Na Young Seok PD said that the new backpacking project to be unveiled on cable channel tvN in upcoming mid-November will have a different concept of fun and touching moments compared to ‘Grandpas Over Flowers’ (aka. Grandpas Flowers).
Na PD currently told Star News, “‘Female Actresses Special’ will have a totally different image from ‘Grandpas Over Flowers’” saying “there are no plans to stop at merely changing the actors from ‘Grandpas Over Flowers’ to only female actresses.”
The ‘Female Actresses Special’ that Lee Seung Gi confirmed his appearance in as a ‘porter’ will include Yoon Yeo Jung (age 66), Kim Ja Ok (age 62), Kim Hee Ae (age 46), and Lee Mi Yeon (age 42). These actresses recently confirmed their appearance verbally. They are planning to depart in early November.
In order to repay viewers of ‘Grandpas Over Flowers’ for their love and support, Na PD stated, “This female actresses special isn’t only a trip about the porter and the members changing; rather, it is a distinguishable trip where I am in the middle of doing my best to offer fun and touching moments.”
He kept silent about the travel destination. Most have already partially inferred that the female actresses will be departing for Spain.
Na PD was careful with his words by stating, “Of course travel plans will be for an area that ‘Grandpas Over Flowers’ hasn’t been to”. “Letting the female actresses know of their travel destination is included among the contents of the broadcast. I think announcing it ahead of time will impede the broadcast.” he said with a laugh.
Meanwhile, in this special with female actresses, Lee Seung Gi participating as a ‘porter’ is raising expectations. Leading the way, actor Lee Seo Jin in ‘Grandpas Over Flowers’ who participated as a porter with Lee Soon Jae, Shin Gu, Park Geun Hyung, and Baek Il Seob traveled to Europe and Taiwan receiving love from viewers for his “reverse charm”. ‘Grandpas Over Flowers’ is scheduled to start broadcasting part 3 next January after the broadcast of ‘Female Actresses Special’ concludes.
