Choi Kang-hee, there was a reason for stopping acting.
Choi Kang-hee honestly revealed the reason why she quit acting three years ago and announced her return to her full-time job as an actor.

MBC's entertainment show 'Radio Star', which aired on the 12th, featured a special episode titled 'Which planet are you from?' starring Choi Kang-hee, Lee Sang-yeop, Choi Hyun-woo, Orbit, and Choi Y-na. 'Radio Star', which aired on this day, ranked first in its time slot with a viewership rating of 3.9% based on households in the metropolitan area (hereinafter the same).

The best minute was the scene where science communicator Orbit scientifically analyzed Choi Kang-hee's unique charm through 'superstring theory'. He surprised everyone by saying that 4th dimension is ordinary and that Choi Kang-hee's charm should be called 11th dimension. As a result, the viewership rating soared to a peak of 4.9%.

Choi Kang-hee, who recently garnered attention by revealing her unique daily life that is rarely seen in actresses on MBC's entertainment show 'Point of Omniscient Interfere', appeared on 'Las' for the first time since her debut. As a well-established celebrity, Choi Kang-hee attracted attention as he knew the 'Las' MCs' rookie days and peak performances.

Choi Kang-hee honestly revealed why she stopped acting three years ago and why she decided to stand alone without a manager. He said, “I have no real money, no house, no temple,” and worked part-time as a housekeeper and dishwasher to earn money, not because of social experience. Also, he was wary of getting used to the help of his manager and decided to become independent, honestly expressing his feelings by saying, "I wanted to become a person of a normal age." He also confessed his feelings at the time, saying that he had become numb to his emotions due to his long acting career, and that he felt skeptical about acting, as the range of roles he could choose was becoming increasingly narrow.

Meanwhile, he revealed the behind-the-scenes story, saying that he returned as a radio DJ for 'Choi Kang-hee's Movie Music' after 12 years because of actress Kim Hye-ja's advice. Choi Kang-hee also said that while taking a break from acting, she realized, “I think I’m the best at acting.” She said, “I’m currently reviewing the script. He received applause for his announcement of his return as an actor, saying, “I want to do all the roles that I can play best, no matter how big or small, whether I am old or young.”

A former beauty pageant, she surprised people by revealing the story of how she debuted as the main character in a drama with a fate similar to that of Cinderella, the secret story of filming the movie 'Girls' High School Ghost Story' that made her stand tall as the 'godmother of the K-ghost world', and fan service worthy of the original '4D actor'. I was hugged. Everyone was amazed by the timeless school uniform photo of Choi Kang-hee, who played the role of a high school student in movies even in his 30s. Even in her first appearance on 'Las', Choi Kang-hee overwhelmed the audience with her frank speech without any tension and clear self-objectification.

The new groom, Lee Sang-yeop, who got married last March, made people laugh by revealing that he had folded toilet paper like hotel paper on the morning of the recording of 'Las' because he was conscious of being called 'a lover who would make even Choi Soo-jong cry.' After getting married, he was reborn as a 'housekeeper' by cleaning, doing laundry, and cooking. Everyone was amazed at Lee Sang-yeop's high-level cooking skills, as he even hosted chef events for his wife and her friends.

Lee Sang-yeop revealed an anecdote that became controversial(?) after he posted a photo of himself looking like BTS' Jin on social media. The 'Las' MCs who checked the post suspected that Lee Sang-yeop posted the 'hehe' message with the photo with his own awareness. It made me laugh. In addition, he added to the interest by mentioning the story of being spoiled for his marriage three years ago and the fact that Heo Young-man, a 'gourmet', saw 'the award of becoming a father next year'.

Magician Choi Hyun-woo, who appeared in 'Las' for the first time in six years, expressed concern about solving a magic trick in front of Kim Gura, who is more nervous than North Korea's Kim Jong-un, and a scientist who is more uncomfortable than Kim Gura, and asked Kim Gura, "Please (only respond) like Kang Ho-dong." He ordered. He was the first Korean to win the '2024 Magician of the Year Award' at the close-up magic convention '4F', and on this day, he prepared 'Life Magic' for 'Las', which immediately captivated not only the skeptical Kim Gu-ra but also the entire studio.

Choi Hyun-woo stimulated interest by revealing the story of how he posted an apology video on the official Lotto website after guessing the winning lottery number using magic, and the story of receiving a magic lesson offer from a pseudo-religionist who offered a lesson fee of 100 million won per session, but refusing it.

Orbit, a science communicator who entered 'LAS' for the first time, showed his presence by showing off his chatting instinct even before he introduced himself. He added scientific interpretation to the stories of the MCs and guests, and the effect of Kim Gura's harsh words and Choi Kang-hee's scientific analysis of the 11th dimension, not the 4th dimension, were fascinating. Orbit said that he did a 'live broadcast' with Joo Woo-jae for a whopping 11 hours and 40 minutes, revealing the desire of a 'science-mad person' to convey the fun of science.

Orbit boasted that he was the king of networking in the entertainment industry, and in particular, while revealing his close relationship with Lim Young-woong, he surprised people by recalling that when they first met in LA, Lim Young-woong immediately recognized who he was just by looking at his back. In addition, although Lim Young-woong may feel uncomfortable when his acquaintances mention him on entertainment shows, he said, “There are benefits to going on entertainment shows and it is good,” and he said that he showed a ‘great people mentality’, which aroused admiration.

Lastly, Choi Yena, a former member of the third-generation girl group IZ*ONE, appeared on 'Las' for the first time and expressed her gratitude to the production team for inviting her now. In the process of mentioning the nickname that came about because of his unique stage costume, he received the nickname 'female KCM' from Kim Gura, which made people laugh. Yena Choi mentioned the challenge culture that did not exist when she was active as IZ*ONE and made everyone burst into laughter by doing the 'Maratanghulu' challenge with Kim Gura.

He revealed an anecdote about experiencing Jang Won-young's 'Wonyoung-like thinking', which was consistent with his time in IZone, and said that he was able to see the positive side thanks to Jang Won-young at the time. On the other hand, he confessed that he suffered a skiing accident when he was young, which left him paralyzed from the waist down, but that he overcame it thanks to his mother's strong will. He also touched people's hearts by revealing the miraculous story of how he succeeded as a singer after going through difficult times at home and gifted a house to his parents.
