Grandpas Over Flowers’ Actress Special heads to Croatia
News is out for the next season of Grandpas Over Flowers, which kicked off its run earlier this year by taking its four halbaes to France, and then to Taiwan. Now the tvN show has announced that the actress version has decided on Croatia as their destination. (The show doesn’t quite have a solid title yet; it’s being called the actress version of Grandpas Over Flowers, but that’s not quite applicable this time around, for obvious reasons. Its other working title is Backpacking Trip Round 2: Actress Special, which you can see lacks a certain punch.)
The actresses who’ve signed on are (going clockwise from upper left in the photo) Yoon Yeo-jung (Boomerang Family, Queen of the Classroom), Kim Ja-ok (Ojakkyo Brothers), Lee Mi-yeon (Merchant Kim Man-deok), and Kim Hee-ae (A Wife’s Credential). And, of course, we can’t forget Luggage Boy Lee Seung-gi, who is probably going to be nothing like Lee Seo-jin was in the first season but will hopefully be just as awesome to watch, given his hilariously heo-dang streak of messing things up at the last moment. Or sometimes in the first moment. He’s unpredictable that way.
Na PD stated that after traveling to Western Europe with the halbaes, he wanted to explore a different appeal by heading to Eastern Europe this time. With Croatia not being well-known to Korean audiences, he felt it would be a solid choice for the actresses with its “exotic flavor, beautiful natural scenery, and diverse cultural legacy.” It certainly isn’t an expected pick, and I’m curious to see how they’ll navigate. The choice also ups the ante for this round, considering that France and Switzerland were navigable in English, they had a luggage boy fluent in English, and one halbae even managed passable German on his own. And in Taiwan, they got by with English, a tech-savvy guest guide (Sunny), and their knowledge of hanja characters. Croatia, on the other hand… is throwing them all off the deep end. This oughtta be good.
The Actress Special of Grandpas Over Flowers will depart on their trip in early November. The show will then air later in the month.
