'Grandpas Over Flowers' stars to hold photo exhibit in Seoul
BY LEE SUN-MIN l INSIDE Korea JoongAng Daily

Members of entertainment show “Grandpas Over Flowers” on cable channel tvN have decided to hold a photo exhibit to show pictures taken during the making of the program. 
The show is about four veteran actors taking a backpacking trip together to many famous travel destinations. They have gone to many countries, including Taiwan, France and Spain.
Because they weren’t able to share all the fun moments they had within a limited time frame, they decided to show more of them through photos. The exhibition will first be held in a Hyundai Department Store in Sinchon and then in Jung-dong, Gyeonggi. 
Some other branches of the retailer will also host the exhibition until Sept. 10. More information can be found on broadcaster tvN’s website.

During the July 31 broadcast of MBC’s Star Gazing, Sunny brought up Lee Seo Jin, who appeared on tvN’s Grandpas Over Flowers with her. 

About the reason she first rejected the offer to appear on tvN’sGrandpas Over Flowers, Sunny said, “I turned the casting offer down when I first received it. I was in a slump at that time and was afraid that I might just stand in front of the sunbaenims and not even say anything.”

Sunny added, “But Yoona, who was a fan of Grandpas Over Flowers, told me to go on the show. She showed me how Lee Seo Jin oppa kept saying he likes me. Feeling grateful, I decided to appear on the show.”
When MC Kang Ho Dong said, “Since you looked good together, I was hoping that things would work out between Sunny and Lee Seo Jin,” and Sunny said, “I was a fan of H.O.T’s Kangta. I was even a member of the official fan club and went to see his concerts.”

Kang Ho Dong then demanded, “You have to choose between Kangta or Lee Seo Jin,” and after thinking for a moment, Sunny said, “Lee Seo Jin oppa.”

Then Sunny caused laughter by choosing Jo Se Ho over Kim Young Chul and and Kim Young Chul over Hong Seok Cheon.

tvN launches its own award ceremony by javabeans http://www.dramabeans.com/2014/08/tvn-launches-its-own-award-ceremony/

The Big Three broadcasters have one more reason to be wary of tvN, which is nipping at their heels as a rival — and doing a frankly bang-up job of becoming a worthy competitor despite its smaller, newer rookie status as a cable programmer. Now tvN has announced that it’ll be launching its own awards ceremony, just as the broadcasting networks KBS, SBS, and MBC have been doing for years.
According to the announcement made on the 13th, tvN is in full planning mode to usher in its inaugural awards by the end of this year. Other cable outlets have put together various awards shows in the past (such as the Style Icon Awards and Mnet’s Asian Music Awards), but this will be the first instance of a cable station hosting an awards ceremony for programming content

