U-KISS member Eli Kim and solo sensation NS Yoonji host the internationally-acclaimed variety show that seamlessly blends K-pop and food in an irresistible recipe for fun. Eli and NS, in the first season of the long-running series, visit some of Korea’s hottest restaurants and talk nutrition, the entertainment industry and, of course, K-pop. In addition to the widely varied cuisine and new themes each week, the show also highlights where the iconic stars go to shop, have fun and work. Between cafes, steakhouses and flower shops, there is enough culture and variety here to make this one of the most mouth-watering trips of Korea on any screen. Plus, in-between delicious meals, the celebrities discuss romance, dish dirt on fellow stars in the entertainment industry, and share poignant facts about their own lives to give a greater sense of the person behind the performance. Guests for the season include the ultra-popular U-KISS (Go! Series), who form a team against their fellow member to help NS Yoonji make the best kimchi, and explosive group Supernova (aka Choshinsung), who film a mini-drama with the hosts where Eli serves as the director.
