While PD Na Young Seok is preparing for the next season of “Youn’s Kitchen,” there might be a possibility that we won’t see the whole original team.
According to a report by Star News on Nov 3rd, tvN’s production team, led by producer Na Young Seok, is currently coordinating schedules with existing members of “Youn’s Kitchen,” including actors Youn Yuh Jung, Lee Seo Jin, Jung Yoo Mi, and Park Seo Joon. The cast shares such a strong relationship with producer Na Young Seok that they promise to join the program if there are no special circumstances. Accordingly, it is reported that the cast’s schedule is shared with the production team in advance and the schedule is adjusted so that there is no disruption.
However, some predict that some cast members may not be able to join “Youn’s Kitchen” if their schedules are inevitably mixed. The production team has already selected possible locations with the goal of filming in early December and has begun preparing for production. However, some cast members reportedly failed to confirm their final appearance due to the overlapping schedules with their other filming.
Earlier, a tvN insider said, “It is true that we are preparing for an entertainment show that runs a restaurant abroad,” regarding the new season of “Youn’s Kitchen” on Oct 27th. However, they avoided an immediate answer, saying, “Nothing has been confirmed about whether the title of the program will be ‘Youn’s Kitchen.’ This is interpreted as the team leaving room for a possible new title if the existing cast members cannot join. In other words, the possibility of them being unable to appear as a whole team is still there. An insider told Star News, “The team seems to have been selected to some extent, but the production staff seems to be silent because the exact team have not been formed yet,” and “It will take a while for any official position to be announced.” Attention is paying to whether “Youn’s Kitchen” will return with the original team or return to viewers with a new combination.
Meanwhile, “Youn’s Kitchen” is a program that shows stars setting up and running small Korean restaurants overseas, and is considered PD Na Young Seok’s representative entertainment show.
