Director Nah Yung-suk joked, “Youn’s Kitchen was a therapeutic show. It was peaceful and calm. But this is more like a survival show. It’s like watching an office drama.” V commented, “I was expecting to be a server, but I was surprised to cook. In BTS, I’m the worst cook,” hinting at many funny moments ahead.
