Entertainer Noh Hong Chul will soon be making his comeback with a pilot for a new travel reality show set in Europe.
This will be Noh Yong Chul’s return to the small screen after almost a year away. He withdrew from the variety shows “Infinity Challenge” and “I Live Alone” last November after he was caught drunk driving.
His new show, “Lazy Hitchhikers” (working title), tells the story of his European backpacking trip with four other guys, all of whom are strangers. The rest of the cast includes travel writer Tae Won Joon, model Song Won Seok, and two others who are said to be ordinary citizens. It is directed by PD Son Chang Woo, who has worked on shows such as “Infinity Challenge” and “Animals.”
The cast of the show have to travel through Europe on a severely limited budget, and in the preview Noh Hong Chul is even seen sleeping outdoors and trying to sell his possessions on the street to make some cash.
The pilot special is set to air over the Chuseok holiday on September 27 at 11:15 p.m. KST on MBC.