tvN leads cable network boom

Cable channels have captured viewers' attention with fresh ideas for dramas and entertainment programs.
Kim Yu-mi doesn't watch major television channels such as KBS, MBC or SBS as much as before.
The 34-year-old Seoulite, who describes herself a "television show-gore," instead, watches cable networks. Kim said it has been a while since her television remote control stayed on cable channels.
"Cable networks seem to know exactly who their shows are aiming for. While major channels try to embrace every age group, cables are specialized on specific age bracket. To me, cable TV shows are much more interesting," Kim said.
Like Kim, more people watch television entertainment shows and dramas through cable networks than through major channels.It is now a thing of past that KBS TV's entertaining travel show "1 Night, 2 Days" enjoyed more than 40 percent of viewership every Sunday and MBC TV's long-running variety show "Infinite Challenge" witnessed nearly 30 percent in ratings. Nowadays, only around 10 percent of viewers watch those shows.
Cable channels have captured viewers' attention with fresh ideas for dramas and entertainment programs.
Culture critic Bae Kook-nam said the growing popularity of cable networks' shows and dramas came from their economical decision making structure.
"Compared with major television channels, cable networks have more concise and fast decision making system as they have more compact organizational structure," Bae said.
"When a major channel plans to launch its new show, it needs to be approved by multiple layers of decision makers. But, cable channels don't need that."
He also pointed out cable channels could have their strength because they could more practice their selection and concentration strategy than major broadcasters.
"Cable channels don't need to satisfy every age group as they don't have sizable viewers base like majors. This enables cable channels to deal with specific programs that can only target particular age groups," Bae said.
Leading the cable boom is tvN, an affiliate cable network of the country's entertainment mogul CJ E&M.
The entertainment show and drama-specialized-network made their breakthrough last year with "Reply 1994" and "Grandpas over Flowers."
"Grandpas over Flowers," a reality-travel show that casts actors in their 70s to travel around the world was another smash hit product of tvN.
Comprised of veteran actors, the show follows their global trotting journey including France, Spain, Taiwan and more, shaping elderly viewers' fantasies to trip around the world. The average rate of this show chalked up around six to seven percent, which is tremendous in cable network business. Thanks to its huge popularity, the actors featuring in the show enjoyed huge popularity along with appearing in lots of TV commercials.
Stimulated by success of "Grandpas over Flowers," major channels also have broadcasted travel shows casting aged actors.
"Grandpas over Flowers," however, didn't stop at just starring aged male actors — tvN has launched its affiliated travel shows casting celebrities in different age groups.
Last November, "Sisters over Flowers," featuring actresses between 40s and 60s, started to be aired. The show travelled around Turkey and Croatia, and it drew immense popularity, marking 7.5 percent of average viewers' rating.

On the first day of this month, another affiliated show, "Youth over Flowers" began airing. With three male singer-songwriters in their 40s, the show follows them backpacking South American countries. Though it has been airing only three episodes of 10, it has recorded average ratings of 5.8 percent, developing a bond with various age groups including males in their 30 and 40s and females in their 40s and 50s.
"Reply 1994" was created in tune with the retro trend, which was ignited by the 2011 film, "Sunny" and the 2012 film "Architecture 101," focusing on the good old days. Mainly aiming for audiences in their 30s and 40s, the romance comedy drama, set in the year 1994, became a sensation last winter, revisiting the youth culture of 1990s. The last episode of the drama drew 11.9 percent of viewing rate, the highest in history of cable networks.

NBC to remake S. Korean TV show, 'Grandpas Over Flowers'
SEOUL, Sept. 3 (Yonhap) -- NBC, a major American TV network, will remake a popular South Korean TV reality show with the aim of broadcasting it in the first half of next year, the show's local broadcaster said Wednesday.
"Grandpas Over Flowers," a reality show about five actors in their 70s going on a backpack tour around the world, was a smash hit when it was aired on the cable channel tvN last year.
The show's format has recently been sold to NBC through an American distributor, tvN said, adding that it became the first local TV entertainment show whose format was exported to a major TV network in the United States.
The remade version of the show will be aired across the U.S., possibly in the first half of next year, under the title "Better Late than Never," it said.
The show will be produced by the acclaimed motion picture, TV and theater producing team of Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, best known for the American films "Chicago" (2002), "Hairspray" (2007) and "The Bucket List" (2007), tvN said.

U.S. remakes ‘Grandpas’ reality show
BY LEE SUNG-EUN Korea JoongAng Daily

“Grandpas Over Flowers,” a local reality show aired on cable channel tvN, will be remade by U.S. network NBC, the show’s broadcaster announced yesterday. 
The show will be titled “Better Late Than Never,” with the aim to launch early next year, CJ E&M said. 
“Grandpas Over Flowers,” which first aired last year, followed five actors in their 70s leaving Korea for a backpacking trip around the world with the help of a younger actor. National viewership ratings were so high that a spin-off featuring four top actresses was created last November. The show will be the first local entertainment program to be exported to a major U.S. network, the broadcaster said. 
“Better Late Than Never” will be produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who formerly worked on the movies “The Bucket List” (2007), “Chicago” (2002) and “Hairspray” (2007), as well as the TV series “Happyland” (2014) and “Smash” (2013). Casting is under way. 
Negotiations for the export have been ongoing since a year ago, the producer of “Grandpas Over Flowers” said in an interview with local news outlet Newsen, adding that he didn’t expect the idea to become a reality. 
“When I first received the offer from NBC, I laughed it off,” Na Young-seok was reported to have said in the interview. 
“Now that I see some progression, I’m psyched.”

