Lee Dong Wook, Kim Go Eun, Onew, And More Confirmed For New Variety Show
The production crew behind JTBC’s “Begin Again” will be launching a new variety show titled “The Sea I Desire” (literal translation).
“The Sea I Desire” is a healing program where celebrities will present their own music and homemade dishes at a live bar next to the mysterious and beautiful sea. The variety show revolves around three key words: sea, bar, and wish. The guests who visit will be able to get out of their daily lives and spend a special day with the cool ocean, music, and delicious food.
Yoon Jong Shin, Lee Ji Ah, Lee Dong Wook, SHINee’s Onew, Kim Go Eun, and AKMU’s Lee Suhyun have been confirmed to be part of the cast. Not only will they cook and sing for the guests, but they will also directly participate in the interior and management.
Lee Ji Ah, who has excellent cooking skills, will show her passion for cooking as the head chef, and she will develop new dishes for the menu. Lee Dong Wook will be the head bartender, and he will participate in many activities, like diving and cooking. With a scuba diving license and a deep interest for the marine ecosystem, Kim Go Eun will take the role of an ocean guard. Yoon Jong Shin will express his stories through music, and Onew will be in charge of the bakery as well as play music for the guests. Last but not least, Lee Suhyun will gift various songs with her unique and beautiful voice.
In addition, there will be special celebrity guests who will present diverse music to the people at the bar. Singer-songwriter MeloMance’s Jung Dong Hwan and artist Zai.Ro will also perform on the show.
“The Sea I Desire” will be directed by producing director (PD) Song Gwang Jong, who produced “Begin Again,” and it will premiere on June 29 at 9 p.m. KST.
