Kids will be kids on Youths Over Flowers

Both the casts of Na PD’s next travel variety show Youths Over Flowers have returned from their trips, looking every bit the eager tourists, decked out in clothes from the countries they just visited. I wish I could say they also looked cool while doing so, but that would be lying. I know, who watches variety shows to see people looking cool? Still, I might pay someone not to see Chilbongie wearing those pants ever again. Upon returning with Yoo Yeon-seok, Sohn Ho-joon, and Baro, Answer Me 1994’s PD Shin Won-ho gave a short interview about going along on the trip, the boys, and his return to Na PD’s team and variety.

The somewhat unconventional (and totally sneaky) format of this next installment of the Over Flowers variety franchise has two casts on two entirely separate trips — the fortysomething musician team of Yoon Sang, Yoo Hee-yeol, and Lee Juck who went to Peru and returned recently, and then the Answer Me boys who just returned from Laos on July 14. The Peru cast was surprised with a trip the day of their departure, after which Na PD repeatedly told the press there would be no more cast members, and then the Laos cast was conned into getting on a plane last week without notice. Hee.

PD Shin Won-ho, director of the Answer Me franchise, was invited to go along on the Laos trip, which sparked a lot of questions about his possible return to variety. (He’s part of the old crew who all worked together on 1 Night 2 Days, including writer Lee Woo-jung.) Shin: “I only went to play a small role as a helper. Na PD and PD Shin Hyo-jung told me to go so I went. I was practically just a messenger. I went because these guys are new to variety and we were worried that they would be awkward, but that turned out to be an undue worry. I ended up being luggage.”

About the boys: “Kids are definitely kids. They had overwhelming energy… It was really different seeing these guys in variety and not as actors. When we were doing the drama, I thought they were quite mature. But now that they’ve gotten out of those characters’ clothes and returned to their true selves, they’re really young kids. It was really different from Grandpas Over Flowers, and the staff said so too. The physical intensity was different, enough so that the staff struggled.”

They sound like the adorable Energizer Bunny Trio, and it makes me even more curious for how the two groups of “youths” will compare. And even if he was just luggage, it’s cute that PD Shin Won-ho went with them, just because Na PD came by his set for a cameo too. Shin: “It was a fun trip for me too… Truthfully I can’t deny my variety roots.” PD Shin is still planning his next project, likely for sometime next year.

Youths Over Flowers will air in August.

:-) :-) I can't get over the touristy outfits they had.

Come on, did any Beanies meet any of the crew at all?

Not to mention I am sure those 3 young guys must be walking really fast. Think of the poor VJs struggling along.

I am hitting myself over the head and in my stomach - I just came back from Laos last week!! My Chilbongie!!!! At least I will be eagerly awaiting the episodes with the boys ;)

To be fair I actually like Yoo Yeon-seok's outfit the most. And I got myself one of those I-got-ripped-off tourist pants too. Haha!

awww, how classy.

does those fans' happiness and excitement of seeing their favourite returning on the small screen make you frown, your lips turned downward and your heart filled with bitterness, irrationality and unhappiness? Awww, come here bb, *pats pats* and *voldemort hugs you*.

I am sorry I can't do anything to help you with it as you'll be seeing more of these for a few more months to come :'( Denali fighting!

There is no need to worry about me, dear. Thank you for your concern, though.

The realization that plenty of kids need to leave the very same comments regarding a celeb boiling down to "o.m.g. he is so cute/hot/perfect for me/the man of my dreams" on this website (and others) has struck me long ago. It is quite an odd attitude and I'd say "stupid" if it weren't so judgmental. If someone has already written your point of view or thoughts, what is the point of repeating the same stuff time and time again? What's the added bonus? None. So yes, my bad that I prefer quality over quantity.

You're welcome. Well that's the least I could offer.

The last time I checked, when a fan is excited and happy over his/her favourite's news, there is no rule or guidelines to be followed when he/she wanted to leave reaction comments.

I mean wouldn't it be absurd for that fan to pause as he/she is about to leave a comment and muse to him/herself this -

"Hmm, does my comment boil down the awesomeness of my favourite and how excited I am over it? Oh, yes it is. Now, should I look around to see if other comment has stated it? Oh, there is one. Hmm... that should be enough because there should only be one comment to represent all of the other fans' feelings and no, that is not weird at all."

"If I decide to still leave the comment to express my excitement and adoration because I really feel like doing it, it will be considered as "stupid" by judgemental people, or "odd" by judgemental people who have problems admitting that they are judgmental. And the insult of being a circus afterwards would be justified by these people who have problems sitting down in their life caused by the sticks shoved up their bottoms."

"Also, when writing my reaction comment, I should consider on what point would it brought up and whether it has added bonus. Because ~quality~ (lol, how one measure the ~quality~ of excited fans' reactions comments is of another exciting story) over quantity is preferred in fans' reactions comments writing."

What is fun, no?

Excuse you, Denali.. who are you to tell people what to do or what not to do? Its a fandom anyway, and we're not attacking anyone..why bother? :)

And how is a provocative comment like yours any better? What is the point of ridiculing people's enthusiasm over news of one of their favorite celebrities when you can actually be contributing something "qualitative" to the comments? And funny how you assume everyone leaving such comments are just "kids" because God forbid that adults try express sentiments of the excited variety.

I think the fact that they (Reply group) were kidnapped partly explains the fashion choices that some were commenting about. It looks to me like they stopped at the first place they could after the airport to buy the most weather appropriate pieces - style be damned. But that arrival outfit has NaPD written all over it. It's no coincidence the Peru group came home dressed like they just herded llamas. Oh and that NaPD airport pic? He totally looks like he was the porter. Hahahaha! :)

Sometimes you just have to go for it – style be damned! –, that's the whole fun! Makes for much better memories. :-D

i hope they checked if it was okay with the culture to wear said clothes.

in some cultures, the clothes are worn by everyone on a daily basis and can also be worn by tourists if they want to, but in some cultures these clothes have a deep meaning and are not meant to be worn as a 'costume', for a lack of a better word (at the moment)

Those clothes are fine- they're not fancy dress. They're kind of tourist version of everyday wear in SE Asia. Every market in Laos/Cambodia/Thailand sells their own version and locals don't really wear them but they're not sacred.
