Kim Heechul, Lee Hong Gi, Kim Gun Mo, Kim Hyung Bum and Yoo Se Yun will keep their “daddy” jobs in SBS new variety show ”Because I Like You”.
The parenting pilot program “Good Daddy” featured Kim Heechul, Lee Hong Gi, Kim Gun Mo, Kim Hyung Bum and Yoo Se Yun where they took care of a 9-year old girl. The Chuseok special episode won rave reviews from viewers after it’s broadcast on 14th September via SBS television network.
The program will now be a permanent weekly program and be known as “Because I Like You”. The program will continue in the same format where the process of taking care of a 9-year old girl will be shown.
According to the program’s PD, “Actually, we have to consider the reactions from viewers and the ratings plus we want to show a more meaningful program to viewers. Many daddies are now very concerned with parenting and education and we had hope to invite such guests (normal daddies) onto our show.”
“But because it’s variety, it’s hard to balance that with making it meaningful. There are many cases where we have to replace the original cast from the pilot program. But in this case, all of them have expressed that they want to continue and are delighted to know that it’s now a weekly program.”
Filming begun yesterday and is scheduled for broadcast on 1st November at 5.20pm (KST). This program will be shown every Saturday evening and compete against KBS2TV “Star Golden Bell” and MBC “Introducing Stars’ Friends”.
