Being a Cast Member of MBC’s I Live Alone
Henry first made his appearance on MBC’s I Live Alone in episode 190. He covered a popular song “Uptown Funk” and it became a hit as well as the second most viewed video on Naver TV. Soon, he was recruited to become a regular member.
He then appeared in episode 192, 196, 203, 214-215, 244, 253-254, 257, 266-267, 271, 276-277, 286-287, and so on. Henry seems to have a good relationship with the cast. In one episode of Korean Thanksgiving day (Chuseok Day), he gifted the cast a box of nuts worth 129,000 KRW (about $109).
He also wrote personally to the cast. To Park Na-rae, he wrote, “Mom! ^^ I really want to see you!! Don’t you want to see me too?? Happy Chuseok!♡♡ – Henry.” Meanwhile, to Han Hye-jin, “Hyejin noona! Happy Chuseok! ♡Henry.”
The cast then called him to thank him.
In episode 267, Henry continued showing his home town in Toronto including his family house. The cast members were surprised at how big his house is.
In the previous episode, he surprised his father by appearing in his office suddenly and both spent quality time together. This time, they went home and let the viewers see the inside of the house. The cast teased him about his family being rich but he denied and said that it’s just because their house is full of instruments.
Henry said that the inside of his room is just like the way it was when he was younger. He also showed his childhood pictures.
Henry celebrated Thanksgiving day with his father and friends as well as his birthday. His father surprisingly teared up as he said that it’s the first time in seventeen years or more since he celebrated Henry’s birthday with him and he’s really happy about it. In the studio, Henry himself told the cast that he was surprised to see his father cry because he thought his father was someone who never cried.
Many think Henry is funny and has a good sense of humor so he gets along with the other cast members. Some even say that the rating of the show goes up when he appears. What do you think?
Rumor with Kathryn Prescott
On MBC’s I Live Alone, Henry spent quite some time with Kathryn Prescott in episode 304-305. It drew the attention of the other cast members as they really looked like a couple who were on a date. Henry insisted that they were not but the panelist kept teasing him about it. When Kathryn saw Henry, she immediately made quick steps and hugged him tightly. In the studio, he shared that Kathryn had been in Korea for five days but he was abroad. When he said he wanted to see her, he suddenly stopped and took back his words as he knew it could lead to something bad. He clarified that he wanted to see her as a friend. Watch the clip below!
In another clip, Kathryn said that she was in Korea alone without any friends for 10 days. He then teased her by asking why she was there in Korea. When she said she wanted to see Korea, Henry teasingly asked for more, “And…?” Kathryn caught it and said smilingly, “And to see Henry.” Even though they might be just playing around, it still seems so cute for the audience.
Later, Henry also showed his gentleman side by carrying Kathryn’s bag and covering her from the sunlight.
Next, he taught her how to make Korean food bibimbap. When she ate Henry’s bibimbap, she liked it and said it was delicious. She even used Korean phrases that Henry had taught her before.
However, as sweet as it is, when asked whether Kathryn has a boyfriend, she said yes. After hearing that, Henry cutely showed a certain reaction as if he was surprised. Even though he tried to explain that it was a normal reaction, the other cast members just couldn’t buy it!
Let’s take a look at their chemistry and funny moments in a short clip of their interview for their movie promotion!
Even though Kathryn already has a boyfriend, we can’t deny that they have a good friendship and we hope to see more of their interactions in the future.
