‘Roommates’ PD Says Shin Sung Woo and EXO Chan Yeol Make an Interesting ComboShin Sung Woo and EXO’s Chan Yeol will show a unique combination as roommates. SBS’s new variety show Roommates will be showing eleven stars sharing the same house. The show will realistically feature the stars’ daily life activities outside of their schedules.
The 11 stars, namely Shin Sung Woo, Lee Dong Wook, Jo Se Ho, Park Min Woo, EXO’s Chan Yeol, Seo Kang Jun, Hong Soo Hyun, 2NE1’s Park Bom, After School’s Nana and Song Ga Yeon divided up into five rooms and began filming at the end of March.
When asked which pair of roommates is the most fun and interesting, Park Sang Hyuk PD named Shin Sung Woo and EXO’s Chan Yeol.
Park Sang Hyuk PD told Newsen on April 10, “They have many commonalities. Even though the age gap is big, Shin Sung Woo knows a lot about the current trend or technology so they connect well.”The PD continued, “Shin Sung Woo has a mom-like character so he cooks for Chan Yeol when he returns home late after all the schedules. They are both also good at making things. Shin Sung Woo majored in sculpture and Chan Yeol was also nicknamed ‘Chan-Gyver’ on The Laws of the Jungle. They both brought a tool set and instruments to the house.”
He said, “Together they can easily make things that the house needs. It will be fun to watch the two, who are 24 years apart, sit across each other making a wooden bench.”
“Rommates” is set to air on April 20.
