  • Gag Concert`s Ahn Sang-tae Riding High on His Popularity
  • [2004-12-17]
  • "Ready? Now you`re going to fall into my charm!" That is the phrase that comedian Ahn Sang-tae, who plays the role of Ahn Eo-beong, the host of a recently popular `Absentminded Home Shopping` corner in KBS TV2`s Gag Concert, addresses to the female audience. This unsophisticated and unattractive character, who insists that women cannot resist his charm, has been riding high on his popularity these days. Always wearing a loudly-colored suit that looks ugly on him and having a 2-to-8 hair-part, Ahn Eo-beong impersonates a country gentleman that one could meet in a coffee-house in the countryside back in the 1970s.

    Ahn Sang-tae says he uses the Chungcheong Province dialect when playing Ahn Eo-beong, which he learned from his late grandfather. Before Ahn was cast as KBS comedian, he accumulated his comic skills for over four years playing in small theaters and street performances. Ahn even studied for his KBS exam while performing in small theaters.

    Ahn says he wants to learn the ad-lip skills of Shin Dong-yup and the ability to entertain people by belittling himself as Yoo Jae-seok does. He also wants to learn a lot from his colleague Yoo Se-yun, who has a good diction, and Kim Dae-beom, who is an ardent comedian.
