At first they were total strangers, but after spending some quality “girls’ nights” in hotel rooms, four members of new variety show “Pajama Friends” became more than just friends.

Starring actress Song Ji-hyo, Joy of Red Velvet, Cheng Xiao of WJSN and top model Jang Yoon-joo, “Pajama Friends” centers on showcasing the four celebrities’ developing relationship as they enjoy “hocance,” a Korean neologism meaning spending a vacation in a hotel. Produced by director Kim Joo-hyung, a mastermind behind popular variety shows such as “Running Man” and “Busted,” the show
will also feature the stars enjoying various facilities in local luxury hotels such as outdoor swimming pools, rooftop bars, massage services and spas.

It was first time for the four stars from all different entertainment circles and personalities to mingle, but it was just a matter of time for them to break the ice, according to Joy.

“I was worried at first because of my shy personality. But Jang and Song, who are older than me, led me well. In the beginning, Jang approached me and pushed me to spill my inner thoughts, asking me
‘Why are you so quiet?’ and about Song, I found out that we have similar personalities. It is great to have sister from whom I can learn a lot,” said the Red Velvet singer during a press conference for the program in Seoul on Friday. Cheong Xiao couldn’t attend the event due to conflicting schedule.

“Actually, I’ve been a great fan of Cheong Xiao. Thanks to her bright personality, we became friends very fast,” she added.

Song and Jang also said shared about their first encounter with the “Pajama” members.

“I think spending nights together actually helped us a lot to get closer. I’m really looking forward to next shooting,” said Song. Jang, the eldest, also expressed her hope to make memorable moments with the members through the program.

“My first goal was to share whatever I have with the members. Excitement, that was my first impression I had for them,” Jang said.

“Pajama Friends” will air its first episode on Lifetime Korea, a channel launched by US-based global content company A+E Networks on Saturday at 11 p.m. KST. It will also air in about 30 other countries through Lifetime Asia.
