[TRANS] 150130 PD Lee Yae Ji Of ‘Pit-a-Pat India’ Says, “The Six Kyu-Line Members Recommended Each Other For The Show”

Regarding the fact that the six members of the infamous ‘Kyu-Line’ were chosen to appear on the new variety show ‘Pit-a-Pat India’, PD Lee Yae Ji said, “They each recommended each other for the show, and that’s how we put the cast together.”

In an official statement that was released on the 30th, PD Lee Yae Ji talked about KBS 2TV’s new variety show ‘Pit-a-Pat India’ and said, “The six members all knew each other very well already, so they recommended each other for the program.”

She continued to say, “They’re all happy and proud to be doing such a meaningful thing together, especially because they’ve never been able to appear on a show together due to their busy schedules. The staff have already visited India to conduct a field study, including safety checks. I can assure you that everyone is going to come back in good health.”

‘Pit-a-Pat India’ will take six friends on a journey into a new world and the final product will be more like a movie than a reality show, with India as the center stage. This project is being spearheaded by PD Lee Yae Ji, who has proven herself through shows like ‘Hello’ and ‘Our Neighborhood’s Masters of Variety and Sports’.

The six members who will visit India are TVXQ’s Max Changmin, Super Junior’s Kyu Hyun, SHINee’s Minho, INFINITE’s Sung Kyu, CN BLUE’s Jong Hyun and EXO’s Suho. PD Lee will have the stars interacting with ordinary citizens in India, like she did in ‘Our Neighborhood’s Masters’, and many are excited to see what will come out of her new challenge.

CP Kim Ho Sang said, “PD Lee Yae Ji is great at planning and creating variety shows that bring ordinary citizens and celebrities together to warm the heart of viewers. ‘Pit-a-Pat India’ will allow PD Lee Yae Ji to explore the culture of India, something that’s been a mystery to the Korean people, and create a brand new type of variety show,” and “Max Changmin, Kyu Hyun, Minho, Sung Kyu, Jong Hyun and Suho are all great friends, but they are all very competitive and have very different characters, being of blood types A, B and AB. Add that to the fact that they’ve never appeared on a variety show together before. This combination is set to create unexpected circumstances and laughs for the viewers.”

‘Pit-a-Pat India’ will begin filming on the 2nd of February and begin airing in the spring of 2015.
