It’s not every day that you get to wake up in the same country as your favourite K-pop idol. Well, consider this your lucky week.

SHINee’s Onew and DIA’s Chaeyeon are currently in the country for the recording of tvN’s upcoming collaboration with tvN Asia, “Eat, Sleep, Eat” (working title). The culinary programme will be hosted by Baek Jong Won, a famous South Korean chef, who is in Malaysia too.

Not much details have been released about the TV show, but we know that the chef, Onew, and Chaeyeon will be travelling throughout Southeast Asia in search for several ingredients that are unique to the area. At the end, they will be combining the ingredients to form a global recipe.


The cast left Incheon International Airport yesterday (Monday, 11th July) and arrived earlier today (Tuesday, 12th July) at Kota Kinabalu International Airport. They will be in East Malaysia until Friday (15th July) for the first filming.

It is believed that this is Chaeyeon’s first time in Malaysia. However, Onew is no stranger to the country, having visited Sepang just last year with SHINee for the post-Formula 1 Race concert. Previously, the singer was also spotted in Sabah with ZE:A’s Dongjun while they were filming “Law of the Jungle”.

We know, we know, you’re excited about their presence! But remember to not intrude on their personal space and to always respect their privacy, alright? We want them to have an enjoyable trip in the country, after all 🙂
