2PM's Junsu (or Minjun) and 4minute's Jihyun were two of the idols who were recently whisked away to Korea's hot vacation spot Jeju-do on a romantic vacation for tvN's love variety program, 'The Romantic'.
'The Romantic', which featured non-celebrity bachelors and bachelorettes previously, has decided to conduct a spin-off entitled 'The Romantic & Idol' for its third season. It has been revealed that eight idols were cast for the show and recently finished filming in Jeju-do. The celebrities were able to enjoy dates in cafes and go grocery store shopping while surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the island.
A staff member revealed, "[Viewers] will be able to see the natural sides of idols in their 20s off the stage." This spin off will be directed by Lee Myung Han PD and 'Reply 1997' writer Lee Woo Jung.
'The Romantic & Idol' will premiere on November 11th.
