Royal Pirates’ Moon reflected on the hardships of living in New York.
A press conference for SBS ‘Laws of the City in New York’ was held on June 3rd at 4 PM on the 13thfloor of the SBS Hall Seoul Yangcheon-gu Mok-dong SBS Broadcast Center. On this day, Kim Sung-Soo, Lee Chun-Hee, Jung Kyung-Ho, Baek Jin-Hee, Moon(Royal Pirates), Ailee, John Park, etc cast members and those in charge of directing, Lee Ji-Won PD, Baek Jung-Ryul CP, Ha Seung-Bo (the director of variety programs) attended brightening up the place.
When asked what was the most memorable thing that happened, Royal Pirates Moon answered, “It was really hard at first. I was so hungry that I went through the trash. It was sad. Later on, of course, it felt satisfying though because older bro Chun-Hee (Lee Chun-Hee) made something useful out of some of the trash we had collected.”
Adding honestly “Royal Pirate’s member James came back from filming ‘Laws of the Jungle’ and we still talk about this often. About who had a tougher time… I had a tougher time probably. ‘Laws of the City’ gave me a lot of things to think about mentally.”
The concept of the program ‘Laws of the City’ is not simply a short tour of famous tourist destinations but it is a reality program that looks at various walks of life in a different country, in an unfamiliar place called a big city, explained through the use of humor and moving emotion. The concept of the program is that the cast members live in a particular city for the duration of time allotted and live, taking care of their basic needs for living all on their own.
SBS ‘Laws of the City in New York’ is the 2nd project by Lee Ji-Won PD who also created ‘Laws of the Jungle’. It is highly anticipated because it will realistically show the stars’ ability to survive after being dropped without a penny. The first broadcast will be this coming June 11th.
Translator’s Note: By the way, if you haven’t already seen it, this is what @moonchul had to say in regards to this headline. xD
Translation: “I didn’t go through the trash because I was hungry but because I was trying to find something useful lol”
