New Variety Show “How A Family Is Made” Confirms Star-Studded Cast Including Idols And Actors
Various stars are joining a new virtual family program!
On August 26, a live broadcast was held to introduce the new variety show “How a Family Is Made.” Cast members Son Ho Young, Super Junior’s Yesung, Yubin, BTOB’s Eunkwang, Lim Nayoung, THE BOYZ’s Hyunjae, Kang Hye Won, WayV’s Xiaojun, Hendery, and Yangyang, AB6IX’s Lee Dae Hwi, and Kim Kang Hoon were in attendance.
“How a Family Is Made” is a reality program that features the stars becoming virtual family members.
Son Ho Young began, “To tell you the basics, we are already one family. Several people can become one family, and there can also be a married couple.” Yesung continued, “We are still figuring it out ourselves, so we cannot tell you even if we know.” Son Ho Young added, “What I can tell you for sure is that I am not a father.”
Child actor Kim Kang Hoon, born in 2009 and the youngest of the cast members, commented, “I cannot say who I am a family with. I am closest with Dae Hwi. I could be the youngest of the family or even the oldest sibling.” He went on, “It feels like we have really become a family. Going to film feels like I’m going to hang out.”
Hyunjae shared, “I have an actual older sister, but I also thought it would be nice to have an older brother or younger siblings. I’m glad to have new family members through a great opportunity.” When asked about potential couples in the show, Hyunjae responded, “It seems like there could be, but I don’t really no, so I’ll say ‘no comment.'” BTOB’s Eunkwang then drew laughter as he commented, “It’s okay, honey.”
Yubin revealed, “We met without knowing at all who we will become family members with. It was nice because it felt new, and the show went a really different direction from what I expected. It was fun because I was able to discover new sides of myself.”
Yesung talked about his decision to join the program. “I anticipate that new sides of myself and warmth can be expressed when we become a family. International fans being able to watch our program also played a big part in my decision to join.”
Eunkwang said he initially went into the show with concern that it would feel awkward. “The staff made the filming atmosphere comfortable. It didn’t feel like we were filming but just felt like we came to hang out. We played lots of games also, and I even forgot there were cameras.”
Kang Hye Won also added, “I thought it could be uncomfortable having cameras filming constantly, but everyone made it comfortable, so filming went well.”
Lim Nayoung commented, “I received a lot of comfort from ‘How a Family Is Made,’ so I always look forward to filming, and it gives me more strength.”
On having three of the WayV members participate, Yangyang shared, “It’s the first time that the three of us are participating [in a program] together. Because our families are overseas, we cannot meet them often, so it’s really nice doing a program like this.”
Lee Dae Hwi produced the OST for “How a Family is Made.” He explained, “I participated as a music director. A song was naturally created while filming. I heard it will be revealed during the first episode.”
“How a Family is Made” is co-produced by MBC and Discovery Channel Korea. It is scheduled to premiere sometime later this year.
