One of SBS’ most highly-anticipated program “Village Survival, the Eight” has postponed the premiere due to a baseball game.
On November 9, SBS announced the postponing of the channel’s newest program “Village Survival, the Eight” featuring Yoo Jae-Suk as its main host. While the program was scheduled for a premiere on November 9, it was pushed back a week due to the ongoing baseball season in South Korea.
Because SBS had decided to live broadcast the game between SK Wyverns and Doosan Bears at 6PM, all other programs were pushed back the time. The 8 o’clock news will air at 10PM, “Law of the Jungle” at 10:30PM, leaving no space for “Village Survival, the Eight” to air the same day.
As a result, the program will premiere on November 16 at 11:20PM, KST.
Meanwhile, “Village Survival, the Eight” will feature a total of 9 celebrities, including Jennie of BLACKPINK, actors Im Soo-Hyang, Kang Ki-Young, Song Kang, Kim Sang-Ho, Son Dam-Bi, and comedians Yang Se-Hyung and Jang Do-Yeon.
These celebrities are dropped off at a mysterious town called “Mitchuri” and start to encounter a series of unexpected events for 24 hours. They begin to solve for the missing puzzles using their creativity and intuition, hoping to return to their safe homes.
