The first team, which departed for Peru on June 25, is comprised of middle-aged Korean musicians Yoo Hee-yeol, Lee Juck, and Yoon Sang.

The second group consisting of three young actors Baro, Son Ho-jun, and Yoo Yeon-seok departed for Laos on July 7. The three actors starred in tvN’s hit drama Reply 1994 last year, portraying the lives of college freshmen in the 1990s. The producer of Reply 1994, Shin Won-ho, also joined the trip and will take part in local production. Moreover, CJ E&M announced that producer Shin Hyo-jung, who previously worked on variety shows at KBS and SBS, will also newly join the production cast of Friends Over Flowers.
