‘Roommate’ delayed by disasterSBS’s new reality show “Roommate,” which was supposed to debut yesterday, is postponing the airing of its first episode due to the Sewol ferry disaster, according to local reports yesterday.
The program has been receiving a lot of attention for its star-filled lineup and intriguing format of 11 celebrities living under the same roof. The inclusion of actors Lee Dong-wook, Hong Soo-hyun and Shin Sung-woo, who rarely appear on reality shows, has made expectations even bigger.
Yesterday, the broadcaster announced that “Roommate” would begin on April 27 instead.
“Roommate” is reportedly a reality program where 11 celebrities are divided into five teams who will then share a room for four evenings.
