By Kwon Ji-youn

Comedian Seo Kyung-seok will act as commentator for the Bundesliga football league's Bayer Leverkusen vs. Wolfsburg match on Saturday, cable channel The M announced Wednesday.

"I'm a fan of both Son Heung-min and Koo Ja-cheol," Seo said. "I'm honored to have been given the chance to comment for this ‘Korean derby.' I feel the pressure, since it's my first time, but I'll try my best to make it easy to understand and fun." Son plays for Bayer Leverkusen, while Koo plays for Wolfsburg.

Seo's love for the sport is a well known fact. He is captain of a celebrity soccer team, and participates in every charity soccer match that the Hong Myung-bo Scholarship Foundation hosts.
