SEOUL, Aug. 20 (Yonhap) -- South Korean K-pop group Girls' Generation will play a cameo role in "Better Late Than Never," an upcoming travel reality show on American TV channel NBC, its management agency said Thursday.

The show, whose production began this month, will be headlined by five comedy big shots -- Jeff Dye, Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw and George Foreman. It is based on the South Korean hit reality series "Grandpas Over Flowers, in which prominent has-beens, including actor Lee Soon-jae, embark on adventures in foreign countries. Its American doppelganger is expected to make stops in several Asian cities, including Seoul, according to its producers.

The eight-member girl group will film its part at the SMTOWN@coexartium in southern Seoul this weekend, S.M. Entertainment said.

The group earlier made history by becoming the first South Korean singers to appear on the esteemed "The Late Show with David Letterman" in 2012.

They are currently promoting their fifth album, "Lion Heart," which was released Tuesday.
