Actress Yoon Yeo Jung complimented Lee Seo Jin for the way he treated her and Shin Goo on “Youn’s Kitchen.”

During a recent interview, Yoon Yeo Jung revealed that Lee Seo Jin’s acts of kindness were all genuine. “I was really surprised by the way Lee Seo Jin looked after us. He worked so hard while filming ‘Youn’s Kitchen,’ shopping for groceries and always preparing the meat. He got the restaurant ready [early in the morning] just so I could get out of bed later,” she shared.

The actress also described what their daily life was like while filming the show. “After closing down the restaurant for the day, we returned home in the evening all tired. Instead of resting, however, Lee Seo Jin always tried to prepare dinner for us. He has such a warm heart. Getting to share a meal with him, Shin Goo, and Jung Yoo Mi was really a time of healing,” she expressed.

She further explained how Lee Seo Jin treated Shin Goo. “Because they had filmed the show ‘Grandpas Over Flowers’ before, Lee Seo Jin was already aware of Shin Goo’s dietary preferences and he was able to pay meticulous attention to him,” she added.

Have you been able to notice his thoughtful behavior towards his fellow cast members on “Youn’s Kitchen”?

Anyone can translate what's mentioned on YTN news??

Well, Youn's Kitchen is really showing its variety prowess to be even mentioned on prime time news and the tons of articles written about it after each broadcast. The main appeals of this show apart from the mesmerising scenery is the comradery of the main cast and how they overcame all odds to run a pretty small successful restaurant by improvising and listening to customers' feedback. Even when they met with a power crisis and the customers had to wait a really long time, they managed to keep their nerves without major mental breakdown. The cast was hardworking, doing their best to make the restaurant work notably Seojinnie. His image certainly had a 360 degree change from a grumpy 40 something men to a savvy sun loving restaurant manager. Not forgetting Yumi who has showed her sunny positive persona making many viewers fall for her cute charms.

Loving Youn's Kitchen. 

Can really see a change in LSJ.... He's really attentive to the elders. In TMAD, he is hardly the first person to wake up.  But here, he's up bright and early to get all the stuff ready for the day's operation.  I like that they didn't force a love-line between him and Yumi.  But I thought it was quite hard for them to not have breakfast and only have lunch at such late hours.  Guess that's what restaurant operators do.

Jung Yu-mi from "Yoon's Restaurant" delivered a story regarding Lee Seo-jin.

She was interviewed in the May issue of Women Sense and she said, "When I got the call from director Na Yeong-seok, I was interested because I heard Yoon Yeo-jeong was going to be in it. It was also interesting to know that they were running a Korean restaurant in another country".

Jung Yu-mi was the 'maknae' in "Yoon's Restaurant" and she said it was fun. "I wanted to stay longer but Lee Seo-jin said I was crazy".

"It seems tiring but it wasn't. I felt better when I washed dishes. I really enjoyed it there".

(News Focus) CJ E&M's tvN enters experiment mode amid ratings slump

The network's flagship bracket has been the 8-9 p.m. time slots on Fridays and Saturdays, allotted to its biggest shows such as the aforementioned works "Misaeng" and "Guardian."

It later locked down viewers with its popular reality TV shows produced by star director Na Yeong-seok such as the most recent "Youn's Restaurant." This has been tvN's modus operandi for its Friday-Saturday prime time lineup.

Cast Members Of “Youn’s Kitchen” Come Up With Potential Concepts For Second Season

tvN’s much-loved variety show “Youn’s Kitchen” sadly came to an end on May 19.

During the final episode, cast members Shin Goo, Yoon Yeo Jung, Lee Seo Jin, and Jung Yoo Mi gathered to reflect on their time together.

Lee Seo Jin expressed, “I really wanted to put LA galbi (Korean BBQ short ribs) on the menu.”

“LA galbi is really easy to make. We can’t stay in Korea like this. Let’s leave [to another country], Lee Seo Jin,” Yoon Yeo Jung responded, hinting at her desire for another season.

