Designed as a grand reunion travel variety show among young actors who have worked with Director Kim Seong Yoon is a star-studded project. The actors of ‘Itaewon Class,’ ‘Love in the Moonlight,’ and ‘The Sound of Magic’ are having lots of fun activities in ‘Young Actors’ Retreat’, from revisiting their drama filming locations to having hanok activity and exciting outdoor activities.
Filming Locations of Star-Studded Variety Show ‘Young Actors’ Retreat’
Kim Yoo Jung, Ji Chang Wook, Park Seo Joon Revisit the Filming Locations
At the beginning of the program, Kim Yoo Jung, Ji Chang Wook, and Park Seo Joon were appointed team captains and had to find their teammates in ‘Young Actors’ Retreat’ by picking the correct filming locations.
DanBam 2 and Baekbeom Square Park
Park Seo Joon chose the wrong filming location before he could find Ryu Kyung Soo and Lee Joo Young on the rooftop of DanBam 2. It was a pivotal setting in ‘Itaewon Class,’ and the fictional pub is now a restaurant in business under the registered name ‘Seoul Bam.’ The restaurant serves sundubu jjigae and doeji sukju bokkeum, among other dishes.
Afterward, they headed to Baekbeom Square Park to pick up Kwon Nara. They continued the activity as a team of four before Ahn Byo Hyun joined them in the later episode due to the shooting schedule.
Jeonju Hyanggo and Seodongyo Theme Park
The genius and thoughtful captain of the Moonlight team, Kim Yoo Jung, trusted her instinct and found Chae Soo Bin and Kwak Dong Yeon at Jeonju Hyanggo. This was where Lee Yeong, Hong Ra On, and Kim Byung Yeon (‘Love in the Moonlight’ characters) frequently spent their time together and the hiding place of Byung Yeon and Ra On.
Next, they went to Seodongyo Theme Park in Buyeo, where Jung Jin Young was waiting for them. It was the place where Kim Yoon Sung hid Hong Ra On after the beautiful dance performance. Temporarily, they had a team of four as Park Bo Gum just had arrived from Paris.
Coming from the mysterious amusement park in Yongma Land, Ji Chang Wook went to the alley which featured the rain of money scene in ‘The Sound of Magic’ to meet Choi Sung Eun and Hwang In Youp.
From there, they headed to Yonsei University, where the famous umbrella scene of Yoon Ah Yi and Na Il Deung was shot. They have finally completed the team by picking up Ji Hye Won and Kim Bo Yoon.
After completing the first task of ‘Young Actors’ Retreat,’ each team had lunch in different locations. However, they had to pay for the meals with the money given to them, which was not enough for a team lunch. Therefore, they played another game in the restaurant.
