Actress Choi Ji-woo will star in the next edition of the tvN reality show “Grandpas over Flowers,” alongside Lee Seo-jin.

The show, produced by Na Young-seok, revolves around four elderly actors -- Lee Soon-jae, Shin Goo, Park Geun-hyung and Baek Il-seob -- as they travel overseas with the help of Lee.

The show will be shot in Greece, and the cast is set to return to Korea on Feb. 25. The show will be aired in March.

While Choi has concentrated on dramas and films for most of her career, this will not be her first appearance on a variety show produced by Na.

Her first encounter with Na was on KBS’ “2 Days and 1 Night” in 2011. She then appeared in tvN’s “Three Meals a Day,” which is also produced by the former KBS producer.

“On ‘Three Meals a Day,’ (Choi) and Lee Soon-jae created a good atmosphere, and she worked well with Lee Seo-jin,” a member of the production staff was quoted as saying by the local media.

The official was also quoted as saying that Choi quickly confirmed that she would join the latest edition of the cable television show.

“Unlike Lee, who has played the part of a quiet son, Choi will serve as the charming daughter (of the elderly actors).”