Grandpas Over Flowers gets remade for American TVby awcoconuts | September 4, 2014Halbae2.jpg
And evil genius Na PD continues on the path of global dominion. The concept for his highly successful and groundbreaking variety show Grandpas Over Flowers has become the first-ever Korean reality show exported to American broadcast TV. While CJ E&M, the media conglomerate that owns tvN and other cable channels, has sold shows to other countries (game show The Genius was sold to the Netherlands earlier this year, and the Chinese version of Grandpas Over Flowers aired just recently), Na PD’s unique brand of sadistic humor will finally reach U.S. audiences next fall, as NBC has bought the format and will remake it into a show titled Better Late Than Never.

American television station NBC has purchased the rights to remake the South Korean variety show "Grandpas Over Flowers."

While three k-dramas are up for an American remake this year, this is the first time that American television has considered remaking a Korean variety show.

The American version will be called "Better Late Than Never."

The original show was launched in 2013 by tvN and the title parodies the manga and hit k-drama "Boys Over Flowers." In the original k-drama Lee Min Ho, Kim Bum, Kim Hyun Joong and Kim Joon played four well-to-do attractive students at an exclusive school. In the variety show, "Grandpas Over Flowers," four veteran 70-something actors went on a backpacking tour of Europe accompanied by a young porter. The veteran actors featured on the program were Park Geun Hyung, Baek Il Seob, Shin Goo and Lee Soon Jae.

Focusing a television series on the adventures of four senior citizens is a gamble, as the television market is primarily youth-oriented. But the gamble taken by producers CJ E&M has paid off. The series was so successful that it led to two spinoffs titled "Sisters Over Flowers" and "Friends Over Flowers."

Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who collaborated on "The Bucket List," "Sound of Music" and the upcoming NBC series "Peter Pan," are set to produce the American version. Small World IFT will handle international distribution, except in Asian territories, where CJ E&M will produce local versions with Chinese and Southeast Asian partners.

The company is also negotiating with American buyers over another variety show, "Crazy Market" and the remake of the successful k-drama "Reply 1997."

According to Lee Seok Jae, a senior marketing executive at CJ E&M, it is an exciting time for the company as their market is expanding beyond Asia.

"We are not simply exporting ideas but selling full packages of show formats," he said.

American television producers have been paying more attention to Korean television content. CBS has agreed to produce a remake of the medical k-drama "Good Doctor," which starred Joo Won and Moon Chae Won. The adaptation will be co-produced by actor Daniel Dae Kim's production company 3AD, a subsidiary of CBS. Kim starred in "Lost" and "Hawaii Five-O."

The other k-drama up for a remake is "Nine: Nine Time Travels," which starred Lee Jin Wook. Yunjin Kim, who also starred in "Lost" and a few k-dramas, is producing the remake of that drama.

And now, what you really wanted: a show about traveling grandpas…because you’re only as old as your itinerary! Entertainment Weekly reports that NBC will adapt a South Korean traveling show about grandpas who get global. The original South Korean show was called Grandpas Over Flowers, and your guess is as good as mine if that’s a literally minded title (“they will sleep over flowers because they are creatures of nature!”) or a metaphor for flying above the clouds in an airplane or lying in a graveyard — not to be morbid or anything, but we all know that a show about traveling grandpas is really just a big cry of “YOLO,” grandpa style. The American version will be called Better Late Than Never, so really, it is about YOLO-ing it up. And hey, who says you’re too old to take up backpacking, anyway?! 

According to Varietythe American Version will apparently feature four reputable actorsas they backpack throughout Asia with a young porter. It remains unknown as of now who these actors will be (and who this fine young porter will be), but it’s fair to assume that they’re looking to revitalize their career via reality television because careers can similarly follow a “better late than never” mentality, right?

