Jang Yoon Joo, Red Velvet’s Joy, And Song Ji Hyo Talk About Their Growing Friendship
The cast of Lifetime’s “Pajama Friends” talked about their strengthening friendship.
“Pajama Friends” is a reality program about four women who work in different fields in the industry and them enjoying hotel vacations together.
On September 14, a press conference was held for the new reality show with Jang Yoon Joo, Red Velvet’s Joy, Song Ji Hyo, producing directors (PD) Kim Joo Hyung and Yong Suk In in attendance. Cast member Cheng Xiao of WJSN was unable to attend due to an scheduled overseas event.
Kim Joo Hyung and Yong Suk In PD commented, “It feels like they would personally hang out like this and not just for TV. It’s that much of a natural atmosphere.” Kim Joo Hyung PD added, “They’re not different from normal people just because they’re celebrities. They also have the same concerns as people of this generation and talk like us too. I think these kinds of things will be well-communicated.”
On working with Kim Joo Hyung PD again after “Running Man,” Song Ji Hyo said, “We’ve known each other for a while and it feels like we’re a family. I trust him, so I said that I would definitely appear as soon as I received the offer for ‘Pajama Friends.’”
She continued, “I’m very shy, but we were able to quickly get over the feelings of awkwardness thanks to Jang Yoon Joo, who livened up the atmosphere. She worked hard as someone who talks very much. Thanks to her, we were able to open up.”
Song Ji Hyo added, “I’m the type to be shy, but I have the ability to get close to someone after spending time together for a night. We were awkward at first, but okay the next time and I think our relationships are getting stronger. It’s now fun to the point where I look forward to our next day of filming.” Joy also said that she relied on Jang Yoon Joo a lot.
Jang Yoon Joo commented, “Since I’m married and have a kid, they listened to me well and I wanted to give generously if I could give them something. Song Ji Hyo is easygoing in a way that’s not like a celebrity and she’s also pretty. She’s comfortable like a stone Buddha statue.” Jang Yoon Joo also praised Joy, saying that she was deep.
“Pajama Friends” will premiere on September 15 at 11 p.m. KST.
