Season 3 of ‘Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village’ to air next month

September 19, 2016

SEOUL, Sept. 19 (Yonhap) — Season three of the reality TV cooking show “Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village” will hit the air next month with actor Lee Seo-jin and two new faces among the main cast, its producer said.

The fishing village series is a spinoff of “Three Meals a Day,” a cooking variety show that was broadcast on the cable channel tvN from October 2014 to September 2015. It features celebrities stranded in a rural area for three days, preparing three meals a day with whatever food they encounter.

The much anticipated first episode of the upcoming season will premiere on Oct. 14 at 9:15 p.m., the channel said Saturday.

Unlike the previous two seasons set on Manjae Island off the southwest coast, the new season will be filmed on a new island, it said, without giving the name of the location.

Joining Lee, a familiar member from the show’s rural village series, will be fellow actors Eric Mun and Yoon Kyun-sang.

Mun from boy band “Shinhwa” has been riding a huge wave of popularity after playing the lead in drama series “Oh Hae-young Again.”

“Eric is just right for this show since one of his hobbies is fishing,” said Na Young-seok, the show’s producer. “Moreover, Lee Seo-jin and Eric have worked together in a drama before.”.

Yoon has just come off the hit SBS drama series “Doctors.”

“He is a strong and cheerful man. Being the youngest of the three, he will get along well with his seniors,” the producer said.

Previously in an interview, Yoon had shown interest in participating in Na’s variety show.

The preview of the new season of “Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village” was revealed during the last episode of season two on Friday.
