Yoo Jae-suk: Latest News and His Upcoming Projects


Yoo Jae-suk’s New variety show?

On September 18, representatives from SBS confirmed to the medias that a new outdoor variety program was currently being planned. Ex-PD of Running Man, Jang Chul-Min and Yoo Jae-suk will be working together once again for this pilot program. The PD and staffs were currently gathering other cast members of the program.

On October 23rd, SBS finally revealed that the name of this show is called Village Survival, the Eight. It came along with a teaser that shows Yoo Jae-suk along with the other cast member including BLACKPINK’s Jennie, Im Soo-Hyang, Son Dam-Bi, Kang Ki-Young, Song Kang, Kim Sang-Ho, Yang Se-Hyung, and Jang Do-Yeon. Take a look at the clip here!

The producers of this show remained very secretive about this program before it was aired. The reason is because on the first day of filming, all of the cast members came and was told that they were going to have an easy day of filming in a peaceful environment. However, the casts were soon surprised to see that the village they were visiting was not a “enchanting autumn village” after all, instead, it is a “mystery chase village,” and that the show would showcased the ability of their deduction skill as well as their creativity.

The producers explained the new program as a “24-hour countryside mystery thriller variety” show, with the cast members facing an unexpected twist as they struggle to figure out the village’s secret. This show was aired last Friday,  November 9 at 11:20 p.m. KST.

The main idea of this program is to bridge the gap between generations, with a batch of ‘kids these days’ making videos for the ‘adults these days’ to watch. Basically, Yoo Jae Suk will lead the older generation, and Jennie will represent the current generation. It looks like Yoo Jae-suk will have a lot of work together with Jennie. Let’s anticipate their chemistry!
