“Youn’s Kitchen” Transforms With New Focus For Upcoming Season
“Youn’s Kitchen” is returning as “Youn’s Stay” (literal title)!
On December 22, a source from tvN confirmed that the network is launching “Youn’s Stay,” which is directed by Na Young Suk and Kim Se Hee. It will be a reality program set in a hanok (traditional Korean home) in South Jeolla Province.
The main cast of “Youn’s Kitchen” returns for this new spin on the format, with Youn Yuh Jung, Lee Seo Jin, Jung Yu Mi, and Park Seo Joon taking part. As previously confirmed, they’re joined by Choi Woo Shik, who starred alongside Jung Yu Mi this year in Na Young Suk’s reality show “Summer Vacation.” The cast of “Youn’s Stay” recently wrapped up filming in the county of Gurye.
The first season of “Youn’s Kitchen” featured the stars opening a restaurant on an island in Bali, Indonesia, and in the second season they did so on the Spanish island of Tenerife. Due to COVID-19, the show decided to film in Korea this year.
tvN stated, “There is not much travel happening between countries due to COVID-19, but there are foreigners who have come to Korea during the COVID-19 period after being appointed by their business or for their studies, and they are not able to enjoy the atmosphere of Korea. We wanted to create an opportunity for them to experience Korea’s charms and the beauty of hanok while doing a homestay in a hanok.”
“Youn’s Stay” is slated for a January premiere.
