Entertainer Lee Seung-gi is heading to Croatia for tvN’s “Backpacking Project Part 2, Actress Special.” Lee is once again joining producer Na Young-suk after leaving the talk show “Strong Heart” in April of 2012.

The program is considered the second season of “Grandpas Over Flowers,” which followed veteran actors Shin-goo, Park Geun-hyung, Baek Il-seob, and Lee Soon-jae on trips led by actor Lee Seo-jin. The group traveled around Europe and then ended the season with a trip to Taiwan with a special guest appearance by Girls’ Generation member Sunny.

The four veteran actresses who replace the “grandpas” and join Lee Seung-gi are Yoon Yeo-jeong, Kim Ja-ok, Kim Hee-ae and Lee Mi-yeon.

“Croatia isn’t very well-known in Korea. We believe that it’s a good place to visit with the actresses due to its strong colors, beautiful landscapes, and cultural heritage,” said producer Na after returning from an exploratory trip to the country.

Filming for the show will begin early November while the full program will start airing later in the month.
