Three Meals a Day Korean Variety Program
Three Meals a Day
Korean title: 삼시세끼
tvN, ongoing

Season 1: October 17, 2014 – December 26, 2014
Fishing Village Season: January 23, 2015 – March 20, 2015
Season 2: May 15, 2015 – present

Variety hitmaker PD Na Young-seok makes good on his promise to make a cooking show with Lee Seo-jin (of Grandpas Over Flowers) by sticking the city boy on a farm where he has to grow his own organic food and then cook it. All he has to do is cook and eat three meals a day. That's it. Really.

The Cast of Three Meals a Day:
In the Fishing Village season, actors Cha Seung-won, Yoo Hae-jin, and Sohn Ho-joon are stranded on an island where the stakes are more dire: No fish means no dinner. The upside: They have world-class chef Chajumma, who can whip up anything you ask of him.

You know, Three Meals a Day has only been off the air for a few weeks (while Na PD was busy running around China with the 1N2D boys), but I’ve missed it a little. I guess I’ve just gotten used to the low-key everyday farm hijinks. I’m even more excited that this next season is... More »

Thing vs. Thing: Seojinnie vs. Chajumma

girlfriday: I can’t really imagine a context in which you’d compare Lee Seo-jin and Cha Seung-won as actors, since they’re such different types. But as variety personas on Na PD’s shows (Three Meals a Day), sometimes it feels like there’s a meta narrative of them competing against each other, even though they’ve never even been... More »
