Nam Joo-hyuk joins new season of Three Meals a Day

The cast lineup has been finalized for the new season of tvN’s hit variety show Three Meals a Day, which will be returning in July for its fifth installment. Though they won’t be returning to Manjae Island, Na PD did recruit the Fishing Village cast for the new season, and Cha Seung-won (Hwajeong) and Sohn Ho-joon (Mrs. Cop) have signed on to return. Sadly, Yoo Hae-jin won’t be able to join them due to scheduling conflicts, so Nam Joo-hyuk (Cheese in the Trap) has been added as the newest cast member. It’s a little like Chajumma’s Adventures in Babysitting, but maybe he needs new challenges since cooking comes so easily to him.

Three Meals a Day takes a group of actors and sticks them in a remote location without the comforts of a modern kitchen, and their only requirement is to cook three meals a day. Each season included a work component as well—on the farm that meant growing their own vegetables, and on the island it meant catching their own fish. The island seasons had the added catch-fish-or-starve stakes built into the premise, which made for a more entertaining narrative beyond the usual hijinks.

For the new cast’s sake, I hope they’re not being shipped off to a new island, because Yoo Hae-jin was the fisherman who always brought home the catch of the day. I just don’t see Ho-joonie filling those shoes well enough to keep them from going hungry. I don’t know that new maknae Nam Joo-hyuk will be any more useful, but at least he’s had some experience on variety shows; he was funny and mischievous on JTBC’s I’m Going to School, so even if he’s useless in the kitchen he’ll probably be entertaining. In fact, I worry much less about him doing a variety show than I do about his acting.

PD Na Young-seok will be at the helm alongside PD Lee Jin-ju (Youths Over Flowers in Africa), and the location of the new season has yet to be announced. Three Meals a Day will return on July 1, and airs Friday nights on tvN.

Hi!
I am a long time reader of your recaps (i live for them really) but I have had almost zero luck in finding sites with eng subs for this show. I was hoping you could recap it..as I would love to follow it. I hope it's not too much of a bother though. Thanks!

Yayy!! I'm looking forward to seeing the animals! Especially Bul and Sanchae! And I hope Yoo Hae-jin could drop by in one or two eps.

More like 3MAD YG Entertainment edition. Sohn Ho-joon would likely join YG Entertainment soon after his contract with MBK ends this month.

His food in YOF Africa was remarkable

oh man, I wish KangNam would appear as a guest to rile up Nam Joo Hyuk. The two of them were like Tom & Jerry in the "I'm Going to School" show. Their rivalry/shenanigans were hilarious.
& I'm pretty sure Cha Seung Won would get irate over them play-fighting. (which I would love to see) :D

SUPER sad YooHaeJin won't be appearing. but maybe he could show up every now & then to check on his 마누라 & son? hehe catch them a few fish here & there? LOL

Dang I was hoping for Ahn Jae Hyun after seeing him on NJTTW. Maybe he can be one of the guests?

And if Yoo Hae Jin isn't there, perhaps Na PD can put them on a farm instead of another island? I want to see Chajumma whipping up more delicious meals with the plentiful supply of veggies in the farm.
