Arm yourself with a selfie stick, and get ready for "Seoul Runner."

Several K-pop stars and Hollywood actor Ki Hong Lee appeared in the short film, "Seoul Runner," a parody of the film, "Maze Runner." M.I.B's Kangnam and soloist NS Yoon-G starred alongside Lee in short, with cameos made by 2PM's Nichkhun and Taecyeon as Lee's character from "Maze Runner" tries to escape Seoul.

The short also parodied Korean variety shows, such as "Running Man" and "Superman Returns," as Lee took on his "Maze Runner" role and tried to escape from his enemies.

"Seoul Runner" was produced by 20th Century Fox and Be FUNNY Studios as part of the promotions for "Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials," the sequel to the 2014 film, "Maze Runner."

"Fresh from WCKD's grasp, Minho (Ki Hong Lee) wakes up in Seoul, Korea with bizarre, but seemingly harmless company," Seoul Runner's official description says. "Korean pop stars Kangnam, NS Yoon-G, with special cameos by 2PM's Nichkhun and Taecyeon are all helpful in setting up an effective disguise and plan for Minho to make a break for it-or is it?"

"Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" topped Korean box offices, coming in second only to South Korean Oscar nominated film, "The Throne." The first film, "Maze Runner," also broke records in South Korea upon its release.

The "Maze Runner" series gained much attention in South Korea due to Korean-American actor Ki Hong Lee's starring role in the films. Ki and other actors from the film promoted the sequel in South Korea prior to its release.
