“The Sixth Sense” PD Shares What To Look Forward To As The Cast Members Grow Closer
Jung Chul Min, the producing director (PD) of the new tvN variety show “The Sixth Sense,” shared what viewers can look forward to as the show goes on.
“The Sixth Sense” is a show in which five cast members and one guest go to unusual places and meet unusual people and have to use their “sixth sense” to guess which is real and which are fake. It stars Yoo Jae Suk, Jun So Min, Jessi, Lovelyz’s Mijoo, and Oh Na Ra.
On September 3, the show premiered to an average nationwide viewership rating of 3.2 percent. PD Jung Chul Min said, “I’m still getting used to it. People around me are telling me, ‘It’s a good start,’ so I’m feeling secure. Yoo Jae Suk decided to appear on the show because of the setup and the members, but since he was also helping me out, I was determined to work hard and not let him down. I haven’t spoken with him after the viewership ratings came out, but I will discuss with him what we can do to take things further.”
One of the charms of the first episode was seeing the cast come together. Jung Chul Min said, “Yoo Jae Suk has a hard time. But he also has a lot of fun on set. It’s fun to watch. Starting from episode two, the female cast members’ chemistry improves day by day. There’s a lot of fun to be had in watching how Yoo Jae Suk is stuck in the middle, trying to adapt. He is scared of what will happen once the female cast members are all friends.”
Jung Chul Min worked with Yoo Jae Suk and Jun So Min on SBS’s “Running Man” in the past. He said, “I worked with the same writers in ‘Village Survival, the Eight.’ The VJs are people that Yoo Jae Suk has worked with for a long time. There are differences in the system, but I can’t say that it’s that much different on tvN than in other places. Since I was the one who transferred recently and am still adapting, he’s the one who is being careful and respectful of me.”
The PD also talked about the relationship between Jessi and Yoo Jae Suk. “The programs that I make depend a lot on the chemistry of the cast members, so it’s important to look at their personalities,” he said. “I met Jessi through Yoo Jae Suk’s recommendation, but unlike her public image, she’s a very kind and sweet person. She and Yoo Jae Suk value each other very much. That’s why they’re able to argue on the show without being uncomfortable with each other.”
