More crackling wit from Grandpas Over Flowers

The more promo I see for this show the more excited I get. tvN’s new travel variety show Grandpas Over Flowers is gearing up for its premiere in just two weeks, and things are looking good. First, there’s just a whole lot of Na PD (Na Young-seok, of 1 Night 2 Days) in front of the camera, and that just makes me happy. Also, the grandpas are hilariously witty and frank, as grandpas often are. No beating around the bush for these guys, that’s for sure.

The show stars mat-hyung Lee Soon-jae (Childless Good Fortune, The King 2 Hearts), second hyung Shin Gu (Hundred Year Inheritance, Feast of the Gods), third hyung Park Geun-hyung (The Chaser, King of Dramas), and maknae Baek Il-sub (Be Strong Mr. Kim, Ojakkyo Brothers) as the four members of a brand new variety bromance. They went to Paris on their first trip with guest Lee Seo-jin, and have since been backpacking in Europe.

In a recent teaser, maknae gramps Baek Il-sub points out a technicality in his age (he says he’s 69, not 70), and Shin Gu gripes that he can’t be a child forever, sighing, “It’s just a moment.” Till he’s one of them? Heh. And in the teaser below, Na PD sits down with the grandpas to ask them about some missions that involve high-flying adventure:

Na PD: How about a hot-air balloon?
Baek Il-sub: So it can pop and we die?
Na PD: [shows picture of skydiving] So… this might be difficult then?
Lee Soon-jae: You’d have to bring along two or three coffins.

LOL. Grandpas Over Flowers premieres July 5 on tvN.

I don't watch Korean Variety shows. Just not my thing and most times the humor seems forced. But, I really want to watch this one. Someone please sub it.

Also, Lee Son Jae, must have been a rascal in his youth, lol.

Unbelievable, yet, that's how Korean culture seems to go: eldest makes the decisions, and the maknae goes along. Even on Appa Odiga, the maknae, who is Yoon Minsoo, just keeps his mouth shut and goes along with the other dads. And I thought that was weird for a man in his 30s.

Right? I would want to call my grandpas too, but they've both gone ahead and passed on.

Hope this show is a hit.

How does everyone watch variety shows mostly? I usually only watch dramas, but this one looks like it could be a lot of fun. Suggestions? Ideas? (Or can they be found on the same sites as dramas?)

Well, you can find Running Man and a few idol themed variety on dramacrazy.net but kshowonline.com has every popular variety.

For me the reason is Joo Won and Si Kyung in 1N2D and the hilarity for Running Man :D

I watch KBSWORLD on youtube. They recently started posting some stuff. I love Human Condition but it seems they've stopped subbing it? Regardless, KBS is conscious of it's overseas audience and is doing pretty well in providing legal videos.

Oh goodness! They are hilarious! All the while keeping a straight face with their killer one-liners! I have a strong feeling that this show will supersede 1n2d in now time. I mean the previous 1n2d production team is there! I am sure someone will sub it and recap it! Am so looking forward to it!

"You'd have to bring along two or three coffins." Heeee!
Reminds me of my grandpa, and he was the best guy ever.

If this gets subbed, I'm totally in. Bring me the snarky grandpas, tvN!

Thanks for the update GF. This sounds awesome. To think how far Na PD has come. I imagine 'Grandpas no holds barred' could have been an alternative title.

Finally a variety show that could be in pair with Running Man in my all heart and soul. I'm already laughing just by reading their witty comments, LMAO.
Park Geun Hyung, I freakin' love him and I know it seems weird coming from 19 years old girl but heck, I watched a lot of dramas with him and so, he seems so familiar to me. Plus, I really love his mentality over what a good actor is. It is very similar to mine :)

Yeah, I tried "Dad, where are we going" but I stopped watching at episode 7 or 8 because I got bored and I usually really love family interactions and all but for this one, it didn't make it. A shame because I really loved Lee Jong Hyuk and Junsu together. They were really hilarious especially when one fell asleep and the other snoring like a pig XD.

Infinity Challenge was one of the first variety shows I watched along XMAN and I love it but I can't seem to be in love with it as much as RM. My favorite episode is the Tail Game where they have to catch each other's tail according to a color. It reminds me of RM's nametag in a sense <3

This is seriously funny! But we are talking about Na PD here! He can persuade them to do anything by the end of the show!
