‘Grandpas’ new season set in Taiwan


Veteran actors from cable channel tvN’s entertainment show “Grandpas Over Flowers” will travel to Taiwan to film the show’s second season. The first season was filmed in France.

Lee Sun-jae, popular for his role in the JTBC drama “Childless Comfort” and the MBC sitcom “Unstoppable High Kick,” Shin Gu of the MBC drama “Feast of the Gods,” Baek Il-sub of the film “Scout” and Park Geun-hyung of the film “Boomerang Family” will participate in the second season.

Considering the actors are in their 70s or older, the production staff chose a closer location for filming.

However, actor Lee Seo-jin of the MBC drama “Gyebaek,” who joined the show in France as a helper to the veteran actors, might not stay on the show, said a production staff member, according to local media reports.

The weekly show garnered popularity among local audiences, marking a 4.4 percent viewership rate with its second episode on Friday last week, according to Nielsen Korea, which is considered remarkable as many shows on cable channels rarely record viewership rates over 1 percent. The first season began on July 5.
