Disney+ seeks to turn the tide with Yoo Jae-suk variety show

Walt Disney Co. Korea is set to release its second Korean original variety show,

“The Zone: Survival Mission,” on Sept. 8.

Starring comedian Yoo Jae-suk alongside actors Lee Kwang-soo and Kwon

Yuri, who is also a member of K-pop girl group Girl’s Generation, the upcoming

series seeks to entertain with a format not widely used in Korean variety shows.

While many survival programs have adapted escape room-style games, “The

Zone: Survival Mission” presents the three celebrities enduring catastrophic

situations in eight different disaster scenarios for four hours.

Star TV director Cho Hyo-jin, who produced SBS’ “Running Man” from 2010

to 2014 and was behind the Netflix variety program “Busted!” (2018), has

reunited with Yoo for this show. [TheKoreaHerald]
