Oddball Jang Geun Seok Joins Sunbaes in Variety Show Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village

Doing the variety show circuit in K-ent is par for the course when promoting dramas but most are just one episode guest starring gigs. Less frequent but more invaluable is when an actor or actress will get a popularity resurgence after becoming a variety show regular whether it’s of the talking, living together, or doing something difficult in a foreign place. Who can forget Lee Seo Jin‘s first outing as the luggage boy in Grandpas Over Flowers, whereas Lee Seung Gi is such a variety veteran it wasn’t nearly as fresh and unusual to see his turn in Noonas Over Flowers.

Jang Geun Seok has been focusing his entertainment career overseas for the last few years, in terms of K-ent he’s only done two under the radar dramas in Love Rain and Bel Ami (Pretty Boy). That’s why it’s such a shocker for me to hear that he’s joined the cast of Na PD‘s new variety show Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village, a more remote and heartier cousin to the original incarnation with Seo Jin lugging Taecyeon around the countryside cooking. Also in the Fishing Village cast is Cha Seung Won, forever a variety standout since his Family Outing days, and veteran actor Yoo Hae Jin. This line up, not to mention shipping them out to a far off island to fend for themselves, is so chock for strange dialogue and behavior I’m totally dying to check it out.

  1. A show like this depends on the cast really since there isn’t much going on. 3 Meals a Day was seriously boring, though it was supposed to be. This could be better since it seems a bit more difficult than what Seo Jin endured.

    CSW looks good.. why does JGS looks… puffy?

    • He needs a proper fringe,IMHO. You can tell from he pictures that he looks the best when his forehead is covered with a hat.

  2. Who cares JKS is puffy? 🙂 Actually he is some kind of allergic to cold and explained on the pressconferrence his problem. Even told his eels not to watch. Well, no way!

  3. I wonder if any subbing group would pick this project up. Someone had subbed the 3 Meals a day eps with Taecyeon in it. Maybe a jang geun seok fan will do it?
