Hyori's Homestay is returning for a second season, and the show's newest star is Girls' Generation's Yoona!

The 27-year-old will take over the role IU filled in season one, which is that of an employee at Lee Hyori and husband Lee Sang Soon's Jeju Island homestay.

Speaking to Naver about the decision to cast Yoona, the show's PD said: "Hyori and Yoona are representative girl group members of their respective generations, so I reached out to Yoona and she immediately accepted."

He added: “I hope that Yoona can come rest and work as human Lim Yoona, rather than singer or actress Yoona.”

The first season of Hyori's Homestay was incredibly successful, setting the record as JTBC's most-watched variety show ever. 

Are you excited for season two?
