He was extraordinary from the opening of the first episode. He showed off his brilliant acting skills with Chungcheong dialect, which made viewers laugh unexpectedly. The actor even had a witty talk with Shin Dong-yeop, showing his perfect adaptation to the SNL.

In the show, the characters Im Si-wan used to play were re-enacted with SNL versions. Im Si-wan’s masterpieces, such as “Misaeng: Incomplete Life,” “Emergency Declaration,” and “Unlocked,” were transformed into comedy genres, making audiences and viewers laugh. The overwhelming laughter synergy was created when the role Byeong-tae of his signature Coupang Play series “Boyhood” was re-enacted in an R-rated way.

Im Si-wan, who generously poured out comedy instincts while covering his representative characters, said, “It was an honor for me, who was acting mainly in front of the camera, to be able to collaborate and act with others in front of the audience. Thanks to you, I was able to get a lot of energy and I did my best to give you a cool smile,” he said, expressing his overwhelming emotion.

Season 5 of “SNL Korea” will be available every Saturday at 8 p.m. (KST) on Coupang Play.
