Director of “Roommate 2”: “New Members Are Completely Unpredictable”
With the premiere of “Roommate 2” only a few days away, Park Sang Hyuk PD has revealed what the viewers can expect to see in the much-awaited first episode.
The new cast entered the shared house on September 13, and have since been adjusting to their life as a part of the vibrant community. With the original members Lee Dong Wook, Jo Se Ho, Seo Kang Joon, Park Min Woo, and After School‘s Nana joined by g.o.d‘s Park Joon Hyung, Girls’ Generation‘s Sunny, Otani Ryohei, Kara‘s Heo Youngji, Bae Jong Ok, Lee Gook Joo, and GOT7‘s Jackson, the anticipation is only growing for the fresh second season.
The PD revealed during an interview with news outlet OSEN, “We are focusing all of our energy into keeping an eye on these people. Unlike with the previous members, we have faced a large number of unexpected situations. For instance, one member started craving potato stew at 5 a.m. and simply left the house,” and laughed, “We have a hard time running after everyone.”
“I am not exaggerating when I say that Park Joon Hyung and Lee Gook Joo are hilarious around the clock. Simply watching them do ordinary daily chores, such as eating and sleeping, is entertaining. They snore loudly, eat a lot, and even dance at random times. Fun moments keep taking place. Even for me as the producer, it is surprising,” the PD explained, and added that Bae Jong Ok is expected to catch the viewers’ eye with her youthful and sweet charms, whereas Jackson is a natural entertainer.
“Due to such factors, the original members were completely dumbfounded at first. Compared to season one, there are certainly more impulsive members, and unexpected events take place as a result. It feels like aliens have entered a peaceful house. Something new constantly happens. Both old and new members are now trying to adjust to the atmosphere,” the PD concluded, raising the expectations for the new season.
The second season of “Roommate” will premiere on September 21.
