South Korea’s entertainment scene is a treasure trove of variety shows, captivating audiences with their wit and excitement. Shows like Running Man and Knowing Bros have already set the stage, but the thirst for more is unquenchable.
Enter Disney+’s newest sensation, The Zone: Survival Mission. This show is a rollercoaster ride featuring comedian Yoo Jae-Suk, actor Lee Kwang-Soo, and Girls’ Generation’s Kwon Yuri. They navigate a disaster-simulated realm called The Zone, facing a gauntlet of unpredictable challenges over eight gripping episodes.
In a one-on-one interview, the stars opened up about their time on set. Yoo Jae-Suk emphasized what makes this show a standout: it’s not about dodging obstacles but embracing them. The Zone: Survival Mission pushes its cast to not just survive but thrive amid adversity.
When it came to their most memorable challenges, Yoo Jae-Suk confessed his fear of ghosts, cold, hunger, and heights. Kwon Yuri, on the other hand, found her co-stars’ exaggerated fears amusing, dubbing it the show’s most challenging yet entertaining element.
Interestingly, the cast felt they didn’t uncover any new layers of themselves during filming. Yoo Jae-Suk and Lee Kwang-Soo considered themselves already self-aware, while Kwon Yuri felt the audience would be entertained by her more rugged and impatient side.
In summary, The Zone: Survival Mission is more than just another variety show; it’s a testament to human resilience and a must-watch for anyone seeking high-stakes entertainment.
