HMLYCP, also known as HyeMinLeeYeChaePa, is a Korean Variety show produced by ENA. Premiering its first episode last Sunday on 12th March 2023, HMLYCP Episode 2 is set to release this weekend itself! This highly anticipated Variety Show is titled after the first letter of the cast’s name, who will be entertaining us in HMLYCP – Hyeri, Miyeon, Leejung, Yena, Chaewon, and Patricia.
Although there are many Variety Shows similar to HMLYCP, what sets this show apart is the chemistry between the cast members and the loving bold they share together. Being famous personas online, the show brings out a different side of the HMLYCP cast members, which intrigues the fans all the more!
HMLYCP revolves around the six cast members who will be living together in a remote countryside in the mountains. The show makes the girls follow the “o-do-i-chon” lifestyle, meaning they’re allowed to spend five days in their normal urban city lifestyle, while the other two will be for peace and solace they will find in the countryside, away from the bustling city.
On the show, though living in the mountains, Hyeri, Miyeon, Leejung, Yena, Chaewon, and Patricia are expected to compete in certain games and activities to receive the necessities they require in their home. As they take on these challenges to survive in this remote village, the members strengthen their bond together and find a way to make themselves comfortable despite their location being chilly and secluded from the rest of the world.
HMLYCP boasts of a great cast, which has contributed hugely to the show’s success. As the members themselves have admitted, all six of them are E’s (extroverts), making it easier for them to mingle without exhausting the other with their energy.
Hye ri, the oldest of them all, had also mentioned to the Producer of the show Lee Tae Kyung, on how she wanted to work with people younger than her. She stated that she had always been the younger one in public settings. However, at home, she was the oldest sibling and felt more comfortable in that role. Hence, the cast formed is all younger than Hye ri.
