tvN Asia’s latest original production, My Dream Trip, welcomes Korean boy group BTOB members Peniel Shin and Im Hyunsik to Hong Kong, where exciting adventures await. Along with the producers of My Dream Trip, the duo shortlisted two lucky fans from an online recruitment in April, co-hosted by tvN Asia and the show’s media partner, Viu, to join them in Asia’s world city, embarking on an unforgettable mission-packed journey together.
The production crew concluded shooting for My Dream Trip in early May. The K-pop duo and their travel buddies were introduced to some of the latest hotspots in Hong Kong, where they explored the art, history and culture of the city; dined at some of the hippest restaurants in town; and walked through Hong Kong’s back garden in the New Territories.
To make the trip more challenging, the four were given only minimal funds at the beginning of the trip. They had to earn money for transportation, meals and even eating utensils by completing missions. Watch the show to find out whether they had to travel around on foot and eat with their bare hands.
In My Dream Trip, Peniel, Hyunsik and their travel buddies discovered a beautiful, youthful and energetic Hong Kong. They meandered through the west part of the Hong Kong Island, which has now been turned into an arty district – ARTLANE – where they admired colourful murals and street art, which are popular with both locals and tourists as sources of inspiration. They also put on the traditional costumes at Hong Kong’s newly opened Xiqu Centre in the West Kowloon Cultural District, a hub designed for the promotion of traditional Chinese theatre and the UNESCO-listed Cantonese opera.
Among the other fascinating locations they visited was Tai Kwun, which is a heritage site comprising the former Central Police Station, Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison, and has been conserved, revitalized and transformed into the Centre for Heritage and Arts. For tourists with a tight itinerary, like the My Dream Trip crew, Tai Kwun is the perfect stop, where they can enjoy Hong Kong’s heritage, contemporary art and leisure elements all in one stop.
tvN Asia’s latest original production My Dream Trip will premiere on tvN in Asia on 6 July 2019 (every Saturday) at 21:00 and on Viu on 6 July 2019. Stay tuned! tvN is available in Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Myanmar and Sri Lanka.
