In previous news, JTBC announced that Lee Hyori will be appearing in the new show “Hyori’s Home Stay” (literal translation). Through this program, viewers will be able to get a taste of how the star lives her daily life in Jeju Island. Ordinary people will be able to sign up to stay in the lodging area that will be run by the star herself.
In preparation, the staff has opened an official homepage so that people can sign up to appear on the program. Just after half a day, the staff has received over 5,000 applications and it has become the number one searched topic in search engines. The overflowing amount of attention has even surprised the staff.
The show’s chief producer Yoon Hyun Joon stated, “I didn’t expect this kind of popular reaction. I am thankful and overwhelmed at the same time. I will choose applicants after looking over their submissions carefully. We hope to bring people of various relationships for diversity.”
He further explained, “I think people are signing up to create good memories with Lee Hyori and her husband. But since there is a limit as to how many people can stay at the place, we are thinking of picking only a few teams. We are also debating whether or not to film at her actual house.”
Meanwhile, Lee Hyori’s new show is planned to air in June.
