‘Three Meals’ opener a hitThe second season of the popular reality TV show “Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village” kicked off on Friday, and the first episode earned a 13.9 percent viewership, the highest among all shows that aired in the same time slot across cable and the three major broadcasters, KBS, MBC and SBS.
The reality TV show set in a remote fishing village first aired in January. Although it is a spinoff of the original series “Three Meals a Day: Jeongseon,” the spinoff featuring actors Cha Seung-won and Yoo Hae-jin is more popular than the original. In the reality show, the two actors struggle to feed themselves.
The reality TV show is a brainchild of star producer Na Young-seok, who created hit reality TV shows, including “Grandpas over Flowers,” in which actors in their 70s and 80s go backpacking overseas.
Park Hyung-sik, a member of the K-pop boy band ZE:A, joined the first episode as a guest.
