Food series ‘Let’s Eat’ to bring back your lost appetite
Viewers will be craving for night snacks with their stomachs growling, as the popular “Let’s Eat” series will soon make its return.
The third installment of the series “Let’s Eat 3: Begins” will soon start airing after a two-year break, reports K-Pop Herald. Yoon Doo-joon from “Radio Romance” has been playing the lead role for the three consecutive seasons and has now become a symbol of the series.
The new season will be going back to 2004, when the lead character Goo Dae-young was a freshman; the story describes how Goo learned to truly appreciate food under the guidance of a classmate who is a food connoisseur.
“I somehow, from the start, knew that there will be the third season,” Yoon joked. “I’d like to continue the series for a long time. There aren’t many seasonal TV series in Korea. But this one is already in its third season. It’s an honor for me to be in the work.”
The series is likely to be Yoon’s last work before he joins the Army. The enlistment date hasn’t been set yet, but he is likely to enlist sometime this year. The producer revealed his willingness to wait for Yoon for the next season.
“As I have directed the second season as well, this season means a lot to me. The third season is to showcase summer cuisines, bringing back the appetite that was lost due to the hot weather. As the main story is set on 2004, it will be fun for viewers to see what college life was like at the time,” producer Choi Gyu-sik said at a press event.
“This show is now unimaginable without Yoon. If the third season garners good responses, the fourth season is likely to come. We will wait for Yoon,” Choi added.
While Yoon has been maintaining his post, the actress for the lead female role has been changing throughout the seasons. Following Lee Soo-kyung and Seo Hyun-jin, Baek Jin-hee will be featured as Yoon‘s “meal mate.”
“I was happy to feature in a series that I liked so much. Seeing Yoon eat in front of me was like watching TV at first,” Baek said, explaining her role as the food connoisseur friend who guides Yoon to the way of being a foodie.
The series, starting its first season in 2013, reflected the trend of emerging single-person households and the popularity of food-related videos. It has been well-received by viewers for introducing delicious dishes and the stories behind them. JB
