The Walking Dead” actor Steven Yeun and K-Pop band 2NE1 member Sandara “Dara” Park played boyfriends and girlfriends in the “Funny Or Die” web series titled “What’s Eating Steven Yeun?” The Hollywood and K-Pop collaboration features a story of a celebrity couple played by the two, who were both born of South Korean parents.

In the web series, Yeun’s character has to leave Dara’s character in California, United States because he wants to establish his career in South Korea and he has to make it in his “parents’ home country.” In South Korea, he meets with a character played by South Korean actor Park Hyuk Kwon.

Kwon’s character uses Yeun’s character to create the ultimate star in the Korean version of food porn called mokbang. The latter makes his trip back down not long after his rise to the top.

The three-episode “Funny Or Die” web series features 2NE1’s hit songs including “Gotta Be You” and “Fire.” The skit is part of the website launch of Be FUNNY Studios, the first celebrity studio of Asia.
