Details about the show was shared during the presscon held last Sept 26,2017 at Chaos, City of Dreams.
tvN Asia’s brand-new original production, One Night Food Trip – International Edition is coming to the Philippines! A spin-off of the popular Korean travel programme of the same name, One Night Food Trip – International Edition added local Asian celebrities into the mix to further hype up the competition. One Night Food Trip – International Edition has already set sail to Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia; with the final foodie “battlefield” set in the Philippines. The programme will premiere exclusively on tvN Asia on October 10, 2017 (Tuesday) at 23:00 (GMT+8); with the segment shot in the Philippines set to air on December 5, 2017 (Tuesday).
Korean fashion and beauty icon Sandara Park, better known by her stage name Dara, will join forces with her brother, Park Sang-hyun, a singer/songwriter better known by his stage name Thunder, to complete as many missions as they can throughout their escapades. Playing against the Korean stars are Grace Lee, a Korean television host and radio disc jockey working in the Philippines; and Filipino-Indian Filipino radio and television personality Sam YG. The celebrity teams will complete in a 48-hour travel tour around the beautiful Philippines with three main goals – EAT, PLAY and COMPETE!
Team Dara/Thunder will begin their mission-packed feast in Palawan and will make their way up north to the city of Manila; while Team Grace/Sam will conquer Cebu first, then head down south to Davao city. Both teams will be able to experience everything local—from culture, food, and attractions. Viewers will be able to witness the magnificence of the Philippines through a different angle as the show merges fabulous and fun, enabling everyone to go beyond the typical touristy activities. The teams will also get the chance to observe the unique local cultural heritage that is different from the rest of Asia, go on a shopping frenzy, enjoy a night out clubbing, as well as savour great varieties of food, from local delicacies to Michelin-starred delights, such as Nobu Restaurant located City of Dreams – Manila.
The Philippine leg of One Night Food Trip – International Edition will fly exclusively with Cebu Pacific Air, the Philippines’ leading carrier. Cebu Pacific has the widest domestic network which made traveling and shooting from one island to another easier with seamless inter-island connections, sparing the hosts and crew from flying to bigger airport hubs just to move across the Philippines. Aside from a direct flight between Manila and Incheon, Cebu Pacific also flies directly from Incheon to Kalibo and Cebu, making it easier to get to popular beach destinations like Boracay Island and Mactan Island; or to 34 other domestic destination and 26 international destinations across the rest of Asia, Australia, Middle East and the United States.
So what are you waiting for? Come follow the trails of Dara, Thunder, Grace and Sam in One Night Food Trip – International Edition!
