Yoo Yeon Seok And Son Ho Jun To Star In New Variety Show With Choi Ji Woo And Yang Se Jong As First Guests

 

Yoo Yeon Seok and Son Ho Jun will be bringing warmth to viewers with their own variety show!

 

On December 3, it was announced that tvN will be airing a new reality show titled “Coffee Friends.” The show will follow Yoo Yeon Sok and Son Ho Jun as they run a cafe located in a tangerine farm on Jeju Island, and they will donate all of their profit to a charitable cause.

 

The show is inspired by the duo’s “Coffee Friends” project, where they gave cups of coffee to citizens in exchange for donations. The goal was to show people that it isn’t difficult to start donating to those in need. Now, they will be taking the concept to another level as they sell coffee and brunch at a cafe.

 

Anticipation is rising as it has been revealed that producing director (PD) Na Young Suk will be a creative director for the show. He has worked with the two actors on popular variety shows like “Youth Over Flowers” and “Three Meals a Day.” The show will be directed by PD Park Hee Yeon, who has co-directed many shows with PD Na Young Suk as well as programs like “Teacher Baek” and “Street Food Fighter.”

 

Just like how Yoo Yeon Seok and Son Ho Jun invited friends to help run their coffee truck for the “Coffee Friends” project, the show will also invite guests to work as part-time employees. The first guests on the show will be Choi Ji Woo and Yang Se Jong. Choi Ji Woo was invited by Son Ho Jun after getting to know each other on “Three Meals a Day,” and Yang Se Jong will be making his first-ever variety show appearance after being invited by Yoo Yeon Seok.

 

PD Park Hee Yeon said, “We have decided to launch this new variety show after being inspired by the donation project Yoo Yeon Seok and Son Ho Jun led this year. The various happenings that take place in the cafe will move viewers and also bring laughter to them.”

 

Yoo Yeon Seok and Son Ho Jun’s “Coffee Friends” is set to premiere on tvN in January 2019.

“Coffee Friends” will be a variety show that follows Yoo Yeon Seok and Son Ho Jun as they run a cafe in a tangerine farm on Jeju Island, with their profits being donated to charity. The show was inspired by the two close friends and their “Coffee Friends” donation project this year.


Choi Ji Woo and Yang Se Jong will be the first guests on the show, and they will be working as part-time employees at the cafe. Choi Ji Woo was invited by Son Ho Jun as they had previously met through “Three Meals a Day,” while Yang Se Jong was invited by Yoo Yeon Seok as they had appeared on “Romantic Doctor Kim” together.

It seems that U-Know Yunho will play a huge role in tvN’s new reality program “Coffee Friends.”

 

On Friday, actor Son Ho-jun, who is set to star in the program, talked about the TVXQ member’s upcoming appearance in the show during a press conference for the program held in Seoul on Friday. 

 

Starring Son and actor Yoo Yun-suk, “Coffee Friends” will feature the two actors running a pop-up, non-profit cafe on Jeju Island, located at a tangerine farm. As part of a charity project, all proceeds from the selling will be donated.

Asked about the most impressive guest who has featured in the show, Son said, “It was U-Know Yunho. As we know, he is very passionate and competitive. And when he attended a giveaway event in the program, he just became himself.”

 

“Yunho’s episode earned the most donations, and he keeps calling us to get updated with the record. It will be amusing to watch him in the show,” he added.

 

Having risen as an icon for passion for his positive personality and energy, Yunho recently wrapped up his fan meeting in Seoul that celebrated TVXQ’s 15th anniversary. 

 

“Coffee Friends” is set to premiere later on the day at 9:10 p.m.

Inaugural episode of 'Coffee Friends' lands high on weekly TV chart


SEOUL, Jan. 9 (Yonhap) -- Entertainment-oriented cable channel tvN's new reality show "Coffee Friends" landed high on the weekly TV program chart in the week of the show's debut, data showed Wednesday.

 

The tvN program, which ran its first episode on Friday, earned a Content Power Index (CPI) score of 239.4 for the week of Dec. 31-Jan. 6.

 

The brand new show famously employed two heartthrobs, Son Ho-joon and Yoo Yeon-seok. Yoo cemented his presence with a breakout role in the wildly successful 2018 tvN drama series "Mr. Sunshine."

The new reality program was inspired by the two close friends' private charity project of the same title. The program reflects the continuing popularity of reality shows featuring gastronomy and celebrities in South Korea.

 

"Coffee Friends" follows the two young bachelors' attempt to build a brunch place out of a tangerine farm house on the scenic Jeju Island.

 

Other big-name entertainers, including Choi Ji-woo, are invited as guests of the Friday night show to add sparkle.

 

The weekly chart was topped by tvN drama series "Encounter," starring Song Hye-kyo and Park Bo-gum. The Wednesday-Thursday program depicts the journey of Cha Soo-hyun, a daughter of a high-profile politician who divorced her chaebol husband, to find her true love.

 

"Encounter" garnered a 269.4 CPI score and was followed by the SBS drama series "The Last Empress," which earned 252.6.

 

CPI, created by CJ E&M and Nielsen Korea, measures the level of popularity, social media presence and influence on consumer behavior of entertainment TV programs aired on the three major terrestrial networks -- MBC, SBS and KBS -- and the seven cable channels owned by CJ ENM, including tvN, Mnet and OCN, during prime time.

 

JTBC, another cable network that airs some highly popular entertainment shows and dramas, is not included in the measurement.

PREVIEW: Episode 3 (2019.01.18)

 

Looks like they've included more variety in the brunch menu and added another table & more seats, too. Will this bring more pressure as well? ^_^

The drawing by a customer in episode 3 :blush:

Wished the program would show the preparation segment, particularly how they created the two large windows for the cafe and the interior design for the kitchen, etc. Maybe it'll be shown in the finale, the director's cut.. perhaps?

I'm loving this new show so far !

Listening to the customers has been interesting...

Son Ho Jun waiting for customers reminded me of his character at the end of Terrius Behind Me.

Running Yang Se Jong keeps reminding me of his character in 30but17.

 

Questions:

  • How long will the part-timers stay ? Is it just depending on themselves and their schedule?
  • How do you feel about bringing more part-timers? Looks like they would need the help, but will it not get too crowded?
  • If you were there, where would you want to be seated? By the window to admire the tangerine trees? Or in the tent for the fun? Or at the counter to see the behind the scenes? Or at a table? I'd pick the counter!

1. :lol: hmmm.. i hope cutie YSJ gets to stay till the end of the show heee... he is very blur and cute:P. Seems like he is not so 'well-known' in Korea yet? He won quite a few awards lately.:grimace:

Cto:

2. I dont mind more cuties on board but i think maybe the senior male actor doing the washing (i dont know his name) will probably stop helping out ?:tounge_wink:

3. Yap! Counter seat the best view ya? Ya.
