Jinny’s Kitchen 2” is now on Prime Video and we couldn’t be any more thrilled! Producing director Na Yeong-seok has gathered the cast members Lee Seo-jin, Jung Yu-mi, Park Seo-joon, and Choi Woo-shik for another fun season of the reality series. With the absence of BTS’ V this season, a new intern enters the show– actress Go Min-si. 

“Jinny’s Kitchen 2” opens up a Korean restaurant in a brand new location, serving different dishes from last season. Here are five reasons why you won’t want to miss this reality show on Prime Video.

1. ‘Jinny’s Kitchen 2’ in Iceland

From the tropical Bacalar, Mexico, “Jinny’s Kitchen 2” moves to the land of ice and fire Reykjavik, Iceland.

PD Na explained why Reykjavík, Iceland was selected for this season’s locale saying, “We often talked about preparing a hot bowl of soup in a cold country before. We looked at some countries with colder climates compared to Korea. When we looked into Iceland, we saw that there were no Korean restaurants run by Koreans. Since our goal is to share Korean food outside of Korea, we chose to open a Korean restaurant in the capital of Iceland.” 

The snowy landscape of Iceland is also a plus if you’re reeling from the hot summer.

2. Tried and true chemistry

The cast members of “Jinny’s Kitchen 2” on Prime Video have a lengthy history of working together on other shows like the “Youn’s Kitchen” series. PD Na commented, “It’s hard to maintain a restaurant where the chemistry between everyone is this good. They were able to continue appearing in shows over several years, so I think the bond and collaboration between them has reached this peak. I wanted to show working within these great relationships in the most cheerful way possible.” 

Having worked together for a long time now, the members clearly know each other’s strengths and weaknesses. You know that they’re a close-knit cast since they don’t hold back when making fun of each other.

3. New Intern Go Min-si

In addition to seeing the cast we know and love, we get to see Go Min-si as the new intern. PD Na said he was impressed by Go Min-si’s past work experience as a wedding planner. 

Choi Woo-shik, who was promoted from intern to assistant manager this season, complimented her great work ethic, calling her the “maknae superintern.” 

Go Min-si, who has already shown her diligence in episode 1, described the show as “a rare and precious experience.” She said she wanted to do her best to support the team.

4. Lots of chefs this season

Another new facet to enjoy is watching the team take turns being the chef of the day. Lee Seo-jin explained, “We take turns being the main chef in the kitchen, so we have different specialities which means the menus of the day vary.” 

Park Seo-joon, who often worked in the kitchen in the past seasons, added, “It was fun and refreshing to have the chef of the day change every day. You could experience working in both the kitchen and the hall.” 

Viewers can enjoy seeing each team member tackle both their roles as well as being the chef of the day. 

5. It’s more than just a restaurant

“Jinny’s Kitchen 2” on Prime Video is not your typical restaurant show. The cast members’ journey evokes many different emotions resulting in a feel-good experience. 

PD Na explained, “Our show is a restaurant program but it is not a true restaurant. If the only goal was to share Korean food, we would have brought top chefs from Korea. We want to share Korean food overseas but we also want to show the process, the growth, the chemistry built from it, and how they work together. I think all of these things are just as important as operating the restaurant.” 

“Jinny’s Kitchen 2” is now streaming on Prime Video, with a brand new episode every Friday.
