Lee Seung-gi to be Na PD’s next luggage boy

Ermagerd. You guuuuuyssss, Na PD and Seung-gi, together again! WHO’S EXCITED? Lee Seung-gi has confirmed that he’ll be teaming up with PD Na Young-seok for the next season of tvN’s Grandpas Over Flowers, except this time, it’ll be with four actresses instead. It’s being called a Part 2 of his travel backpacking series, so we’ll have to wait and see if it gets called Grandmas Over Flowers or something else. Truthfully, you could tell me it was a special about watching paint dry, and I’d still tune in for this bromance.

The destination and main cast are still unconfirmed, but being courted are Yoon Yeo-jung (Aging Family, The King 2 Hearts) and Kim Hee-ae (A Wife’s Credentials, Midas). Kim Hee-ae’s too young for it to be a grandma special, so they might have to just call it an actress special if she joins. Yoon Yeo-jung would be fabulous, and has played Seung-gi’s onscreen mom, so that’s just going to be buckets of adorable. Can you just imagine all the mom-love that’s coming his way?

The plan is to have four actresses just like the halbae cast, with Seung-gi as the luggage boy a la Seo-jinnie. He was in fact recruited for the first season of Grandpas Over Flowers, but couldn’t manage it with his drama Gu Family Book; he’s since been meeting with Na PD to match their schedules for this next trip.

I hope there’s a chance for Seung-gi to go on a trip with the halbaes after this, because I think they’d be less doting and give him a harder time. I’m sure the actress special will be fun (and KBS’s copycat program has already premiered, which now I want to see just so I can compare), but I’m concerned they’ll all be too nice. Who’s going to be Il-sub halbae’s granny counterpart? Or will forcing veteran actresses to share a bathroom bring out the grumpypants in everyone anyway?

It’s already been two years since Seung-gi and Na PD parted ways with KBS’s first season of 1 Night 2 Days, where they had a five-year run and at times held 40% ratings. And if you couldn’t tell already, I’m over the moon about them working together again.

Season 2 of Halbae (the Taiwan trip) is airing now, and will take a fall/winter break while the Seung-gi/Actress season airs in November. But never fear, because the halbaes will return in January with their next trip, after they’ve had time to recharge.

Grandpas Over Flowers airs on Fridays on tvN.

I'm so excited! It's been toooo long since Seunggi been in variety. So happy to see Yoon Yeo-jung too!

I can't imagine the women being anything but nice to him, but I'm sure Na PD will surprise us all. I don't really expect a GOF copy with women and a new luggage boy. But I can't say I care about what it's about. Just seeing the two together again will be good enough for me.

Lol is Seo-Jinnie reading the news? I'm picturing that scene where he asked Na PD if he was the first one recruited for Grandpas over Flowers and Na PD of course swore up and down that there was only him :D

hahaha.... Na PD is really good for variety......

I am not meant to be spoiler here... but, you know that Seung Gi and Seo-Jinnie are besties, right? In fact, Seo-Jinnie was on the trip with Seung Gi to Osaka from 28 Aug to 1 Sep 2013. They are also in the same agency. So, I am sure Seo-Jinnie knows about the news beforehand.

Oh, I hope we have access to this subbed. It sounds like fun. I do like LSG in variety, he is charming.

Good news, this will help replace the last memory of Kangchi in a white Ferrari. *shudders*

GF (or anyone who knows), how do the seasons work in SK? You mentioned a that season 1 of 1D2N was five years long. So, if the PD or cast do not change, it is considered the same season?

"Season" is used very loosely with variety shows. There's no uniformity from show to show, and mostly the term is simply used to denote a change -- 1N2D decided it would have a second season when the PD/cast changed, Family Outing did the same, etc. Length varies each time.

But with Grandpas Over Flowers, they're calling each trip a season -- cable is doing shorter seasons for everything (SNL Korea is like this), so it's just a different use.

i don't think there'll be Seung gi and halbae's because its a spot meant to Seo Jinnie...I will always be grateful that Lee Seo Jin did it. I wouldn't want it other wise its like NA PD said the best thing he did in that show was cast him. With Seung gi this time around the variety they will join in with PD NA will have a different story. Its like the role amazingly fit to whoever got the job.
it was a good chance to see the other side of Seo Jin and of course those two are good sunbae and hoobae since they are in the same company....NA PD is genius when its variety were talking.

yeah right. i also dont like the idea seunggi teaming up with halbae's. i like seojinnie's role as their luggage boy. seunggi teaming up with 4 actresses will be a new story. if seojinnie bringing sunny home brings out like "meet my 3 dads", seunggi will have, "my 4 moms"!

Older people, especially men, seem to like to keep things as they are. So, my guess is the grandpas won't want things switched up with another luggage boy. :-)

Besides, SeoJinnie owns that role now.

What can I say... Na PD is a genius. I hereby declare my eternal loyalty to Na PD, especially when he's scheming to recruit unwilling tour guides or when he's pulling the rug under someone else's feet.

And Yoon YeoJung!!! Don't decline this!!! Pwease?

LSG is one hardworking guy. He finished GFB, went overseas for his concerts, Japan and other places, turn around and do this. I love seeing him on screen, but does the guy every take a break? ;)

Yoon Yeo Jung is seriously awesome. She's very beautiful (at 66!) -- it's obvious she was quite the looker at her prime. She just has a very strong and youthful vibe for someone her age, and she's nurturing, wise, and funny to boot!
Forever the most badass mom for me (esp. since she wasn't your typical k-drama mother-in-law in K2H), even if i recently saw her as the wise teacher in QOC.

it would be so great if the halmonis were like the older actresses in Worlds Within (and Yoon Yeo Jung was one) - those gals were hilarious and Seung Gi would have to work pretty hard to keep them happy.

Yup she gave Daniel Choi one heck of a time on Worlds Within! I wouldn't mind knowing if she's like that IRL, makes for good entertainment for us but obviously not for Seung-gi, heh.

haha. i read this news at the dining table and was caught by surprise when my mother asked me why i had such a big grin on my face. yes, why do i have such a goofy smile on my face?

you know k-tv has really swallowed your life when the news of lee seunggi teaming up with na pd again rocks your world like this. (but you really don't want your mom or anyone else in the real world to know about stuff like this)

i was introduced to 1n2d only very recently and even though i'm only 69 episodes into the first season, the people in it feel pretty much like family. aah, am so happy i think i'm going to drop a tear or two.
