Sechs Kies, who has been loved for a long time, will challenge their first cohabitation in 23 years since their debut. The group who have never lived together before will camp together and cook/eat three meals a day. Expectations are already high for the cohabitation like of Sechs Kies under the lead of Eun Ji Won, who is known for his nickname “Eun Ji Anxiety (Eun Ji Won + Separation Anxiety)” as he hates hosting the entertainment show alone. Three Meals Four Guys (working title) will premiere on May 15, and a full version will be released later on producer Na Young Suk’s YouTube channel.
