tvN’s love reality program, “The Romantic” is back and will feature some of the hottest idols of 2012. Previously, “The Romantic” featured ordinary men and women as they travel to an unfamiliar place for 9 nights and 10 days to get to know each other and find love. But instead of ordinary men and woman, the show will feature idol stars with a new title, “The Romantic & Idol.”
“The Romantic & Idol” will be produced by the “Answer Me 1997” production team and will feature eight idols. These eight idols will travel to Jeju Island and go on dates and create budding love lines with each other.

Escaping from their busy schedules, these idols will be traveling to the romantic island of Jeju. The show will portray their real, everyday lives as they take part in this romantic vacation. The idol stars will get to go on movie-like dates and the show is planning on displaying each idol’s feelings as well as the dilemmas toward one another.
The main PD stated, “Through ‘The Romantic & Idol,’ viewers will be able to experience that fluttering excitement of dating and first love.”
4minute’s Nam Ji Hyun has already updated her fans with a photo of herself and the beautiful ocean of Jeju Island.
“The Romantic & Idol” will be airing on November 11.
