Na PD baits Lee Seo-jin to headline new variety show

girlfriday: Ooh, Na PD (Na Young-seok) is doing a new show! Okay, so technically he’s always doing a new show with Grandpas Over Flowers leading to Noonas and Youths and so forth, but apparently he’s switching gears with his next variety program and stepping away from the Over Flowers theme.

javabeans: Is it really switching gears, though, when he’s casting (possibly) Lee Seo-jin, aka Seo Genie, aka Seojinnie, and making it another outdoor variety show while courting other members as well? Is this really just 1 Night, 2 Days, 3 Luggage Boys?

girlfriday: Knowing Na PD, it’s entirely possible he’s lying through his teeth on purpose, just so he can trick Seojinnie into doing Cranky Oppas Over Flowers.

javabeans: Or is he making good on his joke-threat and actually planning King of Cooking where every episode Seo-jin fails?

girlfriday: That would be awesome. I guess the real genius is that he knows he can just stick Seojinnie in front of a camera and get something good, as long as there’s complaining involved.

javabeans: I love that he was actually surprised how good Seo-jin was in the first Grandpas Over Flowers, and now he just doesn’t want to let him go. Concept is irrelevant! Get Seo-jin! He knows gold when he sees it.

girlfriday: Seriously.

javabeans: It’s the birth of a new creator-muse power duo. You know, Woody Allen had Diane Keaton, Scorcese had DeNiro, Tim Burton has Johnny Depp…

girlfriday: And now Na PD has Seojinnie! Really, their bromance makes me genuinely happy, I don’t know why. Because it’s begrudging, maybe?

javabeans: There’s an added layer because Seo-jin is older and Na PD totally regards him as this older brother, and so it’s respect mixed with annoyance and pestering.

girlfriday: I also think Na PD isn’t often outsmarted by his stars, but Seo-jin is quick and it makes for a more balanced (and hilariously contentious) relationship.

javabeans: Taken at face value I can see how this untitled, undescribed variety show could be great, but when has Na PD ever announced something and then given us that? I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop.

girlfriday: Yeah all we know so far is that it’s an outdoor variety show (meaning just that it’s not shot in a studio), it’s planning to air after Youths Over Flowers in mid-October, and they’re looking into other cast members, maybe. Way to be vague.

javabeans: I’m pretty sure suffering is a given.

girlfriday: Na PD wouldn’t have it any other way.

Oh my. Lee Seung Gi: the man who cooks chicken WRAPPED IN CLINGFILM.

I loved how tense the 1N2D boys got whenever Seung Gi stepped up for the cooking, as if to say, "There, there, Seung Gi. Now be a good boy and go play in the corner." Heh, it would be fun to see Seo Jin's wall of patience being broken down.

What I'd like to see is Outdoor King of Cooking. But not the glamping-ppl type of outdoor adventure. More like the you have to catch it, clean it and cook it kind of show. A cold and grubby Seo Jin would be a crabby Seo Jin who wants payback.

I'd give good money to see a show where Seojinie needs to do things like gather seafood on a freedive with the haenyo on Jeju (or the cast goes hungry). It would be hilarious to watch him try to maintain his image while digging out fish guts. I gotta believe he's the type that'd try to do it with flair.

In the end he'd have every woman in S. Korea wanting to wrestle him away from NaPD.

The announcement + your commentary just made me giggle nonstop while reading this bit of news.

When is someone going to troll Na PD though? I want his staff to "kidnap" him and send him as a luggage boy to a group of noona actresses.

Please. T^T

please cast Lee Juck!!! Can you imagine the king of complaints Seo Genie and the stubborn but really smart Lee Juck joining forces to trick Na PD? It wold be an epic battle ... I know that since Youth Over Flowers is still airing it would be impossible but a girl can dream since seems like the members will be around 30 - 40's just like Seo Jin T_T
Hee Yeol was the star of Youths but he's just too cute and adorable and good person ( & + ) ...... and I want waaaaaaaar ! And Juck and Seo Jin can make it happen .... variety gods , please .... chebal! T_T

I will follow those dimples anywhere. Oh, and Na PD.

"Outdoors" is the concept? What, is he gonna make Seojinnie travel through 4 seasons/countries in 1 week? Or re-enact the summer and winter Olympic games in different climates? Or will it be based in S Korea for a change?

(actually can't believe Seo-jin would keep coming back for more like this!)

Looking forward to seeing who his companions-in-suffering are... muahaha

Praying hard that Seo Jinnie would really appear on variety once again.. maybe cast seunggi, yoo hee yeol. I bet few of them would be a great combination.

Outdoor variety... I think it would be something interesting.. Smart PD...
