On September 5, JTBC’s new cross-platform variety show, “Learning the Hard Way” (working title) dropped its first teaser and trailer!
The show is a collaboration between the mobile video app Oksusu and JTBC’s digital channel Studio Lulu Lala. It aims to be a travel variety program where celebrities travel to foreign countries and pay for their own expenses by selling items in local markets.
The five cast members, g.o.d’s Park Joon Hyung, Soyou, Junggigo, Girl’s Day’s Sojin, and NU’EST’s Ren, recently headed to Belgium for their first filming and spent a week there touring the local night markets and flea markets.
Like the title, the trailer shows the cast “learning the hard way” as they navigate the unfamiliar world of Belgium, even using their musical talents to busk. Junggigo expresses homesickness at one point, while Ren tries to cheer everyone up with his energetic dancing and cute antics. Sojin proves to be the most fearless, revealing that she worked lots of part-time jobs during her school days, while Soyou acted cute to sell her items.
The show will air through Oksusu on September 14 at 10 a.m. KST and air on JTBC2 the same day at 9:30 p.m. KST. It will air on the main JTBC channel on September 23 at 12:20 a.m. KST.
