7/7 seems to be a serendipitous day indeed for fans of Yoo Yeon Seok, who garnered love and a devoted fanbase thanks to his recent portrayal of baseball player Chilbong in tvN’s “Reply 1994”. And it seems our man will be back on television soon… much to all of our collective sighs and relief. He, alongside “Reply 1994” cast mates Son Ho Joon and Baro, were photographed at Incheon International Airport preparing for departure to Laos. It has also been reported that they will be traveling with Shin PD, who directed both of the Reply dramas.
It has now come to light that they will, in fact, be the part of the next group to participate in travel program “Youth Over Flowers”. Na PD, of “1 Day 2 Nights” fame, as well as hits “Grandpas Over Flowers” and “Noonas Over Flowers,” will be at the helm. The total of 6 cast are divided into 2 teams, consisting of participants in their 20’s and 40’s. The 20’s team will comprise of Yoo Yeon Seok, Son Ho Joon and Baro, and Shin PD will presumably be in the 40’s team.
I, for one, am extremely happy about this news. It will be great to see Yoo Yeon Seok back on the small screen (an even smaller one for me since I have no doubt I will be watching from my tablet or my phone), and to see him participating as himself with his Reply cast mates will be enjoyable to see. He has such a sparkling personality whenever he is in Variety Programs, so I am hoping we see all of that on this show as well. I just hope he has time to get plenty of rest between all his CF and film shootings and promotions.
The first episode is expected to air in August 2014.
On another note, it’s also a very happy day whenever Trugen releases any pictures of our boy, and this has also been seen circulating around today as well. It’s a great day to be a Yeonizen!