Jung Yoo Mi then suggested Chapagetti (instant black bean noodles) for their next menu. “Would you guys really do another season?” asked Yoon Yeo Jung.

“Didn’t you say you wouldn’t appear on variety shows ever again?” questioned Lee Seo Jin, referring to Yoon Yeo Jung’s previous statement. “It’s okay to change your mind,” he added, suggesting that it’s good to play hard to get with viewers.

Much to everyone’s delight, Yoon Yeo Jung then announced that she has indeed changed her mind.

'Youn's Kitchen' highlights 'slow life' in speed-oriented Korean society

By Park Jin-hai The Korea Times

When director Na Young-suk, well-known for his "Flowers" reality series and "1 Night 2 Days," came up with the idea of "Youn's Kitchen," some voiced concern that it might become the same old show. 

Food-and-travel reality shows have passed their prime and are now on the wane.

However, viewers' responses to "Youn's Kitchen" have been amazing. Since it premiered with a 6.2 percent viewership in March, the nine-episode show's viewership rose to 14 percent and its final episode aired on Friday. The variety show is the second most popular after MBC's "Infinite Challenge" this month.

The Friday show, starring Youn Yeo-jung, Jung Yu-mi, Lee Seo-jin and Shin Gu, broadcasts how these celebrities open, cook and run a pop-up Korean restaurant on a small island near Bali, Indonesia, all within one week.

In the last director's cut that aired Friday, where they reunited at a cafe in Seoul and talked about their experiences on the island, the veteran actress who was cast as the store owner and lead chef, puzzled over the show's huge popularity, said, "Is this fun (to watch)?"

As she wondered, except one episode where the first restaurant had to be taken down only one day after its opening due to the local authorities' beach-cleaning initiative, no dramatic incidents arose.

At the beautiful beachside restaurant, Youn cooks, actress Jung supports Youn's cooking, actor Lee works as the manager and veteran actor Shin greets customers and receives orders as the waiter.

Through microphones installed at each table, conversations of customers from all over the world about the dishes served and the restaurant were picked up and translated.

Viewers said they found the show relaxing and healing. A watcher said, "As a mother of two, I am reluctant to travel, but the show gave me vicarious satisfaction," while another said, "The show's tension-free, plain and natural storytelling was good and made me think about slow life."

While the cast is tasked with actually operating a business, the show's focus was not selling more food, but providing viewers with a sense of relaxation and healing. Director Na previously said, "The place is like a paradise and it shows an easy, slow and happy life. It's something that is unlikely to happen in real life in particular for the young generations of today. So I thought of perhaps delivering an indirect experience." And the program lived up to that purpose.

Culture critics say the reality show's biggest appeal is that it harks back to the viewers' desire to live a slow life in Korea's highly competitive society.

Culture critic Jung Duk-hyun describes the restaurant as a fantasy workplace, where work and play coexist in one place. "Youn's Kitchen is both a place for work and play. They work in a place where sea turtles are swimming out front. This is in stark opposition to our reality, where the workplace is almost a battlefield and completely separated from any place for play," Jung said.

Another critic Ha Jae-geun mentions an episode where Shin hands over the menu and stands beside customers waiting for them to order. "In the Korean way, waiters stay at the table to quickly receive orders and chefs struggle for time to deliver the order quickly. When Shin didn't recognize this and served in the Korean way, Lee advised him not to. Watching the scene, there came the sudden realization on the part of viewers that there is another way of life other than being hurried and beating others to survive," he said.

"When the kitchen was busy, only the Korean staff and viewers watching it on screen were anxious about the serving time. Surrounded in cut-throat Korean society, where speed is a virtue, the show reveals everybody's fantasy about a slow and easy life, delivering viewers a sense of relaxation and healing."

Both Lee Seo Jin and Na PD recently were in France at the Cannes Lion Festival of Creativity.  

This a talk they gave about how NaPD came up with the idea and how LSJ has been central to the success of his shows.

It is the most highly viewed talk of the Festival which features some very famous and creative people from all over the globe.  Their talk has received the most attention and views of any of the featured guests and lectures.  (Currently around 100,000 views and counting)
