tvN’s new entertainment show Youn’s Stay filled the Friday night with laughter and healing.
The first episode of Youn’s Stay marked a pleasant start by garnering an average of 9.8% viewer ratings in the Seoul metropolitan area and soaring as high as 12.6%. It also averaged 5.5% and peaked up to 7.6% in the tvN’s target audience ratings of 2049 for men and women, ranking first of any programs aired at the same time.
The first thing that caught the attention was the Hanok’s beautiful scenery. Youn’s Stay, which was separated from the outside by a wall, was divided into the upper area with three Hanok houses and the lower area where there are reception, dining hall and staff’s Hanok house. And of course, this huge map foreshadowed the challenging journey that the cast members’ will face as they are forced to walk back and forth the long route.
Perfect teamwork between Youn’s Stay members also stood out. Youn Yuh Jung greeted customers with her smile, and Lee Seo Jin sorted things out with his skills he picked up as a business major. Jung Yu Mi and Park Seo Joon flamed their passion in the kitchen, while Choi Woo Shik made headlines as an all-rounder intern, taking on the role of everyone’s assistant, mood maker, pickup driver, server and a guide.
However, the trailer heralded chaos in the Youn’s Stay from the first night, raising more curiosities. tvN’s Youn’s Stay airs every Friday at 9:10 pm KST.
