KBS2TV’s variety show “Our Neighborhood Arts and Physical Education” will be visiting the 2014 Winter Olympics.
The possibility was brought up in November, when it was revealed that the program is planning a trip to the grand sports event. On January 3, a representative of KBS’ variety show branch confirmed to Star News that the cast members will indeed attend the upcoming Sochi Olympics.
The Olympics will be held starting from February 7, and the cast will match their departure according to the event schedule. They will stay in Sochi for around a week.
In May last year, the members shared their wish to attend the Sochi Olympics after winning a bowling match. Not until their recent win in December did the matter become relevant again, and after discussing it further with the producers, the possibility of them attending got even higher. It was revealed that the producers have prepared for this special trip since last year.
The cast members will participate in the sports event by cheering on the sportsmen in a meaningful way that fits the program.
In related news, the show recently received the Best Team Work Award at the 2013 KBS Entertainment Awards.
