These numbers were huge, considering that “Grandpas over Flowers” aired on a cable station.
The second episode featured the four veteran actors exploring Spain by themselves as the baggage boy, actor Lee Seo Jin, was expected to be absent for the first few days. Thus, the four veteran actors followed a well prepared tour guide to explore the architectural masterpieces of Spanish Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi. As the grandpas visited the garden Park Güell to the cathedral La Sagrada Familia, the four actors were captured expressing their amazement and wonder at the intricate and beautiful designs. However, the day tour turned for the worst when the grandpas became lost on their way back to their dorms, causing a five minute walk to become an hour long search; luckily, the actors were finally able to find their rooms.
