V’s experience on Jinny’s Kitchen
In a previous interview, V looked back fondly upon his time on the original reality show. He told the South China Morning Post: “I had high hopes when I joined the show. And when I got there, I had several new experiences. The show has left me with such unforgettable memories.”
He added: “I was expecting to be a server but I was surprised that they made me cook. Cooking is not an easy job. I had a very difficult time.”
In Jinny’s Kitchen: Team Building, the playing field is finally levelled. V will be competing alongside his castmates as they test their skills while playing different games and exercises.
About Jinny’s Kitchen
The reality show Jinny’s Kitchen introduced Korean street food to the residents of the picturesque town of Bacalar in Mexico. Lee Seo-Jin acted as the business-focused boss, Jung Yu-Mi as the new executive, Park Seo-Jun heading the kitchen, Choi Woo-Shik as the intern, and Kim Taehyung, the ambitious new intern.
The team faced various challenges during their run. They endured weather disruptions during their grand opening, and had to navigate running a restaurant in a foreign land. The show beautifully captured their journey throughout the experience. From the highs of customer rushes and new menu introductions, to the lows of ingredient shortages and internal conflicts.
The series provided viewers with a blend of culinary delights, cultural exchanges, and the personal growth of each cast member.
