Grandpas spin-off named Noonas Over Flowers: Seung-gi-ya, Run Away

Okay, the second part isn’t an official subtitle, but it IS the running joke among the production crew, who according to Na PD refers to “Seung-gi-ya, Run Away” as a tongue-in-cheek name for Noonas Over Flowers, the follow-up to tvN’s hit travel variety series Grandpas Over Flowers. Hee. It’s nice to know we’re all simpatico on this one, because that’s pretty much what WE all thought when the show was announced, wasn’t it?

Na PD explained that they’d tossed around other potential titles using “grandmas” or “mothers,” but felt “noonas” was a more comfortable, fitting term. And it so, so is — it’s more appropriate given that Lee Mi-yeon (42) and Kim Hee-ae (46) are too young to be grandmas, and adds a dash of cheeky fun for the older actresses, Kim Ja-ok (62) and Yoon Yeo-jung (66).

Na PD described feeling some nerves about going on a ten-day-long trip to Croatia with the noona crew, admitting that he hasn’t actually worked with a lot of actresses before. Which is one of those facts that is totally surprising until you think back to his his variety history (much of it being the yeaaaars he spent working on 1 Night 2 Days). “This is the first time I’m working with a female cast for this long a period,” he added. “I generally can feel how to approach male cast members, but this is completely different. To be honest I’m a little scared about how I should do things.”

To which I say, muahaha. After all the discomfort and suffering he heaps on his casts, it’s about time the shoe was on the other foot, isn’t it? And if 1N2D’s Actress Special was any indication of how terribly (by which I mean awesomely) awkward and fidgety he gets around actresses, this should be entertaining.

On the other hand, Na PD also said, “You will be able to find the fun in watching Lee Seung-gi’s flustered reactions to the noonas’ emotions that he cannot understand.” Double muahaha. The photo up top shows the cast of both Grandpas and Noonas, and doesn’t Seung-gi just look like he’s pretending he’s not there? (If I can’t see them, they can’t see me…)

Noonas Over Flowers will be leaving for Croatia on October 31, and the show will premiere in mid- to late November.

I am looking forward to see some bonding between Seunggi and Na PD due to shared awkwardness. But knowing Na PD, the more miserable he gets the more he'll try to take it out on Seunggi...

I definitely think you shouldn't worry about subbed videos :) The Airens (pretty sure that's how it's spelled) would take care of it within a day or even a few hours I think. SG has so many dedicated fans so this one I'm sure would get subbed as soon as it's uploaded :)

Gah loving all the news regarding this. It's gonna be so much fun but I'm tired of saying I can't wait so I won't say it this time :P

Lmao on the idea of Na PD getting awkward. Maybe Seung gi and his can share awkward looks and have secret how-to-deal-with-awkward-situations conversations? Or maybe he'll just throw Seung gi in the lions den to deal with it himself. Which would be more like him.

SG definitely looks like he's trying to pretend his presence is ghost like lol. And did anyone notice the note book and pencil case?!? Lmfao if that is seung gi's I might fly there and pinch his cheeks cz that's just so cute.

That pic makes me wonder what it'd be like if the two casts took a trip together (as well as what's the dealio with Lee Soon Jae's hair)?

Maybe that's how Lee Soon-jae's hair is if it's not usually permed with his drama-/movie-role...

Well, well, we will see...

Let's not forget Seung Gi has a female boss and a female teacher, and I don't know how many female staff whom he works with day in and day out. Not to mention all those adoring/crazy/emotional/hysterical female fans greeting him every step of the way.

He's probably still gathering intel...before he decides to take charge or submit.

Either way, this is going to be so goooood!

awesomeness!!! I've been on a 1N2D good ole' days when the whole gang were together (Seung Gi, Na PD, MC Mong Kim C, Ji Won, Ho Dong, Su Guen & the big fluffy dog) withdrawal for oh? 3 years already so any semblance of those variety gold days is a reason to do a little dance & cheer. Plus I luv puppy. Alot.
Anticipating adorbs puppy in a foreign land with sunbaes who are all women while being filmed & ordered around by evil genius hyung will make up for all those empty variety gold years...

Actually, LSG and the noonas should form an alliance to turn the working title into: "Na PD...run away!"
