Youn’s Kitchen: How I Ended Up in a Korean TV Show

Something very unusual happened today. My husband and I walked from Icod de los Vinos to Garachico. Thirsty after two hours of walking, we looked for a refreshment and suddenly we were participating in a Korean reality TV show. 

The weather was warm and nice today and my husband and I decided to take a long walk. The surroundings of Icod de los Vinos is still new for us and we decided that Garachico, a charming small town by the sea about 14 km away would be a good target. If I had known that this walk would bring me direct into a TV reality show, I would have dressed up like a star LOL. But now you will just see ordinary me drinking wine and eating some delicious Korean food in a picturesque Canarian street. Season 2 of the Korean TV show Youn’s Kitchen opens in January 2018 starring Yoon Yeo Jung, Lee Seo Jin, Jung Yoo Mi, and Park Seo Joon.

  1. Thank you for the pictures! But I believe the show is keeping the location a secret for now since they’re still shooting. I think it’d be better if you don’t mention the location for now 🙈 (Because once fans know, they’d gather at the restaurant and the crew’s identities as a celebrities will be exposed, which kinda doesn’t go with the idea of the show) thank you very much ❤️

    • Thanks for your kind reply and concern. We just stumbled upon the restaurant by accident and I believe it’s hidden well enough. We informed that we would publish our surprising experience and they invited us to take some photos. Reality shows are always open for unexpected twists and if some devoted fans really find the place, it would probably be a part of the show 😊 All the best!

    • Youn’s Kitchen team chose a hard to reach location, it is an island in the Atlantic Ocean! And I don’t think people in Garachico are into korean shows. Die hard fans will have to spend a lot of money before reaching the location.

  2. They are very famous actors in Korea!!! Top star!!!!!

    I am a big fan of Park Seo Jun!!. envy you.

    I bless your luck.

    It is a program scheduled to be broadcast in Korea next January.

    I am looking forward to you appearing on the TV SHOW

  10. Hi, I saw your blog post before seeing the show, and I just wanted to let you know that you will be in the third episode. At least you appear in the promo for episode 3 at the end of episode 2.

    I though you might want to know it!

  11. In south korea, we are watching you now!!!!!!!!!! They are really popular actors

    I hope you the best!
    I know it may sound like a silly question, or an unimportant question, but maybe you could give me your opinion about their heights? Lee Seo Jin 1,78 and Park Seo Joon 1,85 do you think these are real heights or they are shorts? I’m just a fan and is a really important think to me because I’m 1,58 and just…. I don’t know I love to know if they are really that height on your think they are short, because in some photos I see they and they don’t look that tall and I feel like they lie about it and maybe they are 3-4 cm shorter… I know can be hard to answer but well I hope you can give me a idea about it, thanks and again good luck in your travels and enjoy it, I go be here from now because I really enjoy ur blog.

    • Hola Marta, thanks for visiting my blog. I am still learning Spanish myself, your English is fine. That was an accident meeting and was a fun way to end our almost 2-hour walk. They are tall guys for me, because I am short 😉
