Park Hyung-shik joins Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village
The second season of Na PD’s cooking variety show Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village is getting ready to set sail for Manjae Island in early September, and this new season will kick off with a possible new member in Park Hyung-shik (High Society). Original cast members Cha Seung-won (Hwajeong) and Yoo Hae-jin (Veteran) will return, of course, but maknae Sohn Ho-joon is currently shooting his SBS drama Mrs. Cop and won’t be able to participate until the drama is over.
Park Hyung-shik will be taking his place, though producers released a wave of statements saying that he wasn’t going to be replacing Sohn Ho-joon. They just needed another cast member for the early part of the series, because Sohn can’t leave the drama set for long weekends (the show shoots every few weeks for a few days at a time, and Fishing Village has the added boat travel time to get to and from the remote island). It’s still undecided whether Park Hyung-shik will become a regular member, or if he’ll just have an extended guest appearance.
I haven’t seen much of Park Hyung-shik’s other variety appearances, but he seems to have a bright image from Real Men and Rules of the Jungle. I’m pretty sure they just needed someone for Chajumma to boss around as an assistant chef anyway, because Sohn Ho-joon’s role on the show is really just to eat well, love the animals, and be the sweet guy who does whatever Chajumma asks of him. Hopefully his drama schedule will free up before too much of Fishing Village gets shot.
Season 2 starts shooting September 5 with Cha Seung-won, Yoo Hae-jin, and Park Hyung-shik, and Sohn Ho-joon will join them in October once Mrs. Cop ends. Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village will premiere sometime in October.