But if the show is anything like the trailer for the South Korean show (which calls it “the most adorable journey”), then it will be pretty great. If you like old men bonding together through travel, then by all means. YOURS. But if only it was called The Brotherhood of The Traveling Grandpas. IF ONLY.

You can watch the original South Korean trailer below, and see if it gives you any ideas about what the American version might be like. It’s got great music, for one thing. And it’s also got this great moment:

A popular South Korean variety show is reportedly being adapted for American network television.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has bought the rights to the popular show “Grandpas Over Flowers” and it will soon be remade for an American audience.

“Grandpas Over Flowers” debuted last year on the Korean channel TvN. The show followed four veteran South Korean actors (Lee Soon Jae, Shin Gu, Park Geun Hyun and Baek Il Sub) as they backpacked through Europe with a young guide, documenting each step of the journey along the way.

A hit since its debut, the show has already inspired two spin-offs including an all-female version called Sisters Over Flowers.

The Korean entertainment company CJ E&M announced the deal on Wednesday. The American version of show will reportedly be titled "Better Late Than Never" and will feature four veteran actors backpacking across Asia.

NBC has not made any announcements about the new show.

NBC to Remake South Korean Variety Show 'Grandpas Over Flowers'

8:08 PM PST 09/02/2014 by Lee Hyo-won | The Hollywood reporter

This will be the first U.S. adaptation of a Korean variety show

NBC has bought the remake rights for hit South Korean variety show Grandpas Over Flowers, Korean entertainment giant CJ E&M announced Wednesday.

The American version, dubbed Better Late Than Ever, will feature four veteran actors on a backpacking trip across Asia with a young porter. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who have collaborated onThe Bucket List, Sound of Music and NBC's upcoming Peter Pan, will produce the show.

Grandpas Over Flowers debuted in July 2013 on cable channel tvN, garnering rave reviews and popularity across Korea and other Asian countries. It has since aired two seasons as well as a spin-off program starring renowned actresses, Sisters Over Flowers. Another series, Friends Over Flowers, launched last month.

While U.S. buyers have often expressed interest in Korean TV dramas, this marks the first time a North American national broadcast network is adapting a local variety program. Small World IFT will handle international distribution for Grandpas Over Flowers except for Asian territories, where CJ E&M is co-producing localized versions of popular shows with Chinese and Southeast Asian partners.

CJ E&M is also negotiating sales for another variety show, Crazy Market, and the hit TV drama Reply 1997, with an American buyer.

"It is an exciting time for CJ E&M as our original show formats are receiving recognition in the global market, going beyond Asia," said Lee Deok-Jae, senior marketing executive at CJ E&M. "We are not simply exporting ideas but selling full packages of show formats, but are also leading the development and expansion of Korea TV content while enhancing our brand power in the global media industry."

Bear Grylls is getting some company in the travel-variety show department on NBC, except with less of a death-defying quality.

According to Variety, NBC is set to produce a travel variety show adapted from the South Korean show, Grandpas Over Flowers, which is described in its trailer as “a new docu-reality entertainment format that takes you on the most adorable journey.” The Korean version of the show features four ‘grandpas’ over the age of 70, backpacking across Europe with the aid of an unassuming porter who also serves as a cook and driver. In a similar fashion, the American version will be called Better Late Than Neverand will feature four distinguished actors backpacking across Asia with a young porter.

The company behind Grandpas Over Flowers, CJ Entertainment & Media, also sold the format of the show to China’s Dragon TV, who will be producing a similar show within a more localized context.

Below, watch the international trailer for the Korean show that explains the concept of the show with a lot more cutesy graphics.

By Katie Rife  A.V. Club Sep 4, 2014 3:36 PM

Freak shows may be thing of the past (non-fiction ones anyway), but there are two groups that it’s still culturally acceptable to mock on television: the obese and the elderly. NBC, never one to pass up a gimmick, has taken note of this phenomenon and is developing two new shows that will not only ensure that America’s elders will never get the respect they deserve, but will further exacerbate the cycle of unreasonable expectations and inevitable disappointment that makes people overeat in the first place.

