Producing director (PD) Yoo Ho Jin is working on a new variety show!
On August 23, SPOTV News reported that PD Yoo Ho Jin is preparing his first production work since transferring to tvN with the goal of recording in September and premiering in October.
A source from tvN explained, “It’s a variety program with the theme of music. It’s not in a survival format.” About its cast reportedly including Jun Hyun Moo, Kim Joon Ho, Kim Jae Hwan, and John Park, the source replied, “No decision has been made. The title of the program is still undecided.”
Yoo Ho Jin first became known to the public as a rookie PD on “2 Days & 1 Night” in 2008. He left the show in 2010 and went on to direct programs including “Qualifications of Men” and “Win Win” (literal title). In 2013, he returned to “2 Days & 1 Night” as the main PD after the departure of PDs Lee Myung Han and Na Young Suk and earned the nickname “Crayfish PD” from Kim Joon Ho.
In November 2016, he transferred to Monster Union, a new content production company created by KBS to produce more Hallyu dramas and variety programs. There, he directed the drama “The Best Hit” and variety show “Where On Earth??“
In January of this year, the PD resigned from Monster Union before joining CJ ENM in March. In April, PD Yoo Ho Jin was spotted supporting the filming of tvN’s “Yoo Quiz on the Block.” The PD greeted viewers and commented on his transfer to tvN, saying, “I’m saying hello to you in a new environment.” After the episode aired, a source from tvN stated, “PD Yoo Ho Jin only supported filming. He will not be joining ‘Yoo Quiz on the Block.’ He’s currently preparing a new program.”
During his days as a PD on “2 Days & 1 Night,” Yoo Ho Jin revealed his dream, saying, “The reason why I became a variety show PD was because I wanted to direct a music show.”
