Every week, the show's cast members - Lee Soo Geun, Kim Young Chul, Microdot, and Heo Kyung Hwan (filling in for the usual cast member Yoon So Hee) - personally pick up foreign tourists from airports to take them through a unique experience of Korea. 


While getting to know one another on the bus, the show's cast members and the foreign guests chatted about various differences between each countries. One topic that came up was each country's maximum weekly working hours, as Kim Young Chul explained that Korea was currently in the process of decreasing the number from 68 hours to 52. Hearing this, the Belgian tourist said, "In Belgium it's 38." 


What about the minimum wage of each country? In Japan, it's 800 Japanese Yen (7.54 USD). In Korea, it's 7,530 KRW (7.07 USD). In New Zealand, where Microdot is from, it's 16.5 NZD (12.07 USD). In China, it's approximately 18 CNY (3.01 USD), while in Belgium, it's approximately 8.2 euros (10.15 USD).
