Seo-jin gets cookin’ for Grandpas Over Flowers in Spain

Reminding us that the show is only a few days from its premiere, we have new teasers and a poster out for tvN’s upcoming reality-variety show Grandpas Over Flowers: The Spain Trip. (I’m not totally certain how they’re counting “seasons” of this show with all the various trips and spin-offs going on — some places call this Season 2, having counted the France and Taiwan trips as two halves of one season, and others count this as Season 3. So we may just end up calling it Grandpas Over Flowers in Spain, or Grandpas in Spain to be concise about it. )

Aside from being just cute, the poster above makes me laugh because Lee Seo-jin (aka Seojinnie, aka Seo Genie) has added a new title among the many he has accrued while being the grandpas’ resident luggage boy, interpreter, chauffeur, tour guide, messenger, and more. Above his head, the show (or more to the point, Na PD) has written: Errand boy? Cooking king?

That point gets reiterated in the teasers below, where Seo-jin first heads out amidst gorgeous scenery in Barcelona, with pretty music scoring the moment, and gets asked what he’s doing. A half-grumpy “Going to cook” is all he says, and off he goes carrying supplies.

In the teaser after that, we have Seo-jin in the kitchen with hungry halbaes getting crankier by the minute as he runs around trying to fulfill their menu requests before they tear his head off. Il-sub halbae requests kimchi jjigae (“with lots of pork belly!”) and then waits impatiently by while Seo-jin gets cooking — and don’t you love the way Na PD hovers, all pesky-like? Geun-hyung halbae chimes in that it’s been all of ten whole minutes — what’s taking so long? The show sneaks in an Emergency Couple nod (way to cross-promote, tvN), calling this “Seo-jin’s Emergency Kitchen,” with heart rate monitor beeping away as Seo-jin barks orders like a surgeon demanding implements. In this case that translates to “Soju! Gimme soju, hurry! Boil the kimchi jjigae! Fry the bacon!” Finally he sits down at the table for the verdict, and thankfully it’s deemed tasty. Phew. Dodged that bullet.

The Spain edition of Grandpas Over Flowers kicks off this Friday on tvN.

yeah, i'm guessing that's why he is still single.
i totally hope they get married back then, they were so in love with each other. i remember him guesting on her show n serenade song for her it was so cute.
their breakup was totally kdrama. i wonder if his mom actually did the classic evil mother n tell her to stay away from her son, give her money throw water in her face thing... (was what i imagined back then omg)

OMG That 2nd teaser cracked me up so much.

The throwaway "nomu mashitta(?)" at the end was such a contrast from the whole ER-Kitchen thing.

LOL LOL LOL they dressed Seojinnie in a Barcelona 'keeper's kit.' How appropriate for him, since he's trying to keep his team in his line of sight. :P

P.S. Manchester United all the way!!! GO YOU REDS!!!

Wow, this show has really talented editors, to compare the kitchen to the emergency room is creative and makes the whole thing so much funnier!

It really is all about the editing, isn't it?

And the music is genius too. Whoever does that part of this show has such fantastic range. The thing I'd wish someone would do is set up an online store and sell the soundtrack for each episode. I've often thought that I'd love to buy the music, but don't have the time to track it all down.

At first I'm just scrolling with no intention to comment
and then I saw yours and I can't help myself.
YES! PLEASE! Grandpas over flowers OST. Will definitely want one!

I too have realized that the songs they used in grandpas are soooo good, wide variety and relate to the situation shown nicely and it felt sooo global.

The one in charge of the music sure deserves two thumbs up! (And of course other staff too)

This show is simply perfection. Very humane and warm. I just hope this will not end. Not so soon :"(

I am just falling in love with Seo-jinnie. Like the slow kind of love where all these little things about him adds up one by one until my heart is bursting from fondness and deep-seated love. Oppa....if I weren't getting married so soon, I would have loved to marry you. Haha.

Oh yayyy this show is finally back! My Korean friend and I were just discussing this today, and she said that while lee Seunggi lost quite a lot of popularity in Korea because he appeared so hapless in the first few episodes, lee seojin gained a tremendous amount of popularity because of this show. I have to agree too that I like lee seojin much better than I used to after watching GOF!

Oh no, I'm sad to hear that seungi was not well received :( I think it was harder for him to get close to the noonas and this "discomfort" showed on screen sometimes.
