They finally got more than $2000 donated by the customers on the 6th day, during the night opening of Coffee Friends. Having Chef BJW certainly helped them get through the super busy night. For sure the production would have their back-up plans & helpers standing by but most importantly everyone have to be more confident and calm (BJW gave good tips). At times they really get (shown in the previous episodes).. as they themselves said it, flustered and almost panicking. Luckily, this time everything went well even when they were out of bread for awhile.

COFFEE FRIENDS, well done!cuppa.gif

Whyyy :o.. they're already ending on the 8th day?!! :sweatingbullets: So, there will (only) be one more episode showing the cafe opening for lunch and dinner on the last day. :( Thought there would at least be 10 days (10 episodes)..:tears:

 

Nonetheless, it's really good to see Dishwasher Jo returning to the last episode as they hoped he will.. everyone got so emotional as well.

What?!?!?! There are only 8 episodes?!?!?! Will there be a season 2?!

 

EDIT: Oh, 9 episodes in all right? The one with NJH will be the last? Also, so happy NJH came back. I also awwww-ed when they showed a list of all his part-time jobs.

@lollyminx now that you've mentioned it, even if there're just 9 episodes.. there's always high chance for season 2 and more. I kept thinking it's like Kdramas when there's usually no continuation. th_duh.gifSo, even if it's less than 10 episodes, we can look forward for next time.. just have to wait a bit longer.

 

It's really impressive to see SHJ and NJH again from their awkward 3 Meals a Day stint.. talent-wise, they've grown so much indeed! Managing a cafe plus cooking, baking & preparing various drinks and everything.. just amazing work from everyone. th_thumbup.gif

“Coffee Friends” PD On Working With Yoo Yeon Seok And Son Ho Jun, Talks Reactions To Donation Sum

âCoffee Friendsâ PD On Working With Yoo Yeon Seok And Son Ho Jun, Talks Reactions To Donation Sum

 

Producing director (PD) Park Hee Yeon of tvN’s “Coffee Friends” shared her thoughts on the show in an interview.

 

“Coffee Friends” is is a reality show in which Son Ho Jun, Yoo Yeon Seok, Choi Ji Woo, and Yang Se Jong run a cafe on Jeju Island with their profits going to charity. The cafe’s menu does not list the price for each item, instead allowing customers to donate however much they want for the food and beverages.

 

“The cast and staff don’t think that the donations are a small amount of money,” began PD Park Hee Yeon. “We’re grateful to everyone who donated. We began with the idea of donating without pressure, and decided on a menu without prices.”

 

The show is full of things to watch from PD Park Hee Yeon’s beautiful images to star guests such as TVXQ’s Yunho, EXO’s Sehun, and Nam Joo Hyuk. Despite airing during the competitive time slot of Friday nights, “Coffee Friends” has secured stable viewership ratings ranging in the five to six percent range.

 

She attributed the show’s success to Yoo Yeon Seok and Son Ho Jun and their coffee truck donation campaign, which was the basis for the format of the show. “I thought that it’d be nice if the cast continuously remodeled the warehouse,” said PD Park Hee Yeon. “The two of them were the ones who came up with the idea first. We work well together.”

 

She continued, “Yoo Yeon Seok, who’s a chef on the show, is a perfectionist. He places importance on the taste of the food and the reactions of the customers. Whenever he has time, he walks around the cafe and talks with the customers. Son Ho Jun, the barista, is calm. He could become overwhelmed when orders get backed up, but he remains composed.”

On the sixth day, the cafe surpassed its highest profit of 2 million won (approximately $1,800). Viewers differ in their opinions about the donations, and some commented that this was a small amount when taking into consideration the amount and quality of the food as well as the high price of Jeju Island.

 

The PD stated, “We’re emphasizing the importance of experiencing ‘happy giving.’ There were people who gave a large amount and some who didn’t. Despite that, we revealed the total amount because I thought that it fit the purpose of the show.”

 

PD Park Hee Yeon has a long history of producing food variety shows including “House Cook Master Baek” and “Street Food Fighter.” With “House Cook Master Baek,” she got to know Baek Jong Won and formed a deep interest in food, which then led to “Coffee Friends.”

 

Describing herself as someone who has taste blindness, she confessed, “Food variety is a charming but difficult genre. There are so many shows that there is some pressure to stand out.”

 

She concluded, “Baek Jong Won and Son Ho Jun’s new menu creations will continue. I also think that the part-time workers will all show their different charms. The growth of the cast as they gain experience will be a point to watch out for in the second half of the show.”

This show should put up a caution for viewers discretion.. do not watch on an empty stomach, preferably watch while eating a meal. :P

I cannot stress how I LOVE  this show. All the part-timers along with the chemistry of the Coffee Friends is just light-hearted and heartwarming at the same time. Plus, can we talk about their music throughout the episodes? IT IS AMAZING. :heart:

Sad that it's gonna end. Hoping for Season 2. Who's with me?

LOL! They even insert an eerie horror background music when the orders got mixed up.. rewinding the scene to check what happened. 

 

Hello @egoswithpopcorn  @jjoy84 and everyone (it's almost the end sob!sob!).. I sure hope there will be a season 2 and all 5 of them should return, of course. They're such a great team and indeed, the guests are celebrity friends so totally sporting. But will it be in Jeju again, will the cafe in an orchard concept be retained? But then, they've renovated the cafe really nice and who will use it after this? It's really a lot of work to be considered.. a lot of preparation have to be done.. just watching each episode, they're always coming up with more complicated dishes.

 

Hopefully it won't be too stressful and waiting for good news for the viewers. It's truly a cozy foodie show.

 

Tonight's episode: There's a bit of break between the day and night opening, the friends took the chance for photos around the cafe and their lodging place.

Oh nooooo it's the last episode. I'm about to watch it. I agree with everyone. I hope they do a season 2 even if it is hard and they probably have new projects. They can do 2-day shoots in between! :D Also, I hope to see YSJ in other similar variety shows because he's a really good worker. How much he's progressed since day 1 is amazing. From a dishwasher to an all around employee.

@lollyminx YSJ is such a hard worker. Fast learner and just does everything well. I think they really had a good team here. I would love to see them again in season 2.

Looks like the next variety show to replace Coffee Friends will be PD Na's 'Boarding House in Spain' with Chajumma and Papa Yoo.

 

Can't wait for another awesome show! 176.gif
