China’s Hunan Television’s new show called ‘中餐’, which is currently under accusations of copying tvN ‘Youn’s Kitchen’, has been organized to air in the third quarter of this year.
Recently, Hunan Television announced its program lineup for the second half of the year. Among the programs, ‘中餐’ was included in the list.
The show will portray 5 Chinese celebrities, who go to a foreign country and open a Chinese restaurant. The cast will include the female owner of the restaurant, the manager, two assistant cooks, and a part-time. The crew will run a Chinese restaurant in the foreign country for 15 days. Currently, the proposed countries include Greece, an island in France, and Palau.
As the news was announced, both Korean and Chinese viewers of ‘Youn’s Kitchen’ were enraged as the show seems very similar to ‘Youn’s Kitchen’.
