SECHSKIES And PD Na Young Suk Team Up For A “Three Meals A Day” Spin-off
The 23-year-old idol group and the popular Producing Director (PD) is brewing something fun for viewers.
SECHSKIES has confirmed their appearance in a new program which is the follow-up to the Mapo Hipster show. On May 1, a teaser video was uploaded in PD Na Young Suk’s YouTube channel. It showed the staff and SECHSKIES exchanging ideas for the new series.
The upcoming program is the first to come out from the “Keeping promises made instead of a trip to the moon” project. Last year, PD Na found himself in a bit of a bind after encouraging fans to subscribe to his channel. He made a promise to send Eun Jiwon and Lee Soo Geun to a trip to the moon if he reached a million subscribers.
Things happened too quickly, and the goal has been achieved. This forced him to ask viewers to unsubscribe after realizing the moon trip is not feasible. In exchange, PD Na vowed to create more doable programs for Eun Jiwon and Lee Soo Geun to do.
Eun Jiwon, SECHSKIES’ leader, expressed his willingness to do the first program. But he said he will be doing it with the members. As a result, the four members will do a program like Three Meals A Day. They will travel and make food for themselves together.
According to Jiwon, SECHSKIES who celebrated their 23rd debut anniversary this year, has never stayed or lived together in a dorm. As the members have not done many things together as a group, they are set to live a remote location and take care of themselves.
In the video teaser released, PD Na asked, “With SECHSKIES, you want to create memories you will never forget until you die?.” The leader said, in jest, that he has to think about it as it seems Na PD is out for revenge.
During the meeting with SECHSKIES, the members have given out funny ideas. Lee Jae Jin wanted it to be difficult like “having a house with no roof” to which the group’s maknae, Jang Suwon retorted that he should do a show in a jungle instead. Kim Jae Duck said that he would appreciate it if they are “given materials to build a roof at least”.
Na Young Suk promised that SECHSKIES will have a roof over their heads. Listening to the conversation, Jiwon could not help commenting on his members. He said, “You may not realize it, but you guys are being weird right now.” This earned a good amount of laughs from the staff and his members.
PD Shin Hyo Jung of New Journey to the West shows, will also be in charge of the new series. She said, “We will create unforgettable memories for SECHSKIES.”
Meanwhile, SECHSKIES’ new series will follow the format of shows Three Meals in Iceland, Ramen Boys (Rakinam), and Mapo Hipster. It will have a five-minute airtime on TV and full episodes will be available through Channel 15 (Channel Shiboya).
The new program starring SECHSKIES will have its first broadcast on May 15.
