Tom Cruise To Jump In tvN’s ‘Taxi’


[By Ent Team] Tom Cruise rides a special kind of taxi.

On November 15, the tvN show ‘Taxi’ held a special episode around ‘action scenes’ and American top movie star Tom Cruise jumped in to introduce his new film, ‘Jack Reacher: Never Go Back’.

Tom Cruise is one of the few Hollywood actors who regularly visit South Korea. He stops by Seoul so often that they got him a nickname. With this appearance, the actor wants to show his Korean fans how much he loves them, and their country.

MC Oh Man Seok introduced the news in a kind of funny way, starting the show by announcing Cruise’s latest visit in Korea… just to announce that he was going to be the day’s guest: “He said he would only appear on ‘Taxi’.”

Before filming, Lee Young Ja wondered whether the American star would recognize him or not – they had met previously during Tom’s first visit in 1994 for ‘Interview with a vampire’ – but his anxiety was vain. Tom Cruise had a very vivid memory of the host, and they even shared stories.
