Actor Kim Soo-hyun failed in his bid to become a professional bowler over the weekend. Singer Lee Hong-ki of the pop group FT Island also took part in the annual pro-bowing tryouts, but fared no better.
Kim and Lee competed in the second round of the tryouts but neither made it to the next round.
Needing an average of at least 200 points to advance, Kim fell short with 192.3, while Lee averaged 177.2. In the first round, both men surpassed the minimum required average with 214.6 and 191 points respectively.
The Korea Professional Bowling Association considered granting special pro qualifications to the two celebrities, but both declined the offer.
