Regarding the set up of the program, the producer commented, JTBC ‘Hyori’s Bed and Breakfast,’ “does not have a written script nor will staff give any sort of direction,” in the essence of wanting to capture a true and raw nature.
There are over 17,000 applicants and it has been revealed that celebrities have applied as well. Jung Hyo Min mentioned, “Celebrities have also put in their applications but I can’t reveal who they are…We are concerned whether the celebrities will mix well with the normal participants. Of course, there are no additional bonus points for being a celebrity and all. We will decide on the participants and put them all on equal footing.”
Meanwhile, Producer Jung Hyo Min is currently residing on Jeju Island in search of the perfect spot to film ‘Hyori’s Bed and Breakfast.’
