Program[edit] Where Is Mr.Kim is South Korea's first ever infiltration mystery variety show where unknown actors/actresses showcase themselves with their acting skills. In each episode, the instigator, which is usually an experienced, more known actor/actress, will bring in a few unknown actors/actresses that are juniors to the instigator. The instigator will set up a situated theme and these unknown actors/actresses will blend in to it with other people who are genuinely based on it. The cast of star investigators will together experience the theme with the group and identify who are the actors/actresses among the group. If the cast cannot find all the unknown actors/actresses, the instigator wins the game. In Season 2, the instigator will no longer be of an experienced, more known actor/actress. Cast[edit]
