Watch: Park Seo Joon, Lee Seo Jin, Jung Yu Mi, Choi Woo Shik, And Youn Yuh Jung Prepare To Open “Youn’s Stay” In First Teaser

Dec 31, 2020
by C. Hon

tvN’s “Youn’s Stay” has released its first teaser!

 

Earlier this month, tvN confirmed that “Youn’s Stay” would be the new spin-off format of “Youn’s Kitchen,” which featured Youn Yuh Jung and other cast members heading to foreign countries to run a Korean restaurant.

 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the new spin-off will show Youn Yuh Jung, Lee Seo Jin, Jung Yu Mi, Park Seo Joon, and Choi Woo Shik run a hanok (traditional Korean home) as a ‘homestay’ destination in South Jeolla Province.

 

The teaser opens with the cast meeting at a private restaurant in Seoul. Producing director (PD) Na Young Suk explains that he had planned to run a new season of “Youn’s Kitchen” in the spring of 2020, but had put it off to the end of 2020 due to the pandemic, thinking that things would get better then.

 

As the situation around the world has not improved, he informs them about the new format.

Na Young Suk explains that their homestay will welcome guests who had to travel to Korea on business or for their studies and will not be able to enjoy the food and culture due to quarantine restrictions around COVID-19.

 

The teaser then moves to show the cast’s quiet life at their hanok homestay. Dressed in matching aprons, the cast eat together, prepare rooms together, and welcome guests together. As they have shown in previous seasons of “Youn’s Kitchen,” Lee Seo Jin is fluent in English after studying abroad in New York and Youn Yuh Jung knows English because she spent several years in the United States.

 

This season, they are helped by Choi Woo Shik, who grew up in Canada before pursuing his acting career in Korea.

 

As the guests enjoy their time in the hanok, the kitchen erupts into ordered chaos as Jung Yu Mi and Park Seo Joon, the chef and sous-chef of the kitchen, prepare meals while Youn Yuh Jung jokes around with the guests in the dining room.

 

At the end, Lee Seo Jin complains, “This is too hard,” and Park Seo Joon says, “I think a restaurant was easier.”

“Youn’s Stay” will premiere on January 8 at 9:10 p.m. KST.

I'm interested in this too. Although I didn't watch all of Na PD's variety shows, but I did watch Youn's Kitchen S2 and enjoyed it. So I would like to check this one out especially for the food and traditional stuff.

 

@SilverMoonTea Time really flies. I'm so shocked when the caption showed Lee Seo Jin is 50!!! :shocked: Back were the days when he looked much younger (and stronger) during the Grandpas Before Flowers' era.

Spoiler

LOL @ the grandpas' responses to Na PD's suggestion of Hot Air Balloon and Skydiving ideas.

Apologies to all, hijacking this thread to showcase Lee Seo Jin's younger looks for a moment.

Just realized everyone can speak English well, except Yoomi and Seojoon hahaha... Seems they're bonded well on this season because of that? 😂

 

So, I guess they will only cook & serving the dishes to guest? In Korean Hostel Spain, actually it was more tedious as Hae Jin was even need to clean by himself, making the beds for the guest too. 

 

But here the Hanok so pretty, I wish one day I can try to stay in traditional place like that.

Maybe Seo-jin and Woo-shik will be in charge of cleaning. Haha looking forward to clumsy intern Woo-shik. Too bad there's no cute dog here like in Summer Vacation!

 

I would love to try living in a hanok one day today. Although sleeping on the floor, my back will probably complain.

Ok, I'm done watching episode 1. Totally forgot it has premiered.

 

Lee Seo Jin was hilarious. I can imagine all the swearing went past his mind when Na PD told them where Youn's Stay would be. And I also love it when Youn Yuh Jung told him off so casually at the restaurant, "Who do you think you are to come late" :lol: and covered her mouth looking embarrassed.

 

Youn Yuh Jung was cute too that she wanted to load the QR reader app on her phone herself. I like that she's doing it on her own indicating she's willing to learn.

 

I thought I'll see Celebrity Chef Baek Jong Won again but because they had to serve palace type food so they learnt it from a fine dining chef instead. Hmm, wonder where this chef's restaurant is. Should go visit in the future. ♥

 

The amount of labour put into making the beef patte was way too much. And kudos to Park Seo Joon taking up the challenge. After learning the dish, he went home and practice continuously for 3 days. Respect the professionalism. Obviously there's pressure to do well - it's on TV and people are eating this.

@Tofu Let's marry Park Seo Joon...a man who can cook is ♥

 

I'm actually quite shocked that it has been 3 years since season 2's Youn's Kitchen. It felt like I've only seen it less than 2 years ago.

 

Episode 1 is just settling in so we haven't seen any huge disaster yet. Woo Shik is, at the moment, doing well with picking up the guests, introducing the hanok and conversing well with the guests in English. Much more fluently and naturally than Seo Jin.

 

I totally relate to him about "thinking in X language and having to translate in the head first before speaking it" because it is what I do too. The other night I was even randomly having Korean conversation in my head when I imagined going back to Korea for a trip with family, ha ha ha ... :BulbaConfused:

The opening sentence somehow make me a bit teary, as they're sorry for giving us show about excursions when we already being stay at home. And they're hoping covid will stop and we all can enjoy the spring. I already think the show going to be lovely, as they're so thoughtful. 

 

ROFL at the Lee Seo Jin deciding the price, when he want to charge higher for couple. Everyone said do you hate a couple ? :eeeee:

 

The place quite huge, no wonder Wooshik also mentioned if anyone will get lost.

The food so aesthetically pleasing too, I think Jang Geum will be proud! Haha... 

Your oppa PSJ looks good while cooking @Tofu 😂

 

Intern work evaluation, he's not ready yet bwahaha.... 

 

LSJ grinding the coffee with dimples is so worth it 😂

Lol Seo Jinnie taking care of Woo Shik like his son sometimes, when he reminding him to wear his uniform. SJ also taking care of Yoo Mi and help rolling her sleeves. 
 

And the bear miniature for the logo is so cute. Last season was rabbit.

When I saw where the 3 main guest hanok are, the first thing I thought of was: *Insert swear word F*! That's a LOT of walking uphill for whoever is carrying the luggages! And pleaseeee tell me they don't have to clean the guest house! I don't think they will because that's too much work and I remember I read/heard the introduction saying the guests are only staying one night...?

I think they use bear this time is because there are bears at that area (as shown in the beginning).

Yes to marrying Park Seo Jun, @mademoiselle! There is very little convincing that he needs to do for me to agreed to that. :laugh:

 

I haven't watched the episode yet (been so busy) but from the clips, it's always nice to hear Choi Woo Shik speak in English. His family lives in Canada, they moved there when he was younger.

@SilverMoonTea They are serving Royal Palace style food (according to the C-sub) so it is fine dining kind of food this time, so yes, more high class. I wonder normally how much that beef dish would cost because that is a lot of labour.

The foods they served are like fine dining, small portions and well presented.

That beef patties, takes a long time to prepare. 
I rather pay to eat then to make, LOL

 

Was surprise Woo Sik can speaks good English. They assigned him to the correct job.

But, I pity him. The amount of walking he has to do, sending guest to their designated rooms, deliver meals, etc

is indeed tiring.

Actually Park Seo Joon English also seems not too bad. At least he can answer question from the Belgium & Denmark couple that showed in Youn's Kitchen 2. They were so impressed by his 4.4m IG followers lols.

 

I actually quite excited with this Youn's Stay, more than any other drama that I follow now.. haha... it's so relaxing to watch the food show with beautiful hanok as background. And I like all the cast members too. Can't wait!
