What happens when one of the world’s hottest K-pop boybands trade their luxurious life of stardom in Seoul for a no-frills, wild, week-long adventure in Australia? E!, the pop culture powerhouse of NBCUniversal International Networks – is about to find out.
2PM Wild Beat, the network’s first Korean series, follows superstars Jun.K, Nichkhun, Taecyeon, Wooyoung, Junho and Chansung as they venture to Australia to celebrate the 10th anniversary of 2PM’s debut. But instead of the fancy 5-star hotels they are accustomed to, the boys will have to – for the first time in their lives – rough it up and survive on their own.
Each of the 10 x 45-minute episodes will feature challenges that the boys have to complete in order to earn money that they can use for their necessities. As the series progresses, the stakes get higher and the boys might risk losing some of the money they earned based on how they fared in the challenges.
Highlights from the series that 2PM fans can look forward to include an exciting game that the boys created from scratch, as well as the boys’ hilarious and dramatic reactions to sharing a hostel room together for the first time. Some of the fascinating locations the group will explore in the Land Down Under include the stunning sights of Uluru and the hustle and bustle of Melbourne.
Will their adventure bring them closer to one another or will conflicts cause them to drift apart? Find out on 2PM Wild Beat.
