BTS was the inspiration behind tvN's 'We're Not Strangers', as stated by the show's producer Lee Geun Chan. The show consists of MCs Park Myung Soo, Jun Hyun Moo, Hwang Kyo Ik, Ji Il Joo, and Sang Yeon going around to deliver their hand-made lunch boxes to guests. The basic premise of the show relies on communication. In the press conference for the variety show on February 20th KST, Lee PD stated that while discussing about what kind of program to make, he had heard BTS' 'Paldogangsan' and it brought on the realization that songs were being sung about the communication between the eight provinces of Korea. It led him to thinking about creating a program that relies on communication, especially since their current society tends to stress on their own views.
Hopefully the show does well on its first airing on February 26th!
