A new reality show “Shin Seoyuki” (working title) headed by star producer Na Young-seok is set to kick off in September on cable channel tvN. Members of the first season of ever-popular KBS reality show “2 Days & 1 Night” -- Kang Ho-dong, Lee Seung-gi, Eun Ji-won and Lee Soo-geun -- are set to reunite and thrill fans.

Based on the 16th century’s Chinese novel “Journey to the West,” the show is set to reinterpret the story with a modern viewpoint, while traveling across the world. Previously on Aug. 6, the members headed to Xi’an, capital of Shaanxi Province, central China, and stayed there for five days to shoot the first episode of the show.

“I could never sense the long gap,” said Na, adding, “We’ve added a game show concept to the show,” bringing up anticipation among fans.

The show is set to be aired only on the Internet as part of a project run by tvN’s newly launched digital content brand “tvNgo.” The first episode is scheduled to hit the air in early September exclusively on Naver’s video streaming service “TV Cast.”