Anyway, the first show is called Better Late Than Never and is based on a South Korean reality show, meaning that middle-aged Japanese women are going to go richard simmons nuts for it. The basic concept revolves around a group of four seasoned actors who backpack across Asia accompanied by a porter, who is presumably there to explain to them what a Snapchat is. The original show,Grandpas Over Flowers, was a massive success for CJ Entertainment & Media, one of Asia’s largest entertainment companies, and has spawned both sibling- and friend-based spinoffs.

The second is called Weight For Love and is based on NBC’s own The Biggest Loser, a show that has been a massive success for NBC in both the ratings and punny title department. In this installment, overweight couples will be separated for an extended period of time “in order to regain their health,” before being reunited in “an emotional reveal.” Whether Weight For Lovemakes it to TV depends on a series of casting calls taking place in Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles over the next couple of weeks.

Na PD baits Lee Seo-jin to headline new variety showby girlfriday | September 5, 2014NaPD_LeeSeoJin1.jpg

girlfriday: Ooh, Na PD (Na Young-seok) is doing a new show! Okay, so technically he’s always doing a new show with Grandpas Over Flowers leading to Noonas and Youths and so forth, but apparently he’s switching gears with his next variety program and stepping away from the Over Flowers theme.

javabeans: Is it really switching gears, though, when he’s casting (possibly) Lee Seo-jin, aka Seo Genie, aka Seojinnie, and making it another outdoor variety show while courting other members as well? Is this really just 1 Night, 2 Days, 3 Luggage Boys?

girlfriday: Knowing Na PD, it’s entirely possible he’s lying through his teeth on purpose, just so he can trick Seojinnie into doing Cranky Oppas Over Flowers.

javabeans: Or is he making good on his joke-threat and actually planning King of Cooking where every episode Seo-jin fails?

girlfriday: That would be awesome. I guess the real genius is that he knows he can just stick Seojinnie in front of a camera and get something good, as long as there’s complaining involved.

javabeans: I love that he was actually surprised how good Seo-jin was in the firstGrandpas Over Flowers, and now he just doesn’t want to let him go. Concept is irrelevant! Get Seo-jin! He knows gold when he sees it.

girlfriday: Seriously.

javabeans: It’s the birth of a new creator-muse power duo. You know, Woody Allen had Diane Keaton, Scorcese had DeNiro, Tim Burton has Johnny Depp…

girlfriday: And now Na PD has Seojinnie! Really, their bromance makes me genuinely happy, I don’t know why. Because it’s begrudging, maybe?

javabeans: There’s an added layer because Seo-jin is older and Na PD totally regards him as this older brother, and so it’s respect mixed with annoyance and pestering.

girlfriday: I also think Na PD isn’t often outsmarted by his stars, but Seo-jin is quick and it makes for a more balanced (and hilariously contentious) relationship.

javabeans: Taken at face value I can see how this untitled, undescribed variety show could be great, but when has Na PD ever announced something and then given us that? I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop.

girlfriday: Yeah all we know so far is that it’s an outdoor variety show (meaning just that it’s not shot in a studio), it’s planning to air after Youths Over Flowers in mid-October, and they’re looking into other cast members, maybe. Way to be vague.

javabeans: I’m pretty sure suffering is a given.

girlfriday: Na PD wouldn’t have it any other way.

I love this two together. like super duper love them. and them having a show where Na PD tries his best to make LSJ suffer is just the one of the most epic thing ever. But I think I would love another Grandpas over flower again, I want all the halbaes travelling... and maybe add another halbae or two just to increase the ante of Lee Seo Jin suffering... but Seo jin in a cooking show is not a bad idea also, I think Na PD would make it epic just by complaining at all the ingredients that LSJ wll buy, prepare and cook...luff luff them both....
