating are now curious and anxious to see what these stars will have to offer on ice. Are you?
