According to QUARTZY, when one of the biggest K-Pop stars gets married, withdraws from the limelight, people in the world are naturally curious.

In the first episode, Hyo-ri said to her husband, “They must have been curious about this house, right? While we’re at it, we can satisfy what they were curious about. Maybe people will stop ringing our bell after this.”

But no, they won’t, Lee Hyo-ri.

The concept of this television show is really basic and common. A famous star that has gained modern relevance with a reality TV show, and the end of the product is like an American reality show. This show revealed its charm with the beautiful setting and relatable characters, including Korea’s famous celebrities as their guests.
