New reality show 'Youn’s Stay' to begin airing from Jan. 8 on tvN
Star producer Na Young-seok’s new reality show “Youn’s Stay” will begin airing from Jan. 8 on tvN, the cable channel announced Thursday.
“Youn’s Stay” was rebranded from the producer’s former hit seasons of “Youn’s Kitchen,” where cast members traveled overseas to run a pop-up restaurant for a few days. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this season will be filmed at a hanok (traditional Korean house) guesthouse in South Jeolla where foreigners who have lived in Korea for less than a year come and stay.
Former cast members actors Yoon Yuh-jung, Lee Seo-jin, Jung Yu-mi and Park Seo-jun will take part again along with a new addition to the third season, actor Choi Woo-shik.
“We wanted to offer foreigners who were supposed to experience a variety of Korean culture a special experience of staying in a hanok overnight,” the producer said in a statement, explaining the show’s initiative. “We hope they can get to properly feel the local mood [through this show].”
The show’s first episode starts at 9:10 p.m. on Jan. 8.
