If Conan O’Brien ever gets tired of the whole late night scene, he might have a future as a Korean soap opera star.
The Brookline born comedian recently traveled to Seoul, South Korea for an upcoming episode of Conan. In between buying a pet octopus and hanging out with The Walking Dead‘s Steven Yeun at the Demilitarized Zone, O’Brien found the time to make a cameo on the romantic drama One More Happy Ending.
As expected, the late night host’s appearance was pretty wacky. O’Brien shows up as a goldfish during a trippy scene with a distraught matchmaking consultant named Han Mi-mo, played by actress and K-pop star Jang Na-ra.
O’Brien pops up again later in the episode as a client who tries to seduce his consultant while dispensing love advice in Korean and English.
“I have one thing to tell you sincerely,” O’Brien says. “Love overcomes everything.”
